Published: 07 October 2011

We've been browsing MCN bikes for sale every day to bring you some of our top picks from over 18,000 motorcycles for sale.             

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

’78 Yamaha XS1100, £1295
Original Yam ‘superbike’ shaftie was more tourer than sportster but durable and significant
We say: Not mint, but original, clean, becoming rare and decent value.



’77 Suzuki GS750, £1650
Early, wire-wheeled version of Suzuki first big four. Basis for a generation of GS/GSXs…
We say: Sweet, effective, good condition/value and desirable.


’80 Suzuki GT250 X7, £1999
Last and fastest or air-cooled 250 strokers but lacks allure of LC.
We say: Excellent condition and appreciating but still cheaper than a Yam.


’85 Honda XL600, £1700
Classic Dakar-style single predates monster-trailie twins.
We say: Style somehow still uber-cool, plus usable, simple and cheap.
