Further cleanout of surplus vintage cars, motorcycles and parts: This is a no reserve auction and the Rokon will be sold regardless of price, on or off auction. This particular auction is for an authentic, original survivor, matching numbers 1973 Rokon 340RT Enduro motorcycle as shown. I would describe the condition as museum quality. It comes with the original 1973 Georgia title, original owners manual, original tool kit. I am the 2nd owner - it was purchased new by an old friend who willed it to me when he passed away and I have kept it stored unused in a climate controlled facility for the past 20 years. It is probably the best and lowest mileage Rokon anywhere. The odometer shows 4 miles but have no way of substantiating that. It may be correct and may not. If not it is certainly low mileage because there is absolutely zero wear on the foot pegs and other wear areas. It probably has been pushed around from place to place more than it has been ridden. When I got it I disassembled it and had the frame powder coated to the tune of $1000 - thought it would preserve the bike for a long time, forgetting the fact that I wouldn't be around that long (am 75 now). In reassembly everything was only cleaned - it did not need restoration. One item was replaced and that is the black leather tool bag. The original one was dried up and falling apart so a new one was professionally made using the old pieces for patterns. Same type thick saddlebag leather and rivets were used. Includes the original VDO odometer, magnified stop watch holder and magnified roll chart holder. Everything works. It starts, runs, stops just fine. Tires are the old originals and are age checked/cracked - not good for real riding but good for show. Way too fast for me. Serial number RT340170, making it the 170th one off the line. These bikes will be premium collector items in the future because of their American pedigree. The Rokon is the only Enduro bike ever made in the United States - (New Hampshire). They also made motocrossers and short trackers. Top quality and low low production. I will answer all email questions.

Aprilia has recently jumped into the motocross category with both feet by launching the new 2009 MXV450. A first for the company and the only V-Twin-equipped motocross bike in the world, the MXV 450 promises to combine a high-performance engine with authentic Italian style, light weight and advanced technology. Equipped with Aprilia’s 452cc electronic-fuel injected 77-degree V-Twin engine, the 450 MXV allows riders to choose between two ignition settings – a factory default setting that favors rideability, control and traction, thanks to the closed firing gap between the two cylinders, and the “Screamer” setting that modifies the firing gap, allowing for maximum engine performance up to the 12,500 rpm limit. The Dell’Orto fuel injection system is managed by a programmable electronic control unit (ECU) that allows riders to switch between hard/soft mappings at the touch of a button on the handlebars.Mon, 28 Feb 2011 00:00:00 -0800
As I’ve been gagging for the new race season to kick off so it was almost a pleasure getting up at stupid 0 clock to watch the World Superbike Championship opener at Phillip Island last weekend. I have to say Messrs Burnicle and Whitham were on form although I was disappointed there were none of the usual verbal attacks on each other that always add to the entertainment. I’m sure they will put things right soon but the world superbike regulars must have been disheartened that Moto GP veterans nailed five of the six available rostrum slots.Mon, 17 Oct 2011 00:00:00 -0700
