Motorcycle Graveyard Pictures
 
I often see pictures of old rusted out cars sitting in fields. I'm interested in seeing your pictures of old abandoned motorcycle relics. Diamonds in the rough, covered in patina, parked and forgotten. Pictures of your junkyard finds.

The show "American Pickers" turned me on to this when they found an old Kawasaki 2-stroke triple a fella had out in a field.

That'd would have been a top trip.

Do you remember if they were for sale?

All you'd need is a shipping container and a fat wallet for customs fees:D
