The LatesT

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 RD400E 1978

    Light, torquey, precise and fun. With its brilliant attributes and image the RD400 soon attracted a loyal band of fans and most of them remain ardent followers today. 

  • 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. 


    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.
