Well Preserved – 1982 BMW R65LS

In Germany, Less than 5k, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post Sale Update: This R65LS sold for $4,999 after 19 bids on eBay. Between 1983 and 1985, BMW built a limited edition of their R65. Called the R65LS, it featured a polarizing front fairing that probably makes the bike look faster than the bike actually was. I dig the 80s look…you may not. Whether or not you care for the …

2001 KTM 640 LC4 Enduro

In Austria, Dual-Sport, Less than 5k by Mazlow PetosaLeave a Comment

Post Listing Update: This KTM did not get any interest at the asking price of $4,500. My research for the KTM 640 LC4 Enduro led me to the conclusion that KTM took their race bike, put blinkers on, and sent them to showrooms. Spotty reliability before 2004 and rough vibrations lead to some second thoughts when commuting to an off-road …

In Japan, Less than 5k, Standard by Mathieu Guyot-SionnestLeave a Comment

Post Listing Update: This Vision did not get any interest at the BIN of $2,950. It was relisted at $2,850 with the same result.

2009 Buell 1125R

In America, Less than 5k, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post Listing Update: This Buell was pulled off of eBay due to an “error in the listing”. Erik Buell was a dreamer, and the American sport bike was one of those dreams. We are lucky to still be able to experience them, though sales never quite living up to expectations. There may be some weirdness as is usually evident with …

Wild Custom – Honda Gorilla

In Japan, Less than 5k, Small Displacement by Tim HuberLeave a Comment

Seldom are micro-displacement customs as involved as this one-off Gorilla.

After spending years in California, this example traded hands twice, crossing state-lines both times, before winding up back in the Golden State with its third, …

At the time, Husky’s flagship street-legal dirt bike was the TE510. This seller has banked heavily on the “street” portion with a supermoto conversion that would make for a very entertaining commute.

A decade or so later, and it became increasingly clear to the suits at Harley-Davidson that by neglecting this segment, money was being left on the table. The MoCo did offer a few small-displacement scoots based on …
