RealClassic Magazine

12 issues per year 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!)

Great perspective on old bikes

Always a good variety of bikes covered. Like the real rider/restorer experiences.

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.
