Here's just a few of the fantastic modern classic machines available this week:  

Honda CBX750

’79 Bultaco Frontera 360, £1999
Raspy Spanish two-stroke was a potent ‘70s enduro choice.
We say: Feared and revered, but a relatively simple, sweet and cheap classic.



Suzuki TS125

’77 Moto Morini 350 Sport, £2695
Iconic Italian middleweight V remain good-looking, affordable and fun.
We say: Sport is most prized version. This one’s sweet and reasonable.


Yamaha Fazer FZX700

’82 Suzuki GSX1000 Katana, £4650
Wacky-styled ‘80s superbike is now appreciating classic
We say: 1000 is most revered version. This one’s decent and reasonable


Triumph TR6 Tiger

’81 Suzuki TS185ER, £1499
Definitive early ‘80s stroker trailie is now tempting starter classic.
We say: Middleman of ‘80s 100/125/185/250 TS family. Sweet, simple and affordable.

Triumph TR6 Tiger

’80 Yamaha XS400, £995
Four-stroke twin is workmanlike but lacks sparkle.
We say: But usable, affordable and increasingly rare in this original nick.
