1999 Cagiva Gran Canyon

In Dual-Sport, Italy, Less than 5k by Ted Clough0 Comments

Cagiva is an Italian motorcycle manufacturer. It’s history would make a great basis for an Italian Motorcycle-themed soap opera. Giovanni Castiglioni and his sons ran the business out of Varese, Italy. Over the years there were deals involving a used Aermacchi/Harley Davidson factory, a buyout of Ducati in 1985, and later buyouts of Moto Morini and Husqvarna. Most of these …

1971 Triumph T25

In Dual-Sport, England by Abhi0 Comments

I find Triumph’s “Blazer” series of the T25 a tad confusing, as there’s a few versions with minor differences. Because this example does not have a handlebar brace, my guess would be that it’s the T25SS, or the regular Street Scrambler. It’s missing the distinctive original exhaust but this bike is being sold by a friend of mine that I …

In Dual-Sport, Japan by Abhi0 Comments

Though they are no longer in business, Service Honda was well known not just for supplying OEM parts but also for the creation of an aluminum-framed open class monster called the 500AF. It all started in 1997, where as a personal project Service Honda stuffed a 500cc 2-stroke motor into a Honda CR250. The results were dramatic, and Service Honda …

1990 Honda Transalp

In Dual-Sport, Japan, Less than 5k by Ted Clough0 Comments

In the late 1980’s Honda jumped into the Dual-Sport fray with their Transalp. Initially conceived as a 500, it was bumped to 600 (actually 583cc) by the time it was introduced in 1987. It was a V-twin 4-stroke that put out roughly 50 hp. It was actually too big to be a motocross or enduro bike, and didn’t really fit …

1989 Honda NX650 Dominator

In Dual-Sport, Japan, Less than 5k by Abhi0 Comments

My first taste of dual-sporting was with a beat up NX650, so I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for them. They don’t come up for sale very often, and this is one of the nicest I’ve seen in a while (I’d put the original front fender back on in an instant, though).

2007 Triumph Scrambler with Sidecar

In 3 Wheels, Dual-Sport, England by Abhi0 Comments

Nowadays it seems like every manufacturer is releasing a scrambler (and Triumph just pulled the wraps off their new Street Scrambler as well, you can check out RevZilla’s review here). But a decade ago, Triumph was way ahead of the game when they were the first to debut a modern scrambler. This example extends its carrying capacity with the addition …

Ooh, Shiny – 1966 Honda CL77 Scrambler

In Dual-Sport, Japan by Abhi0 Comments

The seller of this bike aptly describes it as “over-restored.” The story is that the restorer worked at a chrome shop, so any parts that he didn’t either have NOS or couldn’t buy new were chromed! The current seller bought it from the restorer (whom I will now call Chromefinger) and has kept it in his living room as a …
