We've been browsing MCN bikes for sale every day to bring you some of our top picks from over 10,000 motorcycles for sale.      

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

Honda 400/4


1977 Honda CB400/4 -
 £1299
‘Baby’ Japanese ‘70s multi is definitive ‘starter classic’.
We say: Still good value and spares/back-up among best.

 

Kawasaki GT185


1974 Suzuki GT185 -
 £1295

Cute two-stroke twin is oddball 125/250 compromise
We say: Sweet and easy but only a borderline classic.

 

Suzuki TS125


1972 Suzuki TS125 -
 3389

Beautifully restored two-stroke single more ornament than off-roader
We say: ‘70s trailies now very popular – although this is still steep.

 

Yamaha FZ600


1987 Yamaha FZ600 -
£800

Pre-FZR supersport straddles air-cooled and ally chassis eras
We say: Original apart from 550 motor. Oddball but cute.

 

Suzuki GSX-R750


1985 Suzuki GSX-R750 -
£2500

Ultralight first GSX-R rewrote the rulebook and still usable today
We say: Decent, original ’85s increasingly rare, especially with just 14K miles.
