1924 Neracar Model B Beautiful Very Original Condition

Rw Auto Classics is proud to offer this 1924 Neracar Model B for your consideration. You will be forgiven if you never seen, heard or even knew they existed before this auction as they rarely come up for sale, and recent surviving totals are estimated to be in the low triple digits. This Neracar is a model B and was produced in Syracuse New York 92 years ago and is what i would call simply amazing. Many unusual design features were implemented in the building of the Neracar, and also some "firsts" in motorcycle design. Hub center steering, low slung frame, friction drive transmission and an overall impressive "look" make the Neracar what it is today and extremely collectible.
This example was purchased by me from the original family that has owned her since new. The gentleman i purchased her from was the nephew of the original owner who bought her new back in 1924, sadly he passed on in the early 30's and the Neracar went into a family storage. She was taken out from time to time during family functions and such, ridden around, and then back to storage. The original owners have stated that the bike has actually seen very little use since new! When i purchased her, a quick carb cleaning was all that was needed and she fired right up, and actually runs quite well. Driving a Neracar is quite the experience as standard motorcycle operation does not apply here! This thing is super fun and draws a huge crowd wherever she goes. Most people have never seen anything like it and most of the surviving examples of these reside in museums.
Upon first examination i couldn't believe how original and well preserved this ancient motorcycle is. I was told the bike has never been painted, and has a certain patina to it that is perfect just the way it is! The body and panels are very straight and have only surface scale but no structural rust. Still has the original handlebar grips that say "Neracar" on them. Original seat, engine, rims etc. The lights even work!! The non-original items that i know of are as follows. The light switch is not original; The tires were changed to Cokers for safety reasons and have seen little use. There is a non-original spark plug installed but the original one is actually included!!!
I am in no way a Neracar authority but the bike seems to be mostly complete and is actually in running driving shape. She starts right up and drives pretty good for something as old as it is. Brakes work surprisingly well. Steering is a bit different but easy to get used to. Included is an original parts catalog, original tool pouch, tire pump and the original spark plug. This bike truly deserves to go into a collection where it is appreciated for the landmark in motorcycling history that it is. These bikes have appreciated significantly and make a great investment and or addition to any collection. This bike is sold on a "Bill of Sale" as an original title was not issued in 1924, The previous family has never had one. Please ask any and all questions as im sure i forgot some stuff and as always feel free to call the shop at 425-556-0261 and we will be glad to talk to you about the bike. Thanks for looking and happy bidding!!
