outlaws justice - that is a heck of a collection, nice time-warp you have there. I think I'da kept the Nighthawk S, I liked those - except for the funny front wheel size.

I owned an Aprilia RST 1000 'Futurama' for 4 years - pretty unusual to most folks "What IS that ?" all the TIME.

I DO miss it a little. I know some day it will appear on a "Cool bikes the we Covet" list next to a Black Shadow or something and I'll curse my stupidity, but it did have some issues.

Never selling the HawkGT though.

Super-Sweet Duc, Spezjag - I'd love to have a chance to ride one of those some day.

ive always liked the oddballs. in the past my most odd bikes were an '86 honda NS400R and '88 NX650.

currently ive got a '90 honda CB-1. only imported two years. that wasnt odd enough so i revised it a bit:



and even more odd is my '85 suzuki SP600. only sold one year in the US only. rest of the world got a DR600 version.

I think the rarest would be my current bike, a Yamaha TRX850. Sold in europe between 1996-1998, pretty rare where I live, I haven't met another TRX yet. Italian-influenced design with the tubular frame and a 270-degr crank, sounds nice


I also had a Suzuki GSX400 FWS for a while, a liquid cooled 4-cyl with IIRC 55-ish hp. Rare?

Dave, is this my VTR or another one you had?

That said, I guess I've owned a few oddballs;

1986 Honda Reflex (TLR200) - not rare but not common either
1989 Honda NX125 - I know of only a couple of other people, thru this forum site, that have one.
1989 Honda VTR250 Interceptor (as above but without the Barbie-ceptor paint job) - again, not rare but not very common.
1963 Vespa GS160 (as seen on the cover of the Who's Quadrophenia album cover sans all the lights & bars) - pretty rare and difficult to find parts.

Of those mentioned above, I only have the VTR now.

This is the first one I owned, had only 3,000 original miles when I sold it, yours was the second one. Not fond of the paint on this one either, but was factory original, and that is something I always look for when I do not know the history of the bike personally.

Rarest- in terms of production numbers, is probably my road racer- a 1995 Honda RS250R



Most unusual, and reasonably rare but not amazingly so, is my Kawasaki kt250, presently undergoing restoration.

Cool2 If I could have all my old bikes and Cars back, I would'nt be able to afford the ins.

The 1987 YSR 80 was the most unusual and the first bike I ever High sided! The 69 Triumph Trident 750 is probably the rarest. I did have a Barn Find 68 Ducati Scrambler, but I never had time to restore it and sold it before I ever rode it!

Guess I kan't resist playing this game.
1989 SDR200 Japanese Domestic Market only. As far as I know there are (3) in the USA.


1998 GasGas EC250SM
The only thing that makes it rare is the SuperMoto conversion and the California street plate.

And a couple of unusual 50cc SuperMotards. A 2002 GasGas EC50sm and a 2002 Derbi Senda SuperMoto.

I think they got BIG BIRD's attention, if not the tourists taking pictures in front of the Las Vegas sign.
I have a few more to share if this game continues.
