Reserve not met: Ebay goodies.

Item number: 300139985122/ 1966 Honda : CB 160 Cafe Racer:

"Bike is street legal with title in my name although I have let the registration expire as I haven't been driving the bike. Bike fires right up, runs great. Needs to be cleaned and detailed. The engine is entirely stock and modifications to original 160 format are cosmetic. The pipes are modified stock pieces, shortened and capped. For those who know 160's you know they are a blast and a comlete riot. Fires at 360 degrees, thus sounds like a baby triumph. In my opinion, these are better than 250/305 super hawk with a lighter, more racy feel. I broke the odometer cable and odometer may need repair. The actual miles are less than 7,000. Sold as is where is without warranty and reserve right to end auction early. Successful bidder responsible for picking-up/shipping. PS: the part seen on the ground is the smaller fairing system that goes around the front of the engine and bolts to the main fairing, to further fair-in the motorcycle. The fairing is made of very high quality fiberglass, with glassed in metal mounting tube frame, all in excellent condition, considering age and usage."

Item number: 190137985976/ "Nortley Fartster":

"This is a hard core cafe racer in the rocker style of the 1960s. A 1988 1200 Harley sportster engine in a Norton wideline featherbed frame. It will probably eat a Norvin, yet be a lot easier and cheaper to keep running. 28000 miles on engine before transplant. Engine is stock except for S&S carb, Crane ignition with Nology coils and wires, Sputhe compression releases, and a custom made kick starter, probably the only one to be found on an evo sporty. It usually starts first kick. Norton commando forks, Suzuki water buffalo 4 shoe front brake, Excel rims, stainless spokes. Wheels built by Buchanan. Brakes trued and relined by Metal Frictions. Dunlop tires. Works Performance rear shocks. X ring chain, Scottoiler. The bulk of the small fittings are custom made. The machine was custom built over a period of years, and further developed since its first run in 2001. The machine is offered as is, complete, with warts and all. The paint is rough. Straight clip ons and special tools to maintain the bike are included. Do a Google search on Nortley Fartster to see more"
