FEEDBACK • Moving on to the end of February, why not head to The Bristol Classic MotorCycle Show over the weekend of February 26-27? CMM’s very own Allen Millyard will be there with some of his amazing machines. Held at The Royal Bath and West Showground, hundreds of classic machines will be on display, as well as the indoor/outdoor trade and auto-jumble and some top club displays. As per usual, for ticket info and to keep up with what’s happening (just in case, you know what Covid-19 is like) go to: www.classicbikeshows.com

The way we were… • Send us your nostalgic snaps of you back in the day with your steed! Either send to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or via our vibrant Facebook page. C’mon!
Snowballing six! • CMM reader Andrew Ellis had kept his Honda CBX1000Z for around 40 years, but then decided to get it back on the road. Things snowballed from there!
Going green! • The latest in a line of modern-dressed-as-classic is the Kawasaki Z650RS – but can it hold a candle to the original?
Delicious delinquent! • Hurrah for the hooligan class! Back in the 1980s and 1990s there was only one place to go for the ultimate in sports middleweight fixes – especially if you wanted a two-stroke four-stroke!
saucy scrambler! • Part tiddler, part street scrambler, but wholly cute: we sample a rare Suzuki – the ACC100.
APRILIA TUONO R • Okay, so this is more of a retro repaint than a retro reboot or even a retro-spective, but our Bert needs the help of an expert to choose a scheme for his naked V-twin…
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.
Pan problems and a new four! • Award-winning motorcycle engineer!
Marking time! • Ralph Ferrand works with tools all day long – he sells them too at bikerstoolbox.co.uk so he knows what works.
Honda Hornet 600 • Hailed as one of the best of the early naked middleweights, Honda sold a LOT of the first-generation CB600F Hornets – so many have been broken, right Scottie?
Buttoning up the box! • Ralph’s moving on at pace with his stock restoration of Kawasaki’s Z900: what’s happening this month, Ralph?
Any port in a storm! • And breathe out – in part two of our two-stroke know-how, we look at how strokers get rid of exhaust gases by looking at exhaust ports!
