6. The Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum is celebrating 50 years of Honda selling bikes in the U.S. by raffling off not one, but two vintage Hondas. The first is a 1969 Honda CB750KO Sandcast, fully restored by the prominent restoration expert Vic World of World Motorcycles. The second is an all original 1965 Honda C100 Step-thru with only one mile on the odometer. Some lucky stiff will win both, and raffle tickets are just $5 per entry, or five entries for $20. The drawing will be held during AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days 2010, and the winner need not be present at the drawing to win. To buy tickets online, go to www.MotorcycleMuseum.org and click on “Raffles and More”
7. Daniel Peirce is one of our favorite gear-head photographers, and his motorcycle engine prints are spectacular. The Norton 850 Commando metallic print is a 16-inch by 20-inch print signed and numbered by the “Lord of Light, Master of the Pixel” Daniel Peirce himself. This Commando was customized by Dave Howe and appeared in Cycle World magazine’s American Flyers in 2005. Sale price: $59.
