Ted's Newburgh NY - TOO MUCH!!!

It was a beautiful day yesterday. I met George up at the Delaware Water Gap and rode to Newburgh NY to see friends at the Hudson Valley Chapter meeting. The meetings are held at Ted's (of V-Twin fame). Now whether or not you like his repro parts is inconsequential to this story. Ted and his dad have been collecting bikes for years. They are both extremely nice guys and gracious hosts. They have an unbelievable collection of bikes of every kind and year. Ted has an obvious "jones" for 60's and 70's chopper stuff which I will post later.
As I was looking around upstairs in the main room, Dan said "Oh there's more in the basement", well that was an understatement!!! The pics above are from the basement.
Ted has purchased this building and is developing it into a museum. We talked about how he will be involved in getting younger people into the old bike scene. There is a lot of educational "stuff " involved in opening a museum and getting it approved in NY state from what he tells me.
Enjoy the pictures. I will post more later.
It is just too much...
