Do any of you guys out there fit the requirement below and would be willing to help Chris out and see your loved one recorded for posterity? If so contact him directly on the contacts supplied
Apologies for the email out of the blue – I’m the Features Editor for Practical Sportsbikes, and we’re trying to find someone who’s just completed a CB1100R restoration for a feature. I was hoping that you might know of someone, or might be able to put the word out in the club please? We’re after one that’s finished in the last year, on the road and available in the next few weeks, with pictures documenting the build.
I’m happy for my contact details to be advertised on the club forum or whatever – office direct line is 01733 468 396, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Was anyone able to help out with this request? Are we due to see some glorious Phoenix risen from the ashes in a near future edition?December 11, 2012 at 11:12 pm #11212
I dunno if they contacted Paul Ashworth or not? I emailed Chris Newbeginning or whatever and he said he would come back to me if they didn’t get any takersDecember 12, 2012 at 2:08 pm #11213

Once the mag is out I was told I could have copies of everything,the pics really are something else with the bike set against the sea,they also have pics and videos taken on the Southern 100 courseDecember 12, 2012 at 7:57 pm #11217AnonymousInactive
Well done Paul. Looking forward to seeing the B in print.December 12, 2012 at 10:32 pm #11218Trevor HughesKeymaster
Well done you…..When I had a chat with Chris he said he would like an RB for this article because he was aware of Andy’s RC and would like to use that in a follow up article early next year.December 14, 2012 at 5:29 pm #11221AnonymousInactive
Great to have another article in print about the CB1100R. You mentioned the need for new tyres. When they did an article with my RB against a Katana and a Kwaka Z1000 back in 2010 they
got Bridgstone to stump up a set of new tyres for each bike. No new tyres for you this time then?
SteveDecember 15, 2012 at 9:38 am #11224
Steve the answer is no,they did less than 50 miles on the bike,the phone call came at very short notice so there wouldnt have been any time to sort it in time,it had to be done when it was for their deadlines,Manx weather restrictions and my own personal reasons.On the other hand I have just been sent 140 proffesional images of my bike in lovely familiar surroundings and being ridden on local roads in the manner Honda intended so I cant really complain.Oh they did fill her up with fuel before bringing her homeDecember 15, 2012 at 10:29 am #11225AnonymousInactive
When is the article to be published Paul?December 15, 2012 at 10:43 pm #11226Trevor HughesKeymaster
When my bike was used for a photo shoot down at Brighton all I got was a sandwich, I’d have been very happy with a full tank of fuel.
Are there any pictures we could use to advertise the 2014 meeting?December 16, 2012 at 12:34 pm #11227
Andy as they were in a rush to do the test I assume its for an article pretty soon,the next issue is out on the 19th and according to the current issue will fearure a 916,so maybe it will be in the issue on sale in the middle of Jan
Trev there are around 140 very high resolution images,to give you some idea the folder size is 1.6 GB,they are happy for me to use them for my own personal use,but have said the resolution must be reduced before they go anywhere public,for example on forums.I intend speaking to Mr Larkin about this at some point.As for promoting the 2014 get together I suppose they would be ideal combining the bike and the IOM as they do .Maybe something to speak to the editor of the magazine about.As soon as we have reduced a couple I will stick a taster on hereDecember 17, 2012 at 10:35 am #11229
