In Off-Road by Abhi4 Comments

Post-Listing Update: The Drysdale Dryvtech 2x2x2 did not get further than the opening bid, so it’s been relisted with a BIN of approximately $13,750 here on eBay. Here’s a true oddity – the Drysdale Dryvtech 2x2x2. The name comes from being a “two wheel drive, two wheel steer, two wheeled bike.”

In Dual-Sport, Sweden by Abhi1 Comment

In the 60’s, Edison Dye, known by some as the father of American Motocross, convinced management at Husky to build a street-legal dual-sport to compete with the proliferation of similar bikes in the American market, like the Yamaha DT-1. The resulting bike was a high-tech wonder, the Husqvarna 360 Sportsman. But today I’ll do you one better – this Sportsman …

$1,000 – 1979 Suzuki SP370

In Dual-Sport, Japan by AbhiLeave a Comment

The Suzuki SP370 is a hard to find vintage dual-sport that features classic looks and…that’s pretty much it. It wasn’t very powerful (25 horsepower) but cost just as much as Yamaha’s 500cc competitor. With that said, it’s hard to argue with a grand. This example was stored for years and though it needs a little bit of TLC, it currently …

8.401 – 2011 BMW S1000RR Turbo

In Germany, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

8.401 is the number of seconds that this bike has ate up a quarter mile in the past. Thanks to some serious work including a DaVinci Turbo, PS2000 ECU, and VP100 race fuel, this is one of the fastest S1KR’s you’ll find. With that said, you could turn down the tune and run it on E85 and still have something …

3 Hodakas and Misc Parts

In America, Japan, Off-Road by AbhiLeave a Comment

Hodaka, a Japanese-American joint venture, produced a series of very popular small-engine bikes during the 60s and 70s, with some fantastic names.

1998 Bimota SB6R

In Italy, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

The Bimota SB6R was an uprated version of the SB6, Bimota’s most popular bike – though for a niche Italian manufacturer, “popular” is a relative term (only 600 units were produced).
