Like car and truck dismantling, a similar industry deals with scrap and crash-damaged motorcycles, primarily as a source of quite valuable re-usable spare parts. Since it operates on a much smaller scale it is a less differentiated trade practised mainly as a subsidiary activity by motorcycle dealers and repair workshops.
