• The Classic MotorCycle
Featuring 12 period archive images, this spiral bound calendar is available for £8.49 (including UK postage) by calling 01507 529529 or by visiting www.classicmagazines.co.uk Each image is captioned and the pictures span the timescale covered by the magazine, so from the ‘Pioneer’ days to the 1960s, with one even depicting the then-James Bond George Lazenby on a BSA Rocket 3.
• Doubling up at AMC
For the 2014 calendar the AJS & Matchless Owners Club is doing something a little different by offering a choice of calendar. Both calendars feature studio images and, as in previous years, it has a calendar featuring ladies on bikes, with this year an additional calendar featuring AJS & Matchless motorcycles sans models. Go to www.jampot.com to order; each calendar is priced at £8 plus p&p and will also be available from the club stand at classic shows and events.
• Ace Classics
Now on issue six, the 2014 Ace Classics calendar features 12 Triumph twins reproduced in colour, each on a glossy A3 page of its own.
