DMV-Done. Eye Candy – Mark’s Bikes

2011 March 30

I pushed the BMW to the DMV. They inspected it. Took my money. Put the bike into the ‘system’ and told me that i had to take it to the California Highway Patrol for a VIN inspection to verify it wasn’t stolen.
Went to the Torrance CHP a week later and the Officer was really cool to talk to.  He had some great stories of people sending frames to Japan, a recent inspection he did on a Kawasaki that turned out to be stolen in 1983 and he is trying to find the original owner to return the bike to, etc…
Imagine getting something stolen 25 years ago and then getting it back?Since i have no photos to update the progress on the BMW, i figured i’d showcase some of Mark’s collection that to my knowledge, is still for sale.  Contact me if you are interested in any of the bikes below.

Awesome Jawa. I've been advise to not even try riding it. These things are SUPER dangerous and unintuitive. Apparently you give it gas when you want to brake. it sure looks fun though.

Early 70s (i think) Triumph T100r 500cc bike. Not sure what the deal is with that peanut tank.

I think this is a 73 Bultaco. Maybe 78. Another bike i'd LOVE to ride.

Yamaha RD400. I want somebody i know to buy this and fix it up so i can ride it. Please?

Yamaha SR 500 - This would be a great cafe project...or something to trick out.

10 speed Kawasaki Trail Boss. I have my eyes on this guy.... looks simple, complete and FUN.

One of the many Yamaha dirt bikes up on the rack.
