    Looks like all of his bikes will be auctioned off in November. They are saying something like 200 bikes.

    Of course I recognize a lot of them, kinda sad to see. Charlie sure was passionate about motorcycles!

    No idea who is handling it or any other details.

    I’ve never been there, but I’ve been told that in addition to what you see here, there’s shipping containers full of “project bikes” too.

    He kept Chris Boy, Dave Weaver, and several others pretty busy, they always had one or 3 of his bikes at their shop.

    If anyone finds out the info on where/when/who for the auction please post it.

    I have seen one or two things that are interesting in the photo collection.

    TIA

    Let's not forget, Charlie with some of his "hoarded" bikes, put riders like Danny Eslick and Michal Barnes aboard his bikes at some AHRMA races. I'm not trying to say he was a true philanthropist, but he had his moments. The economic loss from the stuff he always had in the works, at the shops like Full Spectrum and MotoCorse (as Gino mentioned above) is surely felt... big loss all way around. He was an interesting guy to say the least. Miss having him 10 minutes down the road.
