DAH Hillclimber  (1932)  Estimated Value: 200K  Estimated Units: 25   Speed: N/A   Hillclimbing as a form of motorcycle competition has become something of a footnote to history. With bikes typically home-built, hillclimber cycles made in the factory were a rare event. This 1932, DAH Hillclimber combines a rare 45 cubic inch, overhead valve arrangement, never used on street models. It is believed about 25 examples, in various configurations, were eventually built.
