The Clive Wood MBE Collection


London, UK – Bonhams Motorcycles will present over 40 motorcycles from The Clive Wood MBE Collection at the Spring Stafford Sale on 20-21 April. The late Clive Wood, a prominent figure in Teesside industry, began his career at Marske Machine Company as an apprentice fitter-turner. Known for his energetic work and humble client care, he became sales manager at Tees Components, personally investing in both Tees Components and Dormor Machine & Engineering. Clive’s passion for innovation led Tees Components to adapt machinery in the late 1980s, establishing a dedicated tunnel lining production line. This facility crafted cast iron liners for the Channel Tunnel and the Jubilee Line extension.

Committed to philanthropy, Clive founded the East Cleveland Youth Training collective, empowering young people in engineering, and additionally served as county vice president for St John Ambulance, supported local sports, and was awarded an MBE in the 2019 Queen’s birthday honours. Clive’s diverse interests included racehorses, playing trumpet, vintage cars, art, fly fishing, beekeeping, metal detecting, and horticulture. Clive had a strong affinity for British motorcycles, and his impressive collection boasts no less than 20 diverse British motorcycle brands.
