Long ago, I went to the "Mecca" of Motorcycle shops with my uncle, who rode (still has it) a Guzzi Eldorado or Ambassador - don't remember which, but it was the first motorcycle I went over 100 mph on, back in '72 or 73, but I degress.

The shop was in Port Washington, Long Island, NY. and was called "Ghost Motorcycles". I figure close to Geeto. Are they still around? I tried searching on the web but didn't come up with anything last time I checked. I remember it was a really cool shop, crammed with old, unusal bikes (remeber this was the early 70's).

I just saw a ducati frame on egay from motorcycle world, which I think was in Port Washington, and wonder if they are the same place, just renamed.

Just curious....

From what I know of them, "Pirates" is the descriptive word that best fits. Not that they weren't lovable pirates at times, nor creative and involved pirates, and certainly interesting pirates with a nice pile o' stash; but in the end a rose by any other name.......


this thread just drips with nostalgia and pirates gold stashed about ...someone needs to light a lantern and go look for the rest of us...we are on our seats REALLY scincerely sounds like a very interesting saga and if some one can find out where to get a tee shirt.....its all very interesting !!!

Im so far behind ,that I think Im in first.
We've all heard about people having guts or balls. But Do you really know
the difference between them? In an effort to keep you informed, the definition
for each is listed below...

GUTS - is arriving home late after a night out with the guys, being met by
your wife with a broom, and having the guts to ask: "Are you still cleaning,
or are you flying somewhere?"

BALLS - is coming home late after a night out with the guys, smelling of
perfume and beer, lipstick on your collar, slapping your wife on the butt and
having the balls to say: "You're next"!!

I hope this clears up any confusion on the definitions. Medically speaking,
there is no difference in the outcome, since both ultimately results in death.
