Waylon Jennings, Buddy Holly, and a '58 Ariel twin


 
NEW YORK (August 20, 2014) – Guernsey’s Auction House will resurrect the aura of Outlaw Country megastar Waylon Jennings on October 5 at the majestic Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix with an auction of more than 2,000 of the country legend’s personal belongings. The centerpiece of the spectacular collection is the limited edition 1958 Ariel Cyclone motorcycle that originally belonged to Jennings’ best friend and mentor Buddy Holly. The Ariel is beautifully preserved with just over 4,000 original miles, and has not been ridden in over twenty years, serving as a symbol of a pivotal time in American music history.


To read the rest of the story and find out how Waylon Jennings ended up with Holly's Ariel go to the Motorcycle Classics website at: http://www.motorcycleclassics.com/classic-motorcycle-events/remembering-waylon-motorcycle-auction.aspx#ixzz3EKBhSqZq
