MOTORBIKES OF THE 80S – NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE
The motorbike experienced something of a revival in the 80s. At the latest when Tom Cruise rode off into the sunset on a Kawasaki (and without a helmet) in Top Gun, everyone wanted a motorbike. A longing that inspired many other classics and makes motorbikes of the 80s particularly desirable.
The 80s were colourful, wild and diverse. This also applies to the world of two-wheelers. For never before has the range of motorbikes on the world market been so varied. Tom Cruise’s romantically coloured ride into the sunset, filmed in 1985, may not have been the trigger for this boom. But it was certainly a key moment in the lives of many people who had lost sight of the motorbike as a means of rebellion. Suddenly it was there again, the slightly kitschy longing for freedom and moderate non-conformity.
