I was watching SRK Cycles latest YouTube video about a Pennsylvania motorcycle tech school going out of business and buying at the auction. They walk in the front door at 1:25 and there is a BOC S1. Looks to be a display piece. Maybe owned by the school owner? They also had 10 or so teaching evo motors that went for about $700/ea.

That auction was just right up the road from me.
I was going to guess maybe Randy Texter's old bike but it has Erik Buell's name on the number plate.
I think a guy at work said it went for 9 grand.

Thatís market IMO. Most of what he mentioned in the video was going close to retail.

The #63 bike is sleeping soundly in it's new home . . . .

That entire Battle of Champions event was a barrel of fun . . . I still have a bunch of those long sleeve shirts somewhere and all the Snap-On stuff the Harley folks told me to "get rid of" . . I did. :-)

I don't know where $9K came from. An auction site shows the hammer price of $4500+15%. A bargain to me.

That would be a bargain at 4500!

That auction was about 15mins up the road from me. I thought about bidding on a few things, but have too many irons in the fire with other projects right now. They had a lot of nice stuff up for sale.....a bunch of little TTR's, couple Snap-on motorcycle lifts, and nice tool boxes.

Glad to hear the S1 found a proper home. I was going to post it up here when I found out about the auction, but didn't want to jinx anyone that was planning on bidding.

That is an accurate statement.

Honestly, I was amazed how little it was publicized. That's probably a big reason why it remained such a bargain!

I am happy to stand corrected on the price on the S1, I heard it from a fellow at work so guess he was mistaken.

Did it already have that swingarm at the event mentioned in the article?

NO, look at the first set of pics, with them all lined up at the starting line. You can see the old style swingarm on all the bikes.

Didn't have the chin fairing at the event either.

Maybe I should post the pic I took with the bike in the background 20+ years ago at the event (once I get home tonight...)?

Not home yet, but in a safe space with a good caretaker.

Thought so, but it was kinda hard to tell from the picture. Looking at it now however, yes it's more narrow.

Yeah, it's fine on the X1, but I never felt that it made the S1 look any better.

Here's a pic I took over 20 years ago when I worked the Battle of Champions. I pitted for #50 Billy Graef.

BoC S1W

Sharp eyes will notice Reg Kittrelle next to the #63 bike.

And here's a pic from an issue of Battle2Win:

46 and 63
