Less than 30 left: Honda RVF750 RC45

MCN, 09 November 2012 16:33

With more examples currently on a SORN (25) than there are licensed for road use (12), the RVF750 – arguably the 1990s superbike – is apparently an endangered species. There’s no denying its V4 motor is the star of the show, a hand-crafted statement of excellence, but for the money (north of £18,000 in 1994), it’s fair to say that prospective ...

Jacks Hill Cafe Ton-Up Day top six bikes

MCN, 27 July 2012 13:48

Jacks Hill Cafe is an unremarkable-looking transport cafe on the outskirts of Towcester. But in the 1960s it was the meeting place for youngsters racing along the A5 on their hot-rodded British bikes.

Cagiva Elefant 900 - less than 30 left

MCN, 29 June 2012 17:30

With just nine Cagiva Elefant 900s left on the roads of the UK, plus a further eight tucked away in people’s garages on a SORN, you might reasonably expect the Cagiva Elefant, one of the original adventure bikes, to be better represented. On face value, for the early 1990s, marrying a Ducati V-twin with a monster trailie chassis seemed like ...

Goodwood celebrates two-strokes

Michael Neeves, 23 March 2012 15:58

This year’s Goodwood Festival Speed, held on 28 June - 1 July, will be alive to the sounds and smells of two-stroke and promises to be one of the highlights of the summer biking calendar. Grand Prix racing waved goodbye to the last two-stroke at the final 125cc GP in Valencia last November, so Goodwood are paying homage to the ...

Keeping Meriden twins alive

Andy Westlake, 17 February 2012 14:34

Triumph for most may today mean Hinckley 675s and Speed Triples, but the old Meriden twins still have a huge following – not least because of a British factory still making and supplying virtually every spare part imaginable. That firm is is LF Harris of Honiton in Devon, which for a number of years after the Meriden collapse, even produced ...

Dirt bikes from their '70s heyday

Andy Westlake, 12 December 2011 12:31

The 1970s are often thought of as the heyday of British trials when names like Mick Andrews and Martin Lampkin (Dougie’s dad) led the world aboard Ossas and Bultacos and regularly made the front page of MCN as a result. For the man in the street these twin shock, air-cooled machines were just as popular, with dealers showrooms packed with ...
