are you shitting me? That oughta be a fucking crime.
better not give me the uncle's address or there WILL be a crime committed.
the sickness runs in the family, my uncles barn
It blows me away looking at the 850 rotting away! I understand we all let life get in the way of fun but letting old iron rot stumps the mind! The 850 looks pretty complete why not bring it back to life where it belongs. The rotting CBX kills me as it was always my dream bike so smooth and what a sound!!!
Ah, the venerable 125 cc 1967 Monkey Wards Riverside is in the front - my first bike, back in 1969.
Let's face it - people who let fine machines rot away are sick.
lol, the 850 runs. right after the picture, I put in a battery and it started second kick. it looks worse than it really is.
face it, people that let fine machines sit and rot, make it easier for us poor folks to buy them. without the sickness , no "barn finds"
You are killing mei I'll beleive it when you post pictures of it running!! How's the CBX run? It just ters me up seeing all these grand machines turning to rust and BWS nests.
It reminds me of a fine bottle of Dom (champagne) that an old girlfriend's father let us uncork, it was dead but you could still tell how good it was before it turned. He had cases of the stuff all of which had turned because it wasn't consumed a f'n waste!!
Te CBX ran when it was "put up" I'm sure that no fuel stablizer was used though. The Norton does run.
You are killing me!!!
I'm sure he just lets the Maserati sit around too, eh?
cbx my ass, look at the two in front of it with the tractor seats.
All at Sharps on the East side of Plattsmouth NE. There's more than what I've posted too.
I had one of those in the late 80's. What a great looking, fun to drive little car! I took out the cranky Abarth engine (the head had been milled down to nothing, and I didn't want to put miles on it), and replaced it with a 903 I rebuilt. I took it racing a few times and had a blast passing the big dogs in the twisties, and watching them blow my doors off on the straights.
God, what a fun little car. Wish I'd never let it go.
Never seen one before now! Cool!
Understatement of 2009 award to JVB!!!!!
Beautiful car, even in that hideous blue.
I love Zagato door handles...
Two or three years ago I went to a place on the other side of Oklahoma (All I remember is we went through Tulsa to get there) once with a buddy looking for parts for his 59 Fleetside. We had no idea what we were about to see. This guy's personal parts stash consisted of literally hundreds of American cars from the 40-70s, mostly 50s. He let us just walk around and check it all out on our own. It was pretty neat but sad at the same time, lots of piles of rust that used to be some really cool cars.
Why did your Uncle collect all the bikes and just let them sit? I assume he used to ride, what happened?
