The June issue of Classic Bike features a Honda VF1000R on the front cover – epitomising the magazine’s philosophy that old bikes should be used as originally intended, this 1980s superbike was bought as a box of bits and rebuilt to be enjoyed to the full. Emphasising that idea, there are the tales of two British bikes – a road test of a 1973 Triumph Daytona 500cc, and the second part of Rupert Paul’s project 1971 BSA Thunderbolt rebuild.

A visit to the Cookstown 100 road races in Northern Ireland also sees a variety of classics being thrashed between the hedges, while an appraisal of Laverda’s 1990s parallel-twin machines reveals them as possible bargain buys for those looking to own and ride a classic with a difference.

There are also terrific tales from bike racing all-rounder Arthur Browning, who started off in motocross and ended up as the Milk Tray Man, making June’s Classic Bike a scrumptious selection box that’s hard to resist!
