This is a great article I'll probably return to several times. Good job. I have a goal to collect many many motorcycles. Right now I just have two and I recycle those every year. It may sound strange to everyone else, but the relatively rare Japanese models of the Seventies and Eighties are what interest me the most, such as the Honda CX Turbos, the Suzuki RE-5, things that weren't big sellers when they were released but are "interesting" designs.

The turbo bikes always interested me as well, even though by today's standards most of them really aren't that fast. I know Honda, Kaw, and Yamaha made one, but did Suzuki ever do a turbo?

In New Zealand we have some great automotive collections including this one the Bike Shed Museum at Waitarere where I took a few photos that I have posted on Yahoo at http://au.photos.yahoo.com/bikemerv Go there and select Bike Shed Museum album and then run the slide show through. This place also has the largest motorised bicycle collection I've ever seen.



Cheers

Merv.

Being a MO contributor and occasional tester I find it funny now one ask me about the Petersen Museum Motorcycle gallery

since I designed it and actually built it. One of my favorite peices of art is the board track neon sign I made that hangs in that gallery. I have many stories regarding the names and bikes in the motorcycle

world if anyone is ever interested. Jim Hatch

Great piece!

Guess Burnsie didn't proof read this one though, huh?

He did a comprehensive 6 page 4 color feature in another life about Mr. Parti (pronounced just like Party).

Mike PARTI (not Partee, as in the text) is in North Hollywood and has 40+ American motorcycles (most pre WW1) in his private collection, less then 1/4 of them are Harleys, with several on loan for public viewing at the Petersen Museum.

I did alert the MO brass the facts are in need of some help in many areas. Although I suspect the author is not at fault since he did an interview. I believe **** was referring to Mike Egan in Santa Paula. Jim
