The Cycles and Motorcycles Sections
Cycles Section: Anne Read
The bicycle has evolved and today is one of the most popular past times either for a mode of transport or leisure time on the road, track or off-road! 2018 will feature over 50 registered entries from Penny Farthings, rare exhibits and veteran cycles (pre 1915) to the ones we all grew up with such as the ‘chopper’, thus showcasing the development of the bicycle through the ages.
Some of the earliest bikes that will be on display are a 1900 and 1906 gents Singer cycles owned by Ben Amor and John Berry and are believed to be 2 of only around 15 survivors of their type. The penny farthings (or ordinaries as they are correctly referred to by those that know their bicycles!) will be on display from Brian Mortimer’s collection.
Motorcycles Section: John Grange
The Motorcycle section featuring over 200 entries representing manufacturers from across the globe. Among the marques on display are Honda, Yamaha, Harley Davidson, Moto Guzzi, HRD, AGS, James, Triumph, Royal Enfield, Rudge, Baker, BMW, Norton, Velocette, BSA, Panther, Francis Barnett, Matchless and Greeves. There will also be an abundance of Lambrettas to celebrate the mods and rockers era.
Section leader John Grange said “we always try to bring something of interest to all ages and interests, from Veteran to Vintage and Classic. From the smallest Brockhouse Corgi ‘Para’ bike to the HRD Vincent Meteor series B, from the Yamaha FS1E (my first bike!) to the Suzuki GT750, there will be something to suit everyone’s motorcycling interests. The section celebrates 100 years of motorcycles.”
The Cycles and Motorcycles sections are now closed to new entries for the 2019 show.
