Jacks Hill Cafe Ton-Up Day top six bikes

MCN, 27 July 2012 13:48

Is this the ultimate Honda CBX1000?

MCN, 16 March 2012 13:31

A “breakthrough for the Japanese motorcycle industry” was one headline when Honda’s stunning six cylinder CBX was first announced in 1977 and the first photographs which appeared in MCN that year certainly left a lasting impression on one West Country teenager.

1975 Suzuki GT550 gets cafe racer treatment

MCN, 24 February 2012 17:04

This is the latest example of the increasing number of immaculate cafe racers coming out of America. Called the Honduki, it's an award winning build based on a 1975 Suzuki GT550 but, as you can see, it looks nothing like the pudgy streetbike Japan intended it to be.

Hand built 'retro' is 125 money

MCN, 19 August 2011 12:16

With continuing resurgence in interest in 70s and 80s superbikes, riders are once again buying bikes from their youth. But unless you're after a true 'classic' version - ie original and standard - there are two problems with that: first you'll quickly learn that their performance leaves a lot to be desired, particularly from a modern perspective.

Deus Yamaha SR custom dirt tracker

MCN, 15 July 2011 14:47

The Oddjob is Sydney based Deus' latest pared-down dirt track inspired take on the Yamaha SR500.
