You could start your own motorcycle salvage yard.
Or just store them at Tiger's, err... I mean Poboy's.

But I don't see how it could possibly be a bad investment??

I wouldn't even consider buying those. Title issues these days make somebody not even look at stuff like that. And you might make your money back individually selling parts on eBay but I doubt it.

Yes...sorry, Bob..meant to post too...not 100% sure about the tires...but the rims alone are worth way more!
