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.
Kawasaki's third evolution of the legend, the H2B, maintained all the charisma and thrills of the original but the package was tidied up nicely with tighter handling courtesy of a longer wheelbase and revised geometry.
The Z1 was the fastest motorcycle of its day and the Z1A was the second evolution. The only differences were the paintwork and minor technical modifications. Z1s' are the pinnacle of collectable Japanese motorcycles.
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.
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.
