J. Wood & Company will hold what’s looking to be the auction of the year when it auctions off the personal collection of vintage motorcycles belonging to Mike Harper, founder of legendary Harper’s Moto Guzzi in Greenwood, Missouri, 25 miles southeast of Kansas City. This is not an estate auction: Mike Harper is alive and kicking and doing fine, but he and his wife, Alice, decided it was time to retire, so his incredible collection of 325-plus motorcycles, parts and memorabilia will be sold in a no-reserve auction at Harper’s Sept. 8-9, 2016.

Intriguing bikes in the collection include this fantastic 500cc Moto Guzzi Ercole three-wheeled dump truck.
