Classic Motorcycle Mechanics  |  380 June 2019  


I guess we all get to an age where we almost look to our futures in some way or another. Be it saving for a rainy day, buying a house together with a partner, or taking out an insurance policy. Whatever… we need to look ahead; we’re told we have to look ahead. Strange thing to say, in a classic oriented motorcycle magazine, but it’s this sort of thing that’s been on my
mind recently.

Now, as well as the amazing ‘back catalogue’ of bikes from the decades, I do enjoy modern two-wheelers, but – by ‘eck – often they can be either very fast, quite tall, hard to manage easily, or a mixture of all these things. Bikes like the Moto Guzzi V7 IIIs tested this month are a view to an
alternate future of the bikes people like us may want to ride.

Most manufacturers now offer ‘retro’ bikes which hark back to better times, but give us the latest in techno-gubbins, without the outright power, speed and plain daftness of a racereplica or even a too-tall adventure bike.

Over the last few years I’ve loved tootling along on something stylishly old-fashioned but thoroughly modern, be it a ‘new’ Triumph Bonnie, a Guzzi V-twin, a Kawasaki Z900RS or – next month – Suzuki’s new Katana. The future is as bright as our past, so let’s embrace it.
Dedicated to the later classics and Japanese machines, Classic Motorcycle Mechanics has it all. Every issue is packed with pages of road tests, rebuild guides, 'Street Specials' reviews, news and events.

With more and more enthusiasts wanting to rebuild and maintain their own prized machines, Classic Motorcycle Mechanics is the only magazine that "Buys its own bikes, rebuilds 'em and rides 'em." - giving you a first-hand guide into the world of classics from a technical point of view - as well as the riders!
