Honda CB250


1980 Honda CB250N Superdream -
 £395
Loved and loathed best-selling learner 250 of early ‘80s
We say: Naff, maybe, but original, cute and buttons cheap.

 

Kawasaki Z900


1973 Honda CB250 -
 £1200

Classic ‘70s junior Honda. Fully restored
We say: Pretty and good, but pricey compared to above.

 

Kawasaki z200


1980 Kawasaki Z200 -
 £400

Cute, budget 200 single. Honest rather than appetising
We say: About as simple as bikes get. Cheap classic intro.

 

Suzuki GS450


1987 Suzuki GS450 -
£695

Oddball semi-Katana. Interesting rather than special
We say: Cheap though. A run and ride classic.

 

Yamaha GTS1000


1994 Yamaha GTS1000 -
£3999

Awesome hub centre white elephant. Still decent tourer today
We say: Just 11K miles, plus luggage. £4K gets you an AWFUL lot of bike.

 

Yamaha RD500lc


1984 Yamaha RD500LC -
£5999

One of best of mid-‘80s 500GP reps. Rare and appreciating.
We say: Some prefer Suzuki RG. Either way, prices skyrocketting.
