1977 Harley Davidson / Aermacchi 250

Located in Rimini, Italy is a nice example of Harley Davidson’s lightweight product, the Aermacchi 250.  Honestly, I don’t know much about Aermacchis, other than they are genuine lightweight race bikes compared to their HD brethren.  Although this bike is located in Italy, it should be easy enough to import as a race/track only bike.  See one of HD’s most attractive product lines fitted with Campagnolo brakes,

Replica 2008 Suzuki GSX-R250

So, it has been brought to our attention that this isn’t a 2008 GSx-R, or even a Suzuki.  It is actually a UM V2s.  I should have confirmed the model first, turns out that there hasn’t been a GSX-R250 since 1991.  This is a replica GSX-R if the seller knows it or not.  Thanks for bringing this to our attention Dave.

Located in Fayetteville, North Carolina is a very rare (For the US) 2008 Suzuki GSX-R250.  This GSX-R is assumed to be titled and registered as it has covered 2,700 miles and the dealer makes no mention of title issues.  Recently on eBay there was a dealer selling brand new Honda CBR125R models, combined with this, makes me curious how dealers are getting these in.  If you’d like a very rare, and new, 250cc bike; See the eBay ad here.

(1980) Kreidler Van Veen

Available in Tokyo, Japan is a Kreidler Van Veen, believed to be a 1980 model.  The earlier Kreidler 50cc racers are very sexy and although this one has a later body style, it is still quite cool looking.  The 50cc class used to be a major GP class because of it’s affordability and racing based on racer skill over power.  Kreidler was a major part of the 50cc gp class from the beginning until their importer Van Veen, took over carrying the marque until 1982.  I would expect this bike to be quite easy to import as a track only bike and the seller claims to have a container coming from Japan to Long Beach in the near future.  This Kreidler should be welcomed with open arms to any vintage motorcycle event.  See a website of the 50cc GP history here.  See the eBay ad for this gorgeous bike here.

EDIT: This bike failed to sell on 07/05/09 with a starting bid of $12,000.

Check Out my HockenheimRing Museum Pictures

I spent a couple weeks in Germany this past spring and I stopped by the HockenheimRing Museum. The museum is chocked full of motorcycles with just a few racecars on display. Here’s my write-up of the visit to the HockenheimRing Museum at my other blog.

Hope you enjoy and if you have any info on the models displayed, please feel free to either leave a comment below or click through the individual image on Flickr. Thanks!
