He called and said he and his girlfreind had more parts. I got a few more misc pieces for the bike from him, it turned out the bike is a BSA but his girfreind gave me all of the pieces from her house and there are two more bikes there in pieces both triples. One BSA and one Triumph. So something good came to me because of the storm. So many were so unlucky in this area.

WOW! Nice one. A bit premature, perhaps, to call this a blessing- let's wait to see how much $$$ this costs you! laugh DO get back to us on it, eh?

In all seriousness tho, at the very least, you could part out some of the bits to finance the building of one of the bikes. Again- best of luck to you on it.


The most expenisive bike you will ever own is the one you got for free - right. I am rebuilding another bike a 65 T-100 that was given to me and I am really getting a sense of how much money goes into these things. But slow and steady and we'll see what I have when I'm done.
