If you’ve been thinking about a Mikuni upgrade for your old twin, it’s worth it. I put Mikunis on my 1978 Honda CB400. It was a wise $450 investment. The performance increase is significant. It jumps off the line. I’ve also modified my gear ratio to give me more power off the line. But now… Read more »

Whoa, check out this bad ass little 1979 Sachs Prima G3 for sale in Takoma Park, Maryland. It’s got a new motor and has been completely refurbished, said the seller. If I had an extra $1,200 and was in the market for a small knock around scoot, I’d jump on this one before it’s gone…. Read more »
Check out this 1973 Yamaha TX500 for sale in Vermont. It looks pretty nice. The seller said they’ll take $1,750, but you might be able to get it for $1,500 or less.
Yesterday I posted about this 1972 BMW R75/5. Well if you’re into BMWs here’s another R75 for sale. This one’s in Silver Spring and the seller’s asking $4,000 rather than $17,000.
So there’s this guy in Maryland, well actually Belize, that supposedly has this fully restored 1972 BMW R75/5 with sidecar and trailer. It’s sitting in a crate somewhere – I assume it’s in Maryland. He’s asking for $17,000. Apparently he moved to Belize, was planning on shipping the bike to Belize, but now he doesn’t… Read more »
There’s a pretty nice looking 1973 Honda CB350 for sale in Gaithersburg, Maryland. The seller is asking $2,500 for it. At that price, they’re looking for someone who appreciates the bike for it as a stock bike. For someone like me who’d want to chop it up, I wouldn’t go more than $1,800 for it.
Check out this stock 1977 Yamaha XS650 for sale in Reston, Virginia. The seller is totally insane to be asking $3,400. I’d go like $1,000 for this bike. I’d want to chop it up.
Maybe I’m just fucked up in the head, but I have no idea where this seller is coming up with $3,499 for this stock 1981 Kawasaki KZ100. As a basic bike, it looks perfect. It’s got low miles. It looks like it’s spent most of it’s life in a garage. But it’s still a stock… Read more »
Here’s a 1977 Suzuki GS550 for sale in Virginia. It’s got some upgraded parts, and it’s sort of cafed, but it’s half-assed at this point. The seller is asking $2,350 for this bike. If it runs really nice and is mechanically mint, I’d do $2,000 for this bike. The backend is jacked up looking. The… Read more »
I’m a huge fan of CX500’s – it’s like a poor man’s Moto Guzzi. Here’s a chopped up 1980 CX500. I’m not a huge fan of how this bike came out, it looks off-balance from a design perspective, but it’s got a lot of nice parts, so anyone looking for a bobber, this could be… Read more »
