EXCLUSIVE: Kansas Collection Part 2

Josh MortensenBy Josh Mortensen

Back in March, we featured Don’s collection of classic cars in Kansas. Now that a few of the cars have sold and shipped to their new homes, he is hoping to get some of the motorcycles sold and find homes for the rest of the cars. We thought we would do a quick update to let everyone know what’s still available. If you see something you’d like, be sure to message him to make an offer! And if you haven’t read about Don’s collection already, be sure to check it out here.

Don doesn’t really know much about the motorcycles, just that he wants them gone. Scotty had the opportunity to check out the collection in person and may know more about some of the bikes. I’ve done my best to identify each bike, but I’m no motorcycle expert so please forgive me for any mistakes! Also, the photos you see here are the only photos that we have of the bikes, but Scotty did a great job getting as many detail shots as possible, so please take a closer look at them before asking for additional photos.

Suzuki RE5 – It looks like this rotary powered Suzuki has 13021 miles and is in nice shape. I’ve always been a fan of the rotary engine, so this is one I’ve always wanted to experience!

Kawasaki KE 250 – Looks to be a nice clean little bike with just 3,793 miles on it. With a good cleaning and tune up, this could be a fun bike to zip around town on.

Suzuki 90 – This little bike won’t get you anywhere to fast, but it will get you just about anywhere you’d want to go. It looks to be in fantastic shape with just 1,265 miles on the odometer.

Suzuki GT550 – This is one of the larger bikes in the collection and with a 550cc 3 cylinder engine, it should do just fine around town or even on the highway. It’s odometer is showing just 767 miles, so this one could be a great buy!

Yamaha CT1 – I’ll admit, I don’t know a ton about Yamahas, but this one looks to be a late ’60s or early ’70s CT1 to me. I could definitely be wrong, if so let me know. It needs to be cleaned up and has 5,377, so a tune up is likely in order.

Honda C70 Step-Thru – If you are looking for basic transportation that is cheap, dependable and easy to ride, you can’t get much better than the Honda C70 Scooter. It definitely isn’t fast, but it’s easy to ride and gets fantastic fuel mileage. This one is showing just 2,025 miles, so there is a lot of life left in this scooter!

From what I can tell, there are several other bikes in the collection, these were just the ones that caught Scotty’s attention. If you see something you are curious about in the background, don’t hesitate to ask about it!

And below, you can find a complete list of what cars are still available, just in case you didn’t take a look at our previous post!

    Maybe I missed it, more than likely, but where are the descriptions and pricing on the two boats shown in the “fine print” of the pics?

  10. Derek

    Suzuki TC90 had a high/low range selector, so would probably go anywhere. Never had a complete bike, but had most of an engine at one point.
