Faux Patina: Restored 1947 Harley-Davidson FL

1969 Rupp Roadster Twin-Engine Minibike!

If one engine is good, two engines are better, right? Yes, that’s almost always the case, at least when it comes to custom minibikes. 12 horsepower is a lot for a minibike and the seller of this custom 1969… more»

Patina You Can’t Fake: 1945 Harley-Davidson

BF Auction: 1982 Honda C70 Passport

BF Auction: Custom 1976 VW Trike

User-Friendly Pit Bike: 1991 Honda Cub EZ90

Scotty G’s Garage: 1975 Honda GL1000 Gold Wing

Two-Stroke Tiddler: 1970 Yamaha 80 G6S

Even in a big country like the United States, bigger isn’t always better when it comes to motorcycles. A tiny tiddler like this two-stroke 1970 Yamaha 80 G6S isn’t made for cross-country travel, but I’d guess that a few… more»

Original Trail 70: 1971 Honda CT70H K0
