Vintage Motorcycles for sale are listed below
Examples of my past restorations are in left menu (all sold)
If there is a bike your looking for, I usually can locate it.
I specialize in Vintage Husqvarna, but do many other brands.
My motorcycles are at the highest level of originality that I can achieve. Not like so many small businesses and home enthusiast’s, now building bikes who take the easy route, by buying as many replica parts they can. This makes it possible of reducing the bike to only 40% original. You also have the situation that created the story “Buy Beware” in my left menu.
The list of motorcycles below is what is for sale. Please note that the motorcycles listed for sale are sold only as restored motorcycles, unless noted. If your interested in any of the motorcycles, have your own that you would like to be restored, or looking for a certain one, send me email. I usually can locate almost any kind of motorcycle.
The restorations on left menu are a samples of my work and all are in private collections. I also listed below, the bikes from my own collection. If you just got to have that bike, make me an offer I can’t refuse. I am located in Poughkeepsie New York area. My restorations, as you will see from the photos, are of the highest quality and to the highest degree of originality that I can provide. I have spent a tremendous amount of time researching many of the Husky models, so when you get one of my motorcycles you can expect detail. I do not advertise some of the very minor details I put into my motorcycles, because it has taken a lot of time and money to find out what some of the most minor details are. Some people call it being anal, so I guess I am, relative to my motorcycles. I find this to be a lot of fun. When you buy one of my motorcycles you can expect a motorcycle with details to be exact or close to what was offered when it was new. I will also supply those details to anyone who buys one of my bikes along with complete photo record. You won’t be disappointed when you see how detailed I get. If you take a look at the 1153 400 Cross in the menu I show some of the details. Every bike will be different in parts used, relative to using NOS (New Old Stock) or restored parts.
When you buy my restoration, I supply photographs of the work as it progresses, so you will have documented proof.
Restoration costs start at $6000, plus the cost of the bike, for a small motorcycle and go up from there. Understand that majority of the market for restored motorcycles, are motorcycle restored by home owners or hobbyist who don’t usually get paid for their labor, and most of the time will take a loss on their investment. When it comes to professional storer, you have to pay the labor cost, and the out of pocket cost. So please understand, when you are dealing with professional restorer, who usually provides a much higher quality product than a hobbyist , the final motorcycle cost will be significantly different than the common market. When it comes to motorcycle with provenance, you need to realize these price can be astronomical at times.
When is comes to transport the customer is responsible for cost and I usually can help in setting up a company.
When is comes to payments, I am flexible with bikes under restoration.
How long does it take?
Normally I try to get it done in 3-4 months
A Few Testimonials
Thanks Rob, I love the bike! I am so glad I found you, this is really something special and you should be very proud of the extraordinary work you do. I will have much fun just sitting and looking. All the Best,Kevin
Rob, The 400 is simply spectacular. It is worth every penny and then some. I will send you photos of it soon in its new resting place. Please use me as a reference if ever needed. Simply amazing. Thanks, Dan
Hello Rob, This is a fantastic job you did. I’m very very happy !!! … and even my wife likes it , which is stunning…. Thanks for the pictures. I was going through them on Sunday. Interesting to see how you work! Ever yours, Patrick
Hi Rob, I received the bike yesterday. It looks better in life. You did an unbelievable job on the bike. My wife thought it was a brand new bike and not 36 years old. I would love to get the restoration photos. The detail on the bolts, stickers, straps. Really make it look like it came out of the production line yesterday. Although, I think they were built by hand. Again the bike looks great. Let me know what your next build is when you get a chance. I can’t wait to show to my friends. You are a true artist!!!!!!!!!! I really mean that. I wish I had your ability. Thank you again. I am very happy!, Rich
Rob, We had a vintage bike show here yesterday and the 400 Husky you built for me won “Best Overall”. There was a lot of interest in the bike.
Hi Rob, The bike is stunning and looks as good or better than new! Thanks for such outstanding workmanship.
I gotta admit, it looks spectacular. It really does. You are a frigging magician.
Hello Rob, I am back home and still starring at my new husky. Dream come true. I will touch base with you as soon as I shut my mouth. WOW
One of my customers, due to family crisis, had to sell one of my motorcycles 4 months after receiving. It sold at 30% profit.
Have no fear of doing business with Rob – he is superb – the restoration on my 1970 Aberg Husky 400 is faultless. Throughout the restoration Rob kept me informed by email and photos of the work he was doing. He also assisted me in finding the provenance for the bike through his extensive Husky contacts. He helped me put together its racing and Inter-Am series history with so much detail it has improved the value of the bike. This guy knows his stuff – thank you so very much! David – UK.
Rob, I know you’ve heard this before but you’re gonna hear it again now. When I was 17 back in 1973, I stood in the little showroom at Mesa Kawasaki-Husqvarna and stared at the new red & chrome tank Husky. I lusted after that 250WR that looked like the one Steve McQueen rode. I wanted it so bad but didn’t have the money as a young boy. Still, it thrilled me just to look at it. It still does. I put your bike in my trophy room where I walk by it often. You have allowed me to recapture a grand memory and feeling from my youth. This bike is just frigging magnificent! Thanks again Rob. Chip
I don’t just like it…It’s amazing. You are one incredibly talented guy Rob. I’m really just stunned how beautiful it turned out.
