I agree, nice to have good buddies that are into the same stuff as you that can share in the fun!Great score! Everyone needs a buddy like Eric.
There's most definitely a market for them. Lots of guys out there skinnying up their swingarm bikes. I agree, that jig is the coolest part in my opinion!Wow at the score. Very cool that you got the jig too. If there was a market, you could make them...or at least sell them as customs from the original stock.
Not sure, but it'd be cool if they are, I've got a box of NOS SB&F spring struts now!So, I guess the SB&F is worth some money? I have a set of SB&F sprung struts
Thanks man!WOW!What a sweet catch! nice job
Well, truth be told, I lied, we didn't get 7 frames......we got 7 3/4 frames. Here's one for the economically minded bike builder. May need a little TLC, but it's got perfect castings !They look expensive......
Yeah man, my pleasure!Nice score. Thanks for sharing
Yep, like I mentioned above, there's definitely a market for them. Was very cool to see a lot of the SB&F stuff sitting back there that hadn't seen the light of day since the 80's! No hardheads, a few hard tail sections though!Nice score! There's a good market for those struts. The jig makes it priceless. SB&F cranked out quality parts and pretty innovative bikes in their day. Did you find any of their hardheads or girders?
Wish I could be of more help with regard to this. I was just introduced to Moon's wife through a friend of a friend. I've searched on line several times to find info, but the fact of the matter is that they didn't really ever advertise on line and there's very little info. I'm hoping that Tim (DarkGoat), TEACH, or one of the other guys that may have a better idea of the history of Moon Machine could fill us in. I can say this, the time, sweat, and money that they dedicated to starting and running that business is REALLY impressive! The quality of the castings, the frames, the fixtures and their manufacturing processes is incredible. As far as I know they were the only American made replica castings and frames when they were up and running and the quality really shows. Super cool to find something like that in my own back yard!Hell of a score! Could some one post a little history on Moon, for those of us who are interested. I tried google and found a shop selling MoonEyes stuff, but no bio etc. Again, very cool find!
