    JC's upstairs museum is well worth seeing if you are in the state of Washington. It has a nice assortment of well preserved and restored bikes, mostly HD as I recall and it's in a beautiful area. He was the nicest guy to me and I can't say enough good things about him and his bikes.

    NEVER MET JOHN BUT HIS WIDOW BUNNY IS A REALLY COOL LADY. THERE IS A COLLECTION OF ONE OF EVERY YEAR KNUCKLEHEAD IN THAT COLLECTION. JOHN PUT A PRICE ON THAT SET BEFORE HIS DEATH AND SHE WON'T BUDGE. THEY ALL LOOK GREAT BUT I SPENT TWO DAYS LOOKING CLOSELY AT ALL OF THEM AND MOST ARE IN THE WRONG YEAR FRAME. EVERY ONE IS POWDERCOATED LIKE CYLINDERS HEADS ETC AND THEY SHINE LIKE A NEW PENNY. MOST HAVE NEVER BEEN STARTED. ONE HAS ORIGINAL PAINT----THE 40 I THINK. LOTS OF OTHER COOL STUFF AND PARTS THERE ALSO. STEVE IS ONE OF THE NICEST GUYS ON THE PLANET TOO












    I THOUGHT THE THOR WAS ABOUT THE COOLEST BIKE THERE. STORY WAS JOHN BOUGHT IT IN EUROPE AND THE GUY DISASSEMBLED THE ENGINE AND GAS TANK ETC AND PUT THOSE IN SUITCASES AND PUT THE CHASSIS ON THE PLANE AS A BICYCLE BECAUSE A BICYCLE COULD BE CHECKED AS BAGGAGE AND FLEW FREE THEN REASSEMBLED THE BIKE AFTER HE GOT TO THE STATES. IT IS SUPPOSEDLY ORIGINAL PAINT
