In America, Cruiser by Abhi1 Comment

The Chief was one of Indian’s most popular models, and was built for over 31 years in the first run. Over this 30+ year run, it evolved to gain several innovations, including OHV and 4 valves per cylinder, though it seems most innovations never made it past the racing bikes. Still, this beauty was capable of 85 miles per hour. …

1975 BMW R90S

In Germany, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

I adore the BMW R90S, which was a game-changer when it was released to the world. The gray and smoke paint scheme shown here was the first of two available paint schemes, both of which are beautiful and incredibly difficult to reproduce. With oversight from Hans Muth, this bike was built to show the world that BMW could make more …

Colossal Failure – 2003 Cannondale X440

In America, Off-Road by AbhiLeave a Comment

The Cannondale X440 was the swansong of Cannondale motorcycles, a subsidiary of the well-known American bicycling company. In the late 90s, Cannondale tried to move into motorsports, with an off-road bike and an ATV. Long story short, it was a disaster. $80 million later, the company declared bankruptcy, having left behind an interesting story of what happens when you can’t …

1976 Triumph Tiger TR7R

In England by AbhiLeave a Comment

This Triumph Tiger 750 is in great shape with 21,700 miles on the clock. The kill switch does not work, it’s a kick start only, and it has pipes from a Norton Commando. Everything besides the kill switch works great, and I think the original shade of green is absolutely fantastic. Find this Triumph Tiger for sale in Chesterfield, Virginia …

In Japan, Touring by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post-Sale Update: This CBX sold for the opening bid of $7,900. Honda wasn’t actually the first to put a 6-cylinder powerplant in a production motorcycle – Benelli earned that honor with the 750 Sei. Thanks to the modern day Goldwing, the idea of a 6-cylinder Honda isn’t a foreign concept, but it all started with the CBX. Built in response …
