No Reserve: 1982 Honda CB900C Custom

This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This 1982 Honda CB900C Custom was traded by the first owner to the selling dealer 6 months ago. The bike is powered by a 902cc DOHC 4-cylinder with a dual range 5-speed transmission and shaft drive, and the selling dealer recently performed a mechanical inspection with new spark plugs and an oil change. Just under 13k miles are shown, and the seller has added approximately 200 since the work was completed. This CB900C is now offered by the selling dealer at no reserve with the owner’s manual, factory tool kit, and a rebuilt Wisconsin title.

The bike is finished in Candy Empire Blue, and the seat and fuel tank were reportedly replaced in 1990 due to vandalism, resulting in the rebuilt title. Features include a 4-into-4 exhaust, triple disc brakes, and air adjustable suspension.

The underside of the mufflers shows corrosion and signs of a previous welding repair. No service records are available, but the selling dealer has performed a mechanical inspection with new spark plugs and an oil change. A walk around video can be seen below.

Square Four w/ Double Adult: 1954 Ariel “Squariel” & Tandem Sidecar

This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This 1954 Ariel Square Four comes attached to an ultra-cool Canterbury tandem seat sidecar and what looks like most of its original furnishings. Powered by one of the most unusual engines ever dropped between two wheels, the “Squariel” features what’s in essence two OHC parallel twins occupying the same crankcase. These MkIIs (introduced the previous year) had separate cylinder barrels and four exhaust pipes as opposed to the monobloc and twin pipe setup of the MkI, but both designs utilized dual, geared crankshafts and a single cylinder head, and Squariels were some of the fastest bikes in Europe during the era. This one looks like it could be a survivor or an older restoration–either way it’s super cool, super unusual and would likely be a great way to strike up conversations at your next local cruise-in. Find it here at Yesterdays in Nederweert, Netherlands for 14,950 euros (~$16,500 USD today). Special thanks to BaT reader Kyle K. for this submission.

Square Four w/ Double Adult: 1954 Ariel "Squariel" & Tandem Sidecar

The pair exhibit the sort of warm, gentle patina typical of machinery left unattended in a clean, quiet corner of a garage or workshop for a long time–virtually all of brightwork is dulled and paint could use a good compounding, but there’s nothing which suggests that the duo have been neglected or abused. No word is given on when the bike was last started or taken out on the road.

Square Four w/ Double Adult: 1954 Ariel "Squariel" & Tandem Sidecar

There were a large number of sidecar manufacturers in Postwar Britain, and Canterbury and Watsonian were two of the more prominent. These rather awkwardly named “Double Adult” models were constructed over a steel tube frame and featured tandem bench seating for two, a single entry door, a small trunk, no less than seven windows, and a removable canvas roof for the occasional sunny day. An outboard wheel brake was an available option, but it’s not clear whether this one is so equipped.

Square Four w/ Double Adult: 1954 Ariel "Squariel" & Tandem Sidecar

The door looks big enough for easy entry, and we’re guessing the front seat back folds down for access to the rear bench. Legroom for both occupants looks generous, with a bit of extra room for a couple of small bags.

Square Four w/ Double Adult: 1954 Ariel "Squariel" & Tandem Sidecar

The engine is essentially two parallel twins sharing a crankcase. It displaces 1000cc and powers the Ariel with roughly 40 horsepower and a good deal of torque–these machines were known to be capable of getting underway from a standstill in top (4th) gear. They could also easily surpass the 100 mph mark, though we’d imagine even going half that speed in a flimsy old sidecar would be equal parts fun and terrifying.

From the ad: “1960 Mercedes-Benz 190b Kombi by Korrosserie Binz. Mercedes didn’t build their own wagons in those days, so they were special ordered through an outside coachbuilder. This was a California car that was purchased on the European Delivery Program. Unfortunately, it was poorly stored for years outside in LA, and now needs a complete restoration.
