A Pair of Classic “Dukes”

Leave well enough alone : true class is timeless.

While we love our custom builds, the team are just as happy to refurbish and fettle your classic bike.
Joy is having it look as glorious as the day it left the showroom, running as well or better than the maker intended.
These two fine specimens are a good example.

Classic Ducati Bevel : Engineering as Art

Classic Ducati Bevel : Engineering as Art

Over the years, Italian engineering has produced a bit of everything: great concepts that promised much but delivered little, spectacular successes, and stuff that just looks and sounds so good that your forgive its foibles.

I suspect the mighty bevel fits the latter category : fear not, eventually all is forgiven!
Love that sound….

Honda CB750

The Honda CB750 was gound breaking on first release, still a favourite with many.

The Honda CB750 was gound breaking on first release, still a favourite with many.

The CB750 was the first motorcycle to be called a “superbike.”

The first modern four-cylinder machine from a mainstream manufacturer, its electric starter, kill switch, dual mirrors, flashing turn signals, and easily maintained valves set it apart from the then competition.

Add new levels of overall smoothness and low vibration and you can see why it was a hit in the early ‘70’s and still has many fans. This bike, once part of the Mid Life private collection, has now moved on.

A fresh look at a timeless classic : 535cc Continental GT

A fresh look at a timeless classic : Continental GT

Built in a new factory with quality levels previously unknown, the new 535cc GT fits easily into both Classic and Retro.

Fuel injection, modern brakes and suspension don’t detract from the period feel and do wonders for rideability.

No necksnapper, but a lot of fun!
