I live in florida if that helps, thanks

Lol, you are reaching man, I feel for ya....


It would be alot easier to get your butt out here and buy that Hurricane and ride it back to FL. than it would be to sit in a junk yard and build a bike

your probably right, but I can't afford that hurricane, or the plane ticket to go with it, I can afford to buy a $100 bike though

St Petersburg Motorcycle Salvage Yard

There is one in St.Petersburg, but I can't remember the name. They may be in the Motorcycle Trader. It is off 38thAveN. and 34th St (US19). If you find Lealman Middle School you are about 3 blocks away. Call the dealers in St. Pete, they will know the name.

In Miami

There was a place down there just north of the Golden Glades. You could see them from I-95. They did work on my RD400 and had a lot of rebuilt bikes. I know they were having a going out of business sale a while back. In a warehouse area right next to tri-rail tracks.

any chance you could get the name for me, I'd be very greatful. theres a place here called pompano pats, but all there bikes are trashed and way to expensive, but I may have to deal with it, I'm also going to go to moto-cyco world again.
