Last weekend the Lee Hartung collection was auctioned off. Unfortunately we were late on the trigger letting you know that, but luckily Bob Chiluk made it there before the auction and documented the awesome mass of stuff Hartung gathered over the years. In the scrap and general hauling business, Hartung saved everything from pedal bikes to cars to motorcycles, and radial engines.
Hartung had a good eye on the right stuff to keep. According to Bob Chiluk, Hartung collected a lot of this stuff from wealthy Chicago residents who were junking it. Hell, there is an ancient Ford in this gallery with an experiemental body on it that used some aluminum panels. Unobtanium! If you dig old bicycles and motorcycles, like the Indian below, this gallery will blow your mind.
