Evans Brasfield's Motorcycles Are For Sale
Auctions are live and 100% of the proceeds go to the family.
In the aftermath of Evans' passing, his family has had to make a lot of hard decisions. One of which was deciding what to do with Evans' beloved motorcycles – his KTM 790 Duke and Kawasaki KLX300. And when I say beloved, I mean it. Evans had reached a renaissance in his riding career. With his children older and more independent, he was able to rediscover his love for motorcycling. The 790 Duke gave him a lot of joy, and upgrading it to meet his definition of a 790 Duke R was a source of pride for him.
Meanwhile, the KLX300 opened a door for Evans that he didn't even know he'd want to pass through – the world of off-road riding. After a career of keeping it on the tarmac, the KLX was the perfect gateway to the world of dirt and he loved every minute of it. And Evans being Evans, he couldn't leave the bike stock. Like the KTM, he took pride in modifying the KLX to meet his needs, in this case building it into a lightweight adventure bike.
With Evans no longer with us, his family has decided that the motorcycles are better off being ridden and enjoyed by somebody else, so, they are up for sale. Iconic Motorbike Auctions have taken the lead in facilitating the sale of both bikes.
You can find the auction for the KTM 790 Duke here: https://iconicmotorbikeauctions.com/auction/2019-ktm-790-duke/
And the Kawasaki KLX300 auction can be found here: https://iconicmotorbikeauctions.com/auction/2021-kawasaki-klx-300/
If you're not familiar, Iconic is an auction house specializing in motorcycles and frequently handles the buying, selling, and transportation of bikes from all around the world.
Both auctions end on January 27, with the Kawasaki ending at 11 am PST and the KTM at 12pm noon PST. The reserve prices for both bikes have already been met, so if you're interested, the bikes will go to the highest bidder. And although we're biased, you really are getting a lot of motorcycle for the money. Rest assured that 100% of the proceeds from both sales will go directly to the family, though it's also worth pointing out that Iconic does charge a 7% buyer's fee to whoever ultimately ends up winning the bikes.
Good luck, and thank you to any and all of those who decide to place bids on the bikes. Know that your generosity is going to a good cause. And if you're not interested in the motorcycles but would like to help Evans' family, please consider donating to this GoFundMe.
