RealClassic Magazine

12 issues per year View Reviews   |   Write Review From £1.58 per issue RealClassic magazine features the very best British motorcycles from all eras, plus charismatic Continental machines (and the odd Japanese classics crops up occasionally, too).

Long term classic riders will recognise many of the members of the RC team, which includes authors, historians and journalists like Steve Wilson, Dave Minton, Matt Vale, Odgie, Jacqueline 'PUB' Bickerstaff, Rowena Hoseason and editor Frank Westworth -- but the magazine's key feature is that it is firmly grounded in the real world. Our articles are written by real life riders and reflect far more than a simple road test ever can. We're never scared of getting grubby in The Shed (and we even admit it when things go horribly wrong!)

Issue Cover

RealClassic  |  209 - September 2021  


The only magazine that tells it like it is when it comes to the best of British motorcycles and international classics from all eras.

In this issue:

ROCKET SELF-STARTER
Androids may dream of electric sheep, but owners of BSA-Triumph triples dream of electric starting. Alan Thirsk attempts to turn those dreams into push-button perfection.

AJS ENGINE OVERHAUL
Half the fun of old bikes, says Neil Cairns, is keeping them running well - as he takes apart the engine of an AMC 500 single for routine maintenance.

BSA STARFIRE PROJECT
Odgie's build is starting to look like a motorcycle: it's up on its wheels, engine in, brakes connected. At this stage it's easy to think it's almost done, but don't kid yourself.

And much more!
