I just got back from Idaho where I found an unbelievable treasure trove of British bike parts and accessories along with about 70 motorcycles. The bikes are in all conditions from good complete machines that just need a good cleaning to rolling basket cases. The sheer amount of the parts and accessories was sensory overload. There were four buildings full, some organized and some with big piles.
There are six 40 to 50 foot trailers that are packed from the floor to the ceiling with brand new and used parts. We have people out there now unpacking those trailers and we will be adding photos and lists to our web site as the stuff gets into the daylight. This inventory was purchased from distributors, dealers and collectors over the years. Some of it has never been unpacked since it was loaded in.
Folks, there is a lot of good stuff here and I do hope that many of you will come out to buy the inventory and make good use of it. The airport (LWS) is only about 4 miles away and has national service from Delta and Alaska Airlines. Phil Read will have his 46-foot trailer on site and will be able to haul bikes and parts to the East Coast. Just as a sample, I found lots of hard to find items like racks full of British Dunlop K70's in the good sizes as well as the K81 and TT100 and trial universal and other tires for those correct restorations.
If you need to make money, you need to get in your truck or make those plane reservations to get to Idaho and get this stuff, there is plenty for everybody. The property is being sold and it all has to be sold to the highest bidder. A lot of the parts will be sold by the pallet-load similar to Buffalo NY last year, but a lot more of it. Please feel free to e-mail or call for more information if you need it.Jerry Wood
