A Motorcycle Graveyard in Upstate New York
The motorcycle graveyard from Lockport, New York, is the eerie image of a lost and fascinating dream. Its former owner, Kohl, had a passion for motorcycles, especially Japanese ones. He gathered many over the years and sold the collection in 1997. The new owner planned to develop the place into a productive motorcycle business. But the costs were so high that he couldn’t support it, and the entire collection was left to rust. Local authorities took control of the graveyard and the bikes, without allowing visitors. The first and only pictures of the cemetery appeared in April of 2010 on the internet. Motorcycle lovers worldwide were impressed and overwhelmed at the same time.
