Now, I know what you boys and girls are thinking: “Phil, this website is called Rare Sport Bikes for sale – not Classic Bikes for sale or Cafe Racer for sale!” Well, funny you should say that because… well I’ll let Dan explain!
I’ve decided to start a new site that focuses on more classic sporting motorcycles for sale, in the 25+ years old type of vintage: http://classicsportbikesforsale.com I’m still trying to decide if I’ll include customs, like bobbers and cafe bikes, the site will definitely include factory sport bikes and race bikes of the period. Obviously in it’s infancy and needs work, but take a look and let me know what you think.
Now accepting author applications for the site: firstname.lastname@example.org
Unfortunately this listing for the Nortan Atlas has already passed, but if it gets re-listed, it could very well appear over at Classic Sport Bikes For Sale next time. Thanks for the plug Phil!
Anyway, sport bikes are cool, but there is something magical about a nice classic and/or cafe racers. I don’t know too much about Nortons (or other Brit bikes for that matter), but the brand has a loyal following among classic circles. There is a pristine 1967 Norton Atlas on ebay:
Exquisite, no expense spared build of 1967 Norton Atlas in cafe trim. Done by master Norton and Lotus restorer Bill Eley, this motorcycle won People’s Choice Award in the Motorcycle Classics Magazine concours at Miller Motorsports Park, Tooele, UT on September 6, 2009. Words cannot do justice to this motorcycle. It was painstakingly constructed with the incredible attention to detail and custom fabricated parts that characterize his work.
If you’re looking for the absolute best in a vintage Norton motorcycle, this is it.
Big words, but then again, this IS a very nice award-winning bike! There are plenty of detailed pictures of this gem in the ebay listing, so check it out!
Hopefully Dan will let me post more classic stuff in the future!
