Earl's Cycle Center

The collection of approximately 1,800 motorcycles and a huge quantity of parts both NOS and used is the largest collection that has ever been offered that I know of from a single consignor and it will be all No Reserve. Our contract is to empty the properties, there are two and we may secure a third location so we can display the parts properly.


The owner’s Dad, Earl Harrington Sr. was in the motorcycle business in the early days selling BSA, Triumph, and Norton. When Honda came along, he sold them as well.


Earl senior sold his dealership and moved to Florida in 1971. Earl Jr. was working in a Honda shop, so in 1978 they decided to start Earl’s Cycles in Ocala.

Earl Jr. always loved and appreciated the motorcycles, but Dad was there to tell him “that you can’t keep them all”. After he passed away in 1998 Earl Jr. started to take his motorcycles that he took in trade home with him. Earl also attended many auctions including ours and bought all he could afford.


As far as I know, this is the largest collection ever to be offered at auction by one man and they are all selling without reserve. Earl and his lovely wife, Debbie have decided to leave the city and move to rural Georgia for a more relaxed life. J. Wood and Company has been contracted by Earl and Debbie to sell the bikes and parts at auction to the highest bidder. The auction will be on March 13, 14 and 15 at both locations during Daytona bike week and we may get a third location to display this amazing collection. We will have two inspection days, March 11 and 12 at the shop location at 2420 N. Pine Ave (Rt441) in Ocala just North of the city. During that inspection, we will have registration and a catalog that will reveal the other locations.


What is there? The mainstay of the collection is British and Japanese, but there are many other brands from other countries. The conditions are from very good (we have a Triumph Hurricane with 510 miles on it like new), bikes that need service, bikes that are fairly easy projects. bikes that will be more difficult projects and parts bikes. We will also have NOS parts inventories and literally tons and tons of used parts. Many of the bikes are jammed into buildings, shed, trailers, storage containers, and a bunch got put outside.


Now I have seen many very collectible early Japanese bikes and parts including those sought after Superbikes. Folks can visit our website www.jwoodandcompany.com where we will have many photographs and lists as well as auction information up very soon.

We want to thank all of our  customers who came to the Earl’s Cycle auction.

The auction was a great success for our sellers and buyers alike. We had many people give us positive comments and that they had a great time.

British bikes and parts stayed strong, so the older folks who rode those bikes in the day are still enjoying the sport. The new growth seems to be with the early Japanese superbikes like the Honda CB750’s and the Kawasaki Z1’s.

The collection was the largest that any of us know about from one man. Many of the machines were nice and many suffered in the Florida weather, but almost all of them found a new home.
Thanks again.


We are posting the results for the tent bikes as they were in most cases, complete bikes.
