1969 BSA LIGHTNING- Customer Hardtail

The BSA Lightning was designed as the all-round sports machine of the 1960's, planned largely for export to the US market to complement the touring Thunderbolt and the later development, the supersports Spitfire. Development of the engine aimed to make it more reliable, quieter and less prone to oil leaks, with top speed sacrificed to improve mid-range and rideability. Nevertheless, with twin carburetors the A65L could still reach 108 mph (174 km/h).

1982 YAMAHA XS650- Project

1982 YAMAHA XS650- Project

The Yamaha XS650 is a mid-size motorcycle made by Yamaha Motor Company. The standard model was introduced in 1968 and produced through 1979. The "Special" cruiser model was introduced in 1978 and produced through 1985. The XS650 began with the 1955 Hosk SOHC 500 twin. After about 10 years of producing 500 twin, Hosk engineers designed a 650 cc twin. Later the Hosk company was acquired by Showa Corporation, and in 1960 Yamaha had bought Showa with Hosk's early design of 650 cc twin.

When the Yamaha XS 650 was launched in 1968 it had one of the most advanced engines in its class of large parallel twin motorcycles. The engine and gearbox are unit construction with the crankcase split horizontally for ease of assembly whereas almost all contemporaries in its class in 1968 are either unit construction with a vertically split crankcase or pre-unit construction with separate engine and gearbox. The XS650's engine was used in AMA Professional Dirt Track Racing by national champion Kenny Roberts. In 1968 only the Laverda 750S, also launched that year, matched the XS 650's modernity of unit construction and SOHC valve operation.

1968 YAMAHA AS1-C Street Scrambler

1968 YAMAHA AS1-C Street Scrambler- Sold   Moto Armory Museum

We picked this bike up last fall in a multi bike sort of deal. Actually, we had to buy 3 others from the guy so we could get our hands on this one! Restored to mostly stock, she now sounds, looks, and feels great. She's super light (lets just say she weighs less than some of our past girlfriends) and is a hoot to ride around town and back roads.  All we can say is this; she may look small, but once you get this puppy in her powerband... hang on. If you've never ridden one of these, you will be pleasantly surprised. Head on over to to check out their article.

1977 YAMAHA RD425

1977 YAMAHA RD425

SOLD- Ohio

This sporty little beast is a barrel of fun to ride. Though, we have been taking it a little easy on her since she just had a fresh rebuild on the motor. We also upgraded the suspension, brakes, electronics and
controls. Come to think of it, we either upgraded, replaced, or repaired
everything on this baby! We wanted to build a unique and fun bike to
ride while still maintaining some of what we consider true 'RD spirit'.

With many custom pieces made of fiberglass or aluminum, not only does it run great but shes quite a bit lighter too. They definitely wont be able to keep up and only way they will be able to find you is to follow that little trail of blue two-stroke perfume down the road. Head over to to check out their feature. Also featured on,,,, and on the Yamaha Motors USA page.
