    It was actually that sharp angle that made me think Scirocco (see pic below of 1974 Scirocco).

    I like 11B's idea of the VIN grokker when you really want to know something specific.

    Here's a pic of a 1975. It has the same side marker light as the non-extant example in the photos from the woods.

    i love that the old motorcycle is in an upright position.

    licious, old things like bridge foundations remind me how much the countryside has changed. there used to be a bridge there, and there used to be a road that led to it, and there used to be people who went across that bridge. all of those people's grandchildren now live in the city and have no idea how to grow their own food. now we drive a farther distance, at a much higher speed, to a much bigger bridge, and we never wonder if the big rain last night means that the bridge will be flooded this morning.

    I'm pretty sure that the old motorcycle is a yamaha judging by the indentation on the gas tank. Not sure which model though, I'm sure a guy who knows old yamahoppers could id it from the twin cyl engine
    All vintage all the time. Nothing like a nice chromo frame with some properly adjusted cantilevers.

    Here are two I found while biking in the Land Locked Forest in MA last summer. There were quite a few others but I'm unable to upload the photos.

    Came across this a while ago. Seems abandoned vehicles are a bit rare in Southern California. This one is in a creek bed off of some new trails in the Thousand Oaks area. I think it might be an early '60's Mercury Comet.

    Judging by all the holes, maybe it's Swiss?

    Both in Fair Hill, Maryland, in the South Park trail. The first one is a little ways off the trail and might only be visible in the cold seasons.

    So, I'm riding at Blue Mountain in NY and well off the trail I see this bike sitting by itself. I wonder "Is there a rider? Is someone hurt?" As I go to check it out I see nobody, so I think "Did I just score a bike? How will I carry this bad-boy?" And then I get close...

    Well, at least I can contribute another abandoned vehicle to this thread.

    Rode some remote stuff near Foresthill, CA today... noticed this old dirt bike about 50 yards below the trail. Makes me wonder again, what happened?

    The "Free Tibet" truck is at the beginning of the truck trail where we ride in CT
    The Abandoned Vehicle Thread-free_tibet.jpg

    unfortunately, someone started to dismantle it last year. they've been doing some logging in the area this winter, so I fear the whole thing may be gone now
    The Abandoned Vehicle Thread-free_tibet-1.jpg

    This is a repurposed bug that was left to die in another CT area. I haven't been there in a few years, but the last time the woodwork was getting a little rotted. It sure was fun to ride before that though!

    Instead of abandoned vehicles in a bike thread, how about abandoned bikes in a vehicle thread? Saw this bike on Saturday and it was still there on Sunday.

    ^ where? I'd strip that and turn it into a full rigid single-speed. I kind of like the GF frame and its in my size too. A PM would be just fine in case it is in my neck of the woods.

    You just GOTTA believe that every abandoned car has a story to go with it . . . I'd love to hear them.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    I came across a couple of wrecked Citroen 2CV on a trail close to my former house and I have a scar on my leg as a reminder of my curiosity. Dunno if they are still there.

    I don't get it either. The amount of rocks has steadily grown over the years. Lots of kids in the area, with the trails surrounded by neighborhoods and three schools. Thankfully, there is plenty of rocks to go around.

    Passed by this on a recent 'out of town' ride at Patapsco State Park in Elkridge, MD. Seems to be an old golf cart:
