New York’s Chris Christie sold his entire collection of motorbikes for a whopping $25.2 million on Friday at Christie’s auction house.
The Christie’s collection of about 200 bikes has been on display at Christie in Manhattan for almost a decade, but this is the first time it has been sold on a public auction house, and it was Christie’s last big sale.
The collection, which includes the iconic CB750 and the iconic Veyron, is considered by collectors to be Christie’s most valuable collection.
It includes Harley Davidson, Triumph, Ducati, Kawasaki, Ducatis, Suzuki, Kawifis, Kawazis, Yamaha, Yamaha XS250s, and more.
Christie sold the bikes for a cool $24.5 million in 2010, but the sale was a big success for the New Jersey billionaire.
The sale also marked the end of a 15-year hiatus in Christie’s world, which included the Christie’s Golden State motorcycle show and the annual Christie’s Christie’s Auction in Los Angeles.
It also marked Christie’s return to the motorbike scene after he sold his share of the Triumph brand in 2012.
The auction house is currently undergoing renovations, and Christie’s son, Michael, will be in charge of the auction house for the next three months.
It’s expected the Christie estate will sell the collection in the next few months.
