Sixties VW pickup with a Ducati in back looked perfect.
1975 Honda CB400F Super Sport, $5,265: Showing 5,107 miles and only a few light scratches, this super clean Honda should have made the seller very happy.
1965 Honda CB77 Superhawk, $7,956: In race kit, sans headlight, this stripped down clubman-style racer brought more than most full-bodied street versions. Sometimes less is more.
Norton John Player Special was one of many tasty British classics on hand.
1975 Triumph Trident, $5,616: Nice original paint bike showing only 6,000 miles. Clean, original paint bikes like this will continue to appreciate; this one was a good deal.
Lovely 1940 Big Tank Crocker was Best of Show winner at the inaugural Quail Motorcycle Gathering.
1977 Yamaha RD400, $7,020: Selling price is roughly three times what a new one sold for in 1977. This “Road Debris” was nearly perfect with only 3,000 miles on the clock. Top dollar for tiptop condition.
1967 BSA A65 Lightning, $7,020: Very nice paint, new correct Dunlop tires. Correctly restored, not over done example of a classic British twin. Nicely bought.
1952 AJS 18S 500cc single, $4,446: Nice old British thumper. Except for ugly, ill-fitting dual seat, which may have kept the price down, this was a pretty good deal.
1967 BMW R60/2, $16,965: Beautiful small tank, Dover White /2. Under the money considering an almost identical one in black brought $6,435 more.
1978 Kawasaki KZ1000 Z1-RTC Turbo, $10,062: A true straight-line Superbike. With only 500 imported, the Z1-RTC is rare by Japanese standards. Only 10,536 miles. Below the money; the buyer should be happy.
1977 Ducati 900SS, $29,500: Top dollar for a square case duck. Seller should be smiling all the way to the bank.
1963 Triumph Bonneville, $82,240: McQueen’s desert sled, built by Ekins and painted by Von Dutch — the Holy Trinity of California Cool. Is this a fading memory that will be lost on the next generation or a long- term investment that will continue to appreciate?
Ex-McQueen 1929 Harley-Davidson 45ci DL, $39,780: Reportedly the last motorcycle McQueen purchased, and probably double what a DL is worth. I guess it’s the right price for somebody.
Wards-Benelli 250 Sport, $4,095: Lovely but a bit over restored. But it would be hard to duplicate — even if you started with a free Benelli.
