Ok so my  2003 KTM 950 Adventure S , yes the tall one, must qualify for legends tax :imaposer:
Bikes : 2003 KTM 950 adventure S, 2018 KTM 690 Enduro R , BigBoy Revival 150 for the dorp.

Sun, Wind and Sail and for those colder days, My Bike.
Live for today, because yesterday has gone and tomorrow may never come.

XR650R one bike I have never owned but have to admit not man enough to start that beast on a lever only. I have seen them on cold misty mornings refusing to wake up  :snorting:
That was my 990  :imaposer:

I have a Honda Z50, a lot of legend tax on that bike, now if I could only have a Suzuki RGV 250 in my garage I would feel complete  ;D

Legend tax is exactly what it says, what has the bike done/achieved to be a legend or seen as legend?

Take a Yamaha XT500 as example, winning the first ever two Dakar races guaranteed it legend status, but........lots of them sold so the rarity is not there.

And THAT is the LEGEND.  Now 99% of them are worn out and thrashed.  The 1% was collected by collectors long ago.

1. Legend Tax refer to certain bikes, and they are few and far in between  ....
2. As opposed to Legendary Taxing, where an owner thinks everybody wants his boney, at a ridiculous price.

Agree 100% - On 2 above, a 916 SPS Duc popped up yesterday at the bargain price of 300k  ::)

BMW R1150GSA/GS also legend tax.

And we bought a XT600 Tenere yesterday as well for R25000

As previously mentioned in this thread, some people advertise a bike with apparent "legend status" or a bike with high "nostalgia value" for astronomical prices. Sometimes you just have to shake your head and smile.

case in point:   https://www.olx.co.za/item/honda-mini-trail-iid-1059899814

This Honda Z50 Mini Trial is not even original, with a Chinese 110cc engine, and a dubious make-over, and the guy is asking R30 000. Now that will never happen.

Sorry if this bike belongs to a fellow dog, but jeez what are you smoking......

Yeah I see a few of those knock offs as well and really hope people don't fall for them. I think 30k is realistic for a real Z50. Even saw one advertised on facebook last week for 60k which is a bit much.
