Sal just turned 87-

 

He has terrible hearing but he always has his cell phone on...he is still driving a truck and side car regularly-just was the grand marshall in the Port Washington Memorial Day parade...

 

Sincerely,

his granddaughter-Eliesha

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

Spent quite a bit of time their in the 70s, 80s and 90s. Been their when Billy Joel has come by as well as other well known bike people. Even went out riding around PW with shaky Pete the parts guy. Talk about a guy who could ride the balls off. He was a sleeper. Looked like he could bairly walk let alone race, but he could and he know the streets of Port. Lotta of good times shame Ghost is a well ghost now.

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.

 

Best --

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.

I bought 3 or 4 motorcycles from Sal and Sonny - the last one I bought was a used Guzzi which conicidentally is what brings me to this page.  I bought the bike in '94 and never titled it.  I am now going to restore it and cannot locate the old title or the bill of sale.  As I recall, Sonny told me the bike belonged to a friend of his and he was selling it for him.


 


If by chance anyone reading this board owned a '78 Guzzi LeMans that Ghost consigned for you, I would be very grateful if you would contact me about the possibility of getting a duplicate title.  I live in Philadelphia now so dealing with the NY DMV is extremely problematic.


 


Crossing fingers.

Sure do!  Born in 1957, I made many trips there during the summer of 1966(?) when an older brother rebuilt his BSA 441 Shooting Star.  We practically wore a groove between our home in Plainview and their shop!  As a young boy, it was my first glimpse into the world of gear-heads.  Thanks for bringing back some sweet, sweet memories of a very special time...
