My Current and Past Motorcycles

2011 Victory Cross Roads

This motorcycle was purchased at Wild Horse Powersports in Malta, New York in October of 2016. The bike cost $8000 and was used.  This Victory is smooth and comfortable but does not have the power of the Stratoliner. I bought this after the Stratoliner was totalled. I rarely buy used bikes but this one was beautiful on the showroom floor

1990 Yamaha Radian YX600

This motorcycle was purchased in May of 1990 at Spring City Cycle in Saratoga Springs, New York  I have put on about 11k miles on it and it still is a great little bike.  It is cramped for a taller rider but is a perfect learning bike.  Can you believe that Cycle Magazine had this clocked in the quarter mile at 12.10 seconds?  This bike was purchase brand new for $3600 and it is still worth it to me.

1966 Suzuki X6 Hustler

This bike was purchased from Kelly Carte in Queensbury , New York for $225 during the summer of 2002.  It needs a lot of work but will be the envy of everyone when it is finished. I eventually sold it because the work needed was too much. I think I will buy one that runs before I restore it.

1976 Honda CB500T

   

This bike was purchased from Steve Rossley in Wilton, New York for $400 in 1985. This was my official first road bike.It had awesome torque for a little bike and was a blast. Unfortunately due to my lack of knowledge of engines, I abused this little machine. Also it did not have a good history for reliability. I gave it to my uncle to work on but he did not think it was worth his time. These pictures are of other CB500T's, not the one I owned.

This dirtbike was purchased in 1980 from Spring City Cycle in Saratoga Springs.  The dirtbike was brand new and cost us $650.  My brother and his sons used to drive it. In 2014, I decided to restore it for my late son Parker. The pictures are before and after the restore.

Yamaha Chappy 50cc

      

    This was given to me by Sue Shephard .  It was soon after the purchase of the Suzuki DS. It was great to have two bikes to ride at the same time

 



Honda Passport 50cc

      

    This is the first motorized bike I ever drove.  I was about 9 years old (1976) and this was a blast.  Unfortunately the kickstart was broken so it had to be bump started.  Even though it was intended for the street, I used it as a field bike.
