The Honda Rune made a huge splash back in 2004, as Honda brought to market a bike that no one believed would ever make it past concept. Just look at it!

The motorcycle community was stunned to see something like this coming from Honda, of all manufacturers, due to stereotypes of conservative design, but you’d be hard-pressed to have found another firm that could have pulled off this bike. Though all the visual indicators give the impression that this bike is heavily raked and would be a handle to deal with, Honda’s engineers were able to make it quite manageable despite the 750+ pound weight. Most custom choppers built with this visual geometry are awful to ride, but this Honda Rune avoids that pitfall.

Because of the custom looks yet civilian ride, this bike has been very popular with the few people that could afford the original MSRP of nearly $30,000. This particular bike comes equipped with several extras, including a custom seat (the original seat is seen by some as useless beyond 50 miles), Rifle windshield, custom pinstripes, and a whole lot of chrome.

The Honda Rune is truly a collectible bike, an instant classic. Many others are starting to feel that way, which is why values on this bike are actually starting to appreciate – an incredibly rare fact with bikes this ‘young’. Find it here on Craigslist for $23,500 in Lincoln, California.
