132929 / 2004 Honda Valkyrie Rune

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/79c2db8 In 1995, Honda shocked motorcycle enthusiasts by unveiling a radical new concept bike at the Tokyo Motor Show. Named the Zodia, it was the first major indicator that something new was underway at Honda Worldwide. Phrases like "a blend of classic and modern styling" are commonly used but Honda took this ideal to an extreme. The Zodia looked downright intergalactic. Fast forward a few auto shows and another radical Honda concept debuts: The T2. It borrowed heavily from Zodia engineering but placed it in a more earthly context. The standard V-twin was also swapped out in favor of a Goldwing-derived flat-six. The combination hit all the right chords with the buying public. In fact, response was so strong that, in 2003, the T2 hit the streets, virtually unmodified, as the Valkyrie Rune. If you missed your first chance to buy a Rune, this pristine 1,100-mile example may be exactly what your garage is lacking. The Rune is one of those rare production bikes that shows like a full custom. As one of a very small number produced, you could probably even pretend it's custom without getting your cover blown by another one pulling up beside you. The bike rides on timeless five-spoke wheels wrapped in 150/60/18 and 180/55/17 Dunlop tires, respectively. Fat fenders, complete with hand-painted pinstripes, tuck those tires, making the bike look lower than it actually is. The long and low look is further aided by a seamless 6.2 gallon tank that also houses recessed glare-resistant digital gauges while a solid Trimtab fairing helps reduce drag. All body pieces, including the unique curved radiator housing, are painted in a deep coat of black. For contrast, Honda brought in tons of chrome and stainless surfaces including the clutch master cylinder, brake master cylinder, headlight, and radiator cover. A large carbon vinyl gunfighter-style seat provides rider comfort while vertical LED taillights flush-mounted into the rear fender finish off the custom look. With such dramatic styling, it's easy to overlook the level of engineering at play on this bike. Under the mass of black lies an aluminum diamond-shaped frame featuring a 68.9-inch wheelbase. To put that in perspective, Honda's Goldwing is only 66.5 inches. As far as production bikes go, this one is big. A unique trailing bottom-link front suspension redirects axle load through two upper shocks. One houses the main spring while the other holds a sub-spring and damping system. A race-bred rear suspension places the upper shock mount within the swingarm instead of the frame, offering unparalleled rigidity and handling. Braking is handled by dual 330mm front and single 336mm rear discs. With the Rune's innovative Linked Brake System, braking is progressive and easily controllable. The center piston of the three-piston front calipers is only activated when the rear brakes are applied, saving maximum stopping power for when it's totally necessary. Without a fairly stout engine, that sort of braking power would be pure overkill. Fortunately, that's not the case here. The Rune features a liquid-cooled, horizontally-opposed, fuel-injected, 1832cc flat-six-cylinder engine delivering 97.4hp and 112.1 lb. ft. of torque at the wheel. Not only does the flat-six generate enough power to push the Rune all the way to 123mph, it does so with one of the greatest stock Exhaust notes a motorcycle has ever produced. Power is fed to the rear wheel via a smooth-shifting five-speed transmission and an impressively quiet shaft-drive. Form and function rarely cohabitate but this engine is an exception. Chrome valve covers and a unique six-into-two Exhaust system offer a tasteful dose of muscle car flair. The best part? All of this is backed by Honda engineering and dependability. Though it may look like an intimidating bike, you can rest assured that nothing leaves a Honda plant without being user-friendly and dead nuts reliable. While the motorcycle world is chock-full of wild looking eye-catching bikes, it would be difficult to find one as magnetic and well-engineered as the Rune. A full nine years after its introduction, the design is still fresh and appealing, making it that much more difficult to believe it was ever a production bike. If you like the idea of a limited-production bike that will snap necks and provide years of trouble-free cruising, give this one a second look.

135847 / 1950 Mercury Coupe
THIS VEHICLE HAS SOLD! http://www.rkmotorscharlotte.com/sales/inventory/active/1950%20Mercury%20Co upe/135847 Dressing a modern small block and four forward gears in a razor-sharp restoration, this sophisticated Mercury Eight is more than just sweet eye candy. And if you’re the kind of buyer who’s searching for a stunning, all-steel hot rod, we can’t think of anything that offers more style for less money! Storming the scene just a few short years ago, this slick street rod has been lovingly finessed to the absolute highest standards. The smooth surfaces that make up the car’s voluptuous profile are comprised of clean Henry Ford steel that’s been completely stripped, carefully aligned and laboriously block-sanded. That solid shell, dressed in PPG gold base, basted in PPG Cinnamon Candy and sealed in PPG clear, has been buffed to a wet-looking shine. And today, this Merc rolls as one excellent-looking custom that’s completely devoid of filler, questionable seams, strange bulges or anything else that might demerit its otherwise superior construction. Lift the car’s domed hood and you’ll find 5.7 liters of spry LS1 small block that, produced in 1998, creates upwards of 305 horsepower. Behind that mill, a GM 4L60E 4-speed jerks a familiar Ford 8-inch axle. That drivetrain rolls in classic Ford skeleton that’s been augmented with a quality Fat Man front-clip. That clip frames Unisteer power rack-and-pinion steering. Power front disc and rear drum brakes provide predictably solid stops. And, at the corners of the car, 15-inch Billet Specialties wheels twist 225/75 Dean Alpha 365 whitewalls. This lights-out Mercury is one of the coolest cruisers on the planet!

2016 Honda Look Set To Build The Barking Bulldog
Video Honda Look Set To Build The Barking Bulldog. In an era when every new bike seems to be battling to pack more high-tech gadgets and gizmos than its rivals, Honda’s Bulldog concept is a refreshingly utilitarian beast, and the latest patents suggest it could be heading for production. Revealed in March this year at the Osaka Motorcycle Show, the Bulldog was inexplicably tagged by Honda as a “Lovable Touring Partner” but – silly name aside – it wasn’t short of appeal. Sporting the sort of rugged ugliness that has worked so well for generations of BMW GSs, it was based on the Japanese-market CB400F, a sleeved-down version of the CB500F sold here. Using a stock frame, suspension and engine, the Bulldog’s innovation came from its styling – with 15in wheels and tough metal frames around all its vulnerable parts, it’s effectively a scaled-up version of the Zoomer and Big Ruckus scooters. Yes, it’s got some sensible ideas despite the mad looks, like large luggage lockers on either side of the fuel tank. Given the number of production components in the bike, from day one it looked like it stood a decent chance of reaching showrooms, and the latest pictures show subtle differences that make it even closer to a viable production machine. It’s a complete-looking machine, with just a couple of indications that it’s not quite ready – the front ABS sensor doesn’t line up, and the tyres are still handmade one-offs.
