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.
Proper Bikes use special fuel in the tanks of every machine through the winter and when not in regular use.
This news feature explains what we use and why use it.
Released in 1978, the CBX had a huge impact. Magazine testers referred to it as "a revelation" and one stated that "history will rank it with those rare and precious motorcycles which will never, ever be forgotten".
A groundbreaking superbike with a widely acknowledged reputation as the ultimate long distance tourer of the era - but with a less known claim to being the second fastest accelerating production bike in the world.
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.
