Tansha December 2018

December's Tansha magazine is once again packed full to bursting with a wide range of Japanese classics. There's a Honda CBX1000 restoration and Part One of a Kawasaki JT-1's a rather rare two stroke tiddler that never came to the UK. And following a similar theme Jeff Eeles tells how he inherited an MT-1 mini bike from Japan for free! Elsewhere we begin Roger Etcel's remarkable serialised autobiography. Even if the name isn't familiar you'll quite possibly have been influenced in some way by his decisions as a key player within Honda UK. Also in the December issue there's an in depth appraisal of Yamaha's seminal LC350, A Honda CX500 Turbo ridden by an 80 year old, the rebirth and updating of a Suzuki SB200 plus show and event reports plus a chance to win a £100 insurance voucher.  

If you're fully paid up VJMC member then the magazine will be with you well before Xmas. If you're not then why not join on line? Six 112 page magazines per year, track day access, discount insurance, DVLA approved dating for imported bikes, local sections, marque and model experts and whole lot more for just £30 a year...BARGAIN!
