    Default The market for Harley parts might be down a tad

    Went to Capital Scrap for our usual Friday rumage. Found a few harley parts.

    We rummaged around for about an hour lots of stuff, a stack of twinkie case halves with spun cam bearings half a dozen heads and cylinders all too new for me.

    I finally found $1.20 worth of exhaust clamps some bars to cut pieces off of and some oil pump stuff.

    All the exhaust pipes don't surprise me. When I worked at a dealership we had a big scrap metal dumpster behind the building and we were pulling brand new pipes off of bikes right off the show room floor and throwing them away to install after exhaust on bikes people had just bought.

    Old cases that are scrap make good art projects,,, Some guys build mailboxs out of them, or yard art for the homestead. Or cobble one together for a mock up motor. (I dont like twinkies but could be useful to someone) Old pipes are good donors for custom pipe builds with certain bends and radiuses.
    Can always make a beer dispenser out of them.

    I like the beer dispenser idea.
    I save my old Harley (junk) pieces for wall art throughout the cabin here.
    I have an '02 TC engine on the wall, had a '73 Shovel engine on the bar-top, until I needed it for a bobber project!

    I was scraping one time, and came across a true ton of military surplus rifle parts.Even had some M1 carbine receiver castings about 80% I shit my pants, spent a $500 that day(buying it from the yard)and two hours picking up the pieces.I traded resold those parts for 10 years and gave people a good deal. I love a good junk find!
