Classic Bike Magazine

The August issue of Classic Bike magazine is out now!

This month we meet Dick Shepherd, a one-man Triumph museum, with what is surely the world's largesy private collection of its kind, with over 300 motorcycles and still going strong.

 

We compare the new Royal Enfield Continental GT with its 1960's namesake and ask whether at a touch over £5k if it lives up to the original and we find out how Paul Wingert restored his Kawasaki H2 for £6,00.

 

Next year, it will be 60 years since the great John Surtees contested over 90 races in one season, winning 68 of them and leaving no one in any doubt that Grand Prix racing had a new star. We take a look back at the season that would set him on the path to winning seven world championships and the bikes that made it happen.
