Some in Laredo, Texas has 6 classic Brits for sale – and all but one of them work great. We’ve got 3 Nortons, 1 Triumph, 1 BSA, and a Triton.

The listing is offered as a package though the seller is willing to sell bikes individually. Let’s take a look at the offerings, starting with the one non-runner:

1966/67 BSA SPITFIRE/LIGHTNING 650 “BITSA”. It uses a ’67 Spitfire chassis with a ’66 Lightning engine. It needs a wiring harness, battery, and some minor parts. The seller is willing to make it run at cost. Asking price = $3,500.

1964 TRIUMPH 6T THUNDERBIRD 650 STREET TRACKER. This bike has .040 over pistons & rings with some other powetrain modifications, but the most obvious change is the Storz bodywork. The rear subframe was modified to fit the bodywork properly. Asking price = $6,500.

1970 NORTON COMMANDO 750 CAFE RACER. This restomod has a powdercoated frame, paint job aping the Manx racers, and several new parts. Other highlights include Excel wheels, Sparx electronic ignition, overhauled Amal carbs, and clubman rearsets. Asking price = $9,000.

1967/63 TRITON 650 CAFE RACER. A ’63 Norton Altas Featherbed frame has been stuffed with the engine from a ’67 Triumph Trophy TR6. Has a Bonneville dual-carb head with twin Mikuni round slides, Akrton wheels, Norton Roadholder forks, Pirelli tires, DomiRacer gauges, Lyta Sprint gas tank, Tarozzi rearsets, Tomaselli clipons, a new wiring harness, and a whole lot more. Asking price = $7,500.

1972 NORTON COMBAT COMMANDO 750 CAFE RACER. This is probably my favorite. The engine was built by Leo Goff of Memphis Motor Werks, and it’s got Dunstall bodywork. Other goodies include a Sparx 3 phase alternator, Tomasell clipons, Norvil 13″ front brake, Ferodo brake pads, .020 over pistons and rings, Barnett clutch plates, and more. Asking price = $9,000.

1974 JOHN PLAYER NORTON COMMANDO 850 RESTORED ORIGINAL FACTORY SPECIAL. I’ve actually featured this bike before, and for some reason the seller keeps raising the price on it even though it doesn’t get the interest he’s looking for. It’s an original John Player Norton with a well-documented restoration. Asking price = $20,000.

The whole package is available for $55,500 or best offer
