2016 Aprilia 1200 Caponord Rally –
SELLER SAYS: Selling my 2016 Aprilia 1200 Caponord Rally. It is in near-new condition. Nothing to do but ride. Just had major service including valves. Comes with factory top box and side panniers, factory Arrow pipe, Oberon clutch slave, stock screen included (cut-down one on the bike), two keys, new tyres, books and battery. This is my fifth Aprilia. (I love their bikes!) Extremely comfortable, powerful and stunning to look at. Tail bag is not included. Bike still has balance of two-year new bike warranty. It was sold new 09/04/2022. The Caponord is the most comfortable bike I have ridden. Set the suspension to fully automatic and it reads conditions and adjusts on the fly. Glides over our Australian back roads with ease. Google reviews and you will see very positive reports. Mature rider that needs to listen to his body and downsize. $16,500 Located in Perth, West Australia. Can help with transport interstate. Leave a message if I don’t pick up. (Shift worker.) Contact Ross on 0418 xxx xxx SOLD for $15.5k (Perth, WA)
EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: When you think of big adventure bikes, there’s a fair bet that the Aprilia 1200 Caponord Rally is not the first machine that springs to mind, right? It’s also not a bike you’re likely to bump into, down at the local cafe. But the big Italian V-twin is a very impressive piece of kit with some definite headlines. Ross’ reference to comfort is borne out by road test reports, with a well-designed seat and some brilliant technology delivering extraordinary bum-comfort. The fully-auto suspension doesn’t need to be told whether you’re carrying a passenger, carrying a little or a lot of luggage, or even cruising or fanging it. It … just … knows. Spooky hey? It adjusts damping to suit and, by all reports, does it brilliantly. Matched with Aprilia’s long history building off-road bikes and more recent history with MotoGP, it’s no surprise these machines are getting strong thumbs-up reports from owners and moto-journos alike. This bike looks like it’s in A1 shape and ready to go. Great stuff.

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: As the brave new world of electric motorcycles rolls inexorably toward us, many a motorcycle ponderer is pondering what the future holds for high-end sports bikes and for the world of collectible petrol-powered motorbikes. I’m one of those ponderers and, like all of the others, don’t have a clue what’s going to happen. But my gut feeling goes like this: Prices for everyday run-of-the-mill petrol bikes will fall rapidly. Prices for exotic desirable bikes will hold. Prices for already-collectible bikes – and especially limited edition bikes – will rise faster than ever. I know it’s hard to think of a bike as modern as this wonderful 1198SP as a collectible. It is, after all, still near its prime: a blindingly fast, superb handling piece of contemporary racetrack perfection that (for reasons I don’t actually understand but aren’t about to argue with) you’re allowed to ride on the road. The ‘SP’ bit in the bike’s name makes it a rare beast. The extras – electronic quickshifter, Ohlins suspension, slipper clutch, and bigger fuel tank – make the bike a smidgen lighter and presumably a smidgen faster around a race track in expert hands. But they make the bike a lot more collectible. I guess it would be reasonable for a young go-fast guy to buy this bike and go fast on it. But I kinda hope it goes to a bike lover who cherishes its specialness and it’s L-twin engine, and makes sure it’s still being ridden (maybe on mung-bean fuel) in 50 years time.
1975 Moto Guzzi 750 S3 – $37,500
SELLER SAYS: 1975 Moto Guzzi 750 S3. One of 14 to be imported into Australia. Matching frame/engine numbers.

1984 BMW R65 LS – $6,400
SELLER SAYS: Legendary Hans Muth design. All original, nicely maintained, licensed and running beautifully. This bike is a lot of fun to ride, with a shorter stroke enjoying revs, and a lighter frame than other BMWs of the time. I’ve had the bike for a few years, but hardly ridden it (arthritis). I bought it off a guy who had the same story as me! He bought it off an Albany owner who had kept the bike for most of its life. Original rider’s handbook, tool roll, pump. Workshop manual. New battery. Contact Thomas on 0434 177 801 (Margaret River, WA)
1930 BSA Sloper 350cc –

1972 Moto Guzzi Eldorado 850 – $28,000
SELLER SAYS: This bike is totally restored and I have all the receipts to prove it! Contact Lex on 0419 907 592 (Perth, WA)
EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: In 1972, respected American bike magazine Cycle had this to say about the Moto Guzzi Eldorado: “It’s a bike for crossing continents, not states. It’s a bike that can carry 200lb of gear for camping and a passenger at the same time. And, it’s a bike that can eat up 300-mile sections of expressway and leave the rider free from fatigue.” A couple of years earlier, Moto Guzzi sold two V700s to the Los Angeles Police Department for $1 each. And around the same time, Guzzi paid for an LAPD officer to fly to Italy and test ride its bikes. These were audacious, aggressive marketing tactics by a relatively small, foreign motorcycle manufacturer (and one in a not-great financial situation, apparently) — daring to take on Harley-Davidson, perhaps the biggest and most successful motorcycle manufacturer on the planet. And it worked. Truth be told, Harley’s bikes of the early 1970s were not great. Quality control was dodgy, and there was an arrogance at H-D HQ that Americans in general and American police departments in particular, wouldn’t dare buy foreign motorcycles. But they did. The police bought thousands of Guzzis in the early ’70s, and Biker Buddy Average figured if they was good enough for the coppers then they was good enough for me too. A tourer version of the Eldorado was badged the California and it went on to be one of the most respected and successful highway bikes of all time. This stunning bike of Lex’s looks like a glorious example and would make a great regular ride or pampered collectible.
1974/2023 Norton Commando –
INTERNATIONAL SALE – Canada
SELLER SAYS: This is a rare Steve Maney-engined road racer. All-new build, perfect for vintage road racing, it’s currently housed in a stock Commando frame but easily dismantled for shipping the components to house in a purpose-built race frame. I purchased the bike from a widow who’s husband was building it into a no-expense-spared race bike before he passed away, with it being about 75% completed and not to the point of running. I have done just enough to get it to run. The list of invoices I have for parts total $CDN31,547 without any labour costs. I’m hoping to recoup $CDN20k (about $AUD23k or $US15k). The bike has as follows: The stock Norton frame. Steve Maney cases. 89mm stroke balanced light crank. Aluminum cylinders, oil block and I think the exhaust. Gapless rings. Carillo rods, pistons, valves and JS2 cam (all from JS Motorsports). Polished lightened rockers. Beehive springs. New CR carbs. S/S oil lines. Fullauto cylinder head. TTi 5-speed magnesium gearbox. Y38A replica Ceriani forks with magnesium yokes and Woodcraft clip-ons. T260 Maxton shocks. Ducati front hub. Husky magnesium rear hub. Contact Kevin by email on firstname.lastname@example.org (Chilliwack British Columbia, Canada)
EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: If you’ve ever yearned for a high-end vintage British race bike, here’s an opportunity to fast-track your dream and save yourself a bunch of time and money. Norton’s 850 Commando effectively marked the final and high-water mark of the British parallel twin. And while history might remember the last Commando (apart from the new ones of course) with a tear in its eye, the bike is also rightly remembered as a wonderful machine with excellent handling and a glorious engine. Today, that big 850 twin motor looks downright prehistoric and, perhaps as a result of that, just marvellous. This bike of Kevin’s is something else again, of course. A Steve Marney-built motor fitted with top-shelf kit and with an eye on the race track, it’s sure to perform like no old Commando you or I have ever laid eyes on. For the uninitiated, Steve Maney is the go-to guy for making Commandos go fast. He operates out of a workshop in Yorkshire, UK, and his motors win vintage road races all over the planet. We found an excellent about Steve Marney, you can read it here.
1979 Moto Guzzi LeMans replica –
SELLER SAYS: Right up front, this is a Moto Guzzi LeMans replica. Looking for a unique and distinctive sounding motorcycle? This Moto Guzzi started its life as a 1979 T3.

I have owned this bike since June 2018, and the previous owner rode it from 1984. Contact Lance on 0417 992 935 (Perth, WA).
1975 Triumph Trident T150 –
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 email@example.com SOLD (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 last 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.

1985 Suzuki RG500 – $27,500 neg.
SELLER SAYS: This is a fully functional running original bike. Restore it, ride it or put it in the lounge room! Australian delivered. Make an offer. Contact Louis on 0435 004 551 (Enfield, SA)
SELLER SAYS: This gorgeous bike is an early 1972 Ducati 750GT that was beautifully restored two years ago by a well known Ducati expert in Canada. The engine (#750608) and frame (#750446) have been together since new, and the bike has been ridden less than 1500km since then. The bike has the following specs; Marzocchi leading axle front end, Marzocchi rear shocks, Caswell sealed fibreglass gas tank, rare, original Aprilia headlight, Scarab master cylinder, Borrani alloy rims, brand new (NOS) Conti exhaust, Dynatek ignition, Smiths Ducati instruments, brand new (NOS) 32 PHF Dellorto carbs, Tommaselli Daytona 2C throttle. Included are the original Amal carbs, manifolds, throttle and cables, and the original contact breaker points. The bike is located near Vancouver, Canada. The price of $38,000AUD includes prepping, crating and shipping from the Port of Vancouver to your nearest port. Contact Norm by email at firstname.lastname@example.org (Vancouver, Canada).
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.

1975 BMW R90/6 – $11,500

1981 Ducati 900SS – $62,500
SELLER SAYS: 1981 Ducati 900SS for sale. My bike is up for sale. This was a hard decision.

2005 Yamaha MT-01 – $12,000
SELLER SAYS: A very tidy 2 owner bike in excellent condition. I have all the service books, red key & spare, service DVD, sales brochure, genuine Yamaha MT-01 concept book. Service receipts. Some spare oil filters, front sprockets, indicators etc. It has a quick release pack rack & lower rear bar, quick release tank bag mount and been fitted with a centre stand, phone & GPS charger which is great for touring. Recent service and tyre replacement. Bike presents and rides very well with no performance modifications. This is my 2nd MT-01 but it’s time to down size to a lower, lighter bike. Happy to answer questions & work with interstate buyer. Contact Andrew on 0450 526 713 or email email@example.com (Geraldton, WA).
EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: You want muscle? We got muscle. While the raw numbers of 90 horsepower and 150 Newtons don’t sound big today, Yamaha’s MT-01 was born to be a quarter-mile hotrod. And it was, but also fabulously found its niche as a town growler and highway cruiser. In 2008, an MT-01 scorched down the quarter mile at the Western Sydney International Dragway in 11.77 seconds at 113.57mph (182.77kmh), setting a new Aussie record for a twin-cylinder motorcycle. I suspect no-one was surprised. It was really a Japanese version of Triumph’s modern Rocket and Ducati’s Diavel, years before either of those bikes had been conceived. Perhaps the big Yamaha, with a motor nicked and pumped from the big XV1700 tourer, inspired the others. The bike only ran from 2005 – 2012, making early ones surprisingly rare in top condition, like this lovely bike of Andrew’s appears to be. See more pics here.
1975 Kawasaki 900 Z1B – $35,000
SELLER SAYS: 1975 Kawasaki Z1B 900 for sale. Excellent, fully restored bike, no expense spared on this beauty. Everything has been done for you; it’s all ready to take you anywhere you like and in style. Any questions feel free to ask. Contact Greg on 0437 789 298 (Sydney, NSW)
2018 Norton Commando 961 Sports – $25,000
SELLER SAYS: Excellent condition Norton Commando 961 Sports for sale. Comes with R+G Sliders, Quadlock for mobile phone, wired to the ignition. As this bike has sports exhaust fitted & non genuine mirrors, the original exhaust system & mirrors are included in the sale. Contact Michael on 0417 231 232 (Willetton, Perth WA).
1980 Yamaha XS1100 Midnight Special – $16,000
SELLER SAYS: 1980 model (stamped 12/79) Yamaha XS1100 Midnight Special. What a very comfortable bike to ride and not exactly short on a bit of horsepower either. This bike has had a good mechanical going over from 3x brake caliper piston/seal kits & pads, stem head bearings & seals, carb intake rubbers & carb kits, air & oil filters, tank cleaned & lined, valve clearance done & new cam chain fitted. Lots of old rubbers replaced, new battery, shaft drive stripped, cleaned & inspected. New uni joint, boot, seals & bearing etc repacked & re-oiled. New rear shocks (I have the originals). New tyre plus much more. All the gold items were stripped, painted and clear coated. Rode this bike around Tasmania & the Great Ocean Road to South Australia in March 2023. Best experience ever. Have spares to go with it. This is ready-to-ride and licensed in WA. Bike is currently on club licence and on display at a local museum. Happy to talk price and help with shipping for interstate buyer. Contact Andrew on 0450 526 713 or email firstname.lastname@example.org (Geraldton, WA).
EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: What a great looking bike. When Yamaha unveiled the base-model XS1100 in 1978, it landed to rave reviews. As well as being Yamaha’s first four-cylinder four-stroke (no, I didn’t know that either), the XS-Eleven combined a monster of motor with compliant highway-friendly suspension, creating a bike that was a superstar at the local dragstrip and when chewing up open-road miles on the highway. Bike journos of the day said race-speed cornering was a bit sketchy, but hey — the bike still racked up plenty of race track success including glory at the Castrol Six Hour at Amaroo Park here in Australia. Of course, the unmistakeable black-and-gold Midnight Special variant like this one of Andrew’s wasn’t meant for the race track — it was a “factory custom”, as was the fashion of the day, designed to look as cool as a cucumber down at the cafe and still go like the clappers … or cruise the Great Ocean Road (with a black open face helmet and Bolle sunnies, I hope.) Very nice indeed.
1981 Yamaha XS1100 – $6,500
SELLER SAYS: 1981 Yamaha XS1100. New Mikuni flat-slide carbs with filter pods, (original air box and carbs available). New handlebar control switches included but not yet fitted. Spare set of forks. New tyres. Bikini fairing included but not currently fitted. Licensed for 3 months. Also have a couple of spare motors and a frame for sale if required. Bought to tinker with in retirement but health issues have scuttled that plan. Contact John on 0477 705 997 (Perth, WA)
1960 Matchless G80 TCS Typhoon 600 – $25,500
SELLER SAYS: Matchless produced around 200 G80 TCS Typhoons from 1960 to 1961. At 600cc this was the largest and probably most powerful scrambler sold by AMC and most went to the USA for desert racing. From 1960 the CS came with both a Lucas competition magneto and alternator in the alloy chaincase. This bike has the original air filter canister, tool holder under the carburettor and the factory plug-in wiring to the headlight. Having the optional 389 Amal Monobloc carburettor fitted, the bike is an easy starter. The photos will give you an idea of the condition of the bike which has been restored but still has original equipment from 1960. Contact Bradley at email@example.com (Taringa, Qld.)
1985 Ducati MHR Mille – $74,000
SELLER SAYS: This is one for the collector. A 1985 model, it is one of the last MHRs and as quoted by Ian Falloon in his book The Complete Book of Ducati Motorcycles, – “arguably the finest bevel engine…the Mille incorporated many updates…..Relatively rare…..the Mille was the definitive development of the classic bevel twin”. As the second owner, I have owned this bike for more than 30 years and ridden it sparingly. Always garaged and meticulously maintained the bike has original mileage of 32,000km. Australian delivered, it is in original condition and registered with club plates. Crank case seal still intact and presented in fine condition. Runs beautifully. Electric start, refurbished rear shocks, Staintune exhaust (I still have the original Silentium exhaust but they have not been fitted to the bike). This is an honest bike, it is not an import and represents a fantastic opportunity to acquire a fine example of the highly sought-after last of the bevels. Contact David on 0411 262 669 (Biloga, NSW)
2001 Ducati 748R – $29,900 neg.
SELLER SAYS: 2001 Ducati 748R for sale. Yellow. 24,000km. This is number 750. Very clean and tidy bike in exceptional condition. Starts and runs great. Getting hard to find a great bike for the enthusiast or collector. Will not disappoint. Contact Brian on 0412 765 975 (Currumbin Valley, Qld.)
1980 Honda CBX1000 – $28,000
SELLER SAYS: Low mileage bike. Rare black A model with a duck-tail boot. Tank needs dent fixed and touch-up. Regretful sale. On permit, not transferable. No joy rides. Serious buyers only. Contact Dom on 0418 116 941 (Burwood, Victoria)
1995 Honda Goldwing Aspencade-
SELLER SAYS: Selling bike due to the wife no longer riding as pillion. Bike was purchased because it is a great touring bike and very comfortable for the pillion rider. Bike is on club permit so will be sold unregistered. Price is firm and I will get a RWC upon receiving a deposit. 80,000km. Contact 0409 xxx xxx SOLD (Victoria).
1975 Suzuki RE5 M – $19,000
SELLER SAYS: Delivered to Australia when new in 1975, this desirable, first year Suzuki RE5 ‘M’ remains in excellent original condition. Presented by only its third owner, this bike runs, rides and stops as it should. With only a little over 11,400km on the clock, this rotary-engined motorcycle was Suzuki’s first foray into the rotary market in the 1970’s. The venture proved to be a commercial failure making these motorcycles very collectible. With excellent paint, chrome work and all rubber fittings, this motorcycle would be an envious addition to any collection. Contact Carl on 0419 531 360 (Bendigo, Vic.)
EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: What a fascinating story is the story of the RE5. Rotary engines were the buzz of the automotive world in the early 1970s, and pretty much all the big manufacturers of cars and bikes wanted “a piece of the future”. The basic rotary design was simple, and it promised (and delivered) an incredibly smooth and admirably powerful payout. But when push came to shove, making the rotary work was difficult. Being so completely different to regular piston engines, they needed start-from-scratch production lines and dedicated tooling. They also needed complex carburation (five throttle cables!) and heavy-duty heat management. And they were thirsty. In the end, only Mazda made the engine work for cars and only Suzuki made it work for bikes. Well, nearly. Suzuki believed the rotary had a big future, and they spent a fortune to get it to production. But it didn’t sell. Despite the excitement, the RE5 just didn’t have enough benefits over its mainstream competitors to lure buyers. I’ve read one article saying the RE5 almost sent Suzuki broke, and another that reckoned Suzuki eventually loaded ships with unsold RE5s, containers full of parts and production-line tooling, and dumped the whole lot in the ocean off Japan. Both assertions are almost certainly nonsense. Fast forward almost 50 years, and the RE5 is a true collectible. They were a great bike – no doubt about it – and their rarity and uniqueness make good ones a rare find indeed. This bike of Carl’s looks like a wonderful example, with low mileage and high originality. Great stuff.
2014 Yamaha XVS650 V-Star –
SELLER SAYS: This one-of-a-kind LAMS-approved V-Star boasts less than 1000km on the engine. The impressive and priceless paint job to the tank, chassis and accessories gives it the name ‘The California’ and making it, from what I’ve seen, one of the most customised LAMS-approved V-twins on the market. Every inch of this bike has been meticulously customised for aesthetic appeal. The gold plated rim spokes, engine covers, clutch and brake pedals. The white-wall tyres, custom ape hangers, hand-stitched bobber seat, forward controls, pillion rack, rear fender the list goes on. The last bike to be sold from Nightcraft bobbers and personally still looked after by the mechanic. This bike is one to be appreciated. Recent roadworthy and rego till 06/02/24. Contact Haz on 0410 580 932 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org (Pimpama, Queensland).
EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: When it comes to motorcycle taste, there’s an endless spectrum. Some folks like ’em big, some small. Some like ’em fast, some slow. Some like ’em old-fashioned, some like ’em contemporary. And some folks like to leave bikes as they came from the factory, and some don’t. Haz – the seller of this head-turning Yamaha – is clearly one of those who don’t. Heavily customised from a frankly boring Yamaha XVS650, this bike is as much a work of art as it is a means of transport. Actually, I shouldn’t describe the mid-size V-Star as boring. They’re a great bike – small enough to be manageable by LAMS riders but big enough to look and feel like a ‘proper’ bike – and blessed with very competent performance and handling. Not to mention Yamaha build quality and reliability, of course. The workmanship from Nightcraft Bobbers appears first class, and the bling is eye-catching without being absurd. We reckon buyers for this one will love it at first glance, and spend a whole bunch of time keeping it spotless and putting it on show.

1950 Ariel Square Four – $CDN20,000
INTERNATIONAL SALE – Canada
SELLER SAYS: This bike spent many years on display in the Deeley museum in Vancouver British Columbia, Canada. It is previously from South Africa as evidenced by the tax disc and club badge. I acquired it to help me visually restore another one, but I couldn’t resist getting it to run and ride it, which only required fluids and a battery. It starts and runs easily and well. It has various oil leaks. Engine, frame, carb, distributor and gearbox are all dated 1950. Two years ago I installed a set of OTTO head gaskets and it should also have the tyres replaced as they are around 40 years old. It will require re-commissioning. Many more photos available on request. Offered for $CDN20,000 which includes shipping. The bike is located an hour away from Vancouver B.C. (More pics to come.) Contact Kevin by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (note the time difference here) on 0011-1-604-819-1201. (Vancouver, Canada)

Contact John on 0418 915 045 (Bayswater, Perth WA)
EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: You’ve got to love Italian bikes from the 1970s. While Japan was revolutionising the motorcycle industry with mass-production technology and processes that delivered smoothness and reliability at cut-throat prices, the Italians responded with bikes like the Ducati 750 Super Sport, the MV Agusta 750S and the Laverda SFC — virtually hand-built bikes that cared about nothing except style, handling and performance. They were expensive, finnicky, uncomfortable, completely impractical — and utterly beautiful. The SFC, and the other Latin lovelies of its era, used outdated engines and low-tech frames but blessed them with near perfect geometry and engineering to extract every last breath of power. This bike of John’s started life as an SF2, which was the slightly sensible Laverda 750 twin of the time. The SFC (the ‘C’ standing for Competition) was basically a track version of the same bike and not really suited to the road. But, motorcyclists being like we are, everyone really wanted the bright orange SFC! There’s a great article online about the SFC, and you can read ithere. We have found an SFC for sale in Australia, by the way. It has an asking price of $120k. And there’s one with an undisclosed asking price selling out of the USA — take a look here.

The bike starts first time on the LHS kick starter (no electric start) and after a short warm up settles into a nice smooth idle that won’t drop out at the lights.Once on the road it accelerates strong and smooth right through the rev range.

Contact Bruce on 0427 718 832 (Newcastle, NSW).

2005 MV Agusta F4 1000 Agostini Tribute – $60,000

The bike is not registered as I have never ridden it – the 982km on the clock were done by previous owner. It’s time for me to let it go to someone who will enjoy it as much as I have (without actually riding it). Contact Paul on 0407 856 976 (Perth, WA).
EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: Ask most bike enthusiasts who has won the most open-class world championships, and there’s a fair bet they’ll guess Valentino Rossi. And they’d be close – but they’d be wrong. With eight open class world titles (one more than Rossi) the gong actually goes to Giacomo Agostini. The earlier Italian superstar was virtually untouchable from the mid-60s to the mid-70s, and his bike of choice was MV Agusta. Agostini won seven 500cc titles in succession on an MV, plus seven 350cc titles and, wait for it, 10 titles at the Isle of Man. The guy was astounding. (He’s still kicking, too. Read more about him here.) The pairing of Agostini and MV was, without doubt, one of moto-history’s most successful, so it’s no surprise that the modern incarnation of MV Agusta has been perfectly willing to remind the world of those glory days on the race track. And to the company’s credit, they’ve not used his name flippantly. The F4 1000 (that 4 for the number of cylinders and 1000 for the engine capacity) is a case in point. Drop-dead gorgeous as only the Italians can do, the bike hit the market boasting superb sports bike credentials including massive power and superb handling. British bike website MC News described the base mode as “possibly one of the most desirable two-wheeled creations of all time”. So how desirable would be an Agostini Special incarnation, with less than 1000km on the clock? Well, if you can stump up $60k, this bike’s in your shed (or maybe behind glass in your billiard room), giving you what is certainly one of the most desirable bikes of the past 20 years, and one of the top few of all time.

1968 Norton Commando Fastback – $29,000
SELLER SAYS: Excellent condition. Ground-up restoration. 9,880 miles. Currently on Historic club rego. Contact Trevor on 02 9905 4755 or by email at email@example.com (Brookvale, Sydney NSW)
EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: When most people talk about motorcycle evolution from the late 1960s and early ’70s, the conversation tends to be dominated by talk of big bikes from Japan. And while that’s perfectly reasonable, it tends to mask one of the great success stories — the Norton Commando. At a time when Japanese bikes were sweeping the world — and smashing the British bike industry — the Commando stood as a beacon of British bravado. Norton sold more than 50,000 Commandos, despite some early problems with fragile frames and exploding engines, starting with the 750 Fastback. The ‘isolastic’ frame successfully delivered a big twin that didn’t vibrate itself to bits, and must have been a courageous decision given the popularity of the so-called ‘featherbed’ frame it replaced. This bike selling from Sydney is one of the very early Commandos, and most definitely one for a collector.
1949 BSA B31 – $9,000
SELLER SAYS: Excellent condition and runs well. Currently on Historic club rego. Contact Trevor on 02 9905 4755 or at firstname.lastname@example.org (Brookvale, Sydney NSW)
EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: It’s fair to say the two world wars were very good for the Birmingham Small Arms company. Created to build guns, BSA branched out into pushbikes and then motorcycles until, by the 1950s, it had grown to become the most successful motorcycle company — and one of the biggest companies of any kind — in the world. History tells us that, at its peak, BSA accounted for 25% of global motorcycle sales.The B31 was the first of BSA’s new models after WW2 and the first to boast telescopic front suspension. Its 350cc single-cylinder engine was good for 70mph and, while it was more of a daily rider than a performance bike, it was fast enough to keep buyers more than happy. This bike selling from Sydney looks like a great example of an important model in BSA’s history.
1982 Moto Guzzi 850 Le Mans MkIII – $24,000 neg.
SELLER SAYS: Purchased as a restoration project in 2019 from Mario at Thunderbikes in Perth. Extensive rebuild with all parts replaced or refurbished as required. Bike has travelled 3700kms since with nothing to spend. 86,766km. Currently on club rego. Selling to finance another Guzzi. All genuine enquires to mobile only. Price negotiable. Contact Barry on 0407 983 696 (Perth, WA)
1974 Ducati 450 Mk 2 – $24,000
SELLER SAYS: The Ducati Mark 2 represents the final build of the singles. Most Ducati buyers went for the Desmo model. In 1974 I know I did. Ironically, the Mark 2’s didn’t sell as well. I believe that only 90 were imported into Australia. If this is true, then my bike is rather unique. 55,561 km. I’m selling because of age and a need to downsize my collection. The bike is currently registered on conditional historic plates. I believe that this bike would suit a serious collector of Ducati motorcycles. Contact Nigel on 0467 879 093 (Millthorpe, NSW)
1969 Triumph Bonneville 650 – $19,000

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)
1969 Triumph Bonneville 650 –
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).
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.
