Tansha October 2016

The October Tansha is an almost perfect mirror for what the club and its members do best; ride bikes and have fun. If you needed inspiration for 2017 it's going to be here in this issue. Track days, full on shows, tours, ride outs, sprint/drag racing and a whole lot more is on display for all to enjoy. Elsewhere as the riding season ends and the shed/restoration season begins we have three Tansha featured bikes all neatly sorted. Paul MacDonalds exquisite Honda C72 is finally up, running and graces our front cover. Ray Gale puts the finishing touches to his RDR3 and Ian Mason finally wrestles his Honda GL1000 engine back into a replacement frame. An article on clock repairs and our popular "From the Archive" feature looking at S series Kawasaki triples fills in some of the gaps with a review of Honda's CB160 to round everything off. In Conclusion completes the magazine with a tale about Lucky Larry...all stuff you simply don't get in mainstream magazines; ENJOY!
