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 four-stroke GS750 was a substantial technical advance over the outgoing range of two-strokes that Suzuki were famed for. Despite being 'just' 750cc they were the fastest Japanese motorcycle available in 1976. The GSs' are a most usable classic.
Smooth, fast and civilised. The DOHC CB900F is a sophisticated package and pushes the perception of just how good and usable a 35 year old classic bike can be. It was not exported to the USA at this time and so remains comparatively rare.
Kawasaki's biggest two stroke began production in 1972 and accelerated faster than any other motorcycle available at the time. It rapidly earned an extraordinary reputation that has remained to this day. Now a most collectable Japanese bike.
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.
