RealClassic Magazine

12 issues per year View Reviews   |   Write Review From £1.08 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!)

RealClassic  |  March 2014  


Buy RC119, March 2014

This month in RealClassic magazine: a scintillating selection of British and Continental classic bikes being ridden, rebuilt and reviewed by the people who own them. Oh, and a T500, too…

BMW OILHEAD BOXER
We hesitate to claim that the R1150R is an emerging classic of anything of that kind. But Frank Westworth has been seduced by the dark side of a civilised Germanic streetfighter

MOTO GUZZI ELDORADO
Owner Nick Adams strikes gold with his choice of mile-munching Guzzi V-twin; a 1972 V-twin roadster which proves to be more than capable of crisscrossing Canada

MOTO GUZZI LODOLA
Stu Thomson continues his rebuild of a 1960s Moto Guzzi single. This month he tries his hand at wheel building and starts to investigate the engine…

BULLETS IN INDIA
The original Royal Enfield Bullet was the perfect bike for post-war Britain. How does it fare in 21st century India? Reuben Fowles found out on a trip to the high Himalaya

MATCHLESS G80CS
Take a competitive Matchless scrambles machine, aka The Westerner, and put it on the road. Does it make a decent touring and pottering tool? Martin Peacock found out the hard way

SCOTT SELECTION
Last month’s road test of a Scott Flying Squirrel created a cascade of entertaining correspondence on the subject. Here are just some of the reminiscences, observations and suggestions which RC readers have to offer on the subject…

SUZUKI T500
Tim Ellis ended up with a Suzuki two-stroke entirely by happenstance. Now he’s celebrating over 25 years with the same motorcycle, and shares his experiences with T and GT 500s

TRIUMPH BONNEVILLE T120
Born on the salt flats at Bonneville, the first T120 of 1959 is legendary. But can the Tangerine Dream ever live up to its reputation? Rowena Hoseason examines an icon

TRIALS CUB SPECIAL
The plan was for Odgie to ride this tricky trials special which matches a Cub engine to an unusual frame and tell you all about it. Next thing you know, we’re talking Mick Grant, sand-racing, and rumours
