The September edition of The Classic MotorCycle magazine offers a lavishly illustrated celebration of legendary machines, riders and races, and news, reviews and rare period images from the golden age of motorcycling.

Drawing on an archive stretching back to 1903, The Classic MotorCycle magazine provides an unparalleled insight into more than a century of motorcycle design, development, riding, racing and much more.
The September issue includes:

Lusty lookalike

Superbly crafted Velocette special, with the performance it delivers as good as the Venom Thruxton model it apes, though the electric-start replica benefits from better manners.

Mystery machine

With its engine made in 1904, how come this Fafnir (if that’s even what it really is…) appears on the Pioneer Register as 1911? ‘Period updates’ is the short answer.


The last hurrah

Final incarnation of the BSA Bantam was the best, while this B175 is still made to work for its living, being used as its maker intended, over half a century on from when made.

Spanish trendsetter

The dinky Montesa 125 Sprint was quite some goer, being the first two-stroke to secure a place on a GP podium, with second and third (plus fourth) in the 1956 125cc TT.
