It’s fair to say that Steve Cooper’s Suzuki T125 Stinger restora­tion has been tough on the old boy… In CMM’S pages we’ve traced the highs and lows of the pur­chase, strip-down, restora­tion and re­build of this pop­u­lar Suzuki twin, but only now can we ap­pre­ci­ate the ef­fort that Steve and his select band of helpers and prod­uct/ser­vice providers have put in. For proof of the pud­ding, go to page 50 and en­joy! It’s won­der­ful to see projects come to fruition… such as Allen Mill­yard’s RC374. We all know that this has been long-since fin­ished, but the full story has only been seen in CMM month-on-month. Next month is his fi­nal in­stal­ment be­fore a big re­cap and photo-shoot in which you will see the bike in all its glory. We hope you’ll en­joy that, be­fore he em­barks on his next big project in the pages of CMM! Our down un­der dude Jeff Ware has dug up some gems this month… for the off-road fans he’s come up with a tale of the restora­tion of a Mick An­drews’ Ossa and he’s re­count­ing the tale of when he rode the beau­ti­ful Cagiva V593 GP 500… He’s a lucky so-and-so that one… As I’m tap­ping this on Jan 4, may I take the op­por­tu­nity to say ‘happy New Year’ and ‘thank you’ for tak­ing CMM to a record sub­scrip­tion high! Stay with us for 2019!
