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.

AJS Stormer 250 - Rear Right

Ending Soon – 1970 AJS Stormer 250

The AJS Stormer was a bit of a flop, as it was a last ditch effort by Norton-Villiers to dump excess inventory of Starmaker engines. However, it was the first MX bike to feature shocks that had been moved up as well as leading axle forks, so the chassis was at least worthy of the venerable AJS name. Head on over to Motocross Action Magazine to learn more if you so desire.

This specific example is claimed to be a survivor that would do well as a rider and not necessarily a show bike. That’s perfect – it means you won’t have worry about scuffing it up when you get it dirty out on the trails!

Instant Ducati Collection - 5 Ducati Sportbikes

Instant Collection – 5 Ducati Sportbikes

I featured this collection 6 months ago, but now it’s gained a 5th brother and an extra $5,000 in asking price.

With the addition of the 916, the seller now offers a sportbike from the last 5 generations of Ducatis:
1.) 1997 Ducati 916 – 9,100 miles.
2.) 2002 Ducati 998S Ben Bostrom – #65 of 155, 3,170 miles.
3.) 2005 Ducati 999R – #153 of 200, 2,085 miles.
4.) 2008 Ducati 1098R – #207 of 450, 1,390 miles.
5.) 2013 Ducati 1199R – 370 miles.

Obviously, the 916 isn’t as special as the others – even in the cover photo, it amusingly looks to be placed further away from the rest of the bikes, like the black sheep of the family. Still, how many times to I get to feature a collection like this? Find this instant collection for sale here on Ducati.MS in Phoenix, Arizona for $95,000.

Harley-Davidson WLA - Front Right

1942 Harley-Davidson WLA

Of all the motorcycles Harley produced for the military, the Harley-Davidson WLA was by far the most common – though that doesn’t mean it’s easy to find nowadays. Based on the WL (W – a model line of bikes, L – high compression, A – Army), this bike helped create a dramatic rise in Harley’s popularity as surplus bikes were sold to civilians, many of whom were servicemen that had come back from the war and wanted a bike like the ones he rode or saw during wartime.

On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter – Premiere at the Dolby Theater

Despite the fact that I live in Los Angeles, I’m not exactly one who enjoys going to the theater or even watching movies in general. But when a friend spotted me a couple of tickets to the premiere of On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter, I figured I was obligated to check it out. It’s not everyday where they close down Hollywood Blvd and turn it into motorcycle parking! Continue reading

Ron Haslam's Racer - 1983 Honda Interceptor Factory Superbike - Old Race

AMA Racer – 1983 Honda Interceptor Factory Superbike

Here’s a Honda Interceptor Factory Superbike, built to compete in the 750cc class and of course built around the legendary Honda V-4. Here’s your chance to get a real factory racebike, though the seller’s stories about pedigree will need some verification. He brings up Ron Haslam and Sam McDonald, as they raced similar bikes in AMA, but I’d love YOUR thoughts on how legitimate this bike is. Continue reading

Nimbus Type C - Right Side

1952 Nimbus Type C

This is what I get for trying to write up posts in advance. Unfortunately, this Nimbus has already sold. I’ll do better in the future to avoid featuring “BIN” bikes on a delay. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The Nimbus motorcycle dates back to 1919, the result of a vacuum cleaner manufacturer that decided expansion into bikes was a worthwhile endeavor. They were technologically advanced, with shaft drive, steel frames, and a telescopic front fork (a year before the BMW R12, though the latter was hydraulically damped). The first Nimbus was affectionately known as the Stovepipe…in 1932 the world was treated to the Nimbus Type C. Continue reading
