So for 2019 a classic vehicle will be any vehicle manufactured in 1979.

There some quite cool machines on Trademe at the moment.

A 1976 Suzuki TS125 for $2750

When I was young my father had a Suzuki TC100, basically the same machine except it had a dual range high/low gearbox.

1974 Honda SL125, currently at $4500 with reserve met

1976 Honda XL250, $4800


This one will be a classic in 2020

1980 Suzuki PE250 – $5500


This one has 4 years before it’s a classic

1983 Honda MTX200


there’s also a couple of XR500’s, including one like yours at $9k but I didn’t include those as they didn’t seem to have road kits fitted.
