Tansha June 2021


We have something of Suzuki theme going on this issue with Any Crabb's stunning artwork on the front cover.


Inside there's a T500 that's the subject of some virtual judging over in America, Part 2 of a TS185 restoration and a cracking review of Barry Sheene's race bikes thanks to our good friends Suzuki GB.


Elsewhere a Honda CD200 is reborn, we have a 60-something venturing out on the dirt for the first time, a track day experience and much more besides.


If you have an interest in older Japanese machinery then June's Tansha is a must-have.
