Up for sale is my 1978 R80/7.
I’ve owned and ridden this bike for the last 6 years and it has always been good to me. The Euro handlebars are slightly narrower than the original American bars and bar-end turnsignals have replaced the original units. The saddle has been recently recovered and is in great shape. Krauser hard cases and rear rack are in great condition as well. The Porsche anniversary silver paint shines and there isn’t any rust on the bike. The wheels are true, the Michelin Macadam tires have plenty of life in them and the front and rear shocks are good.
78,341 miles. Feel free to contact me with questions or to come see the bike. $5500
We found this DKW project on Atlanta’s Craigslist. The owner claims that the original frame was converted to a soft-tail in the 50’s and that there are two engines included in the sale. There aren’t any pictures in the listing nor is there a price but if we get a reply we’ll post up what we get. Plan on this one being a full project as it hasn’t run since the early 60’s. The picture above is what they looked like new.
We came across this clean ’74 Yamaha RD200 on Craigslist over the weekend. These bikes are a scream both litteraly and figuratively as they’ll rev upwards of 10,000 rpm. While we wouldn’t ride this bike across the country, the torque that these have make them a blast to race around town on. Find it above in Dunwoody with an asking price of $1975.
First off, note that the picture above is not of the actual project BSA for sale but a stock photo of the same year and model. We found this ’59 Super Rocket on Craigslist in Atlanta with an owner that’s looking for good home for it. The Super Rockets feature a 650cc twin and were pretty reliable. At $1000 its worth a call to see what kind of shape this one is in.
Here’s a very cool ’52 NSU motorcycle that we found on eBay. There aren’t a lot of NSU’s over here and the owner also claims to have a ’51 Zundapp. The NSU was up for auction a few weeks ago with a starting price of $3,900 but ended without a bid. Its now been reduced to $3,200 but it may be worth asking the seller for a package deal with the Zundapp depending on its condition. Find it above on eBay in Florida with 6 days to go.
Based on the war time BMW R71 Dnepr built military bikes like this one for the USSR through to the 80’s. This ’62 is said to have a 650cc motor which was the first OHV engine that Dnepr built and a very cool two wheel drive system that drives the sidecar. With a reverse gear and high ground clearance these are said to be formidable off road machines. Stick your dog in the sidecar and you’ll turn heads in this for sure. Find it here in Covington, GA with offers and trades being taken but no price listed.
Here is a good looking ’69 Triumph 500 in North Carolina. $3500 seems a reasonable price considering the work that is said to have been done.
