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:         

Ducati Sport Desmo 500

1981 Ducati Sport Desmo 500 - £3495
Best of Ducati’s disastrous ‘70s 500 parallel twins with later desmo head.
We say: Sales failure led directly to creation of iconic Pantah. Interesting but flawed.


Honda NSR250

1995 Honda NSR250 - £5495
Iconic, exquisite, 250cc stroker GP replica only ever in UK as import, hence rarity and price.
We say: GP reps don’t come much purer than this: Smartcard ignition, Pro-Arm, the works…


Suzuki GS1100

1983 Suzuki GS1100 - £1250
Later generation GS gained 100cc, shaft drive and sports-tourer status.
We say: This one’s good and original, still slightly dreary, though…


Yamaha DT175

1979 Yamaha DT175 - £1850
Definitive late ‘70s two-stroke trailie, with pioneering monoshock
We say: Mint, original and decent value. The stuff of teenage dreams.
