One of few 'REAL' motorcycle shops left

Postby tom84std » Mon Sep 03, 2012 12:34 pm



Being a lover of the British bike, I have to find parts wherever I can these days. There's a place in Dallas I go, the only place local to me having British parts and people who know them. Their parts are mostly Triumph stuff, I tend to concentrate on BSA but most of the bikes I build are half Triumph anyway. Visiting this place is akin to visiting a motorcycle museum. There are so many antique, old, rare bikes on display I stop by the place sometimes just to look. They've had this one little example on display there for several years. Factory PERFECT. 270 miles on the clock. Looks to be about a week old. I've never even asked the price.

I had a friend name Bob Jones, he was a XS-11 [yamaha ] Nut case, ex- Racer and was on the cover of Cycle magazine, anyway he had a vintage shop in KC and he had $10k on one of his Yamaha's because he built it.. :shock: :shock: Whata nut...good guy but a total nut for XS-1100's he died, poor guy, but there are all kinds of stories and write ups on him, I bought a book of his and he signed it for me and all while he was still alive and well.. So $10K is my bet...
