If last week’s 50th Anniversary Edition was a bit more than you wanted to pay but you still want to relive the magic of what made monkey bikes special for both kids and adults, here’s a 3-owner example that just got an extensive amount of work done so that it’s ready to enjoy.

There’s something special about micro-displacement trail bikes. So many of us have a sentimental attachment to these little machines as a lot of riders spent time romping around on these as kids, for a lot of people this was their first experience on a motorcycle. Restored examples of these machines aren’t very common and the direction this CT70’s builder took …
Bandit9 is by far one of the most creative companies building motorcycles today. Their designs are objectively unique and creative as hell. Though Bandit9’s bikes are technically small production runs, these machines are still pretty rare and incredibly well priced considering the quality and character of their motorcycles.
It’s not often that you see small displacement bikes like the Honda Grom undergo such extreme and extensive customization but that’s exactly what this seller has done. The vast majority of the mods on this custom Grom are cosmetic but a handful of components have been thrown into the mix to improve the little guy’s performance as well. While I …
Built by the Saginaw Products Corporation, the Powerbike was a conversion kit that you could slap onto any pedal-driven bicycle. All you had to do was remove the bicycle’s rear wheel, bolt on the Powerbike, and then hook up a fuel tank, fuel lines, and the throttle cable. They were successful enough that Sears started to offer pre-converted Powerbikes. The …
That’s right, “or.” This seller is offering you the choice between a NSR80 or a NSR50 Mick Doohan Repsol Commemorative edition. Which one would you pick? I’m sticking with Mick.
When it comes to naming motorcycle models, Hodaka might win. Rat. Super Rat. Dirt Squirt. Combat. Wombat. Wombat Combat. Ace. Road Toad. Hodaka was a Japanese motor builder for Yamaguchi motorcycles in 1963 when Yamaguchi went bankrupt. PABTCO, based in Athena, Oregon went looking for a replacement to fill the void left in their sales niche. The fact that PABTCO’s …
A couple of years ago I attended my first Vintage GP. I went there specifically to check out some sidecars, but there were a lot of great classes. One of my favorites was the CB160 race, because it begins with a Le Mans start. I hope the next owner of this bike will participate in similar events.
Introduced in 1964, the C2TR was a 120cc trail bike with enough equipment to be street legal if the rider desired. It was also known as the RoadRunner, but this example hasn’t lived up to its name yet as it has just 950 miles on the odometer.
Honda never sold the CBR150R in the US, but at least two examples have somehow made its way to the States. This one has just 2 miles and it’s currently on display on the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa.
Just for 1990, America got a taste of Honda’s NSF50F two stroke “sport” bike. Despite the diminutive size, it’s a street legal bike with a claimed top speed of 55 miles per hour. It makes me think of a MB5 that got updated with liquid cooling and then painted by a Miami coke dealer. I want one.
If they’ve even heard of it at all, riders are usually familiar with the Ducati Bronco as a 125cc bike. But it was also available in 85cc and 98cc variants – here’s one of the tiny ones that is close being completely restored. Who’s ready to finish the job and get a little Italian jewel n the process?
