Any motorcycle salvage yards or pick a part closeby? - September 29, 2016, 02:01 PM

Recently picked up an old 90's Honda motorcycle. Was wondering if there are any boneyards or pick a part kind of places nearby? Anything close to DMV area, say within 2 hrs drive?

Or if you guys are aware of a website known for good prices and used parts?

Looking forward to any advice and suggestions. Thanks in advance

Subs. I'd be interested to find out if there's anything like this too. I swore there was a huge warehouse in NJ somewhere

Baltimore Cycle Salvage off I think Franklin Rd. Been a while since I have been there, it's hard to find cause it's inside a huge warehouse that is also gated in, with just a small sign on the door way in the back. You could drive around it and never know its there. Huge inventory, and what's crazy he knows where everything is. He has a lot of old hard to find shit too.

There is also A&J cycle salvage outside Philly.

Don't know if the one out in La Plata / Waldorf one is still around, but I wouldn't recommend them at all. To disorganized and lazy staff. Been out that way too many times cause they said they had a part, but never actually check before you get there. Then they catch an attitude with you after driving all the way out there, and even after asking "are you sure you have it this time" prior.

+1 on Baltimore Cycle Salvage. Been there and the guy has tons of stuff. It's in the straight hood, make sure you know where you're going. He doesn't let you walk around though, tell him what you're looking for and he will go get it.

What's that place in SoMD? Right off Rt. 5. Moved a few years back, they're not cheap but they definitely had a variety of parts for sale.

It's a 1992 nighthawk 750 and am looking for a tachometer and some other miscellaneous parts.

Thanks everyone for the input and feedback.
