I searched for Clymer Motors' address in Los Angeles (222 West Pico) to see what had become of it. Like so many interesting old addresses it is now a parking lot (or as we call it here, a carpark).


1954 Norton Dominator 88 cafe - Yamaha wheels, Lyta tank ( project in progress)
1969 Triumph Bonneville
Currently 6 other non-Brit machines.
Past history includes 11 Brit and 13 non-Brit machines.
Some impressive and some just silly.

Thank you friday1 ! That group of material is quite interesting and shows how many scooters were attempted. What a different time it was! I will now be aware of any unusual scooters that cross my sight, having only been aware of Salsbury and Cushman as US products. It would sure be a miracle to find a Crocker somewhere!

That site is great! I got interested in it and kept finding active links to more photos and descriptions. Had no idea the Salsbury was such a popular and plentiful item. Saved it to continue, too much for 1 sitting. Thanks!
