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.
An exotic piece of motorcycle history most notable as the world's first six cylinder production motorcycle. With distinctive styling by Ghia, brakes by Brembo, suspension by Marzocchi and wheels by Borrani it couldn''t get more Italian.
The stylish and flamboyant Moto Guzzi Le Mans was charismatic and quirky as well as being one of the fastest motorcycles on the road. This first model has now become one of the most desirable and collectable classic bikes ever.
The six cylinder, 1047cc, 24 valve engine delivered 105 BHP and the bike itself handled the enormous power superbly with stable handling and fantastic brakes. It could reach 140mph which was sensational by standards of the day.
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.
