Silk Motorcycles - Classics built in the UK

1. Silk 700S Sabre MK 2
motorcycleclassics.com The Seventies was the decade of the Superbike. But British motorcycle builder George Silk believed that discerning riders would prefer a small, lightweight motorcycle with bags of torque, decent speed and race-bred handling — a modern version of his vintage Scott motorcycle. This philosophy led to development of the 1977 Silk 700S Sabre MK 2.

It was an attractive motorcycle, but had a rather unusual-looking 656cc parallel twin leaning forward about 40 degrees, with liquid cooling and no fins on the alloy cylinder barrels. http://www.ridermagazine.com/style/vintage/retrospective-silk-700s-1975-1979.htm/

4. Silk for sale at Bonhams
Bonhams' Banbury Run sale next weekend in Oxford has a little-known gem in the ranks, a true connoisseur's machine, and the end of a long line of English two-strokes. There was a time when most UK manufacturers had a 'smoker' in their lineup, even the esteemed Velocette built only quality two-stroke lightweights for many years before introducing their overhead-camshaft 'K' series in 1925.
