Tansha December 2017

December's issue starts off with a cracking article by Tony Topping who's reliving his youth via a Yamaha YDS7. The story is great but then there are the stunning shots taken by his son, a professional photographer. As front covers go I reckon this has to be one of our best in ages. Kawasakis feature large with  Will Barber finishing his  ZXR-750 refurbishment and our very own Woff looks at the self destructing gearbox bearings in his 500 H1 triple. Rounding off the special K trilogy is a reminiscence by Graham Brown lamenting his 'White Swan' S1. If racing's your thing then you'll love our 'From the Archive' feature which looks at the history of the Honda CR750 and features innumerable modern replicas. If the VJMC is unfairly seen as restorers-only club  then Eddie Wallbank  debunks that particular myth rather well with his Honda CB350/4. It's one man's take on a café racer melding old and new into a unique bike. And for added spice he takes it for its first MOT on a trailer towed  by a Vincent sidecar outfit! All this plus Section reports, shows and events plus bikes and parts for sale. Classic Japanese really doesn't come much more varied than this!
