Media information for Classic Motorcycle Mechanics

Front Cover

Classic Motorcycle Mechanics is a motorcycle magazine which predominantly focuses on all Japanese classic motorcycles from the 60s right through to the early 90s.

The magazine has a long history, with origins in the early 80s, and more recently found its specific Japanese niche and vision while Bob Berry was at the helm. Rod Gibson took over as the editor seven years ago, created and refined it, and was a major part of the magazine that Japanese classic motorcycle enthusiasts all over the world recognise and love today.

Like many of the Mortons portfolio of successful motorcycle titles, CMM is a niche magazine with a very specific focus on the classic Japanese motorcycle scene which is rapidly expanding with people buying bikes to restore, own and enjoy and/or as current and future investments.

This trend can be explained by CMM's demographic coming of age with so many motorcyclists of the ages 30-60, who are keen and able to tinker and have been brought up on a diet of Japanese bikes and now, are wanting and financially able to ride the motorcycles they owned or dreamed of owning in their youth.

CMM capitalises on this situation and is able to fuel our readership's need for nostalgia and inspire and help in their own projects while providing intelligent and indepth articles backed up with fantastic photography and choice of bikes that our readership expects and demands.

As the only monthly A4 glossy in the world that proclaims to cover all classic Japanese motorcycles and also backed up by an incredible and invaluable archive of rebuild features and road tests, CMM can be seen and is recognised as a tome of vital knowledge and history all for those involved with classic Japanese motorcycles.
