Based out of Madrid, Spain, Classic Co has been building some interesting customs since 1994. Their passion is in racing, and it shows in their builds. Here’s a beautiful vintage racer that started as a Moto Guzzi Le Mans.
MZ has produced some oddballs over the years, but the BK350 stands out thanks to a 2-stroke opposed twin motor with shaft drive. THis example is even cooler thanks to a Simpson aluminum sidecar.
Thanks to a slight bump in power (67-70 horsepower) and a decrease in weight (dry weight of 369 pounds), the seller calls this a Hot Rod R80GS. Would you ride it?
In 1969, an AMA rule-change would force Harley-Davidson’s then racing manager Dick O’Brian and his team to build the XR750 racer. It used a smaller version of its predecessor’s (the KR) 900cc engine. The first years of the XR had a lack of power as well as overheating issues so in 1972 parts of the engine were changed (aluminum head …
In Canada – 1976 BMW R90SView Post
The mid 2000’s were something of a golden era for sportbikes. Sales were booming and manufacturers had deep pockets and were willing to throw heaps of cash into R&D to produce ever-evolving superbikes and supersports in the then highly competitive sportbike arms race. This 07′ CBR1KRR was released around the height of this era because as you may remember: some …
Los Angeles Sheriff – 1961 Harley-Davidson FLHView Post
I recently featured a SB8R as part of an Italian collection, but this one’s in better shape and the seller is a frequent participant on Bike-urious! Here’s #18 of the 250 built, and it fresh off a showing at the Quail Motorcycle Gathering.
Let’s follow-up the Laverda museum from earlier this week with just one bike – but it’s one of the most important models of the marque. The 750S was one of Laverda’s first big bikes, and it was very quickly combined with the 750GT to become the legendary SF line.
First debuted at the 1985 Sydney Motorcycle Exhibition, this road going replica was an instant success. So much so that even the little sibling versions F3 350 and 400 were thrown into production in an attempt to cater to markets with more focus on smaller displacement machines.
This beautifully rebuilt 1951 BMW R51/3 underwent a full restoration in 2013 and is one seriously beautiful collectors machine. The pistons, crank, valves, transmission, rear-end and “much more” have been completely redone according to the seller who I’m more than inclined to believe. Only 400 miles have been put on the bike since the rebuild four years ago. This particular …
This rolling testament to meticulous maintenance is a Suzuki GS550E – the original owner put nearly 80K on it between 1980 and 1988 while changing the oil every 1,500 miles. After nearly 3 decades of slumber, the bike has been brought back to life and it’s now looking for owner number 2 – I wonder how many miles they’ll put …
A seller in Springville, Utah has got a couple of Japanese 400s that are rarely found in the US – a 1990 Suzuki GSX-R 400 and a 1992 Yamaha FZR400RR. Both bikes rev to at least 14,000 rpm and would be an unique way to carve some corners. Which would you pick?
A Museum of 81 LaverdasView Post
Pick a decade – we’ve got a bike from the 80s, 90s, and 00s. Two Bimotas and one Laverda are up for grabs from a seller in Central California. Which one would you take home?
