Buddy Holly and Waylon Jennings-owned 1958 Ariel Cyclone heads to auction
Anyone who has followed music in the last 60 years knows the story of Buddy Holly's demise in February, 1959, along with the fact that country singer Waylon Jennings had given up his seat on that fated plane, ultimately saving his life and leading to the death of J.P "Big Bopper" Richardson. Perhaps riding on the wave of interest in celebrity-owned motorcycles, as evidenced in the recent $100,000 selling price of a Steve McQueen-owned Harley-Davidson in Monterey, the estate of Waylon Jennings has scheduled a Jennings memorabilia auction that includes a 1958 Ariel Cyclone purchased by Buddy Holly in the months before his death.

He's even done at least one Farewell Tour and Final Farewell Concert, before pulling a Favre and hitting the road and the recording studio once more.
