STAR LETTER

Anything to say?

Advance and retard • Each month for two pages, we aim to bring you the views and opinions of the old bike scene from all corners of this merry, if cobweb-infested world we call motorbicycling. You may not agree; so don’t spit your cereal everywhere and keep your pantaloons on – it’s just opinion. This month, as it’s the first one, it’s Oli’s and Matt’s turn.

Who do they think they are?

The Rules of classic motorcycling • Oli looks at the certain rules that apply to the purchase, maintenance, restoration, and even occasionally riding of a classic motorcycle. These include:

Who do they think they are?

BSA Super Rocket

BSA SUPER ROCKET

40 year SAAB atical One that got away • A rain-lashed holiday is enough to drive any young man into a flight of fantasy, but this particular flight took off. Almost a half century later it landed as something totally unique. Phil Chester takes a look at a really special special!

Triumph took their new Trident on tour! We had a go... what did we think? • Triumph have been the first manufacturer out of the blocks come the country’s relaxation of restrictions, with a tour of their dealers to show off the new Trident 660. Maria, her dad and Oli went to have a go to see what they thought.

And what did Oli think?

Matt’s view We’re all different…

Hesketh Motorcycles • The story of Hesketh Motorcycles is a twisting, turning example of how the British motorcycle trade could provide excellence in engineering and product. Yet, at the same time, also of how it really couldn’t…

Hesketh Owners Club

Small Capacity Marushos • Our very own Mr Steve Cooper gives a marque review of this little-known Japanese motorcycle company and some of their smaller models.

YAMAHA RD250

1973 RD250

PARTS PRICES

HOW MUCH?

ALSO CONSIDER

Doing the shimmy again • This month, Hutch reminds himself why he likes working on properly old bikes after rediscovering the delights of valve clearances with shims

Morini Project • A misty-eyed Oli decides to resurrect his young love from whence it has been resting. Will it be another

In the workshop with Cooper-san and his Yamaha AS1 • Many aspire to owning Yamaha’s seminal 125 sports twin, but few start from here!

THE FAMILY TREE

Famous Last Words • We’ve never had it so good. Official…

Who do they think they are?
