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

Kawasaki ZXR400

1992 Kawasaki ZXR400 - £1200
Kawasaki’s classic 400 supersport bike makes modern 600s look like torque-monsters. Still handy on track or backroad in the right hands.
We say: Looks largely original, in the best colours, low miles, and it’s cheap. Set aside £300 quid for tidying up and giving the brakes and suspension a freshen up to get the best out of it.

 

Yamaha RD250LC

1981 Yamaha RD250LC - £1250
The current mid-life crisis classic of choice, the 100mph 250LC was the hottest learner bike of the 1980s.
We say: This one’s probably already sold. Tidy and largely original but not mint, the £1250 asking price is an utter bargain when others go for thrice that. Ideal base for further restoration, or just to ride and enjoy without worrying about it too much.

 

Triumph Daytona 1000

1991 Triumph Daytona 1000 - £1400
Hinckley Triumph’s first sportsbike, the 1000 was more of sports tourer in reality. 1000 didn’t last long, so they’re rare.
We say: Built to last, and largely owned by caring types, this 34,000-miler looks very neat and original. Likely to appreciate in value in years to come due to its rarity and significance in Triumph’s rebirth.

 

Kawasaki GPZ900R

1986 Kawasaki GPZ900R - £1500
A key milestone on the road to the superbikes we have today – decent power, good handling for the time and a full fairing. A genuine 150mph machine, and comfy enough to do big miles even now.
We say: This second-year bike is in unusual (but standard) blue colours, two owners, completely stock with full service history and 27k on the clock. If it stands up to inspection it’s a great example of the GPZ.
