When we first rolled up, we saw this great Panhead ready for pick-up. I don't know the story or owner, but it looks like a stocker gem that someone has and will be taking very good care of.
Following the seat-pan discovery, we asked Nick if he had any t-bars and he takes us through some of the elaborate aisle and shelve-corridors, and as we're entering a blind alley with parts on the floor and all kinds coolness coming off the walls, he points straight at where they are stacked. The point is, what might seem incoherent to the mere mortal, is an intricate system of organization which you either have to be autistic or the owner of the place to understand. This is the t-bar + a-lot-of-other-stuff section:
We ended up spending 2 days at Nick's, rather than the couple of hours we had planned, so there are more stories to tell - about the museum, the 2-storey bike-barn, the school bus and chicken coop warehouse and of course our very generous and hospitable co-host Billy - the Prince of the XR. For now, here's the rest of the pics from the ground floor in the main building - they are a bit shaken, but so was I.
We salute Nick's Custom Cycles for keeping up the pace for 46 years, and still going strong. If only Motorious could evolve like that, and become a place of stories, parts, bikes and myth. There's another US-trip story here.
