Good job I refrained from posting the DR Big, XL 600 and Worldcrosser as I didn't think that they were rare enough then

A collection of Dakar bikes. A man after my own heart. You previously owned those bikes? How could you sell them? It's good that most of those will never get seen here or I'd be more broke than I am now.

For clarity, I must point out that I still own the bikes I listed...along with:

1987 Cagiva 650 Elefant Lucky Strikes Edition: according to a recent conversation with Brian Catterson (a guy with a serious Cagiva problem), the 650 Elefant wasn't nearly as rare in the US as the 900. Maybe true but, only a small number of the black & white Dakar tribute paint jobs made it here.


And of course, the requisite BMW R100GS PD (mine is a 1995). Only a few hundred of these made it to the US each year and while they seem plentiful on this forum, the total number in the US is probably just around 1000 bikes.


Not a Dakar bike but, unusual: 1972 Yamaha Trackmaster street tracker. Not one of the stock-framed conversions but, a real nickel-plated Trackmaster frame, ancient Ceriani forks, a wooden CB750 front brake and a completely ineffective Hurst Airheart rear brake (neither brake necessary if the bike were used the way it was intended). One of my ongoing, nagging projects--it needs a host of things to be redone but since I'm sure the fantasy of riding it is better than the reality, that's ok.

Take the front brake and lights off that Yamaha and it's no streettracker! It looks like a real dirttrack bike that someone put lights on so he could ride to the races!! I love it.

I had one of those Chinese QLink bikes when they first came out. It was a Legacy 250 in silver. Painfully slow, poor handling, but it got 64 mpg and always ran perfectly. I gave it to a buddy who immediately dropped it then blew the headgasket. This is obvious but... don't ever get one. Even for free they're not worth it.

Though gaining popularity, it's rare that I ever see another one in the wild. I suppose the same could be said for any Guzzi, though.

Funny thing. I was reading this thread this afternoon, then I left the house to go pick up my daughter at school. As we were pulling out of the parking lot what should drive by but a CX Honda! It was pretty quick.

The rarist and most unusual bike I have would probobly be my 1978 Ducati GTL 500 paralell twin that my wife got for me as a Christmas present in 1980 to replace the Harley XLCR 1000 that got stolen the previous July. I'm not sure but I don't think more than 50 made it to the US.
Picture is from last summer at a local Ducati display
Or it could be my 1953 NSU 250 Max

Currantly awaiting restoration.The most unusual feature it has is what NSU called the Ultra max drive for the overhead cam, there is an ecentric on the end of the crankshaft and a matching ecentric on the end of the cam with two connecting rods similar to the drive rods on a steam locomotive to operate the cam, No chincey chains or expensive complicated shafts and bevel gears here! It was an extremely well built and fine running motor.

I inherited my rarest bike from my late step-dad last year. It is a 1948 Harley Davidson Model 125 2 stroke. It is need of a full restoration but it is all there with the exception of the highway bars. Restored it would look like the bike pictured.
