I was watching some James Bond movie the other day and his Aston Martin had machine guns hidden behind the headlamps…which was cool, but only when he pressed some hidden button and popped up those Gatling barrels to smoke some baddies. If you want the experience of having twin rotating machine guns exposed all the […]
This next feature is for a pair of older BMW motorcycles and comes as a tip from David who says; Not a car, but an astonishing BMW deal anyway. Seriously, an amazing deal for any airhead. I’m not a motorcycle guy, but I will say that there is one that looks older and has an aircooled flat-two-cylinder engine and the other is newer (but not newish) and looks like the future from 1988. The few times I’ve driven (ridden?) a motorcycle was terrifying and exciting — but the best part to me would be the lost cost of entry and the fact that I could have like 10 of them in the garage before the wife figured out that it wasn’t just one in pieces.

Legendary motorcycle racer Jorge Orwell said it best; “Four wheels good, two wheels better! All machines are equal. But some machines are more equal than others.” Nobody will argue that bikes are fast(er?)…but tipper Erik202 sent in this next two wheeled speed machine and asked the question; this one goes 186mph and does a 10.4sec 1/4 mile and only costs $2063USD. Is it possible to go faster for less money? Find this 2004 Suzuki GSX-R offered for $2700 CAD ($2063 USD) via the facefarm marketbarn.
This next item really hits the hipster bike paradigm right in the solar plexus — it is a fixed speed, covered in vintage patina, and its cost outpaces its usability by a few hundred miles. However, it is such a spellbinding piece of fake-history that I’d be willing to risk being kidnapped and eaten by the log cabin-living, bear skin rug and Greco-Roman bust collector to buy this thing…but wait…it comes in its own shipping crate…so perhaps this isn’t as risky as I first assumed. Find this 1904 Indian Replica offered for $1500 in Brighton, MI via eBay.
This next car…errr…two wheeler…comes from tipper Brad who writes: I thought you might dig this very interesting (presumably rare) little motorbike—although I cannot recall whether you are a cars-only outlet…This old cycle definitely deserves the label survivor, esp. considering it was produced in Europe just as WW2 was getting underway. It seems like all the […]
Motorcycles aren’t exactly the safest mode of transportation…even small contact can have huge consequences (which is why people in 4 wheel vehicles should always give them plenty of room), but at least the motorcycle is small and maneuverable. However, if you add a sidecar to a motorcycle, you still have the same crash exposure, but […]
This next car comes as a tip from SecondMouse who writes: I suppose it takes an unusual find to make it into DT if the item in question isn’t an automobile, but perhaps this will do. Here is a rare and excellent example of a 1956 Indian Arrow. Offered from a private collection with some […]
This next car comes as a tip from Hugh who writes: This is a pretty amazing bike, a Ducati tuned to be slow and reliable for the Swiss army. Cheap too! Find this 1972 Ducati Condor A350 Swiss Military Motorcycle offered for $3,500 here on eBay buy-it-now in Middletown, RI. From the seller: 1973 Ducati Condor A350 Swiss Military […]
We were supposed to have flying cars by now. Everyone promised it. I’ve watched Blade Runner and Running Man many times (both were set in a 2019 future) and they showed all kinds of hovering and flying cars, but here I am and the closest thing is a LiteStar/Pulsar that was built in the 1980s. […]
The Pontiac Fiero is literally the Rodney Dangerfield of the car world- it get’s no respect. In high school, the Fiero was voted the car most likely to be turned into something else. DT has featured too many Fiero based replica Ferrari’s or Lambo’s to count, but today’s feature goes into a completely different direction. […]
