Shop auctions 1933 Royal Enfield V-twin

A 1933 Royal Enfield V-twin motorcycle is one of about 400 motorcycles and scooters in a no-reserve auction June 25 in Columbia, Tenn.

The motorcycles (and cars and even a crashed airplane) were part of the S&G Custom Cycles collection started before 1919 when seller Sam Goodman's grandfather opened a motorcycle business.

"Sam’s dad passed away recently and Sam had to make a choice between running the family’s 700-acre farm or the bike shop. He has chosen to retire and run the farm and has contracted us to sell this entire collection at no reserve," auctioneer Jerry Wood said.

He called it the biggest collection of antique and classic motorcycles to be offered at a public auction since 1991. The motorcycles are in every possible condition, "perfect originals, nice restorations, old paint, bikes that need some work and outright project and parts bikes," Wood said.

"The list is not complete or perfect and we will update it as we find more items and make corrections. We did guess on some of the years," he added.

Auctioneers J. Wood & Co. listed these motorcycles:

1934 Brough Superior
1933 Royal Enfield V-Twin
1948 Scott Flying Squirrel
1947 Indian Chief
1971 Indian 50
50 Harley-Davidsons
50 Hondas
9 Cushmans
10 Allstates

The auction will start at 9 a.m. Thursday, June 25, at 1114 Galloway St., Columbia, Tenn. Inspection is 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, June 25.
