Post-Sale Update: This S90 did not last long! The listing was taken down within hours of it being featured. Y’all know how much I love the Honda S90 – and here’s one for just over a grand.
Post Sale Update: This CB sold for $2,125 after 16 bids on eBay. Also known as the Mini Hawk, the Honda CB160 featured an over-bored CB125 that produced 16.5 horsepower at 10,500rpm. Light, nimble, and beautiful, they’ve become a favorite in small displacement vintage racing.
In the 50s and 60s, CZ was at the top of its game. After World War II, it was the second largest manufacturer of motorcycles in Europe, plus it was dominating motocross competition worldwide.
When automatic transmissions were the hot new innovation in automobiles, manufacturers gave them amazing names like Powerglide, TorqueFlite, Ultramatic, and even Toyota’s Toyoglide. Honda also got in the game with both cars and motorcycles with the Hondamatic (why the hell didn’t they bring that name back for the new DCT they’re using in bikes?), but did you know that Suzuki …

Am I crazy or is this a reasonable price for the G80? I don’t believe I normally find running examples (even if they’re all blacked out) for under 4 grand.
Initially designed to target the US police bike market, the V1000 Convert was the first production large displacement shaftie. You can probably guess why it was called Convert – the bike had a torque converter which allowed for smooth shifting between the two gears and allowed a rider to stop the bike while in gear.

Named after Ascot Park, a former flat-track raceway in Los Angeles, the Honda Ascot (also known as the VT500) was a V-Twin standard that was styled after flat-track bikes.
