You’ll find stacks more classic bikes for sale in the October issue of RealClassic magazine, including a British-built Bullet, a Big Zed, a Greeves trials iron and the customised 2003 Triumph T100 which carried adventurer Zoe Cano across America.
The descriptions are written by the vendors so obviously you should take all normal precautions before making a purchase: we recommend viewing in person whenever possible
Subscribers get first dibs at the Small Ads, so some of the bikes featured here may have sold already.
If you’d like to sell your classic / bike in RC, here’s the form to fill in.
(Adverts appear in the very next issue, and we don’t repeat them unless the seller asks us to)
