Recently I have found a guy out in the boonies who is clearing out an old motorcycle salvage yard. The yard closed down sometime in the 1980's.
So most of what's in there is from 1960's till 1980's and japanese make.
I did find a Vespa Ciao there that was mostly complete and ever managed to get the chain unrusted and the back tire moving.
This stuff has been sitting in blackberry bushes for over twenty years mind you,
but there are some really good parts still left.
Al lot of the bikes have had the engines taken off and stored in the barn on the property.
as well as the seats and the carbs.
I didn't see the seats myself, but my friend said they were pretty messed up.
I'll check myself when I go back.
There is a pile of treasure there that I can't fully take advantage of.
I've put out a few lines to a few people about maybe taking advantage of this place.
I know this site is mostly for mopeds but I also know that a lot of you have other bikes that aren't mopeds that you are working on too.
So I'm trying to get a list together for the next time I go out there to see what all is available and if it would be worth the money and time to be a proxy, and buy stuff for people who live to far away to go there themselves.
so send me your dream list of parts and the bikes you want and the prices you want to pay and please send pics so I;ll know what I looking at when I get there.
If all goes well and the weather holds I plan on going there sometime next week.
maybe the weekend.
I hope this works
It would make a nice X-mas present to a lot of riders out there.
oh yeah, and let me know if you are looking for frames.
there were a ton of frames in good condition too.
