Southeast Bike yards?


Got to keep the loonies on the path...
Just a thought here guys, but in the southeastern US, how many motorcycle salvage/junk yards are still out there that have classics in the tall weeds out back? I used to frequent a huge yard in greer, SC a few years back that had several acres of cb's, cl's rd's, everything under the sun (literally) for the cafe builder. This place had several cb750F bikes leaning against trees that were salvageable, and I even dug through piles of old suzuki 2-strokes to find a gas tank for my brother's 81 cb400F. But at the time I was busy with modern sportbikes so I thought nothing of it. Now that I'm into cafe's, I drive down there and the entire place in gone - as if it were never there! The only other place I know of is in Hickory, NC. So here's my thoughts: The internet is a good resource for parts, but sometimes its nice to have those yards around just to find that one little part that is impossible to get anymore. If we all have favorite local places to go for parts, why not list them here as a directory of sorts for all to enjoy? Ive only got two that I know of in the area so here they are:

Benson's Cycle Salvage
(828) 465-3296
2401 Northwest Blvd, Newton, NC
They have most asian makes in there, some inside, some outside.

Cycles Recycled Motorcycles
(828) 433-1067
4754 Nc-18 S, Morganton, NC 28655
I've heard tales of a HUGE salvage/ warehouse in Valdosta Georgia with loads of vintage Japanese and British bits. i'm going down there to have a look around in the next few weeks.

This place looks pretty badass. I haven't been down there yet though.

If its not bad weather tomorrow I'm gonna try to hit this place up in the morning. I'll let you know how it is.
Just got a phone number for a yard in Cobb Ga. Don't know the name of it but I've got a name and number... 770-369-0342 It says to ask for Yoshi.
If I call and get anymore info on it I'll post it up.
I visted most of these while kicking around the Volunteer state...
