Classic bike goes naked in the June issue – stripping a Bimota SB2 of its bodywork on the cover. It heralds a celebration of the Italian company’s 50 years of creating exotic (and sometimes wildly misguided) motorcycles. The ‘Master Frame Builders’ theme continues with features on the avant-garde aluminium-framed 1950s Earles BSA, a round-up of the UK craftsmen making special frames for classsics today, and a road test of a trio of Yamaha XT/TT500s fitted with trick aftermarket chassis. Fascinating previously-unseen photos from the collection of legendary Norton race boss Joe Craig are also revealed. With all that and the regular workshop tips, projects and market analysis, it’s an issue to savour at your leisure.
