In Fairfax, Virginia, this 1972 Honda CB450 is for sale for $3,000.

Here’s why I wouldn’t buy this bike CB450 – it’s too expensive. If however, you’re looking for a stock 1972 Honda CB450 with some upgrades, this might be a great bike for you.

But if you’re like me, and you like chopping up these old bikes. I’m not going to chop one up that looks this nice.

The seller looks like they’ve done some good work on the electrical on this bike. The electrical on these early 1970s Honda’s can be a nightmare. There’s also a custom seat and new suspension.

If I had an extra $1,300 lying around, I’d still not buy this 1967 Honda CT90 for sale in Herndon, Virginia.

I grew up when these things were pretty common and worth a couple hundred bucks. To spend $1,300 on one that isn’t in mint condition is crazy. Even if it were in mint condition, I’d still not pay $1,300 for it, but to each her own.

If I had room in my life for another bike and $4,000 laying around, I’d buy this bike. It’s a 1975 Moto Guzzi 850T3 Interceptor.

The T3 was a landmark bike for Moto Guzzi. I’d love to be able to hit the road with one and this one looks really well loved.

I don’t usually agree with the seller, but I’d pay $4,000 for the Moto Guzzi, if it’s as nice as it looks in the photos.

I don’t know, man. Check out this 1978 Honda CB400A for sale on Craiglist in Warrenton, Virginia.

The seller is asking $2,800 for it, which is crazy to me. I have this bike, but the non-automatic one. Now granted I have to shift mine the old fashioned way, but I paid $650 for it. This one has some upgrades, like a custom exhaust, shocks and the foot pegs were moved. It has a new seat, but to me it’s hideous, I like my stock seat better.

And maybe I’m just an idiot, but the seller says these automagical CB400s are highly sought after, I can’t imagine by who. Why would anyone want an automatic motorcycle? But what do I know?

I put Mikunis on mine and tweaked the sprocket ratio to give me more pop off the line, but these bikes are not fast. They have a short wheel base and ride pretty rough. I’m short, so it fits me OK, but I often wish I had a bigger bike. I just need to finish my XS750 I have tore apart in my garage.
