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.
The Z1 was the first of the legendary seventies 900 Kawasaki’s and is now the most coveted. Then and now they carry ultimate road presence and gain appreciation and respect from all quarters of the motorcycle world.
Honda created a landmark motorcycle and what is often considered the worlds first modern Superbike with the CB750. The beefy four cylinder SOHC machine was revealed in 1969 and included the first disc brake seen on a mainstream motorcycle.
A stylish all round motorcycle with the best handling of the era and ample power. The super smooth four cylinder twin cam engine has developed a reputation of being bomb proof. Without doubt the most usable seventies classic.
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.
