FEEDBACK • Post to Mechanics, PO Box 99, Horncastle, Lincs LN9 6LZ or email your pictures to email@example.com
Show us yours • We want to see YOUR pride and joy in our pages, so you can share what you ride and what you restore/build with fellow readers. Email your hi-res shots to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail in some photos at the address at the front of the mag. Let us know what you’ve done, how you’ve done it and send before and after shots if you can. Do get in touch – because the best of the month gets a free T-shirt!
The way we were… • Send us your nostalgic snaps of you back in the day with your steed! Either send to me at bsimmonds@ mortons.co.uk or via our vibrant Facebook page. C’mon!

Kawasaki GPz1100 • Kawasaki’s claim to produce two-wheeled powerhouses started in the early 1970s and their GPz1100 carried this on into the 1980s. We really want a modern one!
Tool of the month • Ralph Ferrand works with tools all day long – he sells them, too, at bikerstoolbox.co.uk so he knows what works.
Q&A • Our very own wizened sages, Messrs Mark Haycock and Steve Cooper, are here to answer all of your woes, be they mechanical or spiritual. Every month we will be giving advice, as well as some general tips. Don’t forget to send in your own tips, too.
Tea or coffee? • What is he doing? The normally steady and sane Malc Shaw is going ‘rogue’ and considering making a café racer out of a perfectly good(ish) Suzuki triple…
Compromises! Compromises! • The restored and ‘customised’ Honda CG125 is at last back on the road, after John Nutting stumbles through the challenges of selecting and fitting an appropriate handlebar
