    He obviously doesn't need any money, but he should consider a bike museum, I'd even visit Bethlehem just for that reason.

    I should have kept more of the 15-odd bikes I've had in my life.

    Like these:
    1981 KTM250 GS (actually HATED this bike)
    1982 Honda CR250R (first of the monoshock watercooled Red Rockets, cost me a case of beer and a stator coil)
    Various Yamahas: 1977 AG100, 1981 IT175, 1981 IT465, 1983 IT490, 1984 TT600, 1982 XT550, 1983 TT350
    1980 Suzuki PE250 (ugly HEAVY underpowered pig of a bike)
    1978 Benelli 125 Cross enduro (the only one I've ever seen)
    2012 Jeep Sahara Unlimited 3.6 V6

    He has 2 of these Ducati "Boston Editions"..........they're basically new, couple hundred k's on them.
    Those Ducati's are the Ben Bostrom replica bikes from when he raced in / won the American Superbike Championship.

    Het het geloop as ek reg onthou. Het seker 20 jaar terug laas gestart.

    As hy regtig belangstel en hom so graag wil he kan hy hom maar kom haal, sal nice wees as die ou ding weer n tweede lewe kan kry.

    That sound's like a great collection Petri A friend of mine has a body shop, in his downtime he restores small capacity Yamaha from the 1960's and ' 70s. When restored he places them in a plastic bag so that they are not damaged by our moist air here in Ireland, his collection is around 40 bikes now but just yamaha and to cap it off he couldn't even ride a bike until a couple of years ago. An old guy not too far away from me passed away about 15 years ago and when his family went to demolish some old sheds he had there was a small collection of bikes including some Brough superiors. I believe they all ended up going to auction at Sothebys in London. You can never tell what's lurking in old sheds. There's also a bike dealer not too far away from me in the countryside who sells secondhand bikes and does servicing and repairs, his shed has an upper floor that customers cannot get to but which you can see the edge row of bikes and there are hundreds of very old looking bikes there in all states of repair that are sure to be a future joy to someone. Old XT600 and other enduro bikes that come from ZA to Ireland and UK are sought after as your climate is kind to them. Yamaha produced a limited edition book for dealerships back in 2002 or so written by Marc unau, it really is a great reference for all matters XT. You can get the french language version on amazon but forget about the English version unless you find a rare copy on ebay. I have a copy so feel free to PM me if any questions or if you want a scan of pics of a particular version of tbe XT should you be doing a restoration etc.
