Welcome to Craigslist Crapshoot, our weekly search for the most bizarre, awesome, and/or terrible vehicles that the online classifieds has to offer.
I’m going to say right off the top that my imaginary bike stable includes a 1975 Honda 400-Four, a 1956 Triumph TR6-B Trophy, and a 1974 BMW R90s in Daytona Orange. Yes, I have eclectic tastes.
Your tastes were equally eccentric, and varied between those who started their contribution with “Not a bike guy…” and those who opened with “I’m old and want something comfortable.” I think both of those positions rule out actual purchase, however the bikes that got the most votes, and hence might actually find a home amongst us (not really) included a cool vintage ROKON MX340 offered up by mdharrell. Along similar lines came a 2012 URAL with a sidecar that JayP thought might be garage-worthy.
Our winner however was a bike somewhat along the lines of my favorite Japanese bike. That was the 1976 Honda CB750 found by Alff and described as having sat indoors and undercover for the last 33 years. Wow!
Congrats to Alff, and thank you all for getting back on two wheels. Now, let’s get prepped.
