I used to go there to sit on KLRs and NX650's if I was in Manhattan. They always had a Bimota in stock which was rare.
Don't know why I just thought of that- my brain is frozen.
When I bought my first bike there in '65 (Honda 305 Superhawk) they were on 54St just off the West Side Hwy.

Could have been worse, piece could have been stuck in the lock.

Thanks Mate! Will begin the search with your contact tomorrow morning.

I tried calling the nuthouse, but they didn't have either of the 2 blanks in stock that would work. ILCO Y61 and SR61N

Why won't someone with a key machine make it work? As long as you can get the pieces together, even temporarily with crazy glue or JB weld or something, all that is really needed is the side with the ridges. As long as the scribe can pass over them without the key moving, it can make a copy easy.

Easy as can be to cut it, they use a punch as there are only four depths that all keys have. The problem is the blank. Once he finds it any locksmith can cut it. Good luck

What blank do you need? I work at an old hardware store with lots of weird blanks. If you give me the number, I'll check to see what's in there.

Took the dog out for his usual mile walk today, temp was -8 deg. Sunny, but a little brisk as they say.

We didn't get much snow in SW CT, 3-4" maybe, and powdery, very easy to snow blow. Should be good riding with knobbies. Did the city get the 8-12" as forecast?

My brother bought a bike from them in the late 70's when they were on 57th Street just east of the west side highway - I think Infiniti is there now.

Their last location was 46th and 11th. They are still on google streetview.

They had a pretty decent service and parts department and plenty of accessories/clothing.

There is a car dealer there now.

Not sure how your quest for a blank is going but I know two shops in Queens who carry a lot of bike keys. Neither are easy to get to though.
ABC Lock and Key Company
2905 Francis Lewis Blvd, Flushing, NY 11358
(718) 352-9503 (good prices and a few blocks from JD's)




Abby Safe and Locksmith Company


21829 Jamaica Ave, Queens Village, NY 11428
(718) 479-3810 (he will have the blank and can do it, but he will overcharge you dearly)

Ebay guy

here's the link for ebay. Again dont know how legit this is. If you look at this listings it says he cuts keys via code. I have no affiliation to this ebay user. Good luck

Forget the hysterical "news" source which translates a minor scuffle into "beating the crap out of" - it's never a good idea to resist cops. It doesn't matter what your issue is or what or who you are. The uniform and badge says all anyone from any country ever needs to know. I could also go on about people who have been here for years and not learned a word of English but it doesn't belong here, but really, how fuckin' hard would it have been to learn "I no Engrish prease get transrator?"

And I find it interesting that so many people think jaywalking is no big deal. In some other big cities it'll get you not just ticketed but arrested. Maybe some of you boneheads just aren't thinking it out so let me clarify...

There are people right here in this forum who have injured themselves and damaged their bikes in falls caused by avoiding jaywalkers. And just a few months ago, a motorcyclist was KILLED in a collision with a jaywalker in Queens. That translates to jaywalkers constituting a DIRECT AND DEADLY THREAT to motorcycle riders.

Plus, every iota of attention paid by a motorcycle rider to avoiding pedestrians in the street illegally is attention not being paid to avoiding getting maimed or killed by other motorists, not being paid to road hazards, etc. That is the indirect threat that jaywalkers impose on motorcyclists.

Jaywalkers here have become a menace and it's more than just ignorance in the fog of iPhones and iPods. Their growing belligerence (especially among the hipsters and youth in general) needs to be stopped Right Now.

I've had several occasions where folks have deliberately stepped out in front of me against the light and then yelled at me for not screeching to a halt. In one case I got yelled at even when I did screech to a halt. Our new mayor is correct - this crap just has to be stopped before it gets any more out of control.
