John Parham’s Barn Finds are going up for public auction.

Motorcycles, Cars, Parts and Historical Artifacts to be auctioned off in a live and online auction on November 14.

The lot list for the Parham Barn’s Auction posted online today, and it’s amazing! The family of John Parham, founder of J&P Cycles, has hired Liquid Asset Partners to hold an auction of Parham’s “barn finds” – personal property that’s never been shown in the National Motorcycle Museum. The Live and Online auction will be from John’s “back barns” with motorcycles, bicycles, parts, gas pumps, cars and more barn finds that never made it into the already full National Motorcycle Museum.

John Parham created an amazing legacy with the creation of J&P Cycles and his direction of the National Motorcycle Museum. Liquid Asset has been hired to help empty the ‘back barns’ so the Parham family can focus their energy on running the Museum. Though none of the sale items are Museum property, Jill Parham will be donating 20% of the net proceeds of the sale to the National Motorcycle Museum.

Plenty of treasures up for grabs in the public auction of John Parham's Barn Finds.
