Want a sweet treat that's 107 years old?

If you’re looking for an interesting and lovely pre-war British motorcycle, this 1913 Rex-JAP may just fit the bill. Some details have been lost to the unforgiving winds of time, but it’s believed to have been modified as a racer back in the day. Right now, in the last quarter of 2020, it’s up for auction and looking for a new home.

2016 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid: What You Need to Know

  2016 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid: What You Need to Know The 2016 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid has incredible acceleration, athletic handling, and a stately cabin, yet it sits in the lower half of our luxury midsize SUV rankings. It has high ownership costs, subpar fuel economy for a hybrid, and a small cargo space. The 2016 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid is ranked: #4 in 2016 Hybrid SUVs #10 in Used Hybrid SUVs $30K and up Is the 2016 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid a Good Used SUV? There's no denying the 2016 Cayenne Hybrid is an exceptional vehicle, boasting sporty performance and a posh interior. But it will cost you more to buy this Porsche than it will to purchase most other luxury midsize SUVs.

Although it’s 107 years old, you can see that it’s been well cared-for over the past century. The fuel tank and rear stand were refinished sometime between 2012 and now by the current seller, who is including paintwork receipts and a California bill of sale with purchase. Paint is two-tone green with red and gold accents, and it wears nickel-plated wire-spoke wheels with mixed period-look tires that have cracked sidewalls. This very bike made an appearance at the Quail Motorcycle Gathering in 2015.

The J.A. Prestwich name may be familiar to fans of pre-war British motorcycles, but the compound Rex-JAP may not be as well known. These bikes were produced for only a short window of time between 1912 and 1916, by the Rex firm based in Coventry. They built frames and exclusively used JAP single and V-twin engines, which resulted in this nomenclature. The earliest ones were belt-driven, but by 1914, were entirely chain-driven. There was some talk about a future shaft-driven model in the works, but Rex did not come out as a going concern on the other side of WWI.

2017 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid: What You Need to Know

  2017 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid: What You Need to Know The 2017 Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid finishes in the top half our luxury midsize SUV rankings. It boasts a posh cabin, sprightly acceleration, and precise handling. It also earns a great predicted reliability rating. That said, the Cayenne Hybrid’s cramped cargo area hurts its appeal. The 2017 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid is ranked: #2 in 2017 Hybrid SUVs #3 in Used Hybrid SUVs $30K and up Is the 2017 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid a Good Used SUV? The 2017 Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid is a marvelous luxury midsize SUV that delivers on both the luxury and performance fronts.

This particular bike is powered by a 680cc sidevalve JAP V-twin, which is mated to a three-speed rear hub. It features a hand-operated oil pump, a rear brake, bicycle-type pedals to start it rolling, and a sprung solo saddle. Probable racing modifications include a Brampton bi-flex fork and boardtracker-style drop handlebars. It has a front rim brake operated by the right-hand lever, and a rear brake operated by the right foot pedal.

The seller notes that they have not started this bike since acquiring it in 2012, so the winning bidder will want to do some safety checks before riding it. It’s located in Santa Barbara, California, and the auction ends on Wednesday, October 28, 2020 at 12:45pm Pacific. Bidding is up to $9,200 at the time of writing.

Rare 1986 Ford RS200 Evolution With Modern Updates Up For Sale .
The recent upgrades alone cost over $200,000. Any time an original Ford RS200 comes up for sale, it's a big deal. That's because only 146 of the original 200 production cars were sold, but this isn't a standard production car. It's one of 24 Evolution models with the 2.1-liter engine and a host of other enhancements versus the standard Ford. However, it's been further tweaked through the years by various owners and it could be the best street-going RS200 you can get. And it's for sale. This RS200 Evo is offered through Canepa in California and before you ask, no we don't know the price.
