Tansha April 2018

The April issue has a decidedly track based feel to it with two articles on Yamaha's early race bike, a tale about riding a Suzuki TS125 the Belgian GP and a substantial overview of Suzuki's phenomenally successful TR250. Away from the track we have the start of a Honda CX500 metamorphosis courtesy of a CRK kit, shed stalwart Woff shows us how to repair alloy and tiddler fan John Dalton takes drill and hacksaw to a Honda CB92 Benly. 


We start a new, occasional series, The Bike Trade, where those that have worked in the industry give us an insight into how bike shops used to function before H&S took over. Elsewhere and back on the race track there's a Yamaha RD250 rescued from a skip that still competes and wins, a report on the Bristol show and, of course, bikes and parts for sale plus members looking for that missing doofer or widget. To wrap up the April issue Dave Jupp is back with his ever popular Impressions series where, this time, he runs his eye over a Honda CB450 aka The Black Bomber. With all this and numerous listings of VJMC related events it's another packed issue  all about Japanese classics.Thanks,
