Wow, that's a big stack of magazines. I thought 5 years of mags was bad, but 25? :willy:
I have Motorcyclist, Cycle World, Cycle (RIP) and Cycle Guide (RIP) from 1978 until 1993 (or until the demise of Cycle and Cycle Guide). Then from 1994-on I have Motorcycle Consumer News (MCN). MCN is easier to store since there is no advertising.
Back when bikes really needed hop-up parts, there were great articles written by very knowledgeable mechanics on how to fix, repair and hop-up almost any bike. I couldn't bear to get rid of them and someday, I will organize them.
There's a guy in Denver, Ian Smith, who sells reprint articles about different bikes. I've seen his reprints at motorcycle shows (and I had most of the originals, except for Rider magazine). He had copyright permission from all the mags except Motorcyclist.
