Auction Alert: This 1977 Honda XR75 Has No Reserve

Auction Alert: This 1977 Honda XR75 Has No Reserve You meet the nicest people in the dirt on a Honda. Bikes that seem like they’ve been loved are my favorites—and while this 1977 Honda XR 75 on Bring A Trailer certainly shows wear, it’s exactly the kind you’d expect. The kind you’d hope for, even. According to BAT, it has only had two owners since new—the first of whom stored it in a San Fernando Valley garage for most of its life after their daughter didn’t embark on the motocross adventures her parents had planned.

The 1982 Honda RS1000 Racer fetched an impressive ¥9,632,000, or around $88,758USD. That, in and of itself, isn’t surprising—the predicted estimate by BH Auctions prior to sale was ¥10,000,000 (around $92,180 USD) and the final amount was only slightly below that.

What is slightly surprising is that of the beautiful bikes on offer at this auction, only five sold. That means 12 are still listed as available for sale on the BH Auction Suzuka 8 Hours website.
