Classic Motorcycle Mechanics - - NEWS -

More than 100,000 mad keen bik­ers came through the doors at Brum' s NEC to wit­ness the an­nual spec­ta­cle that is Mo­tor­cy­cle Live! Of course it' s all about brand-new metal at this mo­tor­cy­cle show, but once more the clas­sic and retro/ clas­sic el­e­ment was strong and there for all to see. One of the high­lights was a replica Spi­tae re on the CCM stand to push the (not so pretty) two-wheeler of the same name. A num­ber of Euro­pean man­u­fac­tur­ers such as Tri­umph, BMW and Moto Guzzi showed their cur­rent ret­ros range, but for us we felt that Kawasaki and Suzuki nailed it once more. Not only did Kawasaki have a num­ber of ver­sions of the oh-so-sexy Z900RS on dis­play, but also an ex­am­ple of the range of colours it could come in. They had the new W800 on dis­play too. Suzuki had the new Katana (many said it looks bet­ter in the esh) as well as ex­am­ples of their clas­sic ma­chines on dis­play with the Vin­tage Parts Pro­gramme boys as well as a full show strip/re­build of a Barry Sheene race bike. Keep next year’s date in your di­ary: Mo­tor­cy­cle Live 2019, the NEC, Birm­ing­ham, Novem­ber 16-24.

Cool Kwak, su­per BM and Ron in a Spit­fire. Su­perb!
