Brown's Cycles on Highway 101 near Paso Robles is a bike shop where they haven't thrown anything away since 1943. You owe it to yourself, to pull off and check it out.

From the front you can see what's going on in the back.

The rear of the shop spews out to this. Graveyard or heaven?

Not for sale apparently. It could be the bike from Little Fauss and Big Halsy.

Some old, some retro and some.....just plastic.

Some lost their heads.

Deep in here is the 69 plate that came from Nicky's 'big Honda before he went overseas'

A rare box.

Don't know what these are, but I bet you could make one out of these three.

It just got parked, and whoever did it, never looked back.

Classics. Framed pictures prove that Brown's was a Yamaha dealership.

Ricky lived nearby. Maybe he ran with the Salinas Rangers.
