Racer Kyriacos "Charlie" Mavros, age 52, died Thursday, March 29th in a motorhome crash at about 8:00 p.m. on I-95 in South Carolina. He was on his way to an AHRMA race at Carolina Motorsports Park (CMP) when his motorhome veered off the highway and into the surrounding forest, then caught on fire.His girlfriend, Sylvia Yamileth Valladares, age 41, was pulled from the wreckage by a motorist and is being treated in the burn unit of a hospital in Augusta, Georgia.
Mavros was a successful businessman who owned car lots, car washes, and other companies, and was part owner of the Sin City nightclub in New York.
Mavros was an avid road racer competing with multiple organizations and had an extensive motorcycle collection.
He is survived by a son, Andrew, and three daughters, Stephanie, Stacey, and Christina Mavros.
More so than his hobbies and businesses, he was a father to three children. Sounds like this guy made his own way in the world. Sure, he probably pissed a few folks off on the way, but who successful hasn't? Is it personal between you and him? Did he back over your rose bushes and feed your dog PB with laxative in it? Or are you just jealous of what he had and what he did in his life, in comparison to yours? Do tell!You can’t tell us why he is a POS? Are we supposed to come to that conclusion by what is in that article? Do tell. He was racer, enthusiast, and he worked. What are we missing?
Yup- we New Yorkers are all the same in that regard...Typical New Yorker, stole and fucked people to get ahead in life .... got what he deserved!
You can only get away with that type of behavior for so long until your ticket gets punched.
You can't fuck people over all day if you don't start in the morning.Yup- we New Yorkers are all the same in that regard...
I'll be back later- I gotta go steal some shit and fuck a few people over- it's 6:40am here, and if I don't get an early start, I'll miss my daily quota.
The only New Yorkers that are "cool" are the dead ones!New Yorkers in general are pretty cool especially the ones that migrate to new paths and ventures in life. Its the vacationers and life long home state new Yorkers that are the epitome of douchebaggery. Just my opinion.

That's a bit harsh me thinks.The only New Yorkers that are "cool" are the dead ones!
Wow, quite a collection there. He had good taste
of course but I was reading an owner experience of the Desmo. Im guessing Ducati thought nobody was going to want to ride such an expensive bike. And I got to experience riding with 1 at Laguna for a couple laps before he was meatballed...lol. Knowing nothing about them.They're not heaps...but they did sell 1500 of them. Hell, some guys used them for track day bikes.
A factory GP bike is a LOT harder to come by.
Remember? My buddy still has two of them. Trick bikes. Closest thing to a Superbike I ever rode. Ah, fun times...Couple of interesting possibilities. I wish I was closer.
Anyone remember Muzzy Raptor?
2000 Kawasaki ZX7 Muzzy Raptor (840?) | Vehicles, Marine & Aviation Motorcycles | Auctions Online | Proxibid
Charlies bikes are going up for auction.
Anyone want to guess on cumulative value?? 2,3,5 million??
Think the MotoCorse built Pierobon was north of $100k to build with what he already had.
Supposed to be some connex boxes full of project bikes
I was curious about the "fees", especially for out of state purchases. Here is the reply I got for an example of a $5000 bid win. I was surprised that they charge FL sales and county taxes on vehicles as I would also have to pay it in IL. Bullshit.
Purchase price $5,000
10% Buter’s premium $539
Proxibid 3% $150
Fl sales tax 6% $300
County tax on first $5k 2 1/2 $125
Credit card @ 3% $184
Grand total $6,298
We have to be out of this building by noon of November 14, We would have your bike shipped to Crystal River and stored for pickup there
Yeah, it's all bullshit now.OK, I hope that's how it works, but over time I bought at least dozen bikes out of sate and have never paid any sales tax on the spot before.
