Great project bikes from £ 600

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Retro Special 2017 -

Tri­umph Bon­neville

Great for Al­most any­thing A real all-rounder. If you want to change lots go pre-2006 when they had carbs but def­i­nitely go pre-2011 as the can­bus sys­tem makes cus­tomis­ing tough.

Ex­pect to pay £3000-£ 7000

Har­ley-david­son XL1000

Great for Hard­tail chops The ‘ Iron­head’ sport­ster doesn’t have the ku­dos of the big-twins from the time, so they’re a lot cheaper and the per­for­mance dif­fer­ence isn’t huge. Ex­pect to pay £2000-£4000

BMW R100

Great for Street track­ers One of the first bikes to take the cus­tom world by storm, the BMWS have gone up in value now but they’re sim­ple to work on and the en­gines are ca­pa­ble of huge miles. Ex­pect to pay £1000-£3000

Yamaha XS650

Great for Bob­bers Some call it the great­est Tri­umph ever made and the engine is a peach. If you want to get in deep, the crank can be re­phrased to 270 giv­ing it a V-twin rum­ble. Ex­pect to pay £2000-£4500
