    Spotted this sitting at the end of a dead end road in an industrial area next to the freeway earlier this week. Yes neither one is that desirable (for me anyway), but WTF is going on here? who does this?
    Someone said they were probably stolen, but you can see that the vette was covered up at one time.
    I was thinking that maybe it belongs to someone at the business, but that business has a big yard behind and alongside it, and the bike and vette are on the street portion

    The better has some kind of frame issue. Plus, it’s being used as remote storage.

    The bike, meh. See crap like that all over the place here.

    Via Gearth. I used to drive by this yard frequently going to my favorite MX track- Eddieville- in Goldendale WA. Treasures just rotting away.

    Where is this one? It looks like a great resource for air cooled parts.
