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.
Kawasakis' Z1 summed up the spirit of Seventies super biking. It burst on to the scene in 1972 dominating the decade with performance that put it streets ahead of the opposition. The Z1A is the second evolution.
The 400 topped Yamaha’s RD range and well and truly earned its legend of being a giant killer. They were fast, furious and it was no wonder they were the dominant tool for production racing.
The GT750 was Suzuki's flagship model and it was the last and greatest two-stroke motorcycle they created. Motorcycle journalists commonly described the GT750 as 'awesome'.
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.
