Picking Classic Motorcycles & Antique Parts in A Basement

I was invited to check out these classic motorcycles and parts in a woman’s basement after her father passed away. She asked me to help identify the machines and parts and to give her an idea of the values.

No, I did not buy anything but I was more than a little tempted on a few of the motorcycles. Nice Harley Cafe Racer XLCR and I loved the pre-war Knucklehead and VL Harleys.
