We all do it – or at least we do when we get to a ‘certain age’: scour the bikes for sale ads and get all dewy-eyed about ‘modern classics’ from our youth.

The dream is one thing, a fun pastime, a fantasy- but what’s it actually like if you bite the bullet and buy one of these bikes? To find out we set ourselves a challenge. To buy three ‘modern classics’ for no more than £1500 each.
