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!)

RealClassic  |  April 2016  


The April issue of RealClassic is on sale now, and features roadtests, reviews and rebuilds of classic Italian motorcycles and great British bikes…


BSA B31
After his recent encounter with the glitz and glam of a genuine Gold Star, Ace Tester Miles accepts a challenge to try a more basic Beesa instead. It started out as a 350, then someone converted this single to 500cc B33 spec. How does it compare to its iconic clubmans counterpart?

DUCATI PANTAH
David Dickie hoped to pass his motorcycle collection on to his son, Stuart. Sadly, that won’t happen. Instead, Stuart’s dream machine represents an important connection between them

MATCHLESS 350 SINGLE
When Brit bikes were new bikes and not old bikes, many a dealer built their own special editions of standard models. Dave Blanchard encounters a really rare Plumstead plugger, created seven decades ago by Joe Francis. It’s a G3, well, mostly

MOTO GUZZI ELDORADO
A technical tale of electrickery. Nick Adams started out with a relatively simple task, fitting a set of spotlights to his Moto Guzzi V-twin. But one thing led to another and in no time at all he found himself re-wiring the entire electrical system…

NORTON UNIFIED TWIN
This was a model which never got beyond the prototype stage, but various major components are still kicking around. Which inspired Anthony Curzon to ask Richard Negus to reconstruct the engine a while back. Now he assembles the rest of the bike around it...

If you are using abbreviations, e.g., meetings, could you please state the full wording the first time it is mentioned in the article. For us overseas folk we have no idea sometimes, what the abbreviation means. I, for example, left the United Kingdom in 1956. Cheers George. Reviewed Tuesday, February 11, 2020
