Triumph Speed Triple - Left Side

Don’t Call It Pink – 2001 Triumph Speed Triple

If you ask Triumph, they’ll say they’ve never released a pink motorcycle before. Here’s Exhibit A in the counter-argument, a Triumph Speed Triple in a rare color that the English firm calls “Nuclear Red”. Doesn’t matter what it’s called, this is definitely pink – and it’s an interesting color choice on what’s become one of the best ‘hooligan bikes’ of all time. Continue reading

BSA Thunderbolt - Right Side

1960 BSA Thunderbolt

The BSA Thunderbolt, despite the aggressive, sporty name, was designed to be a touring bike from the Birmingham Small Arms company. Powered by the traditional 650cc air cooled twin with a single Amal carb, the Thunderbolt had evolved to minimize vibrations found from previous BSA Twins. This allowed for sustained 70 mph travel in comfort for the first time. In road tests, this bike was also able to ‘do the ton’, as the Brits loved to call 100 mph.

This Thunderbolt has just 5,635 miles and has been with the current seller for ‘many years’. He’s had the motor balanced and the carb modified with a stainless sleeve. Find this BSA Thunderbolt for sale in Commerce Township, Michigan with bidding up to $3,350 and the reserve not yet met

Cimatti S50 - Right Side

1967 Cimatti S50

It seems appropriate that a week before Halloween we set a bike all dolled-up in orange and black. I haven’t been able to find much information on this bike, so any secondhand stories would be greatly appreciated. But this little beauty has just 808 miles and has spent the last 15 years as a display bike. The seller has recently fired it up – the bike is claimed to work with only two issues (the high/low headlight switch is broken, and the gas tank should be flushed.

800 Miles – 2004 Aprilia RSV 1000 R

Paul Smart - Front Right

310 Miles – 2006 Ducati Paul Smart

Alright, I know I feature too many of these, but can you really blame me? I’ll be brief this time – here’s an example (VIN: ZDM1WABPX6B001757) with just 310 miles. Usage wise, it’s basically new, but it comes with a Termi Shotgun slipon exhaust and Ducati Performance ECU. It hasn’t been broken in yet, and these bikes are just painfully beautiful.
