Suzuki

Suzuki's contribution to classic Japanese bike collection has been immense. Whether two stroke or four, there is a bike in there somewhere that is most memorable. Take this four cylinder, 2-stroke RG500 for example. At a time when the factory was at the height of its powers in GP racing, customers could buy a road bike that just oozed pedigree and class from that hot-bed of development.

Yamaha

Yamaha has made many bikes that fall into the modern classic category, but few have had such universal appeal and influence as the FS-1E. The archetypal headbanger's moped of the 70's started more biking careers than just about any other single bike. Photograph courtesy of Gibson Exhausts.

Honda

As the world's biggest manufacturer of vehicles, it is hard to know where to start with Honda's vast range. Looking for bikes that have had great influence, there are so many firsts in there, that you just can't pick one. One of our great favourites is the NC30 400cc V4. Built with such quality, these are little jewels of bikes and still ride as well as any modern middleweight.

Oldies but Goodies

More and more we are having people turn up at our workshop with modern classic Japanese bikes. It seems that to be cool these days you have to ride something that was made in the 1970s, 1980s or 1990s.

In fairness, all of these were good bikes in their day, but after a few years in the shed they may just need some tlc before venturing out onto the highway in earnest.

Luckily, we have all the information, tools and experience needed to make these bikes run as well as the makers intended. Pop along for a chat, or see our modern classics page for more information.

You'll find our attitude to getting your bike back out there refreshing. You won't just find concours restorations in our workshop. we also specialise in the type of practical and well engineerd refurbishment that gets your bike back under you where it belongs. We see changes and modifications that owners may have made over the years for what they are - part of the bike's history and character. Where apropriate, later upgraded parts parts or up to date materials can sometimes be used to good effect in maintaining the kind of period look your after whilst giving enhanced levels of performance, handling and reliability you'll apperciate.



The other good news about this more practical approach is that as well as saveing a great deal of money compared to a 100% original renovation, it wont leave you afraid to use the bike for fear of creating a blemish or getting caught out in a down poor.
