Issue 49 Winter 2018
Magazine

Classic Dirt Bike magazine: is about the bikes and personalities of the sport, covering pre-65 machines, classic and twin shocks, trials as well as scrambling/motocross and enduros. There are reader rebuilds from the UK/Europe and North America, event coverage, personality interviews/profiles, letters, products and so much more.

Hiding in plain sight • Sometimes the obvious is clear to all around – except for the one who needs to know...

DIRT NEWS

An expert’s Cota • Casting an eye over Clive Smith’s Montesa at Alvie, we thought ‘This is a bit trick.’ So, we asked Clive to tell us about it...

CLIVE SMITH

YOU NEED… A 1977 WORKS HONDA IN YOUR SHED • It’s time for a shed upgrade as we’re telling you to get a works Honda in there and these are seriously rare – as well as ultra-desirable – so you will need to invest in a better lock or a bigger guard dog or both…

YOU ALSO NEED… A WORKS APRILIA IN YOUR SHED • Continuing our quest to tell you what you need in your shed, if you’ve got a works Honda RC500 MXer squeezed in the secure part, then alongside it we suggest you have a genuine works Aprilia trials bike.

Building on success • Montesa’s Cappra VR caught the public eye in 1973, Richard Allen’s caught our eye in 2018.

KALEVI VEHKONEN

WHAT’S AN SAE?

WHAT’S IN A NAME?

50 years of Montesa in the UK • An arbitrary figure to say the least, but really for Montesa 1968 was the start of the big time in the UK.

GORDON FARLEY BRITISH CHAMPION

PETER MATHIA

PERE PI – DEVELOPMENT CHIEF

BOB WRIGHT

Mix and match • Catalogue correct doesn’t often cut it on the track, where performance is all.

DAVE GODLEY

Welding • There are many reasons to contact a welder…

The rebuild progresses • Things have moved on a little and there’s news of the next project too.

IT’S NOT JUST ME… MEET JERRY’S JUMBO
