Motorcycle Classics has dedicated its first Special Collector Edition to celebrating the 1970s. Many great and classic motorcycles were designed and built in the ’70s, and Motorcycle Classics has put together a 100-page special edition featuring articles that explore the decade and what it brought to the motorcycle world. The Honda GL1000 Gold Wing, Triumph X75 Hurricane, BMW R90s, Suzuki GS1000, along with many others are all covered in this glossy-page, full-color guide. Whether you’re just discovering these bikes or have been riding them since they first came on the market, you’re sure to enjoy this special edition.
