Huge Cache of motorcycles

From the VJMC site in Australia

I think that there is a Bridgestone 100 in there!! :)

This is a link to a DC Classic Cycles HTML page containing text, photos and links that describe how these guys found a warehouse full of old motorbikes.

Good Lord .... a small world. I was in that building around 2002 / 2003. We pulled a few bikes out it at the time. One I missed because we could just not get it off the first floor as it was just toooo damn dangerous, floor boards & joists rotten, was a Triumph 200 Cub with the snow tracks on the rear & skis where the front wheel would have been. This was a kit you could buy back in the late 50's / early 60's.

later  ... ray

Wow!! What a shame to see all those bikes and parts sent to the scrap yard. Im sure there was more than 1 Bridgestone in that building.

The picture of all the bikes in the dumpster made me sad. I am way to sentimental an old dude.

Upon further reflection, since almost everything on a motorcycle is recyclable, at least they didn't end up in a landfill...

I live about an hour and half away on the other side of the border, this place was mythical.  I know there were a lot of guys sneaking in and out selling parts on Ebay.  I also feel sadness when I see history being sent to the scrap ovens.
