VJMC Track Day and Show 19-20 July 2019

Tansha February 2019

February's Tansha, as usual, carries a broad-church approach with regards to its content. We have a life time Enfield fan who's discovered Japanese race replicas can be turned into decent café racers, a stunning show winning Yamaha XS-2 on the front cover along with a rather special Honda XL250 trials machine. Another member successfully rescues a now rare Suzuki GSX750, our Kawasaki JT-1 restoration story continues, Honda's Roger Etcell once again entertains with tales from behind the scenes and Ian Kerr reports of the Colombres Rally in Spain. Elsewhere Steve Hunt extolls the virtues of Yamaha's 600 Fazer as a winter hack and Graham Ellis-Jones rather bravely embarks upon the restoration of Honda CX500 Turbo. Lots to read, stunning machines to look at and, as always, useful hints and tips. If you're favourite machine isn't in there why not write in and tell the members all about it?
