RealClassic revels in the nuts and bolts of running, riding and rebuilding real classic motorcycles. Expert and enthusiastic real-life riders from across the world share their passion for old bikes.

Here’s what’s coming up in the August issue:

Velocette Viper

When half a ton of Triumph triple feels like three times as much motorcycle as you actually need, it’s time to lose a cylinder. Or maybe two. Peter Hatfield tells a singular tale of the joy of one…

Triumph Tiger Cub

Triumph’s Cub may be small, but it still has the familiar Tiger bite. Frank Westworth enjoys life on a limit. Rowena Hoseason provides some actual facts.

BSA Spitfire

When David Buckley was young, BSA’s fire-breathing Spitfire was his dream machine. So in his retirement, he recreated the 650 sportster.

Suzuki T500J

Mark Whyman brought a 1970s 500 two-stroke back to life. How would it compare to his beefy British twin?

And there’s lots more, as well as the regulars, including: We’ve Got Mail!, Pub Talk, Ollie’s Oddjobs and Tales from the Shed.
