Meet Buzz Kanter, our new Financial Planner
We all know Buzz Kanter – not necessarily personally – and bow to his knowledge of all things V-twin, especially Harley. Well, there’s nothing stands in Buzz’s way and he’s now branched out into helping us with our investment strategy. And he’s darned right! So, meet Buzz Kanter, our new Financial Planner
In an article in the august organ, American Iron, Buzz advizes that given the volatility of the global markets, anyone with even a vague interest in H-D or Indian bikes might want to look around for a vintage machine. As he says, there are still plenty lying around in backs of barns and elsewhere and we can only imagine the excitement of finding one (we’re still looking). But the investment potential should not be sniffed at. If you hang on to one of these motorcycles, you could be sitting on a tidy, appreciating investment vehicle (see what we did there?).
To give an example, Bonhams, the UK auctioneers have a sale in Stafford, UK, in October. They’re selling a bunch of motorcycles from a private collection, the Lonati Collection. Some fine old Indians and Harleys as well as Henderson’s, Thor’s, Pierces, etc. And some eye-watering prices too! Take a look.
Estimate $34,000 – 41,000
Or, if you fancy a rare Indian, how about
Estimate $28,000 – 37,000
Then, the day after – and we know it’s not one of our own – there’s this
And get the estimate….
$330,000 – 370,000!!!
And to add even more street cred, here’s an article from CNBC just a couple of days ago that confirms what the man says (okay, it’s about cages but the rap’s the same). So stick with Buzz, you can’t go wrong. Move over Merrill Lynch, there’s a new kid on the block! And he’s a nice guy too.
