Public Auction of the Late John Parham’s Barn Finds

Oct 09, 2017 View Comments by

ANAMOSA, IA – The lot list for the Parham Barn’s Auction posted online recently. The family of John Parham, founder of J&P Cycles, will 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.

 “This is shaping up to be an amazing sale with very rare items,” said Bill Melvin, owner of Liquid Asset Partners. “John was well know as the ‘smartest collector’ of motorcycle memorabilia in the USA, and his barn finds show the depth and value he always found in his picking.”

 The live auction will take place on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 in Anamosa, Iowa. The lot list is currently online at Proxibid.com.

 Liquid Asset Partners will be welcoming other consignments of quality motorcycles, cars, or memorabilia. Please call 616-719-5917 for consignment information.

 

Online bidding will be available through www.proxibid.com.
