Is this motorcycle rare?

Recommended Posts

The guy who owns this said it was rare. I am speaking of the bike on the right side. I forgot what he said it was. How rare is it and what is it?? Actually, I would be interested in knowing what BOTH bikes are. Thanks. John

Both are collected, but either one is, especially, rare. Cushman and Matchless built thousands of them and quite a few have survived. The guy may think they are his "retirement" bikes, but he is mistaken

Yeah, the Cushman is either a Pacemaker or Highlander. They had a body around the engine and rear wheel. This condition not worth much. Maybe a $100 for parts. Cushman collecters want the motorcycle styled Eagle.

It looks to me to be a Cushman Trailster, an off-road model produced in the 60's.

I have no idea what model Matchless it is. The guy lives about 50 miles from here and I do not get up there much.

Comparing the performance of a Matchless to a Cushman isn't even apples and oranges:confused:
