Reasons to Invest


  • We believe we are one of the fastest-growing online auction companies, with over $7.5 million in sales in 2021 (up from $4.9 million the year prior) and we believe we’re on track to exceed $10 million in 2022 


  • We’re confident that between our newly added live auction space, our apparel business, and additional white glove services, we can continue to grow our YOY gross sales


  • Our largest online auction competitor’s gross sales exceeded $800 million. And while they own the car market, we feel we are one of the main owners on the motorbike side and offer a much larger array of white-glove services

overview


Iconic Bikes: Every Bike is Iconic to someone 

g


If you are a motorbike enthusiast - you have likely heard of us.


That’s because, in our view, we find the rarest, coolest bikes on the planet - giving them new life with our 13-person team. What started as a dealership and gallery has evolved into a world-renowned online auction site, service center, and local destination topped off with white-glove services.



Our auction site continues to see new clients and with over 1,000 motorbike sales since January of 2020, we’ve become a trusted source for anything motorbike-related. The site features real-time proxy bidding, with a classified section allowing the ability for instant purchase. It also serves as a dashboard for our online shop, movie rentals, service inquiries, bike reviews, and social media recaps. It continues to grow with approximately 16-20 listings a week and has an 80+% sell-through rate.


We started a social media account that inspired a cult-like appeal, with as many as 19 million impressions a month on Instagram alone. It’s an active group with many likes, comments, purchases, and follow-through clicks to our auction site. Online fans can also enjoy us in-person, as our appointment-only showroom with over 275 motorbikes doubles as a museum with ever-changing bikes on display. A membership program allows our closest fans to enjoy Iconic in an intimate way, whether it’s access to our lounge, group rides, or even private track days.


We believe no other auction site offers our level of white-glove services, which make us a one-stop shop for our clients: we get daily requests for service work, paint work, custom builds, import/export, domestic transport, and sourcing/placing of rare motorbikes. At Iconic Motorbikes, customers not only find their dream bike, but are also able to have it fully serviced and delivered ready to ride. If you can dream it up, our team will make it happen.



the problem


The live auction space is a flawed industry 

According to our research and personal experience, the live auction space has been traditionally tainted, flawed, and unethical. Our clients express concerns about the lack of background information, inadequate documentation, difficulty with inspections, lack of follow-up with post-sale paperwork, and chandelier bidding, all of which can frequently lead to a customer who regrets their purchase and sours them on future business.


Transportation consistently falls short of expectations 


Our clients constantly give us positive feedback on the ease of buying, selling, and servicing their motorbikes – we’ve had bikes sent from as far as New York and Florida to us just for maintenance as our service shop is so well-regarded with specialty motorbikes. However, transportation is a nightmare due to a general lack of accountability: no tracking information, false promises, damage issues, and missed deadlines from independent shippers frustrate our clients and affect our cash flow, as the longer one of our acquisitions sits on the road, the longer we are floating the inventory expense.

THE solution


Introducing Iconic Live

In the spring of 2023, Iconic Motorbikes plans to change the face of online auctions with “Iconic Live”, an event we will launch in alliance with the world-renowned Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum in Birmingham, Alabama. They are creating the Revelry at Barber, what they want to be “the greatest motorsports celebration in the United States”, and Iconic will be involved in two ways. The Revelry at Barber will be host to Iconic’s first live auction, and after the event is over Iconic will host an exclusive 2-day track event for our clients at Barber’s legendary 2.38 mile race course. Over the course of just a few days, our clients will be able to experience an incredible motorsports party, purchase the motorcycle of their dreams at Iconic Live, and then ride that dream bike at one of the best courses in the United States – that is what Iconic is all about.


Introducing Iconic Transport


Our next goal is to bring transportation in-house with a two-pronged approach. We have developed a proprietary crating solution to better utilize LTL networks for clients who want the best balance of efficiency and cost. For clients who need the ultimate in service, we will acquire trucks and trailers to cover the country, delivering their motorbikes in a timely manner with regular updates.


This also benefits Iconic as we will be able to bring our own acquisitions for sale or service in much quicker, speeding up our turnaround on investments. 


Longer term, we plan to establish an “Iconic East” location on the east coast to initially serve as a transportation hub with the ability to grow into a storage facility, service center, and sister location to our current showroom at the Santa Monica Airport.



the market


Motorbike icons in a niche market


When it comes to our market, our typical customer looks something like this:


  • Average Age: 42
  • $195,000 average annual income
  • Owns 3+ bikes


The largest motorcycle-specific live auction in the US reached $22 million in sales this year over a four-day period. Our largest online auction competitor’s gross sales exceeded $800 million in sales. And while they own the car market, we feel we are one of the main owners on the motorbike side and offer a much larger array of white-glove services. Our membership program is constantly growing so other passionate enthusiasts can experience all the exciting things that Iconic is involved in.

Our traction


Our client base continues to expand…Worldwide!

We’re proud to share that in the last 6 months:

  • We went from 2-3 auctions a day to 5-7 on a given day
  • We just completed a remodel of our hangar to better accommodate our growing staff as we’ve added 3 more employees


Along with that, we have hit major growth and social media milestones that have helped us organically cultivate a cult-like following across the world.


  • We have bought and sold motorbikes in over 20+ countries and counting
  • 1.6 million monthly post reach, with up to 19 million monthly impressions

why invest


Iconic Motorbikes is keeping the throttle pinned

g


We think Iconic Motorbikes has already taken a stronghold on the international motorbike industry. Now, it’s time to expand our white-glove services to handle transport nationwide (and worldwide), while offering stellar club member benefits.


Iconic has established ourselves in the online auction world and is well-poised to take on live auctions with an understanding of what motorcyclists want in a bike as well as an experience, topped off with our unique white-glove service that can handle any requests. 


With our strong following and growing reach in social media, we are constantly approached with opportunities to acquire collections, estate sales, and rare motorbikes. This segment of our business yields solid margins, and with additional funding we can continue the momentum.


We have strong established relationships with the major players in the motorcycling industry, a passionate customer base, and a business-minded team. At Iconic Motorbikes, we believe we fill all the voids to meet consumer demand, and our growth has backed that up. Now it’s time to scale: join us, and invest in the idea that every bike is Iconic to someone.

HOW INVESTING WORKS

Cancel anytime before 48 hours before a rolling close or the offering end date.

WHY STARTENGINE?

REWARDSWe want you to succeed and get the most out of your money by offering rewards and memberships!
SECUREYour info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!
DIVERSE INVESTMENTSInvest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
