This is The Green Issue, but not some kind of environmentally-motivated political message those three words now suggest. Far from it. It’s a celebration of a time when green was mean, a time of Kawasaki’s outrageous two-strokes triples and ground-breaking four-strokes. A time when big horsepower was everything and chassis technology was struggling to catch up.
In the early 1970s riders were going Kawasaki crazy on the road with the wild 500cc and 750cc two-strokes. On track it was fast and furious too, with people like Mick Grant at the TT and short circuit heroes like Yvon DuHamel and Art Baumann struggling to tame the ‘green meanies’.
Then came the four-strokes. Godier Genoud won endurance races with the Z1/Z1000 power units and Eddie Lawson earned legendary status racing a Z1000 in American superbike that saw Kawasaki develop a road bike as a tribute to him.
It was an incredible period of gas-guzzling, tyre-smoking madness – a green era to unsettle all of today’s green campaigners.
Classic Bike – July 2017 Issue£4.20
Classic bikes need a fettle every now and again, so we felt it was time to give the mag one, too. We’ve tweaked the front end to cover a wider range of bikes, people and events. We’ve also given more prominence to Rick’s much-loved workshop section – and kept the engine strip and specialist favourites.
Features-wise, we wanted to keep the same wide variety, so we’ve got three-bike Suzuki triple comparison plus a wild girder-forked Gold Star. The classic world is full of characters, and Glen English stands out not just as one of the top classic racers in the world but also one of the most talented model makers in the sculptors of two-wheeled machines.
British bike shops with real history are relatively plentiful in the UK…but in Greece? We found a BSA dealership in Athens that is celebrating its 100th anniversary. and we’ve got events, with comprehensive coverage of the Donington Endurance and the Quail Gathering, which highlight the diversity of the classic world we love so much.
Enjoy the read.
