The latest proper bikes

  • BMW R100RS for sale, low mileage, un-restored in exceptional original condition

    BMW R100RS 1978

    BMW's flagship machine and the pinnacle of 1970's sports touring motorcycles. Supremely capable, beautifully engineered and very stylish. This motorcycle made cruising at 100mph for exceptionally long periods of time effortless.

  • One owner, low mileage, un-restored Yamaha RD350LC for sale

    Yamaha RD350LC 1982

    Maybe not superbikes in terms of mass but certainly superbikes in terms of capability. The LC Yamahas are milestone machines that took us out of the seventies and storming into a new era. They became known as giant killers for good reason.

  • 1971 Honda CB750 K1 for sale in fully restored condition from Proper Bikes UK

    Honda CB750 K1 1970

    The Dream CB750 Four was truly a monumental landmark in the history of motorcycles and its launch in 1969 caused Kawasaki to delay the launch of their own Superbike and return to the drawing board to think again.
