We've been browsing MCN bikes for sale every day to bring you some of our top picks from over 18,000 motorcycles for sale.             

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


’76 Honda TL125, £1900
Early twin shock Japanese trialster is fondly remembered
We say: Good classic choice: simple, durable, value and fun.

 

 


’86 Honda NS400R, £3995
Big H’s GP replica and RG/RD rival was only ever a 400 so lacks same appeal
We say: Still sweet tho’, and cheaper. This, at just 5K miles, is a time capsule, too.

 


’76 Yamaha XT500, £2200
Early example of original Jap thumper trailie is very collectable
We say: And prices are ascending. This recent US-import is reasonable.

 


’78 Ducati 350, £1495
‘70s desmo single in ex-Swiss Army trim, decent value
We say: Lacks allure (and price) of sport and scrambler versions.
