For Sale: 1976 Yamaha RD400 (Belmont, California) $5,500

I can’t see spending $5,500 on this bike, but it looks really clean. It’s just that in that price range there’s a lot to choose from, I don’t know if this stands out in that crowd. For me, I’d have to do some more modifications to the bike and starting at $5,500 is too much.

Hans Muth’s Bandit

Hans Muth’s Suzuki Bandit custom bike looks great, you can read all about it on Bike EXIF. Muth is clearly a talented designer and that shows in his work.

1978 XS650 Bobber (Montpelier, Vermont) $2,900

There is no brake light, turn signals, the plate is mounted sideways (you can’t do that in Vermont) and I don’t see a speedometer. Since you can’t legally ride… Read more »

Modern Metals 1974 Honda CL360

Pipeburn has the story on this 1974 Honda CL360 customized by Modern Metals. I can safely say that I like the bike, but I would have done a few things differently. I don’t like the gold frame, I think it looks gaudy. And I’m not a fan of the tank paint job. With the frame… Read more »
