For a low production oddity, probably a 1987 CanAm / Armstrong 300AT trials bike, I had some years back.

But presently, I've got to lose the tech dinosaur status next year and learn how to post / transfer digital photos online.

It's finally time, to sell the minty black and white 86 RG500, I've had oiled up and tucked aside since 2001.

I owned this bike, in this color, when I was stationed in Hawaii while in the Navy. I crashed it and lived, jumping a curb at about 70mph. Cracked the block so it sat on the front porch for a year while I tried to figure out how to repair it. Eventually sold it just before being discharged. Never had a picture...thanks for the memories.

Both in my garage:

On the right, a 1991 Lemans 1000 CI. One of seventeen imported to the USA that year, the final one for that model.

On the left, a 2004 V11 Lemans Nero Corsa. One of fifty imported to the USA that year, the final one for that model.

I rode this in the late 60's early 70's in more than a few enduros. Even took a first place in one of them.

76 Bultaco 360 Astro. Bultaco bought a Champion flattrack frame and copied it. It even had all the original Bultaco thumbs-up bolts. Never finished a race on that bike. Might have been my lack of mechanical prowess at the time, but that bike was a shorttrack weapon. Bought it cheap. Sold it cheap.

Bought this bike yesterday and love it, but its a little more Dual Sport than I want. I cleaned the carbs, changed the oil and set valve lash. Muzzy pipe sounds awesome!! Petcock needs to be rebuilt ( 5.00 part and 30 minutes of your time) Comes with a brand new rear tire and the black Thor Motorcross helmet in the picture. This thing pulls like a tractor. Shoot me an offer. Also will entertain trades for a smaller dual sport. At least a 350 cc, no off-brands made in South East Asia somewhere. Text ok. 7274817191

A BMW R65LS. My first BMW and just a great little bike. I got more positive comments about that old BMW than any other vehicle I've ever owned. Kind of regret selling it, but you can only keep so much stuff, right?

I'd include a picture, but I can't figure out how!

Not the rarest bikes, BUT everyone always wants to talk to me about them..or they run away...not knowing if their similar looking Hayabusa has enough in it to take it out.... Sounds does alot for a motorcycle.

The gray bike is a 99...traded it away. Missed it a week later. That was over a year ago. I fixed that isse..got the yellow one last week;)

Not sure if he ever got the record, but it doesn't really matter as long as he took his shot.
I want one of these...

Maico MD 250 roadster.

Not sure how many they made. Rotary-valve six-speed premix two-stroke. Great to ride, surfed along on the torque at about 70mph.

Now a restoration job for "one day". (When I'll probably be appalled by how slow it is.)

Keep in mind it is a single cylinder 600 that is kick start only! This thing has almost sent me over the handle bars more than once trying to start it! It also has a certain "routine" you have to follow to get it start.
