Fed up with the weather? Here’s something to cheer you up, then. A whole bunch of discounts and special offers and even some FREE (!) wotnots, just for RealClassic readers…
Head South To The Sun!
Now is the moment to leave behind the British summer and scamper off to the Spanish sunshine. Run by RealClassic Clubman Phil, Bike-Astur are based in the beautiful Asturias region, and offer guided tours on Royal Enfield Electras among other activities and entertainment.
English-speaking guides take you on a riding holiday in the splendid scenery of the Asturias region; bring your own bike or use one of Bike-Astur’s fleet of Royal Enfields. A wide range of other activities includes walking, fishing, yoga, painting, pony-trekking, golfing and heaps more. Tours are normally six days or eight days long.
RealClassic Club members can claim a discount when they book – the discount will vary depending on the length of your stay and the type of holiday you book. Have your membership number to hand when you get in touch…

Real Life Toys are great for the grandchildren (or for your own children, if you’re a late starter or they are late developing!). These fully functional, miniature motorised vehicles come as complete cars, kits, or patterns and parts – so you can assemble them yourself if you’re handy with the spanners. RLT supply paper patterns and a build manual full of instructions. All the manuals contain easy to read workshop drawings for those who like to manufacture the metalwork – but all parts, including some ready-cut body panels, are available from stock.
For those who want a speedy build there are some complete bodies, ready to prepare and paint, plus bonnets and grille units available, saving time and effort. There are full instructions on driving, charging, servicing and maintaining this child’s toy to keep it in tip top condition for many generations to come.
Real Life Toys is run by RC Clubman Richard, and he doesn’t normally give any sort of discounts… BUT… just for us, he’s offering £5 off a set of DIY patterns and build manual, which is normally £33.50, and £25 off a kit of parts to build your own ‘RealClassic Children’s Toylander’, a Land Rover-style car kit at £749, or the Tractor kit at £725. You must mention RealClassic and have your membership number to hand when you order.
RC SPECIAL OFFER: For magazine subscribers only. £5 off DIY patterns. Or £25 off the kit to build an RC Toylander
