Show us yours

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, we’ll send you a T-shirt if you are our first pick!

Totally Delectable Ride! • What is it about Yamaha’s TDR250? A two-stroke legend, it inspires people to either make a faithful standard resto or something a little bit special. Dave Teal’s bike is a lovely mix of both…

Flicking the Vees! • V-Twins were a big thing in the 1990s, thanks to the dominance of Ducati’s 916, but not all sold as well as the Italian thoroughbred and that makes them great value now. We’ve chosen six of the best 90s Twins that you’ll be able to pick up for an absolute steal.

Super Stafford! • Post Covid, we’re back and better than ever at this year’s Stafford Show. We’ve got a stellar special guest, all the attractions of the shows of old and a new and more modern twist!

POWER to the PEOPLE • On the golden anniversary of the launch of Kawasaki’s 130mph four-cylinder Z1, we celebrate one of motorcycling’s greatest machines. John Nutting recounts how the bike was developed and his experiences of testing the early models.

Kawasaki Z1300 • It may be 50 years since the Z1, but bigger and better was soon to follow with the Z1000 and, later, the Z1300. Why not another six, Kawasaki?

Q & A

Brake pipe bending! • Ralph Ferrand works with tools all day long – he sells them too at bikerstoolbox.co.uk so he knows what works.

The pleasure and the pain! • Young Niall Brooking finally gets the motor for his TDR back from SPA Motorcycles and has a great few months on the bike... until disaster strikes!

Are you starting? • Ralph alternates between charging and starting as he sorts out the stock Z900’s electrical odds and sods.

Make do and… • Oooh, our Pip goes for a ride but the Stingray dies: what’s the to do? And can he fix it with minimal outlay?

SUZUKI TL • The bad-boy V-twin of the 1990s is still an exciting and exhilarating ride today – but what do you ne ed to look out for?

Well plucked! • Z-Power legend Dave Marsden continues his replica Goose bike from Mad Max and is paying some high prices!

Odds and sods #2! • The Devil is in the details as Mark heads towards finishing his Honda CB450.

SUBSCRIBE AND WIN

Busted up! • Just after last update, Jeff went and broke his wrists in a jump landing gone wrong. Luckily, he’s had some help from mates to keep Bruno company and coming along nicely!

A love letter to my CBR • He’s an artist (apparently) so let us allow Paul Berryman to gush forth words of love for his new acquisition!
