Hunt the Honda! • We all love a bit of history with our bikes, but wait until you hear about the history hunted out on Will Barber’s Honda CB1100RD!

What the manufacturers say

Removing ethanol from petrol

Personal Experience

Genius Genesis! • Unfairly overshadowed by the bad boys from the ‘Class of 85’, Steve Cooper finds lots to love in the five-valve per-pot Yamaha FZ750.

The owner’s view by Martin James

Multi-Coloured CHOP SHOP! • Ian and Tracey Saxcoburg may have stepped back from Café Racer Kits, but – as we sample John Nutting’s Triumph Roadster – we wanted to get the inside line on how the firm has grown and grown. We sent our own café racer king, Mike Cowton, to find out.

Wolf in sheep’s clothing… • John Nutting’s CRK 1200 Roadster project is complete, or as near as it ever will be. So what’s it like to ride? Nutters tries to be impartial as he mounts the beast…

YAMAHA MT-01 • Not some neutered design sketch, Yamaha’s MT-01 could have just wheelied off the drawing board…

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.

Running up that hill! • Award-winning motorcycle engineer!

Air-head! • Ralph Ferrand works with tools all day long – he sells them too at bikerstoolbox.co.uk so he knows what works.

SUBSCRIBE AND SAVE

Honda 250/350 K Series (1971-on) • Outclassed back in the day, the K3 and K4 twins seem to be back in vogue these days, according to Scoop!

TERRY BUTLER

What to buy and how much to pay

BACK ISSUES • Whether it's recent releases or vintage copies, step back in time and browse through the ages with the Classic Motorcycle Mechanics back issue collection.

NOS? No ta! • Our Pip does things right proper and he wanted to do right by this little Suzuki. But first, he went to a library…

Paint your wagon • He’s only cutting holes in things and playing with the ignition this time: does he know what he’s doing?

Well, what next?

Strong and...
