Larry Klein passed away on March 9, 2015 at the age of 71.  Larry enjoyed a lifelong passion for motorcycles (particularly of the Italian variety), literature (of every variety), and civil rights advocacy.  He was widely respected as a Moto Guzzi expert, sharing his encyclopedic knowledge openly with all who cared to listen (and even those who didn't). In 1972, Larry opened GT Motors in Lansing, Michigan, with Michael Gorman and Arlen Thrasher.  In 1977, Michael and Arlen left the business, leaving Larry to run GT Motors as a solo venture, providing motorcycle repair and parts service.  In recent years, Larry shifted his focus from motorcycle repair to motorcycle literature, and became widely known at meets around the country.  He collaborated with several celebrated authors to publish new titles, and continued to provide customers, new and old, with his wealth of motorcycle and literary knowledge.


This auction is intended to distribute Larry's vast collection of bikes, motorcycle parts, books, and more! There are certain to be many wonderful finds in this collection
