It looks like a neglected bike long since consigned to the shed, but this two-wheeled contraption is worth a small fortune.
The ancient bicycle is a 1906 Indian Camelback, one of the first ever two-wheeled motorised machines and one which is hugely desirable to collectors.
Just 1,698 of the rare cycles were produced 105 years ago, with its ‘unrestored’ state meaning the relic could fetch as much as $75,000 at auction.
The motorcycle is going under the hammer at Bonhams in Las Vegas, on January 12.
Ben Walker from Bonhams said: ‘This motorcycle is in such demand because of its condition and to restore it would actually take value off.”
