This CX500 below belongs to one of the clubs area managers, he has been busy rebuilding this right up until the show, now its virtually complete. On our club banners we have the words "I used to have one of those".
Below we have a nice example of a Triumph 110.
This Ariel was a fabulous condition, I suppose I should point out that i could not find a programme anywhere for this years event, so I cant give year, model etc.
A fine example of a Norton here.
Below, a 1921 Triumph model H.
This outstanding 1958 500cc "Gold Star"won a best in class, as you see by the Rosette.
The really well kept, class winning "Royal Enfield"below, is taxed and regularly ridden.
You don't see many of these about any more,Italian bikes aren't known for their longevity. This class winning 100cc three cylinder "Laverda Jota"was in its day the fastest factory street bike, with a top speed of close to 140mph, that in around 1976 !!!. Nice clean lines too but a bit of a heavy animal apparently.
Below, this classic "Triumph Boneville" was one of the later ones as its a 750cc model.
A fine example of a "Royal Enfield Bullet" this is a 350cc model.
Below, if I remember correctly this fabulous pair of bikes were "Tritons", these comprised of the famous "Norton Featherbed"frame, with a "Triumph engine.These bikes gave the handling of the famous "norton" frame with the extra power of the "Triumph" engine.
A very early model of "Royal Enfield".
With 4 large halls full of Motorcycles, Parts, Club stands and accessories this is a really good day out for motorcycle enthuiasts all over, with plenty of food and Tea outlets too. Sue and I bought our Grandson a Crash Helmet, plus ourselves a few things that we needed.
Joke of the day.
"Absolutely," the lawyer responded.
The butcher immediately shot back, "Good! You owe me £7.99 for the roast your dog stole from me this morning."
The lawyer, without a word, writes the butcher a check for £7.99. A few days later, the butcher, browsing through his mail, finds an envelope from the lawyer.
The contents reads "Consultation: £25.00."
