My first bike was a 1971-ish Honda SL125. I think we, I was 14, paid like $250 for it. Now granted this is a 350, but damn they’re asking $7,800.

For Sale: 1976 Triumph Bonneville 750 (Manassas, Virginia) $2,500

I don’t get to Manassas too often, maybe things are expensive there, but $2,500 for a project bike that doesn’t run seems steep.

I love Bonnevilles, and this one listed on Craigslist has potential.

Like late-1970s stock Hondas? Here’s a beautiful 1978 Honda CB400 with less than 7,000 miles for sale in Maryland for $2,999.

Despite that I own this exact bike in black, I wouldn’t buy this one. I paid $650 for my all-stock 1978 Honda CB400. My bike wasn’t as perfect as this one, but this isn’t a bike I’d want to keep stock. I chopped up the fenders, new handlebars, gauges, etc, but that’s my plan with all vintage bikes.

If you’re looking for a mint condition Honda CB400, this might be perfect for you.

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.

For Sale: 1967 Honda CT90 (Herndon, Virginia) $1,300

1967 Honda CT90

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.
