    The Honda CB450 S. From training bike to classic Just over the edge of the second half of the eighties of the last century. Does that sound classic enough?

    Doubt cases: The Kawasaki's LTD Z45O

    So the Kawasaki LTD. And if it's a Kawasaki LTD Z454 then it's almost the same thing but it's from the States. And if 25+ is 'classic', then such a Small Kawa custom can now be classic. But whether it is a classic? Or will? We saw a ZGAN copy sold this weekend […] Sea

    Electric Volvo Amazon combi
