Anything white, YZ and 1981/1982 will be handsomely rewarded.  ;)  At 10 bucks an item it looks like you'll have enough there to retire Brad  ;D ;D ;D

Cheers

Yeah,i saved 2. Such a shame. Wanted to buy that stuff but he could get like $1100 a bin as scrap. Can't compete with that. Thanks for the heads up.
HOw early ?
Do you mean before i die? Or how far back do the plastics go?

Hmmm . One wonders how he aint heard of Ebay. $10 a bottom end $5 a barrel. $10 a head  start price.  Has got to be worthwhile and better than scrap value.. I hope he  floggs it to someone who will recycle the bits and not melt them .
 Hmm perhaps i can do him a deal with listing them on ebay or a web page? i hate wasting anything.

I still despair at the losses over here in Perth, Warwicks wheels, Cycle salvage, Bike busters, Two wheel wreckers, Traffic motorcycle, Mundaring motorcycles all their stock gone for scrap, carted away and melted into god knows what.
When I arrived in Perth there were more than 10 wreckers and now there are but 4, One for modern dirt bikes, one for big road bikes (mostly), one for a mixed bag (Two wheel wreckers) and one just starting up that specialises in old stuff but has limited stock. Perhaps a little note from various clubs to these places that their members might be willing to buy a LOT more stuff if the wrecker is having a shed clearence sale and could provide an equally lucrative response born of the need to preserve rare or soon-to-be rare parts.

Sorting/ebaying is all too hard for him. Lets face it,there is a shit load of time that has to be sent sorting etc. Spent hours myself just sorting plastics into makes, let alone categorizing

in the mid 80's the wrecker I worked at for a short period had a clean up much the same. Bins and bins and bins full of anything and everything alloy that was made in the 60's and 70's went to a place called Brisbane Lace and Gates to be melted down and the rest went to the dump to be burried!!!! about 20 Dodge ute loads from memory! :o when I think back, I was partially responsible for filling the bins!  as with all great f*ckup's throughout history, it was all done with the best intentions :'(

Brad I be looking for a 77/78 RM80 right cover and a pair for the '78 JR50 if you spot anything with these details scrawled on them  :)
