This little Honda really is something special. This machine is based primarily on a 1970 Honda SS125. As it transpires, the only true SS125 components that remain on this machine are the crankcases, but that makes it no less exceptional...

This lovely 673cc Honda Eurosport was entered by Robert Francis. The machine itself has an interesting past history; it had been abandoned in a spacious yard in South Wales, with nothing to indicate how it had gotten there or why. It was consequently rescued and restored.

This machine, entered by Andrew Gauntlett, is a later classic from Japan – a 250cc 1967 Honda C72. It had been stored in a shed for many years where it was beginning to rust and rot away in places. Thankfully it was rescued from its grim fate and restored...

From the mid 1950’s to the mid 1960’s, the mighty four-cylinder MV Agusta was one of the most competitive racing motorcycles around. It conquered race after race with its seemingly endless power, but its decade of domination was eventually quelled with the arrival of a more modern triple in 1966...

This beautifully restored 1961 Triumph Twenty-One (a bike that would later be rebranded as the ‘3TA’) is the property of entrant Luise Williams. Recognisable due to its enclosed rear wheel in what some refer to as the “bathtub” fairing, the Twenty-One was a very mild machine in comparison to other Triumph bikes...
