  • Mint restored Kawasaki H2C 750 triple for sale from Paul Brace Proper Bikes in the UK

    Kawasaki H2C 750 1975

    The H2C is the ultimate development  of what is quite probably the most outrageous production motorcycle ever made. Fast, loud and thirsty in its day - and time has changed none of those qualities.

  • 1978 Yamaha XS750 for sale in superb un-restored original condition from Proper Bikes UK

    Yamaha XS750 1978

    A very usable triple cylinder sports bike. Introduced in 1976 it improved each year until 1981 when it finished its production run as an 850. Standard specification included triple disc brakes, cast wheels and, by 1978, electronic ignition.

  • Modified 1983 Kawasaki Z1000 R2  in superb condition for sale from Proper Bikes UK

    Kawasaki Z1000 R2 1983

    Kawasakis Eddie Lawson Replica is one of the most evocative bikes of the time. They looked substantial, handled well and were properly fast. Built in relatively tiny numbers the genuine R's models are rare and collectable.
