Just completed our first purchase with "Motoauct". We had met Jason at the IMS show at Long Beach and viewed the website for new listings. This resulted in our purchase of a beautiful Moto Guzzi. The bidding and closing transactions were seamless. Looking forward to doing business with "Motoauct" in the future. Thanks again Jason. Steve and Dana
Just joined the group and I'm excited to see how things go with this site. These are a few of my bikes. I enjoy the usual and unusual and currently working on a couple of 1973 Suzuki GT550's which one will need to go. I hope being in Canada does not deter folks from considering bikes from here as we have a lot of winter and many nice examples that sit in storage 6 to 7 months a year. Importing them is a breeze as we have don't have title issues as our bill of sale document is considered title for our government. The 1970 CT70's I did the restoration on them.
Nice little line up of bikes there! Nice job on the CT70's. Gonna be Selling that Hercules any time soon?04-12-2017 00:34:49

I'd like to add to this social page. This was my 1977 Ducati 900 GTS. I purchased this bike in Simi Valley, CA from a dealership of all places. It showed an amazing 6500 original miles on the clock. It needed a thorough going through after I purchased it. Someone had replaced the ignition system with an Lucas Rita system. It had failed at some point, which is why, I'm guessing it was for sale. Parts are nearly impossible to source for these odd ball Italian beauties. The carbs suffered from years of sitting with old fuel leaking into them from the lacquered tank and inoperative fuel valves. The tires were cracked and flat-spotted from sitting in one place for a decade. Despite all of that, the bones were there. After stripping that ugly seat, and sourcing a new ignition system, in addition to so many other things on the list, this bike owes me a ton of money. No matter. It will never be sold. It rides like a dream. Endless hours of carving the twisties and some long range touring have made this bike among my favorite on the short list of bikes I think everyone should own. As they become increasingly more rare, I'd advise scooping one up in any condition when you see one.
Oh, the things we choose to part with. This was a 100% original 1969 Norton Commando 750 S. I bought it from the original owner who said he never got along with it, so chose to ride his 69 Triumph instead. I found this years ago, sitting in a shed, next to his old, clapped out Triumph. I wasn't going home without it. These old 750s made immense power for the day. Museum quality in every way...sadly I let it go. Reflecting back on all of the bikes I've let go over the years, this one should have remained. Maybe in the next life!
Isn't that the way it goes! You never fully appreciate them until they are gone. Reminiscing gets me every single time.15-10-2017 19:52:23
1958 Honda Benly JC58. I picked this sweety up, in critical condition. Spent a year tearing her all they way down and bringing her back to life. A true joy to restore. Not too many of these gems left.
Here is the genesis to the Motoauct idea. We were selling this bike at Bonhams Auctions in Las Vegas in early 2016. It is a 1955 Honda Dream 4e. A very rare bike, one of less than 10 known to still exist. As we walked the floor of the pre-auction sale, looking over the sea of vintage motorcycles on offer, we pondered the idea of a "brick and mortar" auction, but that idea had been done, and was being done. The idea struck, and we asked ourselves, why not have an online vintage motorcycle auction site? Days later, after the fog lifted from several days in Vegas, Motoauct was born.
Unique and beautiful bike. Reminds me of a Peugeot.23-11-2017 06:54:46
My First restoration! 1969 Honda CA160. A complete rust bucket, barn find. I tend to over restore these old Hondas. Slowly becoming my trademark.
Hello Dflanary, thank you for message! yes, I forget which site I used, as it was quite awhile ago. I was able to locate the correct color code. It was a fun restoration. Every bike show I took it to, it won People’s choice or best in show. It truly was a piece of jewelry.06-12-2017 19:43:34
