*Bike quality

It is one of the hardest jobs to convey the subjective condition of a vintage motorcycle through a computer. We restore and sell quality motorcycles in different stages and conditions. Keep in mind that Vintage motorcycles are very photogenic and will ALWAYS need attention and care.
If we list a motorcycles as “vintage”, the following is what you should expect:
Trailer Queen or Show Quality  = This is a top rating given to motorcycles that have gone through professional restorations have and have been very well kept or are in top original survivor condition.
Racer Quality = These are collector vehicles that are in good enough shape to be a proud owner and is in good running condition that can be use for racing. Racer Quality does not mean “ready to race”. Most motorcycles will need SOMETHING adjusted, tweaked, modified, replaced, repaired by YOU before you ride or race it.
Investment Quality = Mid top range for a vintage motorcycle that is worthy of collecting. Is solid and well kept through-out and has value in its originality and condition, which is expected to appreciate with time.
Project Quality = We very rarely offer projects and as the word implies these are motorcycles that need extended amounts of work and restoration.


We crate all bikes ourselves with custom boxes built to ensure proper fit and reduce shipping cost. We can ship the bike as is or part by part if necessary. Just let us know how you want it and we will quote accordingly (see packing and crating pictures).
Shipping costs and local taxes are the buyer’s responsibility.

We can help to optimize shipping cost with our freight forward vendors.
