Classic Motorcycle Mechanics  |  378 April 2019  


You’ll notice this month we have come out in all the colours of the rainbow. Why? Well, why not! Actually, it was January’s issue with the Urban Tiger FireBlade on the cover. It got me thinking about the best paint jobs for our modern classics, and then it occurred to me that some of the best have been those that have (literally) fallen off the racetrack.

I mean, who doesn’t like a good Yamaha ‘Speedblock’? Think Barry Sheene and Heron Suzuki. (Can someone smell Brut?) Then move forward in the ages and you’ve got the likes of the Skoal, Pepsi and Lucky Strike Suzukis, Marlboro Yamahas, Loctite Yams, Cadbury’s Boost-backed YZFs, Rothmans Hondas, Repsol Hondas, and let’s not forget that old stalwart the ‘Kawasaki green’.

Even if we head back to the 1970s with the Phil Read Replicas and the MHR900 Ducatis celebrating Mike Hailwood’s triumphant return to the Isle of Man, we’ve been spoilt! Think about car colour schemes… dull. Austin Allegro in chocolate brown with a vinyl roof, anyone?

So, you’ll see our two beer-bike test of the Honda CBR600F-Sport and the Suzuki GSX-R600 K3, along with a brief history of cool bike paint jobs, your own memories of owning said bikes, as well as some pretty funky retro reboots in our favourite ever colour schemes. We hope you enjoy!
