I live in San Diego and I went. Unbelievable amount of stuff. There were about 30 people waiting before it started and when they opened the gate it was a bum rush. Most of the fiberglass stuff went fast. I did get a CB750 racing seat. Bob had most everything in a proper place and labeled. I also got a box with racing tachs, a really cool wheel truing stand and a bunch oh misc bits. No BS stuff but I did get some stuff for my race bike (spare Tommeselli copy levers just like I use) and sold a fair portion of stuff to hopefully get something else I can use.

p.s. funny a lot of people were cafe racer types and didn't know exactly what some things were. I got a twin pull brake lever setup for TD or early TZ and no body knew what it was for.

I am soooooo jealous Paul, I really wish I lived closer to some of the stuff I find scouring the net.

Doesn't seem like any of the good stuff ever filtered down to S. Texas!  >:(

Here's a lil' stone @ an estate sale near Birmingham, Al.  Sale starts tomorrow but there's a phone number you can call and maybe you could work out a deal beforehand. They said it's "around" $400/no title/doesn't currently run.....

This looks to be a sweet BS 60 at this estate sale near Austin, TX that starts this thursday. Spoke with them and they say it turns over but doesn't currently run. They would like $300.

Here's a doozy of an estate auction that's chuck full of neat bikes & parts and includes a 350 GTR.

It looks like the auction isn't until March 8th. 2016, so you'll have plenty of time to get your ducks in a row.  ;D

Scroll down till you see "Terms of Sale:" and just above that, click the yellow "Motorcycles" or "Parts & Engines" to view the pictures. 

Wish I lived a lot closer to this one!

Thanks for posting this. I think Mr.Barkers Bridgestone rotary valve experience helped lead him to Can Am.

Wow, I wonder if the GTR in the auction is the same bike? Wish there was a better picture of it than the partial glimpse that was posted. I guess someone could contact them and try to get more info on it.

Thanks for doing the research and posting that Paul.... very interesting.  8)

Looks like a good classic Honda lawn tractor . I don't think Honda offers those anymore? Bridgestone looks complete.
