The April 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 April issue includes:

The last hurrah

The oil-in-frame BSA A65L Lightning was the final evolution of the famous old firm’s last parallel twin – and it is arguably the best of the genre they ever made.

Out of time

By the 1950s, Norton’s Model 18, with its rigid frame and clear 1930s lineage, was an anachronism – though that doesn’t mean it’s any worse for it.  

Maserati Rospo

In Italian, Rospo means ‘toad’ – and that was the nickname bestowed upon the jewel-like 1950s 50cc sportster made by the Italian supercar manufacturer. 

Cotton Blackburne 

This rakish sporting single, from the 1920s TT- winning firm, belies the argument that vintage motorcycles are sedate and pedestrian, it being anything but.

subscription to The Classic MotorCycle magazine means you can enjoy all of this, plus plenty of other benefits such as making a major saving on the cover price and FREE postage.
