The May 2023 Edition of Classic Bike puts the spotlight on ‘Britain’s Favourite Classic’ – the 750cc Triumph Bonneville T140V. The iconic machine is celebrating its 50th birthday – and the magazine features a road test of a 1973 T140V built by a specialist who also gives buying tips for this affordable classic.

Hurtling forward through history, there’s a ride on a reader’s superbly restored Yamaha FJ1100 – now a 40-year-old bike itself. The incredible tale of the super-heavyweight Indian Four that won the USA’s toughest off-road race is also told, and ace ex-racer Roger Marshall regales us with stories from the crazy days of the ’70s.

All that and the CB boys’ own tales of running their classics, plus workshop projects and tips – now with an added Japanese and Italian flair.
