Classic Motorcycle Mechanics

Nice little write up on a 600 Tenere 3aj Mk1 in this months issue.
Prices are rising for good condition examples.
Truly a classic bike on all levels.

I think were partly to blame there, Geoff had said "were shooting ourselves in the foot here you know that" (meaning writing about it on forums and prices have gone up) as Geoff embarks on another 3AJ restoration.

I think the bike that's undervalued in the UK is the S10 (XTZ750) they fetch a small fortune down under.

Mezo.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
