I ended up with 6 bikes & a truck full of HD parts. the only cool keeper was the BSA tho.

he's notional on selling stuff. he needed some $ to buy another bike he found, so he sold me some stuff. other times, Im not able to buy anything.

most of this stuff had been sitting for years, and wasnt worth hauling off. But, you gotta dig, you never know what you will find buried

I can't be certain but the carb on the BSA might be worth your effort, all by itself.

It's a shame that Z1R is just sitting there.

Nice score on the BSA!

Would you pitch your life to Velocity or TLC? I'd much rather watch you dig through trash and ride around the world than some of the others we see on TV.

I'd take that Ford Coupe. Probably just a hunk of rust at this point.

Dave's had a huge pile, but again, most of it was shot from sitting outside. I was one of the first to dig when the estate came up for sale, and some of the buildings were still locked up (the executor cut em open for me)
I spent a day looking thru buildings, vans, buses, fields, and even the house that was farther up the holler. The bikes were covered in snow, so Im sure I missed some stuff, but I got a pretty good load of parts, and the guys there were selling it to me by the pound. I was lovin that

EMPI headlight covers. were popular on v-dubs too. don't know if there were other manufacturers and i don't know if the v-dub covers fit domestic. probably id they are the same diameter. you can still get them new.
