Egli Ducati 900SS

1986 Egli-Ducati 900SS

Ducati Day – 5 of 5. It all concludes with a Ducati engine, this time surrounded by a frame from one of the best names in the business. This bike was originally sold in Switzerland and has only had two owners. The first owner was an Egli employee, and it’s currently registered in Germany. It has a fresh service…and that’s pretty much all the information you’re going to get without contacting the seller directly.

Find this Egli Ducati for sale here at Fuchs Motorrad in Osnabruck, Germany for about $75,000. Note that this bike is also up on Car and Classic for about $60,000.

Ducati Day – 3 and 4 of 5

The Ducati Elite was the Italian firm’s largest-displacement bike when it was introduced – a whopping 204cc when they bored out the popular 175cc engine. The bevel-driven single produced 18 horsepower, but because the bike weighed 230 pounds it could hit nearly 90 miles per hour and return 70 miles per gallon. It had a four-speed transmission and 18 inch wheels front and rear. Here we’ve got two examples of the breed – one in blue and one in red. Choose wisely! Continue reading

Ducati 851 Corsa Racing - Right Side

Ending Soon – 1989 Ducati 851 Corsa Racing

Ducati Day – 1 of 5. Hope you like Ducatis, because today I’m goofing around and just featuring five fantastic ducks. We start with this nifty racer, which was used in the Italian Superbike Championship between ’89 and ’92. It is a true Corsa, and was the first edition available for privateer race teams. It was updated to 888 specs including rare parts like Ohlins suspension, magnesium clutch case, Works carbon tank, and more.

It’s just had a new service and is ready for a new owner.

HD XLCR Custom - Right Side

Hot Rod Feature – 1987 Harley-Davidson XLCR

The XLCR is one of my favorite Harley-Davidson motorcycles, if only for the sharp departure it took from the company’s usual offerings. With that said, it couldn’t compete in the market for varying reasons. There weren’t many made (about 3,000), meaning the remaining ones are highly collectible.

In 1987, 9 years after the XLCR was discontinued, Nick Ienatsch built a custom version that used a 1,100cc Evo motor, SuperTrapp 2-to-1 exhaust, Storz rear-set footrests, and apparently a tank and a tail section that were bought NOS back in ’87. Nick was Feature Editor of Motorcyclist Magazine at the time, but the bike itself was featured in the December ’87 issue of Hot Rod. It was incredibly popular, and was supposedly what the Cafe Racer should have been. 5 years ago, Bonham’s sold a replica of this bike, but now Brad’s Bikes claims to have the original for sale.

Find this beautiful XLCR for sale here at Brad’s Bikes (it’s on the second row) in Atlanta, Georgia for $9,500.

Triumph T100 Steve McQueen Edition - Right Side

2012 Triumph T100 Steve McQueen Edition

Even from the title of this bike, you can guess it’s probably just a paint job and a signature – not that there’s anything wrong with that. Triumph took their T100 Bonneville and then made some cosmetic changes to remind you of McQueen’s TR6 Trophy in The Great Escape. A limited run of just 1,100 were built.

Triumph T100 Steve McQueen Edition - Certificate

Said changes include the Matte Khaki Green paint, a stenciled logo, a solo seat with luggage rack, skid plate, smaller headlight, and of course – McQueen’s signature on the sidecovers. Oh, there’s also a plaque on the bars denoting the production number. Mechanically, it’s the same as a T100, complete with the nifty throttle bodies that look like carbs. For more information, check out this review from Rider Magazine.

Bultaco Metralla 250 - Left Side

Needs Some Work – 1968 Bultaco Metralla 250

Here’s a lovely Metralla that was last ridden in 1994. Despite the 20 year absence from our public roads, it still looks good, and it’s as cheap as I’ve seen a good looking Metralla in a long time. If you’re feeling lucky, maybe you’ll find this won’t need much work at all and you’ll have a classic bike for a decent price.

Find this Metralla for sale here on Craigslist in Minneapolis, Minnesota for $5,500.
