1983 Suzuki XN85 Turbo – $15,500


SELLER SAYS: SELLER SAYS: 1983 Suzuki XN85 Turbo for sale. Ultra rare, with a low 14,729 miles. Very original bike. The XN85 was not so much about the engine, but the chassis. The main frame was a round-tube double-cradle affair, with a triangulated backbone running to the steering head. Up front was a 37mm Kayaba fork, with anti-dive and air-adjustability. The fork connected to a 16-inch front wheel. Sixteen inches?! That was racing stuff. But even with a pretty lengthy 58.7 inches between axles, the bike handled extremely well. There were not many Turbo bikes made back in the ’80s and this was one of the better ones. We have had the tank and seat cowl professionally repainted but the headlight fairing and front guard are still original paint with some chips and scratches (see photos). Comes with full service manual and magazine road test articles. It starts and runs nice and has no mechanical issues. Can offer interest-free lay-by terms. Delivery to Perth $850. Contact Brad on 0400 793 900 (Brisbane, Qld)

1974 Moto Guzzi 750 Sport – $27,500


1974 Moto Guzzi 750 Sport for sale

SELLER SAYS: 1974 Moto Guzzi 750 Sport for sale. 36,300 miles. These were built with no expense spared to the best of engineering standards. Hence they were beyond the reach of many due to their high price (like Laverdas). Great fun to ride. 4LS front brake and big drum rear. This sports a brand new, internally sealed, tank and paint. New rear tyre and half worn front. It was fettled by Mario when it arrived in Perth some years ago and, from the mechanical condition, he believed it to be genuine mileage. It is in very good overall condition with nothing to spend. Alas, I can no longer ride it due to accumulated injuries to my 70yo body. Open to sensible offers. Contact Craig on 0429 088 706 (Perth, WA).

1973 Ducati 750 Sport – $89,000


SELLER SAYS: 1973 Ducati 750 Sport for sale. Ground up nut-and-bolt restoration by Vee Two Australia last year. Best-in-the-world quality restoration by Brook Henry himself. Many new old stock parts (eg carbs, discs, callipers, others too numerous to list). Sachse digital programable ignition. Whole-of-bike VeeTwo Australia warranty. 200km. Contact Bill on 0429 689 114 (Albany, WA).

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: A glorious piece of motorcycle history here, and surely one of the most beautiful bikes ever made. The 750 Sport was released in 1972 and was Ducati’s first twin-cylinder sports bike. It was basically a souped-up 750GT and was the predecessor to the so-called “green-frame” 750 Super Sport of 1974, released in celebration of Paul Smart’s extraordinary race win at Imola in 1972 (read about it here). Asking prices for Super Sports have gone mad in the past decade — $300k is no longer unusual, if you can find one — making Bill’s price on this bike seem remarkably reasonable! Apart from its historical pedigree, this bike also has the fingerprints of Ducati guru Brook Henry all over it, a fact that justifies the assertion that this is a best-in-the-world quality restoration. Ducati fans don’t need me to introduce Brook Henry but, for others, Brook runs a business called Vee Two which is globally renowned. (Visit the Vee Two website here.) With Ducati abandoning the L-twin engine for its top-flight sports bikes in recent years (don’t get me started …) these early L-twins can be expected to become increasingly sought after. Just magnificent.

1960 Norton ES2 – $14,000

1969 Triumph Bonneville 650 – $24,000 $21,500


SELLER SAYS: Original Olympic flame and silver, 1969 Triumph 650 Bonneville for sale. Matching frame and engine numbers. In excellent original condition. This is the last of the British ’60s Bonnevilles. The bike was imported from the United States and restored locally some time ago. Since restoration, it has only covered 7,546 miles. Recently I have had the electrical system upgraded, a new TriSpark ignition and coils fitted, the original carbies have been cleaned and new gaskets fitted, new top end gaskets fitted, new clutch cable, new front fork gaiters fitted, new mufflers and new rear chain fitted. This Bonneville is ready to ride and is reliable. No extra money needs to be spent to enjoy this legendary British Bonneville. For more information call John on 0422 007 456. (Morphett Vale, SA).

2018 Royal Enfield Classic 350 – $9,990


SELLER SAYS: Custom Royal Enfield Classic 350 Scrambler. We started with a 2018 Classic 350 and proceeded to strip it down and replace the fenders, turn signals, brake light, seat, fuel tank, exhaust system, and air box. New knobby tyres, scrambler bars and mirrors completed the transformation from a cool retro classic to a cool looking scrambler. 5,463km. Contact Bruce by email at  (Sydney, NSW)

1967 Norton Atlas cafe racer – $38,000 $30,000


SELLERS SAYS: Rebuilt (not restored) completely in 2015 by Tim Rutherford, Pacific Ave, San Pedro California — and has travelled a mere 600 miles (1000km) since. 1967 Norton Atlas 750cc, the last of the Featherbeds. Original bike with matching numbers. Not until the modern age of circumferential alloy box frames has anyone made a frame as good as Norton’s Featherbed. Hand made alloy Manx-style oil tank, seat and fuel tank by Evan Wilcox in Los Angeles. Mikuni single carby, jetted and tuned to suit megaphone exhaust. I also have Dunstall lookalike reverse cone mufflers if loud is not your style. Commando top end. External oil filter and braided lines. Twin point and coil ignition with LiPo battery in cut-out under tank, provides reliable starting and running. All of the little niggly things that plagued British bikes (apart from oil leaks) has been addressed to create a reliable bike that is a pleasure to ride and invokes comments everywhere I take her. Contact Steve on 0412 079 999 (Dunbogan, NSW).

EDITOR’S COMMENT: Oh, I like this — like a two-wheeled British version of souped-up Falcon GT, this Norton Atlas has been given a going-over with a bunch of period-correct(ish) improvements and one or two 21st Century niceties to create a classic hotrod that starts and goes like something more modern. Norton fanatics will understand the Atlas’ place in history: it was the last Norton with the famous and wildly successful ‘featherbed’ frame, so-named by one of the first racers to use the frame (on a Manx Norton), saying the new frame was akin to riding on a feather bed. That was at the Isle of Man in 1950, so by the late ’60s the frame was showing its age and about to be retired. So too was the Atlas, destined to be replaced by the revered Norton Commando with its ‘isolastic’ frame that used rubber engine mounts to counter vibrations from the big twin. Featherbed fans will tell you that, from a handling point of view, the isolastic frame was a step backwards (although Commando fans might not agree). Either way, this bike of Steve’s looks to be an absolute corker. Check out some more photos here.


2006 Triumph Thruxton – $8,500


SELLER SAYS: 2006 Triumph Thruxton for sale. This bike has been modified to look like a Bonneville and to give it a more upright riding position.

1969 Triumph T120R – $16,500



SELLER SAYS: Triumph T120R for sale. This lovely 1969 Triumph 650 T120R  is a completely stock survivor with only 8000 miles on it. It  has never been taken apart and has all original hardware, even the battery strap that is usually lost.

The bike was in dry storage for many years and has been super well maintained. Starts first kick and runs just like new. All the lights work and charging system is perfect. It has a bit of a “patina” but nothing major.  Seat, tyres and all the rubber are original so tyres will need to be replaced if the intent is to ride it. The only new parts are the battery, fuel lines, Amal carb kit and that’s it.

For anyone that is looking for a stock perfect Triumph Bonneville 650 this is it. The bike is located in Quebec, Canada and has Quebec registration. Seller will assist with crating and shipping.

The price of $16,500 AUD includes prepping, crating and shipping from the Port of Montreal to your nearest port. Contact Norm by email at

SELLER SAYS: My EBR is absolutely brand new. Hasn’t even been pre-delivered. Just been admired in its stored-away status. Built in Wisconsin USA the 1190 RX is the creation of legendary Eric Buell, so naturally it is fitted with many of his signature designer traits such as the fuel storage and the braking system.

1983 BMW R80ST – $12,000


SELLER SAYS: BMW R80ST for sale. This bike has a Siebenrock 1000cc kit, balanced con rods, oil cooler, Red Centre ignition, braided front brake line, 5% higher 5th gear, oil proof clutch, complete stainless exhaust system, LED rear light, tyres still about 50% and has classic rego [not transferable] so it is roadworthy. All receipts are included. These bikes are reasonably rare and a sweet bike to ride. Approx. 140,000km. Contact Jeff on 0419 617 634 (Smiths Lake, NSW)

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: A surprisingly rare machine this one, and a bike that was ahead of its time. The R80ST was basically an R80GS — BMW’s wildly successful big-bore dirt bike — redesigned for mostly street work. It seemed a good idea at the time, and it was — but buyers weren’t ready. While the 1980s motorcycle world was accustomed to road bikes tweaked for the dirt, the idea of a dirt bike tweaked for the road was a bit out there. As a result, the ST was not a big seller. In fact, they were only made from 1983-85, and only about 6,000 rolled off the line. Nowadays, bikes that are most comfortable on the road but quite ok bumping down a gravel road are hugely popular — and a lot of fun; and that’s the R80ST.

2007 Aprilia Pegaso 650 Factory – $5,990


SELLER SAYS: Aprilia Pegaso 650 for sale. This bike is in immaculate condition, is LAMS approved, and has had only one owner from new.

1985 Honda VF1000R – $17,000


1985 Honda VF1000R for sale

SELLER SAYS:  1985 Honda VF1000R for sale. The Honda VF1000R was the high performance member of the Honda VF1000 model family. All models had an advanced V4 998cc double-overhead-cam 16-valve, liquid-cooled engine but the VF1000R had a series of modifications to boost power and bring the bike closer to the Honda FWS1000 race bike.

The most famous modification that was made to the V4 in the Honda VF1000R was the addition of gear-driven camshafts but in addition compression ratio was up from 10:1 to 10.7:1, there were more radical cams with longer exhaust duration and the train of nine gears to drive the camshafts.

The suspension on the VF1000R was notably advanced for a road bike in the 1980s. The front suspension featured air-assist 41mm tube diameter forks with 3-way adjustable rebound damping, TRAC (Torque Reactive Anti-Dive Control), and fork brace. In the rear, the monoshock suspension was a Pro-Link unit with adjustable rebound damping.

This is a very clean example with low mileage. Contact Retro Moto Co on 08 9336 7590 (Fremantle, WA).

1975 Rickman-Kawasaki CR900 – $29,999


SELLER SAYS: 1975 Rickman Kawasaki CR900 for sale. 2,300km. Ground-up restoration. Convertible historic registration. Wheels rebuilt, Ikon shocks, front forks rebuilt, new front disc and drive chain, new master cylinder, brake lines, new pads.

The frame has been re-nickel plated and clear lacquered, and the engine has been restored with oversized pistons, new CR smoothbore carbs, full Dynatec ignition and coils, Kerker 4-into-1 exhaust, new wiring harness, new race gauges, switches and handlebars. All fibreglass panels are new, made in Australia, freshly painted Kawasaki green, and all remaining metal has been power coated.

Everything else is new or rebuilt. Fitted with a bikini fairing. (I’m not a fan of a full fairing as it would cover that freshly bead blasted engine.) All fairing brackets are supplied and power coated if you wish to fit a fairing, and a full set of chain adjusting shims is also supplied. The bike looks and rides as it should. More pictures can be supplied to potential buyers. Contact Gary on 0418 957 153 (Bunbury, WA).

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: I’m old enough to remember the Rickman Kwaka 9, as we called them back in the day, as the hottest motorcycle property that money could buy. Kawasaki’s Z1 900 was still a relatively new piece of kit and was the fastest bike on the planet, making it a dream machine for countless moto-heads across the planet.

So when the Rickman brothers turned their attention to making the big Zed even better, the result was exotica of the highest order. Everyone knew the Z1 (and contemporary competition Honda CB750) left a bit to be desired in the handling department but, apart from loyal Brits clinging to their Tridents and Rockets, most didn’t care too much. But the so-so handling was just the market gap the Rickmans needed.

The brothers had made a name for themselves building off-road frames for British engines, turning many a Matchless and Triumph into a competent off-roader, but taming four-cylinder Japanese engines was a new challenge. It worked a treat, and the frames were superb. They were also highly-sought after back in the day — and today too. This bike of Gary’s looks like an excellent example and would be a great addition to any collection.

1996 Kawasaki ZX7-R 750 – $11,500 $10,000 (offers)

Price reduced from $11,500

SELLER SAYS: 1996 Kawasaki ZX7-R 750 for sale. The Kawasaki ZX7-R remains a highly sought after model today, thanks to a quirky new racing rule ‘homologation’ in the 90s – meaning race bikes needed to be based on publicly available road bikes – this little rule change brought about some of the classic racing greats of the day, with the ZX7R being one of them. These are a classic 90s twin headlight bike, with ram air intakes and a unique eye-catching style and thrilling to ride even in today’s landscape. This example has been freshened up cosmetically using after market bodywork, without compromising the original style of the bike. A true ’90s classic homologation special that you can own and enjoy!

1950 Ariel Red Hunter VH500 – $10,000


Classic motorcycles for sale in Australia

SELLER SAYS: A great looking 1950 VH500 Ariel for sale. An engine overhaul 240km or four years ago and I’m just not riding it enough, when it should be out and about. It’s not original, and was previously used in classic track racing. There are several mods including 100/90-19 front and rear wheels, MAX GPS speedo, ignition key, electronic ignition, 12 volt system with AGM battery, springer front and large fuel tank.

The springer front and large fuel tank are Indian-made from Enfield country. The original tank with new paint and new knee pads is included, as with a few specialist tools. Both tanks have been sealed with Caswell tank sealer. The oil tank has been modified with no internal filter. The tyres should be replaced and there looks like an oil leak from the pushrod tubes when I started it today.

The primary drive cover had been cut when it was raced, and I have sikaflexed it together when in position. Frame# AB1078, Engine# EJ2361X (Not clearly visible on the outside), Gearbox# G90F49. It was on club rego in the Northern Territory and will be sold unregistered. Freight is the buyer’s expense and I can help with dropping it to a transport company.

1975 Triumph Trident  T150 – $20,000


SELLER SAYS: 1975 Triumph Trident T150 for sale. Lovely old bike, fully restored in excellent condition by British Imports, Perth. Lots of dollars spent. Price is firm. Bike is on full West Australian registration. More photos here. Contact Kevin at (Mandurah, Perth WA)

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS:  For those who don’t know the back-story, the Triumph Trident shoulda-been and arguably coulda-been the saviour of the British motorcycle industry. It was conceived, sketched and built to pre-production standard long before Honda released the four-cylinder CB750. The Trident’s designers knew that the long-lived and long-loved British 650 twin had had its day, and riders (in England to some extent, but more importantly in the USA) wanted something bigger, faster and smoother. Their answer was a 750cc triple. And it was a good answer! But Triumph had bigger headaches at the time, most notably its forced merger with BSA, and BSA management said if Triumph was getting a triple then BSA wanted one too. There was much naffing around and arguing, and the Trident project moved at glacial pace. Eventually, Honda gazumped the Brits with the Honda Four, and when the Trident and Rocket 3 were released, it was too late — the buying public had fallen in love with Japan. None of which changes the fact that the Trident was and is an excellent bike, faster and better handling than the Honda, and truly a modern-day collectors’ item. I saw this bike of Kevin’s at this year’s The Bike Shed Times Capel River Classic, and it really is a lovely piece of gear. There are a couple more photos of the bike here, and you can read more of the Trident story here.

2006 Kawasaki VN800 Drifter – $15,000


SELLER SAYS: Vulcan Drifter 800 (VN800E) for sale – Imported from the USA in 2012. Runs great and well maintained. Retro bike loosely based on 1940 Indian Chief, but modern all around. This model is rare, as only imported to Australia for one year and even then, less than 50 were sold.

1978 Honda CX500 – $6,500


Classic Honda motorcycles for sale in Australia

SELLER SAYS: 1978 first year Honda CX500 for sale. The CX was very innovative for its day and proved to be super reliable throughout its life. Loved especially by couriers for its reliability. Now a favourite bike for cafe racer builders, so complete and original looking bikes are getting harder to find.

When I purchased the bike it was running well but was looking rough around the edges. I carried out a complete strip down and the frame was powder-coated and the bike was rebuilt, replacing all the parts that needed replacing. It has been also fitted with an Australian-made Rae-San electronic ignition system, modern regulator and water pump seals replaced. It also comes with a selection of spare parts. Contact Paul on 0410 407 845 (Perth, WA).

2015 Norton Commando SF 961 – $24,750


Classic Norton motorcycles for sale in Australia

SELLER SAYS: 2015 Norton Commando for sale. Out of Donington Hall. This machine is fully sorted and runs like a dream with a Power Commander that you can tune from your laptop. The Commando is fitted with Norton’s Motad-style exhaust system that I picked up personally from the factory, at which time I had the ECU remapped. Ohlins shocks and Brembo brakes ride on old-school spoken rims. All of which provides a unique ride experience. Contact Dan on 0401 135 600 (Busselton, WA).

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: To many, the Norton Commando was the greatest British motorcycle of all time. And to some, no doubt, the greatest motorcycle of all  time. Certainly the Commando of the 1970s was, and is, one of the most stylish bikes to hit the street. They were also great handlers and, for their time, pretty darn quick too. When the British bike industry went belly-up, many a tear was shed for the Commando. So little wonder that there was a cheer right across the planet in 2010, and nowhere louder than in Britain, when the reborn Norton Commando was released.

The new 961 was not just another modern bike wearing an old name. It was a “proper retro” if there can be such a thing. It was low-tech by modern standards, ran on spoked wheels, and had a whole bunch of old-school charm. The early ones also had more than a few teething problems around the engine. This bike of Dan’s has had plenty of attention to iron out any bugs, and looks an absolute treat.

2010 Harley-Davidson FXDWG Dyna – $18,500


SELLER SAYS: One of the last old-school Dynas. I have owned the motorcycle for the last five years, and it had 6500km on it when I purchased. 96-cube engine, 6-speed gearbox, upgraded cam (nothing crazy), EFI, Two Brothers Racing two-into-one exhaust, Le Pera seat. Bike is in top condition. Factory flamed paint. All my bikes are well maintained and all work carried out by professionals. Unregistered at the moment, but will sort out for buyer. 22,500km. Contact Kelly on 0417 970 726 (Albany, WA).

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: The big wide world of Harley-Davidson fans let out an audible groan of sadness when HD HQ made the bold and unexpected decision to dump the much-loved Dyna models. The Dynas were the mid-size Harley — occupying the gap between small (?) Sportsters and the company’s bigger touring bikes. They were the everyman’s Harley. The twin shocks and rubber-mounted engines gave the Dynas that classic Harley look and that classic Harley throb. (When you see a Dyna at idle, you can’t help but wonder whether that engine’s going to bounce clear out of the frame.)

As always, the world has moved on, and both HD and its rider base have survived a world without Dynas. Expect the world is not without Dynas, of course. Harley sold a zillion of them, and I reckon most are still going strong and will be throbbing away for many more years yet. This one of Kelly’s looks like a beaut, with a few appropriate modifications that don’t harm the Harley soul.

2013 Ducati Multistrada Pikes Peak – $16,990  $15,450

SELLER SAYS: An extremely clean example of this model, the Ducati Multistrada was already king of all mountains before the Pikes Peak edition was introduced. The Multistrada won on its first outing at the famous Pikes Peak international hill climb, and has carried on winning many more since. This Pikes Peak factory homage to those race bikes is no slouch itself, powered by the 1200cc Testastretta 11° engine – derived from the 1198 superbike engine – it has been tuned for a smooth linear power delivery especially through the mid range.

Brembo brakes all around, twin 320mm discs up front and a 245mm disc in the rear. Head turning, sporty looks blended with modern features like Bosch ABS, dynamic Ducati Skyhook suspension system and a dynamic digital instrument panel.  Being the S version, it includes all the elements typical of Ducati’s sporting tradition: Marchesini 3-spoke wheels, Termignoni exhaust and carbon fibre accessories.

1974 Ducati GT Special – $45,000 $40,000


SELLER SAYS: This is a GT Special that only a few people have built. Using a 750GT rolling chassis and a 900 Desmo motor running 860 cases, while retaining the right-hand-side gear shift, this bike has been built from the ground up with everything rebuilt. New paint, new exhaust that is ceramic coated with curved Contis, new 40mm Dellortos. The engine had a total rebuild by the late, great Bevel Wizard. New electrics, running GPS speedo, digital tacho, no need for the cable rubbish. Has a number plate issued but never registered or ridden so it’s brand new.

I’m known for my restorations of the bevels and this is one that I was going to keep but as I have another GT Special this one is being sold to fund other things. So be quick if you want a rare bike; a GT with more grunt than the 750 Roundcase, this is it! No low-ballers please. Good luck finding another one.

1974 Harley-Davidson FLH – $35,000


SELLER SAYS: 1974 Harley Davidson FLH for sale. I bought this bike in from Ohio USA in 2012. I had it fully registered for use in NSW but now on club plates which are not transferrable with the sale. It’s a matching numbers bike. For it’s age it is possibly the best one you will ever see. 12,000 genuine and original miles on the clock. The cases have never been split and apart from a master cylinder change, and the usual service, there has never been any major work done to this bike.

The bike also comes with the original front shield fairing as well as the two up seat. Rides like a dream with plenty of power. New battery. Although legal, the front and rear tyres will need a change. Contact Marc on 0415 205 049  or email at (Sydney, NSW)

2010 Harley-Davidson XR1200X – $16,900 $14,990

1976 Kawasaki Z900 – $23,000


SELLER SAYS: Custom-built 1975 Z900 fitted with refreshed 1978 Z1000 A2 engine. 14,198km. Rear disc brake and fairing, Vance and Hines 4-into-1 exhaust. Complete new seat plus recently rebuilt brakes with stainless pistons and OEM rear master cylinder. Presents nicely. Runs hard, handles well and absolutely no oil leaks. Currently on non-transferable club rego. See more photos here. Contact Peter on 0412 543 861 (Queanbeyan, NSW) ref#020523

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: Right at the end of the 1960s, Kawasaki and Honda were both secretly working on all-new top-of-the-range bikes to show the world they could build big bikes better than anyone else. Both were in-line four cylinders, and both were 750cc. Honda was first to hit the market, its CB750 Four proving such a success it took everyone — including Honda — by surprise. Kawasaki retreated to the design table to take the big-bike market another leap forward.

When it finally released the Z1 in 1972, it had grown to 903cc with a double-overhead cam engine that was good for 82 horsepower and 132mph. The Z1 whacked the CB750 out of the park and became the must-have Japanese bike of a generation. Very early Z1s are now fetching seriously big money (one recently sold at auction in the USA for $US50,000) and all the 1970s Zeds have now become collectibles. This bike of Peter’s looks to be a great useable classic, its customisation adding some later-model reliability and functionality, while retaining that unmistakeable Z style.

1977 Moto Guzzi LeMans 850 MkI – $29,000 SOLD

2006 Yamaha FZ1S Fazer 1000 – $6,250


SELLER SAYS: Yamaha FZ1S 1000 sports tourer. Last of the first model, and probably the best. This one has been owned from new by a lady owner, with whom, unfortunately, time has caught up, and now reluctantly must go. Extras include taller screen, sheepskin seat cover, Ventura rack system, Yoshimura “silencer”, rear hugger, etc, etc. Original muffler and screen included. See more photos here. Contact Marion on 0449 578 525 (Toodyay, WA).

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: Somewhere around the mid-2000s, several motorcycle manufacturers hit a sweet spot with big sports tourers . No longer were sports tourers an uncomfortable compromise between being a sports bike and a tourer. While many earlier bikes somehow delivered sports bike comfort and tourer performance instead of the other way around, the designers finally got things right. Yamaha’s FZ1S was right in the middle of this got-it-right period. With a slightly tamed R1 engine at its heart, the FZ1S will go like stink when you want it to, and handle like a sports bike as well. But if you want to take it easy and enjoy the countryside well, no problem mister; even with a pillion on board. This bike of Marion’s looks like a great example, and also reminds us what wonderful value for money is out there in the used-bike market.

2009 Ducati 848 Evo – $14,000


SELLER SAYS: My Ducati 848 Evo is for sale. It has just become too hard to ride with my ageing back and needs a new rider. It’s a pity if it just gathers dust in my garage. This machine has no scratches or marks and rides well as most Ducatis do. Engine is fine, battery maintained, has new Pirelli Super Corsa tyres and is equipped with Termignoni exhaust cans. Nothing to do to this machine except ride it away. Contact Ron on 0417 091 155 or (Perth,WA) ref#200423

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: When the world does a bunch more laps around the sun and we all look back on the petrol-motorbike era, many a vegan beer will be consumed around many a safe, virtual hologram camp fire, debating great motorcycles of the petrol era. If I’m at that safe, virtual hologram campfire, I’ll be casting a vote for the Ducati’s 848 Evo as one of the greatest. Yes, there is a lot of nostalgia associated with the 848 being a twin-cylinder sports bike, back when that was the only kind of sports bike that Ducati made. But even ignoring the wonderful two-cylinderness of the 848 it’s still one of history’s finest two-wheeled achievements, especially the up-spec Evo variant. Specification-sheet aficionados will tell you the Ducati 1098 of the same era boasted a bit better everything than the 848, but ask anyone who’s actually ridden both and you’ll discover most will give the 848 a higher love factor. Its 126hp engine is plenty fast, and the bike rides a bit sharper and lighter than the 1098. There’s a good short review on the Motorcycle News website (here) which describes the Evo as “a masterpiece”, “a class act” and “every bit as fast and exciting as a superbike, but a thousand times easier to ride”. It seems a bit loopy to be talking about a 13-year-old sports bike as a collectible, but we can see a lot of sense in snapping this one up and parking it in the games room. Lovely.

2004 Aprilia RSV1000R – $22,500  $20,000


SELLER SAYS: Showroom condition 2004 Aprilia RSV1000R Factory twin for sale. 4000km. This bike has been parked inside for the last 15 years. Just had a full service, new tyres and has 12 months rego. Full Leo Vince exhaust, this bike looks and sounds amazing. One for the collector. Contact John on 0477 555 486  (Sydney, NSW).

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: One for the collector indeed! There was a time when Ducati owned the market of exotic top-shelf twin-cylinder sports bikes — expensive, focused, stunning to look at, verging on the edge of perfection on the racetrack or twisty mountain road, and boasting a drool factor that bikes made in Japan, England or America somehow could never quite match. Aprilia’s big twin sports bikes stood toe-to-toe with Ducati back in the early 2000s, offering the same moto-sex appeal and, thanks to even smaller production numbers, even more exclusivity. Both manufacturers have since moved on to four-cylinder engines in their top-flight sports bikes (hhmmph!), giving their earlier twins even more collector value than they had before. This bike of John’s looks like a superb example of the breed, and near the pinnacle of two-piston performance-motorcycle evolution. Superb. Read more here.

2000 Harley Davidson Sport – $39,500


SELLER SAYS: A much loved and unique road-going race replica. Alloy race tank, solo seat with two pack paint, clip-ons and quality rearsets. Mikuni 40mm flat slide carb, large intake filter, 1340cc NRHS 88 top end, breather kit, stainless Supertrapp pipes with baffle plates supplied, upgraded ignition and cams producing a dyno verified 99+BHP at the back wheel. Spoked rims with good rubber, triple discs with braided lines all round. Sounds amazing and runs very well. Race stand included (original sidestand fitted) plus some spares. There is no damage and the bike is cosmetically excellent. Not ridden for a few years but everything works and it’s ready for rego (was on full NSW rego). Older owner retiring to a Guzzi single. Offers will not be entertained unless substantial, so serious buyers only. More photos and a video here. Contact John at  (Yass, NSW) ref#160423

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: Well here’s something out of the ordinary — and what a beast of a machine. Most Harley-Davidsons we see on Australian roads are highway cruisers or city-centric Sportsters — and you’d be hard-pressed to find one at a race track other than in the carpark — so the notion of a Harley as a race bike is rare indeed. But it shouldn’t be. Harley’s XR750 and multiple variants of it have been winning trophies in America since the early 1970s, most famously in dirt track races but also on the tarmac. Google ‘Harley XRTT race bike’ and you’ll see what I mean. There’s no denying the big V-twin engine from Milwaukee is strong as an ox and more than capable of producing (and coping with) big horsepower, a fact that has given rise to a veritable industry of go-fast goodies that transform big Hogs to fast Hogs. We can see more than a touch of the XRTT in the tail end of this bike of John’s, with both the shape and the distinctive black-and-red styling giving a nod to H-D’s greatest speed-chapter in history. John’s photos suggest he’s created a marvellous machine here, with quality components and slick workmanship. We’d love to take it for a long fast ride!

1951 Royal Enfield 500 outfit – $23,000


SELLER SAYS: 1951 Royal Enfield 500 Twin for sale. I dragged this bike home around 1970 and it sat in boxes until about 2015 and was completely rebuilt to an amazing show piece, with a Dustings sidecar.  The sub-frame for that alone was $5000 and was fitted as part of my boyhood dream. However it is a bit under-powered and with the sidecar is best as a show bike. It runs beautiful and only 1 k on the clock. I do have the original clockwork speedometer and it was reconditioned and it is a collectors item in itself. I have heard over $1000 I have never seen another 500 twin and it seems to be a very rare bike. A very beautiful bike. I have just had heart surgery and it breaks my heart to sell her but I hope she finds a great new home that will appreciate her rare beauty. See more photos here.

1984 BMW R65 – $13,749 $9,499 SOLD


SELLER SAYS: This 11/1984 compliance BMW R65 classic bike is just a two owner, for the most part restored gem with only 77,645km on the clock. Restoration includes fork and brake master cylinder rebuilds together with brake and fuel line, battery and spark plug replacements. Oils all changed. Test run with engine tuned, starting and running sweetly. Rare for an R65, the bike boasts a BMW GS model style Paris-Dakar long range fuel tank fitted from the showroom. Also featuring a Krauser pannier set together with top box addition and the added comfort of a lamb’s wool seat cover delivering this bike as all set for overnight touring. Features original Staintune exhaust system. Will be sold with a BMW original windscreen and cylinder-head-saving crash bar, both currently unfitted now. The bike was last registered in Victoria, Australia. It is not currently registered. See more photos and a video here. Contact Murray on 0417 xxx xxx SOLD (Melbourne, Vic.)

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: If ever there was a bike to prove that long-distance competence did not need a big engine or big road footprint, it was BMW’s highly regarded R65. Blessed with the same frame but shorter swingarm and different front-end geometry — and thereby a shorter wheelbase — than its big brothers, the R65 delivered a marvellous mid-size solution for folks who either didn’t want or didn’t need a large motorcycle. And yet it was still perfectly capable of carrying a pillion and plenty of luggage, and in the case of Murray’s bike, plenty of fuel as well. The smaller dimensions of the R65 won favour among less-large riders (aren’t we polite?) but also to those who preferred something a bit more nimble and fun in the corners and on B-grade roads. This bike of Murray’s presents very well indeed, and those 77-odd thousand kays are remarkably low for a near 40-year-old open road bike — and barely run-in for a boxer-engined Beemer. See more photos and a video here.

1956 Triumph Speed Twin – $14,500  $12,500 ono


SELLER SAYS: For sale 1956 Triumph Speed Twin 500cc. Full West Australian registration. All serious offers considered. Contact John on 0429 233 457 (Greenough, WA)

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS:  Motorcycle history has a smattering of bikes that genuinely changed the course of bike design – and Triumph’s Speed Twin is one of them. Created by Edward Turner, probably the most influential individual in Triumph’s long history, the Speed Twin single-handedly (or perhaps that should be twin-conrodly) redirected mainstream bikes from single cylinders to twins; paving the way for even more cylinders, bigger capacities and ultimately more speed in the decades that followed. When it was unveiled in 1937 it was the top of the Triumph range and probably the most desirable mass-produced motorcycle that money could buy. As the years passed, it was overtaken (figuratively and literally) by various other models, including Triumph’s own Tiger and Bonneville, but it remained a big seller and was hugely important to Triumph’s reputation and its bottom line. This bike of John’s looks like a lovely example of one of history’s most influential bikes. Learn more here.

1951 AJS Model 18S with Tilbrook sidecar – $24,000


SELLER SAYS: This superb outfit is offered for a reluctant, age-related, sale. The sidecar is an Adelaide-manufactured Tilbrook number 44. It was factory fitted to a 1951 AJS / Matchless 500 cc single in 1951. I have not restored this unit. What you see in the photos is basically how it looked when I received it. I have maintained and repaired this unit with highest quality parts available. You won’t be disappointed. See more photos here. Contact Ron by email at (Hamilton, Victoria, Australia). 

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: What a classy piece of kit. This would have been top shelf stuff in 1951, at which stage AJS had recently added rear-suspension to its much loved Model 18 to create the 18S, and Australian motorcycle identity Rex Tilbrook was flat out manufacturing accessories, sidecars and complete motorcycles from his factory in Adelaide. The early ’50s were arguably the glory days for big British singles, with the AJS Model 18 and its twin sister Matchless G80 at the top of the pile — simple, reliable and well-made bikes, built for daily use, long life and DIY maintenance. They were also designed with an eye on sidecar attachments, many units being a family’s one and only means of transport. And while Rex Tilbrook’s accessories and motorcycles were highly regarded, it was his sidecars that underpinned his business and ensured his name would still be often used among vintage motorcycle people 70-odd years later. Tilbrook designed and manufactured his sidecars from the ground-up, and they were considered among the best that money could buy, anywhere in the world. Little wonder they are still highly sought after today.  Learn more about the AJS 18S here, read about the extraordinary man behind Tilbrook sidecars here, and see a walk-around video of Ron’s wonderful outfit here.

1999 Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa – $17,500


SELLER SAYS: 1999 Suzuki Hayabusa for sale. My Silver/Copper Hayabusa is in stock, original condition, and unmolested since new. I’m downsizing my motorcycle collection and regretfully looking at selling my prized Busa. I’m getting too old to ride the beast and rarely get out on it these days. The last time I got a rear puncture so I’ve fitted new tyre, chain and sprocket while I had it apart. Also changed the oil, fluids and fitted new Yuasa battery. This is true collector bike for the person who wants a stock, unrestricted original Hayabusa. I’m not desperate to sell but would like to see it go to another collector who values these original models and can see them quickly gaining in value. Sorry, no test pilots or low ballers but genuine inquiries appreciated. Contact Joe by email at (Midland, Perth WA).

1981 Maico 490 Mega 2 – $20,000 $14,000


SELLER SAYS: 1981 Maico 490 Mega 2 for sale. Last of the  twin-shocks. This bike was restored around 2006 and included an engine rebuild, new plastics, seat re-upholstered, rebuilt wheels, tyres, frame repainted and much more. The bike was only test ridden up the street and back and put in the shed under a tarp. The bike was recently started but not ridden. The frame and engine numbers are correct and there appears to be no damage apart from the ‘used’ Akront rims. Contact Greg on 0408 656 220. (Wauchope, mid-north coast NSW)
EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: I admit it. I’m having little heart flutters at the thought of someone taking this bike out onto a muddy motocross track and treating it like, well, like a motocross bike. Yes, yes, I know I know I know. It is a motocross bike. But the Mega 2 490 Maico isn’t just a motocross bike. It’s the greatest motocross bike of all time. The greatest dirt bike of all time. One of the greatest motorcycles of all time. It marks a time in history when long-travel twin shocks, right-side-up forks, kickstarters, Magura controls and very big very fast two stroke engines were kings of the hill, and just a nanosecond before all those things just plain stopped. It also marks the greatest moment for one of motorcycle history’s greatest brands, because shortly after releasing this glorious machine it all went to poo for Maico and the company collapsed in a heap. We listed one of these for sale recently with a $20k asking price and it disappeared very quickly. That one was a functioning race bike with appropriate modifications, while this one looks mostly unmolested and destined for a man cave, games room, or climate-controlled private collection (parked alongside a Brough Superior, we suggest). Or maybe a muddy motocross track, if you really must … See more photos here.

1976 Honda TL125 – $6,500


SELLER SAYS: Completely restored 1976 Honda TL125 for sale. Rebuilt motor, Ikon shocks, new lithium battery fitted discreetly under the seat. New upholstery, bars, lights, blinkers. Sammy Miller high top exhaust and Sammy Miller guards. This bike is one of a pair that have consecutive numbers (see below). I’m hoping a collector will buy them both and keep them together. Contact Nigel on 0467 879 083 (Millthorpe, NSW)

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: In the world history of trials, there is one name that stands out like a giant among men — Northern Irishman Sammy Miller was a very competent road racer before turning his skills to observed trials where he went on to win eleven British championships. Miller’s early days had him aboard an Ariel, but his skills and reputation saw him recruited by Bultaco (to help the Spanish firm build the wonderful Sherpa T), and then Honda to spearhead it’s TL range — and effectively to champion the spread of the sport across the world. And it worked a treat. Sammy played a hands-on role in the development of Honda’s trials bikes and the sport spread like wildfire. With Sammy out front, Honda created an ever-increasing market to sell its TL125 and TL250. Nigel tells us this wonderful pair of 125s (above and below) have been together since they came out of the factory, with consecutive numbers supporting the tale. Learn more about the TL story here.

1976 Honda TL125 – $5,500


SELLER SAYS: This is my second Honda TL125 for sale, consecutive numbers from the factory. I would like to sell both bikes to a collector who would keep them together.

1975 Bultaco Pursang 250 Mk8 – $7,500 neg.


SELLER SAYS: 1975 Bultaco 250 Pursang Mk8 for sale. Engine has been rebuilt by Peter at Bultaco Aus, full top and bottom end rebuild, fully rebuilt crank, new mains, seals, Wiseco piston, gaskets etc.  Some gears needed to be undercut so this was done as well, no expense was spared.

New chain and tyres. New seat cover. New cables. Exhaust has had some repairs as most have, but is in good shape and looks good. Frame is in excellent condition as are the wheels and forks. Perfect to ride as it is, or paint the tank, plates and guards to original for a great original looking Pursang. Was going to be used at classic bike meetings, but circumstances have changed so it needs to be sold. Contact Paul on 0418 482 282 (Goulburn, NSW)

1989 Suzuki GSXR 750 – $15,000  $12,950


SELLER SAYS: 1989 Suzuki GSXR 750 for sale. Long stroke engine, just serviced with a new carby kit, has new tyres and battery. I am not sure how many of these are still getting around but there seems to be fewer each year. There are the usual paint scratches, chips and clear coat deterioration that you would expect on a 33 year old bike but still presents reasonably well. Great bike that performs very, very, well; fun to ride or collect. It comes with a full set of spare plastics, minus clear screen. It also has a complete original exhaust system. These parts are in average to below average condition and come with the bike for anyone that wants the original item. More photos here. Contact Tom at   (Bordertown, SA)

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: Motorcycle history has many ‘hero’ models; bikes that changed the marketplace and set their competitors on the run to catch up. In the sports bike sector, where competition is most fierce, there are probably more heroes than anywhere else — and no list of sport bike heroes would be complete without the Suzuki GSXR750. When it was first unveiled in 1985, the Gixxer was a revelation. It really was a street-legal track bike, with a 100hp engine and a featherweight of just 179kg. Those were startling numbers back in the day, and set the tone for a model run that is only now coming to an end. The ’85 model was king of the hill at the time and remained virtually unchanged until 1988 when the bike had a major revision. That makes this bike of Tom’s a second-generation model, boasting the long-stroke engine, stronger frame and beefed-up brakes. The second generation kept the opposition at bay, and it wasn’t really until Honda released the first Fireblade in 1992 that Suzuki really surrendered the sports bike crown held so firmly by the GSXR. Learn more about the Gixxer 750 story here, and see more photos of Tom’s bike here.

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: Perhaps the most important motorcycle in history, Honda’s CB750 was simply the best motorcycle ever made when it arrived to a response of shock and awe from motorcyclists — and sheer horror from other manufacturers. The four-cylinder overhead cam engine, front disc brake, electric start and 120mph top speed were all headline acts, but it was Honda’s build quality (giving reliability and no oil leaks) and the engine’s smoothness that really leap-frogged the Honda over every other bike out there and catapulted the Japanese motorcycle industry into global domination. Honda originally planned to build 1,500 CB750s in the model’s first year but quickly changed the target — initially to 1,500 per month and then to 3,000 per month — when the market went crazy for them. Ultimately, Honda made more than 53,000 of the K0 in the model’s year-long run and about 400,000 CB750s in the ten-year run of the entire K-series. This bike of Jonathan’s is a K0, which means it’s from that first year of manufacture, and it looks like a beaut. (Regular readers will know we listed another K0 a couple of weeks ago for $35k, and it sold in one day.) See more photos and some links to more reading here.

2010 Moto Guzzi Bellagio 940 – $14,500


SELLER SAYS: Satin black Bellagio with carbon fibre slip-ons, genuine Guzzi saddlebags, genuine screen, cruise control, ECU tuning by Thunderbikes, and new tyres 100km ago. See more photos here. Contact Craig on 0481 261 251 (Rivervale, Perth WA).

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: If you search the internet for reviews on Moto Guzzi’s funky Bellagio, you’ll find a bunch of moto journalists suggesting the Italian machine is a market competitor to America’s Harley-Davidson Sportster. Ahhh … we don’t think so. Yes, both bikes are functional and stylish city-centric machines with genuine all-rounder credentials, both are V-twins, and both are built somewhere that’s not Japan. But we just can’t imagine a Harley rider buying a Guzzi, or a Guzzi rider buying a Harley. Pitching the Bellagio against the Sportster is like pitching one bottle of 2010 Penfolds Grange against 50 cartons of Fosters Lager. The budget’s the same and both are grog, but that’s about it! Seriously though, the Bellagio is somewhere between a cruiser and a muscle bike, boasting top shelf kit like Marzocchi suspension and Brembo brakes, a mostly upright riding position but excellent cornering and handling, and a 75hp motor that’s not sports bike-quick but is capable of some pretty entertaining hustle around the twisties. This bike of Craig’s looks like a great example of a very classy piece of Italian kit. See more photos here.

  1. I read Editor Terlick’s comments on the Triumph Trident with great trepidation. As I read of the amazing bike faster and better handing than the jap crap (some of which was true), I was also reminded of an unreliable mechanical disaster. Not happy just to jimmy together a multi part vertically split crankcase, Triumph chose to repeat experimental mistakes made with the top ends of the 500 twins way back when. I rebuilt more Trident top ends than I care to remember mostly with clapped out valve stems and guides at appallingly low mileages (8000 miles). They were also prone to wearing out very expensive camshafts almost as quick as tyres. Add to that the complexity attached to using a dry clutch and readers will easily understand why the score became CB750 10 Trident Nil . The weavy handling Honda just kept going and going while the Trident was waiting for it’s n’th top end or camshafts. I sold my CB750 after many years and untold miles because I had it so long I was bored with it.

    1. I agree with your views on reliability of the Triumphs but had mates with fours that had plenty of problems too. Theres a book written by Bert Hopwood a Triumph designer called “what happened to the british motorcycle industry” he tells of plans for 1200 inline fours and other bikes to compete with the Japanese but the heads at Triumph were stuck in a rut and refused to go away from their ageing designs

  2. Couldn’t help but giggle when I saw the ’93 FireBlade that sold recently. Who ever painted it applied the ’92 livery.🤦

  3. Also like to ask site owner if they could put a ‘box’ up, where you could write in your choice of bike you are looking for. It would make it simpler to find these then. If there is one I can’t see it. 👍

    1. Thanks Bob. We can’t create a search box as such, but an old-fashioned ‘Ctrl F’ (as you would use to search a Word document) is a functional alternative. Cheers.

  4. Great bikes for sale and sold here, Just started looking, did not even no about this site all this time. The prices are spot on, (mostly) as well. I love Z1’s and 900ss dukes the bestest! 🏍

  5. For sellers, it is a pretty clumsy affair having to setup or change an advertisement by email. It would be much easier to create and manage an advertisement directly if the site provided some upload and edit tools.
    Most buyers would like to see more than one photo, I’m sure.

  6. Used to use your site all the time. Now it’s so hard to navigate even trying to find bikes for sale on opening your page, I’ve just about given up! Go back to an easier navigation!

    1. Hi Mark. Thanks for your comments. We’ve not changed our navigation for ages. What’s causing you grief?

  7. Thanks for the opportunity to have both my Darmah SD900 (sold) and my Yamaha XS2 650 1972 on your site. Great place, great bikes and yes Perth to Bathurst cost $1300 last year. Alan.

  8. There are a lot of fantastic machines from an almost forgotten era here. Jeez.. Some prices are just like.. Do you really want to sell this bike? Coz the price is telling me you don’t.
    One example is the Honda gl1000 that has been “customed”… $20k??? I’ve got 4 wings…. And mates with immaculate ones.. Original… And one of them consistently wins shows… $15k at best for a pristine K0 example. And I appreciate just how much coin goes into these unique machines… But apologies here…. That ain’t worth $20k!!! Too many zeros on the tag.

  9. I can’t believe the prices people are asking for these bikes { tellem there dreaming } or are they accepting lower price.

    1. Hey, that’s the price people are asking and that’s their call, and sometimes people out there looking just haven’t got enough cash – simple as that. Instead of criticising just go out and look out there in the market and don’t compare a restored immaculate bike for a shed find original rat. You may have never done a restoration and realised how much it costs these days compared to even 10 years ago. Cheers.

  10. Fantastic site. Lovely to see the old classics are still alive and looking good. Would recommend this to anyone. Peter is very helpful with everything you need to get your ad up. Thanks heaps mate.

  11. I thoroughly enjoyed looking your site but boy those prices are out of my park. I hope the sellers get the dollars they are asking, but I cant see that GT850 Guzzi hitting $19.500. Still, good luck.

  12. Nice to look at the bikes for sale, but how do people come up with their ridiculous prices 19,500 for an old v max. If all the old bikes were reduced 50% to what they are really worth in the real world we would see more on the road and their owners would not be so scared about riding them.

  13. I brought my first bike after a forty year gap from riding,750GT 1976. Found it on this great site. Now looking for number two. Love this site, thank you to all concerned for letting us have the pleasure.

  14. Geez, those round cased Dukes are overpriced. Won’t be bought for riding anymore. Museum pieces now.

  15. Why do so many people think that old British s–tboxes are worth an arm and a leg just because they’re old? Come back to Earth people. Old brit singles can barely get out of their own way and Lucas’s wasn’t called ” The Prince of Darkness” for no good reason let alone having leakey old Amals above high voltage magnetos. I’ve been the victim of that particularly lethal combination so I know what I’m talking about.

    1. I too have been on the rough end of the leaky Anal carb over sparky magneto pineapple. All compounded by a particularly nasty insurance company attempting to intimidate a young bloke still in shock sometime later into paying for a fire damaged service station which didn’t even have a fire extinguisher. Moral of the story – fix the leaky Anal and put an air filter on it. But I digress.
      When push comes to shove, any old pusbox is worth what the market will pay for it. Who says a very ordinary early 70’s V8 Falcon whose terminal velocity far outweighed its safety is worth hundreds of thousands? Who says a 70’s bevel Ducrappi is worth 30-50 grand? etc etc

      1. My apologies. Did I say 30-50 grand. I was thinking of clapped out 750GT’s. By current advertisements I should have said 130-150 grand for a tarted up Sport or SS.

  16. Can I swap my first born’s first born for the CB1100R? Because after 40 years, I still won’t be able to afford one.

  17. Good Morning Peter,
    Just a thank you for the way my BMW was advertised, very good AD, excellent comments. I had 3 keen buyers the day after the ad was first displayed, one of whom bought the machine. Thanks again,
    Mark Henson

  18. My 1975 BMW R90/6 was posted for sale on The Bike Shed Times website on Tuesday 1st October, and on their Facebook page the following Saturday. Four hours after the Facebook post I had a text query from a chap in Victoria (I’m in Perth). By that evening the bike was sold, for very close to my asking price. It was picked up a few days later, and gone! Have to say it’s left quite a hole in my shed – I’d owned it for 42 years. With several texts and calls from the new owner however I’m pretty sure it’s gone to a good home. Very impressive website and service, Peter. The Bike Shed Times is the go-to site for buying and selling proper bikes. Thanks, David.

  19. Thanks Peter. Sold my bike, would recommend to anyone selling a special or rare bike. The Bike Shed Times works; it connects people who are interested in buying, not time wasters. Cheers, Neil

  20. Best bike sales website I have seen. Keep up the good work. Nice to see the motor cycle trade finally arriving in the 21 century.

  21. Re: Ducati sidecar outfit.
    DJP Sidecars were built originally in Victoria, I had the first extended one, #4, from 1972. I had to travel down to Drouin, I think, to have the sidecar fitted.

  22. With an abundance of “scrambler” and “enduro” road/trail bikes on sale, were can you actualy ride them off road in WA?

    1. Good question, Paul. The short answer comes in two parts; either join a club, or don’t. A club will give you access to organised events (mostly competitive, but not necessarily expert). Or you can do your own thing on public tracks and trails if your bike is road-licensed, on private property if it isn’t, or at one of WA’s designated off-road areas if your bike is registered for off-road use.

  23. F*^%ing fantastic site guys. Love the write ups, the big clear pics and the easy roll down selection. Well done, Im now a regular. Ebay can go find a gumtree

    Thanks, enjoying the ride

  24. I’m a bike nut and love all types of bikes. This site is pure candy store for me. I can sell some and then add to the growing mad collection. It’s great this site exists. It will be hard to stop myself indulging. Cheers, Anthony.

  25. Peter does an excellent job of presenting these machines for sale. We restore old Triumphs to their former glory as a hobby and then pass them on to new owners, we think of it as saving these otherwise neglected classics. I assure you it is not for any financial gain but merely hearing and smelling them when they are running. Keep up the good work Peter — your site has assisted us with selling two bikes now, and your knowledge and input is greatly appreciated.

  26. Lots of dream machines in those ads. Pity they are diagonally opposite me in this vast land. Maybe time to look up shipping costs.

    1. Shipping bikes across the country is quite popular at the moment Stan, with most of the traffic seemingly from West to East! I believe there are reputable carriers out there who do Perth-Sydney around the $1,000 mark. Cheers.

  27. Some really nice old Triumphs in your line-up. Very impressed with the photos. I am sitting here with itchy fingers. I want all of them!

  28. Glad I found this site — wonderful memories. Makes me want to sell the GS and hook into a classic.

  29. A great look at some lovely classics and sports bikes! with very interesting comments. Nice one.

  30. Hi Peter, thanks for the photo of my 450 R/T (TS) at York. Great idea the BST. Will spread the word. I share your passion for Ducatis and Guzzis. Hope to see you again.

    1. All the Gold Flashes had gold paint, if I recall? Great bikes! I’d be happy to have yours on Bikes For Sale Tony!
