Classic Bike Guide - Bigger, Broader, Better!
By: Web Editor
When Classic Bike Guide first hit the shelves back in 1990 it was a breath of fresh air. A classic bike magazine written by ordinary classic bike fans, for ordinary classic bike fans who might not know the difference between a Brough Superior and a Brough Mediocre. There were no barriers or elitism – a classic was a classic, whether it was British, Italian, German or, heaven forbid… Japanese.
And now, in 2011, CBG has done it again with a fresh new look, 16 more pages, even more sumptuous photography and now printed on super A4 paper (which is like A4, but wider and therefore, super).
Editor Nigel Clark says, “We wanted to broaden CBG to take account of changes in classic biking. More people are getting into old bikes but the boundaries are blurring. And these new enthusiasts have a thirst for knowledge that only a good magazine can fulfil. Adding Japanese bikes was a big decision, because, over the last few years CBG has drifted back to being a mainly British magazine, but we felt it was time to go back to the original spirit of CBG and beside, those first Japanese bikes are 50 years old – classics by any definition”.
Editor Nigel Clark went on to say, “Adding more pages and super-sizing the paper allowed us to broaden the content without compromising our traditional and loyal readership by having to reduce our British bike content.”
This new look issue also comes with a free A2 sized poster of the three BSA Gold Stars on test. The February issue of Classic Bike Guide is on sale 27th January 2011 priced at £3.95 in all good newsagents.
