SF230 subs arrive today!

Today we are standing on the roof of SF Towers, cackling manically as we dispatch our army of freshly-printed magazines to all corners of the globe like little papery winged monkeys.

It’s our special ‘Chinese Dentist’ issue. SF Tooth Hurty features, on the cover, Aaron’s awesome stealth turbo GSX-R. This is a stunning piece of home-built high performance automotive art, light on frills and heavy on thrills, and so we’ve improved on it in the only way we could – with a liberal and delicious sprinkling of gorgeous top model; Chloe Goodman.

Inside you’ll find a stunning Bandit 1200 with a home-made frame, knocked up entirely by Joe from Scotland. We’ve got Dodge’s latest ‘Street Sleeper Streetfighter’ Hayabusa, with the whole story from the monowheeling maniac himself, plus a unique and mentalist GS750 from the Stateside streetfighter maestro Full Of Hate and even a lithe, big-bored RG500 Skoal Bandit from Gloucestershire.

We’ve also got Gary Bond’s ‘Dukes Of Hazzard’ Bandit, a quirky and very original HL500 Superbiker flat track/supermoto race replica from New York, a Minsk café racer from Belarus, some striking pics from Icon’s drift video shoot and many more top modified motorcycles.

On top of that there’s our ProFile on drag racer Steve Clutterbuck, our monthly Vizman illustration and Jet Metal cartoon strip, plus all the News, Stuff, product reviews, opinions, tantrums and irrelevant wittering you’ve come to expect from your favourite rag. There’s also the latest on our impending FighterFest UK event. You can’t afford to miss this one and, if you’re a subscriber, that’s fine – cos you won’t.

SF230 arrives with UK subscribers today – in shops next Thursday 7th March.

 On the cover is Scott Belshaw’s VFR750, a subtle, yet full-on remodelled example of Honda’s V4 from Down Under. Elsewhere in the magazine you’ll find Mr T’s awesome water-cooled flat tracker, which took Best Streetfighter at 2012’s Brent Cross event, and the FT theme is continued with the coolest Husqvarna SMR570 ‘tracker you’ve ever seen.

The Hard-Up Choppers Savage-framed Bandit narrows the gap between streetfighter and café racer still further.
