Cycle salvage yards in So FL ???

Is there a motorcycle salvage yard in South Florida?

I know of two stores but they are closed now.

Moe central than south but try Jack's Rebel Warehouse - Rebel Catalog, Honda Rebel parts and accessories

"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.

Did try them already,,,,,,

I emailed last week. No reply.
I called and left message. No reply.

Found a thread on this forum with bad rep on them.

That is why I posted this.

That was probably the exception as most here have had positive experiences dealing with Jack. Jack may be out of town. Phone calls tend to get better results than emails with Jack.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

That is why I called. Left my phone number twice, once in the beginning and once in the end.

In any case, his shop is far for me to drive up in my old clunker.


I used online search for a yard but this search came up with "already-closed shops".

The bike has a bad cylinder, blowing oil out of exhaust pipe.

I'm contemplating on repairing existing engine or replacing it with used one depending on the cost of each. I know I need to have the engine removed and inspected first to know how much it would cost in parts.

Anyways, there's an engine available on eBay for $500 shipped. I thought if I could find a better price locally for comparable engine, I would go that route regardless of the condition of existing engine, so I can get the bike going again sooner.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I'm new to this bike.

I was looking at it and I realize that there's no support bracket on the cylinder head. So, I'm guessing the bike does not have original engine or at least it was worked on at least once. I'm thinking it is better getting replacement engine anyhow.

I think you're right about a replacement engine. Be sure to do a compression test before buying. Parts bikes with decent engines periodically turn up on craigslist within a few hundred miles of me.
