The Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic Show takes place this weekend, January 5-6, at the Newark Showground in Nottinghamshire, with guest of honour superbike racer Chris ‘The Stalker’ Walker.
A huge range of trade stands will offer a wealth of parts and products, a dozen clubs will showcase their members’ best motorcycles and private exhibitors will give showgoers a glimpse of some rare machines.
Among these will be seven bikes owned by local David Wood, 56, including a 1965 BSA A65 that has been in his possession since he was 17 years old. It is one of his most prized possessions and, despite being wrecked on a number of occasions it’s now in pristine condition.
Also at the show will be the new Classic Scooter World hall, where classic and custom scooters will be displayed. Already booked to appear is a Vespa SS180 that was owned by Peter Quaife, the original bass player of The Kinks.
The show is still open for club and private entrants and cash prizes will be available for best displays and the finest motorcycles and there’s free parking too. Show opens 9am to 5pm on the Saturday and 9am to 4pm on the Sunday.
Adult tickets cost £8 while children go free! More information from www.classicbikeshows.com
New this year is a dedicated scooter hall, packed with classics and custom scooters, plus evening entertainment.
The Newark showground is just off the A1 Newark junction. Folow the A46 to Lincoln and watch for signposts advertising the ground.
Full address is The Showground, Lincoln Road, Winthorpe, Newark, Nottinghamshire NG24 2NY.
We look forward to seeing you there.
As usual, the Classic Bikers Club team will be reporting from the Show, so pop back regularly for updates.
