Best of Bikeshop: Modern classics up for grabs

1 of 5

We’ve been browsing MCN bikes for sale every day to bring you some of our top picks from over 19,000 motorcycles for sale.             

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

Honda CBX750

’86 Honda CBX750, £795
Straight four came after Honda’s switch to V4s – and won a TT.
We say: Oddball and this one’s a US import, so no classic. But at this money…



Suzuki TS125

’72 Suzuki TS125, £2950
Early Suzuki trailie was simple, attractive and effective. Now collectable.
We say: Fully restored and good looking. Prices ascending.


Yamaha Fazer FZX700

’86 Yamaha FZX700 Fazer, £1499 
Oddball US import ‘hotrod’ is fairly rare in the UK.
We say: Unsurpisingly so. A bit gaudy but cheap and rideable.


Triumph TR6 Tiger

’65 Triumph TR6 Tiger, £6495
UK version of 650 single carb twin popularised by Steve McQueen.
We say: Not quite a Bonneville, nor as expensive either.
