I'm afraid the location of Idaho will have to remain a secret.

I'm just showing the link below as one example from a major eBay British parts seller who is located in Lewiston, Idaho. I wonder if the stuff in the auction is his or his source. If it's a surprise to him, first, that would be a surprise to me, second, he will be on this, as they say, "like a duck on a june bug."

The bikes are in all conditions from good complete machines that just need a good cleaning to rolling basket cases.

What constitutes a "rolling basket case", I have a mental image of a plastic laundry basket on castors full of bike bits

1959 Rocket Gold Flash - blinged and tarted up  would have seizure if taken to  Tesco

What a find. It would take 1/2 a lifetime to sort through that lot. Shows their still out there.
Ray & Gina would have to know about it. I have bought off them, always a good deal..
I just got another set of those MC pistons.
Bill, the wife recons I'm a rolling basket case.

Take a look at this photo of one of the A65s. Note chicken atop adjacent bike.

Better not let my '51 see that. She'll get homesick. She spent 15 years in a chook shed before I got her.

Wow, that lot will take some shifting. Not sure the tyres will be any use, I thought the rubber went hard after 6 years?
