66 Benelli 125 a 250 frame possibly called Baracuda? Thought it was. Forward cylinder 4 stroke single.
2014 Honda Forza 300 scooter. I have never seen anyone else on one. Actually around here scooters are rare.
Words cannot begin to describe how much I want that Honda.
first motorcycle I ever "rode"....
Sitting in my dad's lap.
I almost want to buy one today for nostalgia
Well, there's rare because very few were built, rare because it's old, or rare because it's got a California plate...or any combination of above. And prolly some reasons I've left out. Here's one of mine, model 212, 1977 Alpina. Not really legal but does have a plate...
1974 TY 250 serial # 10001
Eh, he's just trying to get around the guy on the inside without scaring him.
1995 MuZ Skorpion Replica 660
Yes , I was one of the none that bought one of these new off the showroom floor .
I also had one of these , not sure which is more rare .
When the Yamaha Virago first came out I thought, "Bleaugh! But the mechanicals have promise...." And promptly forgot about it.
Years later I came across this (not mine, but exactly like mine):
It's an XV920RJ, the Euro chain-drive version of the Virago. Didn't even know they existed. It delivered on all the promise I saw in the Virago, with none of the cruiser-chic that turned me off so much. Mine needed some help, which I gave it, and it worked as well as it looks. Not a hot performer, but a very satisfying everyday bike. I've never seen another one in person. Sold it when home and family got too demanding, not long after I got everything working right.
1992 Yamaha TDM 850. It had some issues and I eventually sold it.
The RE5 was a rotary.
There seems to be some confusion between an RE5 rotary Suzuki, and an R5 2 stroke Yamaha.
I knew what they BOTH meant , but it was funny.
Still have it. 1975 T-160 just over 7200 made
Pursang or Sherpa S? Looks like a Pursang to me.
I had an 1982 Suzuki GS650G. May not be "technically" rare. Cannot remember ever seeing another one anywhere. Which is unusual.
Vetter Quicksilver faring and Krause Starlet saddlebags on mine.
