Remember the old days

There is no where in the world iconic as Elizabeth St in Melbourne, it has a solid strip of motorcycle shops selling all brands and real estate prices are outrageous, but back in 70’s both sides of this street were loaded with shops until the 80’s when what you see here disappeared and Japanese dept store Diamaroo bulldozed the whole block and what you see disappeared. What people never realized is the room above the Camera Supply shop was chock full of collectable Brit bike spares, and Yamaha City was the last place I saw 8 Vincents and 6 BSA Goldstars for sale all under $1600!
