Welcome to the Classic Bikers Club website. We believe we offer visitors a unique resource drawn from our massive archive of images and literature going back to the turn of the twentieth century. News, image galleries, road tests, archive, videos and workshop and reference features are just some of the gems in this nostalgic treasure-trove.
There are three ways to access the website. You can browse as an ordinary user, or register (which is free) and gain access to our money-saving competitions and be able to contribute to the discussion area. Or, if you're a subscriber to one of our classic motorcycle titles listed below, you can enter your unique six digit Customer/Subscription ID number* into your registered profile to gain access to content not visible to ordinary users.
* Your Customer/Subscription is on all subscription communications from Mortons Media Group.
Registering is required to enter any online competitions and to contribute to the Classic Bikers Club discussion forums.
If you are a subscriber to any of our magazines below*, you can view all CBC content, which includes the 90,000-word authoritative A-Z Encyclopaedia of Classic Motorcycles, and all other Reference, Archive and Workshop features which are hidden to ordinary users. If you don’t currently subscribe to one of our titles view them on the www.classicmagazines.co.uk website.
