Last month we featured some great bikes – but did they sell? And if so, for how much?

This list will only include listings from eBay (or other auction sites). I unfortunately have no way of finding out final sale prices of bikes offered on Craigslist/Cycle Trader/Kijiji/etc. With that said, here are some highlights from last month:

Battletwin – 1989 Buell RR 1200 – sold for $19,601.50 after 36 bids on eBay in Grants Pass, Oregon

Rare SuMo Convert – 1989 Yamaha TDR250 – sold for $7,150 after 21 bids on eBay in Mill Valley, California.

Restored – 1968 Norton Commando Fastback – after being relisted, sold for $8,000 with 16 bids on eBay in Cedar Falls, Iowa.

Winning History – 1941 Indian Chief Flat Track Racer – sold for $15,000 after just 2 bids on eBay in Des Moines, Iowa

No Reserve Reg Pridmore Race Replica – 1974 BMW R90S – after 27 bids on eBay, this replica sold for $15,037 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

“Sophia” – 1974 Moto Guzzi V7 Sport – Sophia sold for $10,600 after 17 bids on eBay in Portland, Oregon.

One-Off Custom – 1964 Jacobsen Motorbike – after being relisted, this Jacobsen sold for $920 after 6 bids on eBay in Newark, Ohio.

Can I Get An AMEN? 1978 Honda CB750 Chopper – sold for $2,650 after 41 bids on eBay in Duluth, Minnesota

Ending Soon – 1969 Kawasaki H1 Mach III – after 68 bids on eBay, this sold for $15,191 in Springfield, Illinois.

Built in Varese – 1995 Ducati 916 – after 19 bids on eBay, this Varese-built 916 sold for $6,500 in Willis, Texas.

1953 Gilera 150 Sport – sold for $3,300 after 12 bids on eBay in Costa Mesa, California.

1991 Moto Guzzi 1000S – sold for the BIN of $15,000 in Bend, Oregon.

Pre-Sorted – 1974 Norton Commando 850 – After 32 bids on eBay, this Commando sold for $8,352 in Banner Elk, North Carolina…to a Bike-urious reader!

162 of 202 – 1972 BSA A70L Lightning – sold for $7,250 after 15 bids on eBay in Idyllwild, California.

Possible Steal – 1967 Triumph T120TT – this was a weird one. Technically, it sold for $8,100 in Castro Valley, California. But there were definitely some questions about the listing – and the listing itself was eventually pulled off of eBay. Long story short, I wouldn’t factor this in if you’re trying to determine the value of a T120TT…

Of the bikes that did not sell, here are some examples that I thought were noteworthy:
Factory AMA Superbike – 2005 Ducati 999 – did not meet reserve despite 24 bids on eBay up to $18,100 in the United Kingdom.

AJ Lewis Restoration – 1953 Ariel Square Four – despite 33 bids up to $23,100 in Miami, Florida, this Square Four did not meet reserve.

Sandcast K0 – 1969 Honda CB750 – despite 54 bids up to $22,000, this CB750 did not meet reserve in Washington, Illinois.

1 of 246 – 1975 Ducati 900SS – despite 24 bids up to $37,600 on eBay, this bike did not meet reserve in Manhattan Beach, California.
