PREVIEW: June issue of The Classic MotorCycle magazine

import-from-BTP-150x150.jpg

import-from-BTP.jpg


The June edition of The Classic MotorCycle magazine offers a lavishly illustrated celebration of legendary machines, riders and races, and news, reviews and rare period images from the golden age of motorcycling.

Drawing on an archive stretching back to 1903, The Classic MotorCycle magazine provides an unparalleled insight into more than a century of motorcycle design, development, riding, racing and much more. This month’s issue includes:

Matchless G12 CSR


The 650cc CSR models from Matchless and AJS could’ve been the firm’s finest hour, though after a promising start, they simply added to the beleaguered business’s woes.

Spring into action


Lockdown had ended, the sun was shining, and we’d moved onto British summer time… It was the ideal moment to fuel up two favourite old motorcycles and head for the coast.

Rochdale’s racer


TT racer, motorcycle dealer, Home Guard sergeant and man of mystery – the life of Ben Drinkwater is as varied as it is mysterious.

A subscription means you can enjoy all of this, plus plenty of other benefits such as making a major saving on the cover price and FREE postage.

It’s quick and easy to sign up and, whether you do it online or over the phone, our team is ready and waiting to get your new deal under way or extend your current package.

Norton Dominator De Luxe

For a brief few years, being covered up was all the fashion, as exampled by this superb Norton Dominator De Luxe. Tony Smith brings you this superb feature.

Royal Enfield Model G 350

Modest, unfussy and dependable, Royal Enfield’s Model G 350 was the perfect partner for postwar British workers. The properties that won the pre-unit single favour then, make it an ideal classic today.

40 years of The Classic MotorCycle

It was 40 years ago when the first issue of The Classic MotorCycle appeared; we celebrate that period with an exclusive feature.
