been working in the motorcycle industry since 1965
Jerry and his wife, Dee
started J. Wood & Co Auctioneers in 1980 selling
motorcycle shops, as well as machine shops and
factories. In the 1980’s the vintage motorcycle
market started to take off. You could find a Triumph
Bonneville in one place for $500 and another
advertised for $5,000. In 1988 they came up with the
idea of running a motorcycle consignment auction
during Daytona Bike Week. Their goal was to offer
the bikes in a nationally advertised auction with no
false bidding to determine the true market value for
vintage motorcycles. What they did was to put each
bike on the block, get all of the bids in, and if it
met the owner’s reserve, then it was sold.

bike, establishing fair market value. This system
was met with great approval from the buyer’s and
seller’s alike and the business took right off.

Wood & Co has conducted many auctions all over the
country including large private collections,
estates, and shops of all sizes. They still run the
auctions the way they would want them run as
customers. Highly experienced motorcyclists with no
false bidding or BS. Fair and square have worked for
38 years. With Jerry’s son Jeff and his wife Jackie
