For Sale: 1975 Suzuki GT550M INDY SOLD!

Hi All,

Up for sale is another time machine for you.  A super clean, mostly stock, two stroke!  I’m selling off my 1975 Suzuki GT550M in Grey Metallic.  It has 67xx original miles on the clock and only and a few miles here and there to show it off at the local bike nights.  The bike does have Basani chambers on it and does not come with the stock exhaust.  I might have the center stand for it though.  It recently got new Dunlop GT501s front and rear, a new battery, new oem air filters and fresh fluids.  I went through the carbs and replaced the rubber bellows that turn to sludge after 30+ years.  This GT550 starts right up and clears the smoke after warmed up.  I have ridden it around and the bike is a pure joy to ride.  Exciting mid range and low rpm cruise on the highway.  I have a clean WI title for it from the previous owner.  Send me an email if your interested and would like to schedule a viewing.

Here are some specs for the bike:

FOR SALE: 1981 HONDA EXPRESS MOPED/SCOOTER – SOLD

Moped runs but needs work. Has title.
50cc 2-stroke

The Honda motorcycle corp. of Japan released the Honda Express (NC50) to the North American market in 1977. This new bike was designed to enter the large market for scooters that developed following the 1973 oil crisis. As such it came with a fuel-efficient single-cylinder two-stroke engine. It was also designed to be simple to operate, as many owners would be inexperienced with or intimidated by larger, more complex motorcycles. Honda accomplished this by using a fully automatic transmission and a small oil pump to self-mix the Express’s oil and fuel, thus eliminating the need for premixing.

Today many scooter hobbyists have Expresses because they are reported to be reliable. There are numerous forums and websites on which shop manuals and repair advice can be found.

FOR SALE: HONDAMATIC 1981 HONDA CM400A – SOLD

What A Beautiful Piece Of Motorcycle History This Motorcycle Is. For those unfamiliar with the breed, this is a 1981 Honda CM400a Hondamatic (Automatic Transmission) Motorcycle In Beautiful Condition and ONLY 3446 ORIGINAL MILES.

The Hondamatic Series of motorcycles was an amazing undertaking by Honda. It was made for about 7 years, originally in a 400 size engine and then expanded to include a 750 engine. All else on the bike was the equivalent to the manual transmission model of the bike. The only difference was that amazing automatic transmission which Honda aptly named the “Hondamatic”. These motorcycles were virtually bulletproof and this bike sounds like a well oiled sewing machine…it is that quiet. Just just so you know, there are 2 forward gears and it can be shifted between those gears without using a clutch. In fact, there is no clutch lever. But if you want a true automatic, you can put it in high (2nd) and drive that like all day without having to shift even once. The bike doesn’t even have a clutch lever. Where the clutch lever normally would be is actually an “emergency brake” setup to keep the bike rolling when parked as you can’t really leave this bike “in gear” to prevent rolling.

The paint and chrome is in excellent condition…not totally perfect but remember, this is a 1981 motorcycle. But technically, you could say that it is in museum condition…an excellent survivor of a wonderful motorcycle. It is perfect for beginner riders or women riders who don’t want a very heavy bike, and for those that don’t want to be bothered with shifting. And the fuel economy is excellent…you can expect about 50-60 mpg. And this 1981 Honda CM400a Hondamatic runs and rides as good as it looks. It has a brand new battery and the tires are in good shape. This is the perfect starter bike and city bike. The windscreen is off the bike because it had a crack in it, you have it if you want it. Pick it up now and be ready to ride!

FOR SALE: 1972 HONDA SL350 “ENDURO” – SOLD

8661MI

Candy Topaz Orange

The SL currently has a CB front fender but may have the SL fender buy the time of purchase. The paint is slightly sun faded, has a couple of minor scratches and dents and looks good from about 10ft away. The exhaust is original and highly sought after for being nearly perfect for its age. The bike also has the original full toolkit. Good battery. Motorcycle has been sold/titled as a ’72 but is a late ’71 production. Kick-start only

The SL350 has a 325.6 cubic centimeter (19.87 cu in) OHC parallel twin cylinder, four-stroke motorcycle produced by Honda in the CB/CL/SL350 family for model years 1968 through 1973. Its reliable motor, coupled with dual Keihin carburetors proved to be a popular design. The SL350 is unique in the Honda line for having upswept exhausts and off-road styling, it was among the first bikes to be a dual purpose/enduro bike having both off-road and on road capabilities (rare and super hard to find).

FOR SALE: 1972 HONDA CB500 CAFE RACER – SOLD

The motorcycle is titled, is in nice condition for its age, looks great with clubman bars to give it the look of a cafe racer, has a four-into-one performance exhaust and is in running condition.

The Honda CB500 four, introduced early in the 1970s, was similarly styled to the CB750, but smaller and lighter, with an output of 48 bhp and a manufacturer’s specified top speed of 102 mph. Like the earlier CB750 it sported a single front hydraulic disc brake, rear drum brake, electric starter, and sohc 8-valve engine. It was deemed a better handling bike than the larger model.

FOR SALE: 1972 HONDA SCRAMBLER CL450 – SOLD

The Scrambler Cl model is getting hard to find and one that is in 100% original and correct condition is even harder. The bike shows age appropriate wear and patina, has a good battery, original toolkit and one of the coolest looking and rare exhaust pipes, which happens to be in great condition. Motorcycle has title. Kick and electric start.

The CL450 remained much the same through 1974, though diverged further from its sister bike as time went on. While the CB450 went to a front disc brake in 1970, Honda decided to keep the CL450 with its two drum brakes. Disc brakes were fairly new technology on motorcycles, and unproven in off-road riding. The CB450 was replaced in 1975 when Honda increased the displacement of the engine and renamed it the CB500.

The bike remains popular today among enthusiasts, and many are still in use in flat track racing or have been modified into cafe racers.

Honda’s horsepower rating of the 444cc DOHC parallel twin was 43 hp@9650 RPM off the crank, nearly 100 hp per liter. Top speed could be seen as high as 96 MPH in stock trim with a well-tuned carburetor. If highway speeds are more desirable, the CB450′s gearing can be used to offer more relaxed cruising at higher velocities.

FOR SALE: 1975 CZ MODEL 476 125cc 2-STROKE JAWA/CZ – SOLD

Motorcycle is titled, runs great, has new battery, is in showroom condition, 100% stock and original. The CZ has a vintage/classic, non-factory luggage rack with a fake leather (vinyl) piece of vintage luggage to fit the bike’s look/era (super cool/fun and handy).

ČZ’s Motorcycle development and production as well as competition victories in 1950s and 1960s enabled the ČZ brand to be among the world’s most successful makers of competition and street motorcycles. After World War II, ČZ was the second largest motorcycle manufacturer in Europe. It was during this period that the company experienced its greatest racing successes. ČZ later became well known for its powerful two-stroke motorcycles which the model 476 is a part of.
