Motorcycles of Historic Importance
While not necessarily the best motorcycles or the most expensive, these are some of the most influential motorcycles ever built.
Daimler Einspur 1885 Germany
More info. Possibly the first motorcycle ever built.
Harley Davidson 61EL 1936 USA
Honda 50 1958 Japan
Honda CB750 1969 Japan
Bultaco Sherpa 1964 Spain
Vespa 160 GS 1962 Italy
Vincent HRD Series C Black Shadow 1965 UK
One of the more famous pictures in motorcycle history. Aboard the Vincent motorcycle owned by the California sportsman, John Edgar, this final run resulted in the most famous photograph in motorcycling, the "bathing suit bike" shot taken from a speeding car on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. Rollie lay flat out on the motorcycle wearing only a speedo bathing suit, shower cap and a pair of borrowed sneakers.
Interesting and Beautiful Motorcycles
This is a much more subjective category but it'd be hard to argue these aren't beautiful and interesting examples.
Indian Scout 1920 USA
Kawasaki H1 Mach III 1970 Japan
Matchless G45 1952 UK
Megola Racing Model 1921 Italy
Honda RC-166 250cc 6-Cylinder Racer 1960 Japan
MV Agusta 350 GP 1950 Italy
Norton Manx 1955 UK
NSU Rennmax 1957 Germany
Opel Motoclub 1929 Germany
Cotton 500 1937 UK
Triumph Speed Twin 1939 UK
Villa Gran Prix 1965
Odds and Ends
These are bikes I like for one esoteric reason or another.

DKW Hummel 1965 Germany
Ducati Mach 1 1964 Italy
Ducati Paul Smart Imola 1972 Italy
FN M13 1948 Belgium
Scott Flying Squirrel TT 1929 UK

This 1982 Evinrude 235hp 2 stroke outboard motor is for parts or repair only. I say that is because I have not tried to start it in three years. I'd say it would fire right up. I have replaced the timing key, stator and trigger, two new power packs and rebuilt all three carbs. This is a 6 cylinder monster. This motor is NOT for the faint of heart. I had this on a 17 1/2 foot Cajun Bass boat and when you opened up the throttle, it became scary and my younger children started to cry. The guy I bought the boat from had a buddy who was a police officer clock him at 81 mph. So on the way home from the lake, wondering what to do with this boat/motor combination, I lost the boat cover and threw my hands up in the air and just bought a universal boat cover and parked it. Never looked back. If you're interested or have any questions, please email. When emailing please indicate: BOAT MOTOR in the subject line or email will not be opened. Thanks!
'69 El Camino 'SS' model, original owner, title clean, original bill of sale, currently has 454 CID engine, ideal car for restoration project, has been sitting for several years, and engine needs to be services before starting, was running when parked, $5500 obo
Old car been parked in our yard since the shifter fell out about 7 years ago. Ran up to that point. Don't know if there is anything else wrong with it.
Doors a little hard to open. Inside is really dirty. Dash is cracked from sun, but seats look ok. We do have the title.
All but one tire holds are great. One will hold for a while, so long enough to haul away. You will need to come and haul away, cannot deliver. Please, I want this out of the yard before the baby comes and people are coming over more.

1996 Kawasaki 250 Dirt bike. Low miles. No title.
Who needs a lame flame paint job when you can have THE REAL THING! Minor petcock leak (about a gallon every 2-3 min.) Exhaust gets really hot for some reason and bike will SOMETIMES burst into flames. Scary the first time but you get used to it! Nice in the winter!
Should wear leathers/helmet! Also warm tires grip the road better! Think safety!
Carbs need to be cleaned. Idles rough.
