There is something about the superbikes from the 1970's. Whether you were lucky enough to own one, you were a schoolboy who had the poster on your bedroom wall, or you just have a taste for the classics - here's Proper Bikes, a living collection of the milestone bikes of the 1970's.
Released in 1978 the GS1000 was a further development of the GS750 released the previous year. It remained almost the same size and was virtually the same weight but with the extra power it became an even more exciting machine.
A compact superbike with the perfect balance of light weight and agility in conjunction with ample smooth power. An attractive and sophisticated machine that is a joy to ride.
A technically advanced machine with ultra modern Euro-styling for the start of the new decade. Spec' includes double overhead camshaft, 16 valves, triple disc brakes, tubeless tyres and electronic ignition.
If you are searching for something special that makes for a wise investment, is a lot of fun, really usable, reliable enough, safe enough & faster than fast enough – you naturally find the 1970's.
Easy to start, easy to maintain, satisfying to ride sedately - and electrifying to ride hard.
Each and every Proper Bike has an individual character and provides a refreshingly different kind of enjoyment than more contemporary bikes.
Each of these machines are milestone models and special.
The Proper Bikes Collection consists of the very best - whether 'timewarp' originals or compromise-free restorations.
