We've been browsing MCN bikes for sale every day to bring you some of our top picks from over 9,000 motorcycles for sale.          

Here's just a few of the fantastic modern classic machines available this week:   

Honda CB650

1983 Honda CB650 Nighthawk - £2650
Slightly garish, semi-custom/flat-track-styled and US-targetted version of CB650 four has aged better than most.
We say: Didn’t catch on at the time but somehow cooler today. Decent nick explains price.

 

Kawasaki Z650

1982 Kawasaki Z650 - £1699
Workmanlike but respected Zed is arguably definitive late ‘70s UJM. This, is the later, semi-custom, alloy-wheeled SR version.
We say: Completely restored and so impressive value, if not to everyone’s taste.

 

Honda Goldwing

1977 Honda GL1000 Gold Wing - £1500
First generation Gold Wing is robust, distinctive and is becoming increasingly collectable.
We say: Needs some TLC, but not bad and cheap. Comes with period Windjammer fairing and King and Queen seat.

 

Triumph Daytona 1200

1993 Triumph Daytona 1200 - £1200
First generation Hinckley ‘superbike’ is an old school behemoth, but versatile, durable and now appreciating.
We say: By ’93 Triumph finishes much improved. This good 10,000-mile example is decent value.
