Old rivalries revived in the latest issue of Classic Bike Guide, as Nigel Clark compares three different approaches to performance biking in 1969. This was a year when it was all happening, optimism was in the air, the free for all, swingin' Sixties were about to metamorphose into the tasteless Seventies with an attitude of sheer excess. See the three-bike video.
Also in this issue, 50 years of Special K, where Roland Brown concludes his look at Kawasaki’s 50th anniversary with a brief overview of the company’s racing success, BSA’s ‘Jack of all trades, master of most’ B40 and a ‘new’ factory-build MV Agusta 500cc triple, built to the 1973 specification – so it’s not a replica, but an original built later – and overseen by Ago himself. Alan Cathcart tells the story of one of the batch of six the factory produced in 2010.
