Giancarlo Sulmonte’s parents didn’t really want him riding on the road so, like any good teenager would, he manipulated the situation. He bought a dirt bike and then promptly converted it into a street racer. His 1973 Yamaha DT250 was wasting away in his friend’s dad’s garage. Sulmonte, then 19, was working on a car project at the time. He thought it was a pretty cool bike but didn’t think about it for a few months. One day he got up the nerve to call his friend’s dad and offer $300. The man countered with $150 (why can’t this happen to all of us?) and Sulmonte took it home...

"A few years back when I was about 18, the vintage motorcycle bug, in the form of a 1976 Suzuki GT250 bit me hard. The bike was out for sale a few miles from my house, and man was she sexy. Running and in very nice shape for its age, she was begging to be mine. I spoke with the guy and swapped him a paltry $75 bucks for my soon to be freedom machine. In my then blissful ignorance, before I bought it, he told me 'it doesn't have a title, but you can just go get one.' HA! To this day I wish it were that easy..."

On June 18, 2016, Carlos Colonia officially went in over his head. After a bad break up he was looking for something to keep himself occupied and he thought a motorcycle rebuild project was a good idea. He spent four weeks scouring Craigslist for the right bike and the same listing kept coming up over and over: A 1977 BMW R100 for $500 (OBO). It was a rolling chassis and a box filled with engine parts...

Growing up, Kevin Wilbeck always had motorcycles – a Honda 100, a CB350 and a CB550 in college. He always wanted a 750 Super Sport but didn’t get it until a few years ago when he re-entered motorcycling after noticing how big the vintage motorcycle scene was getting in Des Moines, Iowa. He bought a 1978 Honda 750 Super Sport for $1400 with 6100 miles..

In 1978, lots of things were going on. Fonzi was jumping the shark, production of the VW Beetle was finally halted, and gold reached an all time high of $200 per ounce. Also, following the energy crisis, Japanese vehicle imports accounted for half of the US import market. These imports included the mighty Kawasaki KZ1000. These bikes were a story in their own right, but July’s bike of the month winner has a special story...

For $200, Dayton, Ohio’s Kyle Nearing scored this 1975 Honda CB550, which had been rotting in a Midwestern yard for untold years. The motor had been removed but the price was right. At first, Nearing, whose only other bike has been a 2007 Yamaha R6, didn’t completely tear down the CB550. Instead, he got it running and installed new handlebars and an exhaust and rode it in the rough shape it was...
