October Old Bike Mart out now!

September 29, 2022

Welcome to Old Bike Mart, the subscription-only newspaper with the UK’s largest selection of classic motorcycle classified ads.

This month’s OBM, as always is the case, features the latest news, reports from the racetrack, part and tool reviews and ‘how to’ guides. Ensure you get your copy by subscribing to OBM here.

We call OBM the autojumble in your armchair, which it is… but there’s so much more to this publication. It’s like meeting an old friend for a walk down memory lane, with plenty of laughs thrown in and some evocative pictures to mull over.

Here’s a look inside the pages of the new October issue…

The Heritage Sprint

Although the calendar is full of events of all natures, there’s always room to welcome a new one… and that’s how Kev Riley found himself at Betteshanger Park in Kent one hot August weekend.

Car-powered sidecars

This month Mick Payne takes a brief look at why car engines have not been more widely used to haul sidecar combinations and why there has been little crossover between the three- and four-wheeled worlds.

The further adventures of Mickey Sparra!

Last month we brought you Mike Woodley’s wonderful memoir of how he started out on motorcycles. So what happened next? Let Mike tell you…

Ron Langston’s Ariel Meet

Many competition riders specialize in one particular area of two-wheeled sport, but then there are the rare individuals who can excel on whatever machine they throw their leg over. Ron Langston is one of those all-rounders. And once a year he proves that he can throw a fine party, too…

Plus much more, including:

The newest Gold Star at the NMM

North Lincs VOC Wolds Run

Salisbury Motorcycle Club’s Centenary Show

Kawasaki disc valve singles
