Published: 23 July 2010

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: 

Suzuki GSX750

1981 Suzuki GSX750 - £1700
‘Junior’ version of world-leading four-valve GSX1100. Not as significant, but same visual appeal.
We say: Good GSXs now appreciating. 750 is cheaper. Apart from pipe this is standard and good.


Honda CB650 Nighthawk

1983 Honda CB650 Nighthawk - £2650
US flat track/custom-styled version of otherwise bland SOHC CB. Surprisingly, the styling’s somehow endured…
We say: Later DOHC version better. Bikes don’t get much more ‘80s’ than this…


Suzuki GS550

1978 Suzuki GS550 - £1350
Baby GS four was smart, robust and useful, if not exactly earth-shattering.
We say: Definitive late ‘70s/early ‘80s student hack. Not as cherished as GS750, but appreciating.


Yamaha RD250

1977 Yamaha RD250 - £1595
The late ‘70s hooligan 250 – potent, crisp, smart and addictive. Again, good ones now appreciating.
We say: Decent consition and value but lacks desireable alloys and not best colour.
