Griffin at Ghost Motorcycle changed my life (for the better) when he sold me a brand spanking new CZ 175 Sport for $495.00 back in April of 1971. It was my very first motorcycle and I loved it. I took it back to college in Boulder, Colorado, where I rode it so much in the mountains that I almost flunked out of college, which caused me to get drafted to go to Vietnam. Griffin, if you are still around, please drop me a line. Jimmy

I'm probably a little younger than you guys, but I bought my first bike from Sal and Sonny in 1990 a Kawasaki ex500. I truly loved that place, my friends and I would ogle all the Ducks and the vintage bikes. I bought my first ducati 900 ss from him as well. Sonny was a great mechanic and could work on anything. Griffin was one of the coolest sales people I ever dealt with. They also had a russian sales guy, but I can't remember his name.
The Russian sales guy's name was Mark but They called him Marco.

I am looking for a dealer that had an ad on Ebay in 2005 selling a Manrhin motorscooter.
The dealer was listed as MOTORCCLEWORLD, PORT WAXHINGTON, NY.
Anyone have info on such a dealer?

Sal and Sonny were icons in the 60's and even later. I spent many nights there-street was packed with bikes in the heydey of british machines. Later on as bikes from Japan became more prominent and started winning races the shop kinda faded away. I spoke with Sal about 5 years ago in the shop, and we talked about mutual friends that raced and were working with me in California. I was glad to see Sal is still strong. God- those were the best days of my life.
Anybody remember Them I bought quite a few Bikes from him
He was a Friend & I even worked for him for a couple of Years.

the rider was George Rocket. He won some major races on that bike including Watkins Glen. The bike was so fast, that someone protested and they pulled the head and measured. Came in at 174cc

My name's Jean.
I remember Ghost I used to go to Ghost Mtorcycles with my husband, for years. Marty had a hot BSA. then he bought himself and me BMWs. Mine was a 250ccc. His was a 500. Ghost had a son, Wolfie, who was quite a good dirt rider. Is Ghost Motorcyles still there? I'm living in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. marty is gone.

rember it well. it had a distinct odor when you entered the building. smelled like rubber , gear oil etc. a row of bikes against each wall and a walkway in the middle that led to the parts dept. the parts guys name i think was bob, he was a crusty old salt with tatoos that had no use for anyone with long hair. a real right winger that hated hippys. he would vocally abuse them and throw them out of the store. there was storage just above the bikes, that was the second floor. it was only about 5 feet above the bikes. low ceilijg. there was another storage area down the celler. which had a outdoor entrance in the front of the building. only place around to buy parts for my 1970 triumph bonneville.

If I'm not mistaken, Steve Schweber - son of Seymore Schweber (Schweber Electronics in Long Island) was an investor
@ Ghost. I knew Steve and Seymore because I worked for Fairchild Semiconductor in Mt. View, CA - they were one our distributors of semiconductors in NY.
I still have a Ghost T shirt if anyone is interested

Sal is still going strong, selling Ghost paraphernalia on Main Street in Port, mostly during the good weather summer days, and there are a few bikes out on the street too and maybe you can get a deal.
