See Them All

  • 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.

  • Suzuki GS750 1978

    The GS750 is a brilliant stylish all round machine and it introduced superb handling to the already powerful Japanese superbike offerings of the day. The four cylinder twin cam engine turned out to be unburstable, smooth and powerful.

  • Yamaha XS1100 1978

    A beast of a motorcycle and with the largest capacity and power output of any production bike manufactured at the time meant that nobody could then deny that Yamaha offered a true superbike in their line-up.

  • THE 1970'S

    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. 

  • THE BIKES

    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.

  • THE CRITERIA

    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.
