One of 110 Buell RS1200-5 bikes in the world and only one of fifteen California 'kit' bikes, complete with the controversial flip-up passenger backrest:


One of 25 or so, low-pipe KTM Adventures brought to the US (
documented here):


500 made per year, worldwide, one of about 50 a year that came to the US. KTM's first electric start bike--the 620 Duke



One of 200 Cagiva Elefants brought to the US. Badged here as a Ducati, they didn't even bother making MPH speedometers for them:



Most people never even heard of Excelsior Henderson, though they DID build 1,950, genuine, American motorcycles that had no Harley clone parts.
I bought this one in 2000 and vowed to never sell it.


Having one of the 1,950 wasn't rare enough so I added one of the final bikes: one of fifty Touring Limited Editions--their only fully loaded touring model.
