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 collection of the milestone bikes of the 1970's.
The Z1 was introduced in 1972 and the four cylinder double overhead cam engine was the most powerful production motorcycle engine made . It soon became widely referred to as 'The King' and it positively ruled the roads.
Honda created a landmark motorcycle and what is often considered the worlds first 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.
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.
