There has always been a strong vintage motorcycle component within the pages of Canadian Biker. Whether it be in the English Speaking column, Robert Smith’s monthly Vintage Hall or feature stories by many other contributors, the variety and interests in vintage, antique and collectable motorcycles is almost as diverse as the number of manufacturers that have built motorcycles through the years. Below are a just a few samples of our Vintage content through the years showing just how wide the spectrum is – from a built from scratch A.J.S. V4, to a Norton 650SS from 1962 to Honda’s spectacular VF1000R from the mid-1980s.
