If you think your new luxury bike might not be just enough to show the world that you command respect, you should definitely look for something so exclusive that only a handful of people can afford to buy. While the one-off, legendary British-made Vincent Black Lightning motorbike couldn’t manage to break the world speed record in 1950, it’s going to break the world record for the most expensive motorcycle ever sold at auction this Sunday. Experts are expecting the Vintage Black to go for between $400,000 and $600,000 at Bonhams‘ Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show sale in Stafford, UK. The legendary bike is in excellent condition. The current record is held by a 1915 Cyclone that went for $520,000.
