    Has anyone ever visited a bike salvage yard? I have a couple within a 2 hours ride of where I live and was wondering if they are worth the trouble to make a stop. Not really looking for a part(s), just looking out of curiosity. Never know, may be a bike build laying around somewhere or some interesting spare parts.
    If you have been, how is the pricing?

    It's worth a look see. The one by me actually gets a lot of stuff from the dealership. You know, stock that people have replaced with custom parts. They also carry tires for a good price. A friend of mine just got a pair of saddle bags for a 60' pan that were in pretty good shape. Check it out! Never know what you'll find.

    Haven't been to a MC salvage yard since my dirt bike days. Back then there was one east of OKC that was fantastic. On the dirt I rode many a HondYamaSuzuKawHusqTaco. Crossbreed dirt bikes were the way to go back then.

    It would be cool to stop and check out. I wish I had one close to me to go dig though. You never know what you might come across.
