1 of 5

We've been browsing MCN bikes for sale every day to bring you some of our top picks from over 9,000 motorcycles for sale.             

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

Triumph Daytona

1993 Triumph Daytona 1200 - £1750
First generation Hinckley ‘superbike’ is an old school behemoth, but versatile, durable and now appreciating.
We say: By ’93 Triumph finishes much improved. This good 30,000-mile example is decent value.

 

Honda CB250 Superdream

1981 Honda CB250N Superdream - £775
Staple, hugely popular early ‘80s learner four-stroke twin is somewhat humdrum but decent, too.
We say: Often derided but remembered with growing affection.  This one’s usable and a good starter classic.

 

Suzuki GSX-R1100

1987 Suzuki GSX-R1100 - £3950
Big brother to original ’85 GSX-R750 is brutal but useful and has solid classic credentials.
We say: Ultra-rare in this original (including pipe) and excellent condition – most have been streetfightered/crashed – hence price. 

 

Yamaha XS650

1977 Yamaha XS650 - £650
Four-stroke twin is a classic in it’s own right. This one’s an unfinished flattrack-style conversion.
We say: Looks like not much is needed for a cool Kenny Roberts replica at a tempting price.
