His SR250 sold last year for $52,800.00 with fees. Interested to see what the 125 will sell for.

Moto Armoury has a bunch of Wards bikes. I had thought some were on loan. I understand most of the bikes at Moto Armoury were from the old Primm collection. Either way if you ever get a chance go see what they have there. Pretty incredible.

The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value.

Damn....I would love to be in a position to buy that! Wonder why is says 1985 when it is a 1984? It had the pre-production KIPS valves on it, and major hand made trickness! I was a huge Wardy fan, and here are a few pics I took from Redbud National in 1984. I have posted them before, but might be new to some. Would really be fun to take it out and spin a couple laps on that baby!!

Tom bought the Primm Collection, which included approximately 300 bikes. Tom has over 1,000 bikes. He sells a lot, but not as fast as he buys more. I made two trips this year and bought a lot of bikes. These two are my favorite:

Yep, this is it

Nice! Hannah"s 89 Unadilla GP bike! His last race? I think... I was there....RJ won it....Hannah could not buy a start! I remember Hannah was taking a last lap after the race as the Unadilla fans swarmed the track and RJ cut his podium interview short to join him riding around the track high fiving everyone....at the time I did not like RJ joining Hannah, but it was pretty cool ...RJ & Hannah had a connection with the fans that riders today can only dream of.....

Yeah, both of them were badass racers that said whatever they thought, and could back it up. Hannah was my hero

I will be at Mecum next week. I will update what happens with Ward's KX.

|

1/16/2019 8:36 AM

They’re actually not called ‘SR125’ etc. They’re officially KX125SR / KX250SR / KX500SR.

‘SR’ stands for ‘Special Racer’, rather cheesily.

I thought Ward's XRs were so cool. One of them followed me home.

The fools already spent all their money on 2 Harley dirt bikes and a pair of Z50’s. No money left for the good stuff.
