In Japan, Sport by Abhi2 Comments

Post-Listing Update: This Katana got no action at the asking price of $9,990. The Suzuki Katana is a very distinctive bike designed by Hans Muth (the fairing might remind you of a similar Muth creation – the BMW R65LS). In the late 70s and early 80s, Japanese manufacturers were selling standard bikes as fast as they could make them.  And …

1994 Harley-Davidson VR1000

In America, Race by Abhi1 Comment

Back in 1988, Harley decided to try their hand at knocking off Ducati from their perch atop AMA Superbike. Unfortunately, what would have been top notch technology when the bike was supposed to have been released (in 1991) was well behind the curve when it actually started racing (in 1994). Homologation requirements resulted in the Harley-Davidson VR1000, of which only …

1988 Honda NX650

In Dual-Sport, Japan by AbhiLeave a Comment

1959 Panther Model 120

In England, Standard by AbhiLeave a Comment

Built by Phelon and Moore between ’59 and ’66, the Panther Model 120 was an upgrade of their previous Model 100 – but unfortunately the upgrade earned a reputation for being less reliable. Competition advanced quicker than the Panther did, and the model was killed after only about 2,500 were built.
