Best of bikemart: Modern classics up for grabs this week

Published: 25 March 2011

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:  

’80 Yamaha RD250LC, £1500
Iconic learner two-stroke 250 is becoming ultra-collectable. Still fun, too
We say: Reasonable value for an increasingly rare, honest example. Some work needed.


’87 Suzuki GSX-R1100, £3500
Early ‘slabby’ also becoming rare, particularly original ones – this isn’t
We say: Non-original paint, wheels, pipe, s/arm etc hits value.


’78 Laverda Jota 1000, £13,500
Legendary ‘70s Italian musclebike was king of speed in its day…
We say: Hugely desirable. Huge price down to one owner/mint condition.


’77 Kawasaki Z650, £2595
‘Mini Z1’ was hugely popular and laid Kawasaki foundations for years to come
We say: Lacks Z1/900 cache, but much more usable/affordable. This is a good ‘un.
