    Not an old bike but the woman is a '59 and the ad is worth reading.

    5 DiBlasi gas scooters in fair condition. I have not run them in a few years. The last time I messed with I believe 4 are complete and one might need some small parts. They will likely need a little service to get in perfect condition.

    Some spare parts are included, as well as the carrying bags. Shown is one folded to give you an idea how small they fold up.

    Just for reference someone is selling one like these is on ebay now for $1500. My price is for all 5.

    Vintage Honda cb750A - $1100

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    1976 Honda cb750A - Hondamatic750

    fuel: gas
    odometer: 10000
    paint color: green
    title status: clean
    transmission: automatic

    Rare find. 1976 Honda cb750a (automatic) SOHC. This bike only has 10,000 miles. This would be an easy restore. I hate to part with it but, have too many other projects and it's killing me to see it sit. The bike will run but, I haven't started it in quite some time. (notice the inspection sticker is fairly recent). I have the battery out and it's been kept on a tender so, it's in good shape.

    This is the first of (only) 3 years Honda made this model (76, 77, 78). The paint is the original Muscat Green and is the most sought after. There is are 2 small dents in the right side of tank but, otherwise in great shape. Side covers are there and intact. It has some aftermarket accessories but, are period correct like backrest, hard luggage and upgraded king and queen seat. It has most everything that came stock with the bike INCLUDING THE KICKSTARTER LEVER (I have heard this is almost impossible to find). Gauges are in awesome shape.

    Check them out online. Restored bikes like this are going for upwards of $5k or more.

    These older classic cb Hondas are getting more rare and harder to find (affordably) in decent shape. No doubt this one will only increase in value over the years based on it's rarity.

    I don't plan on taking any less for this bike but, would consider a trade for a decent sized trail bike for my son (crf 230/ ttr 230).

    Text or phone calls are best. No need to hit me up with, "do you still have the bike..." as I will remove this ad the second the bike sells. If you're reading this, the bike is available.

    This could be a great business opportunity for someone, you could pick up people who have been drinking by riding your scooter to them, pack your scooter in the trunk, drive them home, unpack scooter and ride home. Better than a drink calling a tow truck to get them and the car home.

    Yep. Just like the Top Gear episode where they did exactly that.

    Which, as usual with TopGear, worked like a charm :-) Still is a good idea I'd think.

    You won't see one of these every day. Of all the million or so 50 cubic inch (805cc) engines Suzuki has made over the years, this is the only standard street model they ever put it in. Always garaged, recent professional tuneup. 25,+++ miles. Please text me first, then we can talk. More photos when the weather clears.

    Yeah, I'll probably regret passing on it but am likely going for a traditional dual sport instead, DR or another KLR.

    1982 Honda CBX 6 cylinder in excellent condition but I haven't driven it for 2 summers so the carbs will need cleaning. I have less than 3,000 miles on this bike. Yes, this is accurate. All is original other than the corbin seat. I have the original seat that goes with the bike. I purchased it in early 2000 with about 1,500 miles on it. The side cases are in excellent condition and the chrome hinges inside are perfect. This bike has never been in the rain since I owned it and is always garaged kept. Not thrilled about selling it, but I also don't like seeing it sit. The price is firm and I don't want trades.

    Don't find original unmolested Sprints very often. I had two '72s, an SS350 runner and an SX parts bike, plus an H tank like the one shown here. "Quaint" is the best word to describe the Sprint. And just you try to convince an insurance agent it's not a real Harley or a Harley dealer that it is.

    1967 Harley Davidson Sprint 250 - $1200 (Mechanicsville)

    paint color: black
    title status: clean
    transmission: manual

    I have a 67 Harley Davidson Sprint 250 I am thinking of selling. The bike has compression and should run with some minor work such as a battery, carb cleaning, new fuel shutoff, and the tank cleaned out. The tank has rust in it and I have just not gotten around to fixing it.

    This is a very cool example of the 60s era motorcycles with excellent patina. The bike is an extremely simple design and easy to get running. Yo can fix it or put in in a home or business as a conversation piece.

    These bikes were often called by some Harley purists, the hoglette due to them being manufactured by an Italian aircraft manufacturer called Aermacchi and only 250cc. A little more information on them: http://www.motorcycleclassics.com/classic-italian-motorcycles/1966-harley-davidson-sprint-h

    I have too many other projects so this can be someone else's winter fun. Comes with a genuine HD shop manual and has a clean title. Price is well below market as it does need work. As such, I am unwilling to negotiate on price.

    O.K. Here is a 2001 Kawasaki W-650. Only a couple thousand of these came to the U.S. Retro styling, mimics a 60s Triumph . I love this bike but I am Seventy and I cant pretend that my reflexes are as good as they once were . Condition is great . No dents , scratches etc .Look up the reviews and the prices these are fetching on E-Bay .The photos speak for themselves . Call me with any questions .Or mail . Happy new year . Over and out .

    $6000 OBO. Up for sale is a near mint 1978 Yamaha SR500 with 120 ORIGINAL Miles. This is probably the lowest mileage 1978 Yamaha SR500 in the world. This bike was bought brand new and was drained of fluids and stored in a house. The gas tank was perfectly preserved and has zero rust. The bike has all new fluids, oem seals, and starts, runs, and rides great. No leaks. Very little changes to the bike and can be put back to all original stock in minutes. I have all original stock parts that will go with the bike. It could be cleaned up and turned into a show bike. Please feel free to ask any questions. This is a very rare find. Can be used as a daily driver or for a collectors showcase.
