For the second time in a row, Robert Horn earns congrats for being the first one to identify this Italian oddball as a Negrini. Specifically, it’s a Negrini 50 Sport that’s going to need a full restoration.
In Moto Guzzi’s long history, there are several models that have stood the test of time. But for many, the ultimate offering is the first gen LeMans. Said fans may appreciate this example, as it has just 2,049 miles and it’s never been titled before.
The tank logo won’t help you on this one as it’s just a sticker. Still, are the body panels and remaining paintwork enough for you to identify this rare Italian project? If it helps (it probably doesn’t), I’ll add that this company was one of the many firms of the day that outsourced engine production…
The nomenclature is pretty straightforward – what’s bigger than a Monkey? A Gorilla! Honda started offering a big brother to the Monkey in 1978, though they’re very difficult to find in the US. This one’s even harder to find, as it’s a limited edition called the Tokyo Limited (they made a similar version of the Monkey). Thankfully, Cycle Refinery in …
If one is good, two must be better, right? That must be what reader Jim A is thinking, as he’s snapped up two Yamaha SDR200s that we’ve featured here on Bike-urious this year.
Kyriacos “Charlie” Mavros passed away last year in a motorhome crash while en route to an AHRMA race in Carolina, and his incredible collection of motorcycles (mostly sportbikes) is being offered up with no reserve in November by J. Wood & Co. It’s a staggering list of bikes for those of you that like to go fast on two wheels.
Our general policy on the new auction site is that we don’t relist bikes that didn’t sell. But we make exceptions when a seller is willing to relist with no reserve so we know the bike’s going to a new owner! That’s the case with this Ninja 750R, which is owned by American roadracer Steve Rapp.

Today on the auction site we’ve got a SP2 version of the Honda RC51 in the less-common black – and I love it because it’s got Sato pipes!
Honda of Russellville in Arkansas has a leftover Africa Twin DCT that they’re offering up for $8,985 “out the door”. Considering the original retail price was nearly $14,000 plus tax/title/license, this represents quite a deal if you don’t feel the need to shift for yourself.
You guys seemed to get a kick out of the VW-powered R60 Tim found earlier in the week, so here’s one that ups the ante with a sidecar!

Last month we featured an ’83 K100-based R80GS tribute project from the UK’s November Customs, and while I was a fan of their Bavarian build, it’s got nothing on their more recent 1991 Kawasaki Zephyr custom. Inspired by endurance racers, the Japanese four-banger features modern top-shelf components including inverted (Showa) Ducati 848 forks and triples, and Triumph Thruxton 1200 wheels …
Today on the auction site we’ve got a Tuono Factory from the first year of APRC (Aprilia Performance Ride Control) – an advanced suite of electronics with traction control as well as independent wheelie and launch control that perfectly complements the glorious motor. This example’s got a few goodies such as a Graves slip on pipe and OFT Stage 2 …
Last month we saw some great bikes – but did they sell? And if so, for how much?
