No Reserve: 1979 Laverda 1000 Jarama

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

This 1979 Laverda 1000 Jarama was sold new in Illinois in 1980 and was recently acquired by the selling dealer from a collector in Oregon. Power is provided by an air-cooled 980cc triple with dual overhead camshafts, and drive is sent to the rear wheel via a 5-speed transmission with chain drive. The bike has been refinished in a custom black and orange scheme and is fitted with a Don Vesco faring and Brembo disc brakes. This Laverda is now offered by the selling dealer in Oregon at no reserve with a clean Illinois title.

No Reserve: 1979 Laverda 1000 Jarama

An included dealer key tag indicates that the bike was originally green, though it has been refinished in a custom two-tone black and orange scheme. The front faring is a Don Vesco item which houses the headlight, turn signals, and a set of integrated mirrors. The original headlight housing is present behind the faring, and a blanking plate is fitted in lieu of a headlamp. A crack is shown in the left side cover, and other imperfections are shown in the gallery.

A walk-around video is viewable above. The 18″ aluminum wheels are fitted with an older Michelin rear tire and Dunlop front, and braking is handled by twin front and a single rear Brembo disc brake. A set of adjustable Street Stroke coilover assemblies are fitted at the rear.

Instrumentation consists of a 150-mph speedometer and a 10k-rpm tachometer, with warning lights integrated into the individual instrument housings. The tachometer is not currently working, though the seller had it working briefly during his ownership. Approximately 12,900 miles are shown on the 5-digit odometer.

Power is provided by a 980cc three-cylinder engine with dual overhead camshafts, two valves per cylinder, and triple 32mm Dell’Orto carburetors. The seller describes a leak from one of the fuel shutoffs in certain positions, and notes that the faring makes the choke challenging to reach. Power is sent to the rear wheel via a 5-speed transmission with chain drive.

No Reserve: 1979 Laverda 1000 Jarama

The chassis tag is pictured above, and the matching serial numbers on the frame and engine case are shown in the gallery. The tag notes that the bike was built in September 1977, though the bike is titled as a 1979 on the 1980-issue Illinois title.

No Reserve: 1959 Harley-Davidson Hummer 125

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

This 1959 Harley-Davidson Hummer is a 125cc single-cylinder two-stroke motorcycle based on the DKW RT125. Following the Second World War DKW’s patents were released to the allies, and copies of the DKW were also made in the UK as the BSA Bantam, and in the Soviet Union as the MMZ M-1A Moskva, or Minsk.  This example has been with the current owner for 15 years, and a recent engine rebuild, reportedly with new-old-stock parts, included a new piston, bearings, and seals. This Harley-Davidson Hummer is now offered at no reserve on behalf of the current owner with an Oregon bill of sale.

No Reserve: 1959 Harley-Davidson Hummer 125

Though the American-made, single-cylinder two-stroke bikes are colloquially known as Hummers, only the lightweight 125cc Harley models made from 1955-1959 were actually branded as such. The basic DKW design was outfitted with a Harley-designed tank and fenders upon release as the Model 125 in 1948. This example is finished in red with white accents and a black frame and per the seller, has not been refinished.

No Reserve: 1959 Harley-Davidson Hummer 125

The bike is equipped with a rigid rear-end and a sprung seat at the rear, and a telescopic front fork which was introduced in 1951. Braking is handled by mechanical drums front and rear, and the 18″ wheels are finished in black and fitted with 3.50″ Firestone tires.

No Reserve: 1959 Harley-Davidson Hummer 125

This model is not equipped with a speedometer or a battery, and the upper plate on the triple clamp carries the Hummer name. Handlebar mounted controls include just a hand throttle and the clutch and brake levers. The seller estimates that about 3,000 miles have been added under current ownership.

No Reserve: 1959 Harley-Davidson Hummer 125

While Harley’s other DKW-based models moved to a 165cc engine in 1953, the Hummer model carried over the earlier 125cc powerplant, which is paired with a 3-speed transmission. Hummers were built with a basic electrical system, with magneto ignition and no battery. This example was recently rebuilt by the current owner with a new piston, bearings, and seals. A factory air filter assembly has been retained, and close-up photos are provided of the engine case, cooling fins, and other driveline components.

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.

No Reserve: 1969 Triumph Bonneville T120

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

This 1969 Triumph Bonneville T120 was refurbished by the previous owner in Colorado just prior to the seller’s purchase two years ago.

This Bonneville is offered with records of the refurbishment and a clean Colorado title in the seller’s name.

Reads the ad: “I have been collecting classic cars, bikes, and vintage boats for a long time. The time has come to downsize and sell some things as I’m out of storage space.

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. Only 349 built, so it is rare enough to make the time and cost to restore worthwhile. $10k.” Binz Benzes are indeed rare and cool.
