Tansha December 2016

December's Tansha has all you ever wanted to know about Japan's most successful classic parallel twin; the legendary Yamaha XS650. We have a period owner tail, a café racer build, the bikes history and input from a top man at Yamaha's European head quarters. Also inside there are two show reports, the lowdown on blast cleaning and an update on the fabulous David Silver Honda Collection. For those that like their history there's the tale of the Nursery Hotel on The Island and its place in Honda's early racing days. If you wanted the inside line into Bridgestone pistons Tansha has that's covered and elsewhere there's a cracking review of a rather rare Suzuki ASS 100G. Which all goes to show even if the riding season is over the VJMC's dedicated members are still on the ball and very active.
