Yep. Used to be one of the better places on the East Coast to get a decent deal on a Vintage bike. Now days Ebay sellers have turned a good deal into an expensive one. Last I heard of him was in the early 90's.

I remember when a Dealer had the New Honda Bike from the West Coast
& made a bet with Sal against his New Yamaha it was for Pink Slips and Cash Sal Won
they sent the Driver & Bike to NY just to Race against a New Yamaha & we Broke it in by Driving it as Fast as Possible
it was in the 50's

Hey Dom, I recently purchased a Benelli motorcycle, still has the Ghost Motorcycles sales sticker on it. Never visited the shop as I have severe allergies related to life in and around the big city.

Hey Guys, I used to work for Sal when sonny started riding valmobiles. My brother raced for him and later, so did I. Aage (my brother) rode Ducati and I was CZ. I talked to Sal earlier today, he is in to trucking motorcycles now and selling occasionally. I passed the old Ghost shop a few Months ago and it looked all locked up. I used to live right down the street for most of my young life and knew/know Sal well. He helped my brother and I and always treated us very well. Now a days, hes 80 and well and happy.... Cheers, Rick

Bought two motorcycles from Sal at Ghost. 1970 Triumph TR 6 Trophy and then a 1977 Triumph Bonneville Silver Jubilee. Sal was such a funny guy. And Griffin, the sales guy, always trying to do a deal. I miss those days, driving over to Ghost to see the bikes they had lined up outside. Old Nortons, Triumphs, BMW's.

Ghost is still around. I'm keeping a few bikes of mine in a warehouse in Glen Cove where he's got a couple dozen bikes and a TON of parts just rotting. He's mostly selling newer used bikes out of Augie's Competition Glass, as far as I've seen. He's still got a bunch of bikes in the old shop on Main St and every once in a while I'll see somebody in there.

SAL IS A GREAT GUY AS IS SONNY, BOBBIE AND AUGIE. I BOUGHT A 1977 HARLEY DAVIDSON CAFE RACER FROM HIM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WINTER AND GOT A GREAT DEAL. SAL ALWAYS HAD THE COOLEST BIKES LIKE THE DUCATI DESMOS AND NCR'S!! HE ALSO HAD A REALLY NICE XR 750 THAT THIS BALD GUY KEPT THERE. THE BALD GUY COULD HOLD HIS BODY PARALLEL TO THE GROUND BY HOLDING ONTO A PHONE POLE!!! THAT XR 750 WAS ONE OF THE NICEST SOUNDING BIKES I EVER HEARD. SAL ALSO HAD REALLY NICE ROCKET 3'S BAC IN THE DAY!!!!

I'm a little fuzzy on names. Was Auggie the sales guy with the van dyke beard or was that Griffin? I don't know why I have the name Griffin in my head. Sonny was Sal's son, used to race bikes I remember. Or was Auggie Sal's brother? I remember the name Auggie but can't place the face.

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.
