J. Wood May Auction – Who’s Who of Motorcycle History

J. Wood Auction of Collector BikesThe list of motorcycle marques that will be coming up for auction May 7 and 8 by J. Wood and Co. in Cuba, Mo., reads like a Who’s Who of motorcycle history: Harley-Davidson, Indian, Excelsior, Reading Standard, Cushman, Simplex, Panther, Pope, Deluxe, Yankee, BSA, Triumph, Norton, Velocette, Greeves, Rickman, Matchless, AJS, Dot, NSU, Adler, CZ, Moto Morini, Ducati, Benelli, Moto Guzzi, Ossa, Bultaco, Premier, Honda, Yamaha, Can AM, DKW and various sidecars and other parts and engines. The collection reportedly spans from 1905 to 1975.

In addition, there reportedly will be over 100 early outboard motors, cars, engine collection for motorcycles, cars, airplanes, and even stationary. The sale is of one man’s lifetime collection and will be sold without reserve.

“We have been contracted to sell the contents of five buildings chock full of motorcycles and parts, as well as lots of other treasure, all without reserve to the highest bidder. The buildings are so full that we can’t even see all of what is there yet. We will be adding photos and listings to our website as we uncover the items,” said Jerry Wood.

J. Wood Auction of Collector Bikes and Parts Coming in May“This is a major hoard that was packed away by a man who was a Triumph dealer at one time. He started collecting long ago as we have found a fairly large amount of very rare early American motorcycles and parts. Many of these early bikes are projects as we find frames and bodywork for the engines. I don’t know how many engines that we have yet, but I would guess that it is near a thousand.

“This is a really large collection that includes not only motorcycles but a huge inventory of parts both used and NOS. Everything will sell, so bring money and a truck, the stuff is not shiny, so you can expect to be able to buy something and perhaps a lot,” he added on the sale description on the J. Wood and Co. site.
