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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
