1979 Honda CBX

In Japan, Sport by Jeffrey PamerLeave a Comment

The Honda CBX has become increasingly not-so-rare on Craigslist and eBay. I come across them all the time hunting for cool machines, and while some are in better shape than others, all their values continue to go up. What I find interesting about them is not just the amazing engine, but the fact that by the end of its short …

2014 Triumph Street Triple

In England, Sport by Mazlow PetosaLeave a Comment

Post Listing Update: This Street Triple did not get any interest at the opening bid of $4,800. For many, naked bikes are the ultimate blend of performance and streetability. Meatier midrange and upright bars turned out to be a worth a couple of horses on the top end. However, the spotlight is often shown on the extremes. The Yamaha FZ-07 …

2007 KTM 690SM

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

Sold between 2007-2011, the KTM 690SM was an excellent option for riders who wanted the handling joy of a supermoto racer that was toned down enough to be street friendly. These bikes wont’ win any all-around competitions, but if you emphasize agility and don’t spend a lot of time on the highway, it’s hard to do much better.

Post Sale Update: This Coppa Italia sold for $8,800 after 22 bids on eBay. A very limited edition of the V11, the Coppa Italia was very well spec’d, with Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes, an optional $2,000 titanium exhaust, and more. I’ve seen estimates between 40 and 50 for the number imported into the US. Every example I’ve seen in the …

319 of 2000 – 2001 Ducati MH900e

In Italy, Sport by Jeffrey PamerLeave a Comment

Mike Hailwood was a legend. Short story: 9 World Championships, 76 Grand Prix wins, and 14 Isle of Man Victories. The full story, which I can’t recommend enough, can be found here on his official website. At age of 40 (which doesn’t seem as old as it used to) in 1978, he came out of retirement to win the Isle …

Model 18 – 1968 Bultaco El Bandido

In Off-Road, Spain by AbhiLeave a Comment

One of the rarer Bultacos ever made, the El Bandido 360 was an open class racer that could be ordered with either a 19″ or 21″ front wheel depending on your desire to compete in MX events or Scrambles. Either way, you’d get a beautiful bike with one of my favorite logos in motorcycling.

C&J-Framed Restomod Racer – 1979 Yamaha TT500

In America, Japan, Off-Road by Tim HuberLeave a Comment

I’ve recently been stumbling upon a decent number of C&J-framed examples, but this particular specimen has to be my favorite one yet. Constructed by C&J in the late ’70s, this machine features a Yamaha TT500 engine housed in a C&J chassis. It’s builder(s) also opted to outfit the bike with fenders, tank, and tail units off of other Yamaha MXers.

In Japan, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post Sale Update: This CB400F sold for $6,000 after 31 bids on eBay. An evolution rather than a revolution, the Honda CB400F is blessed with one of the most beautiful production exhaust systems ever created – known by some as the “waterfall pipes”. It’s so iconic that Honda has brought the style back for the new CB650F! Though it wasn’t …

1981 Moto Guzzi V50 Monza

In Italy, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post Sale Update: This Monza sold for $6,328 after 35 bids on eBay. When Moto Guzzi first released the V50 in the late 70s, they were met with a tepid response from an American market that preferred bigger bikes and expected smaller bikes to be cheaper. To help the model stand out, Guzzi released a sportier version in 1980 called …
