I'll be there next weekend, Saturday and Sunday manning the stand for my local club, the Kings Norton Motorcycle Club. Pop in and say hello if you are attending👍

I've been going to the show for a number of years. My friend and I drive over from Northern Ireland in his 1976 Renault 12 and stay for two days. I'll certainly call in. Get out the good biscuits! Tea, milk, one sugar, stirred anti-clockwise.

Yes, it's the Lancaster Insurance Classic Car Show. Mostly cars but always a good number of interesting bikes. Couple of the halls are given over to different services like powder coating, tools, manuals, autojumble etc.

Ahh.. I see. Might just try and nip down and have a look. Thanks for the heads up Ron 👍👍
Oh and if I do manage to get down. Mines tea with NO sugar and I’m not fussed which way it’s stirred. Although I do prefer YORKSHIRE tea bags 😜??
Cheers, Michael

Forgot to say, there is a motorcycle auction on the Sunday as well. Look up the different lots on the Silverstone Auctions website. Show motorcycles are usually in Hall 5.

Check out the "Book Tickets" section as it looks like all tickets for the Saturday are sold out. Car parking is about £16 per day.

Bike now installed on stand at far end of Hall 5. Will look forward to seeing anybody who can make it. If we haven't met before, I'll try to remember to wear my CrazyFrog badge. Hobnobs will be available by request 🤣

This Royal Enfield looks interesting, wonder how much it will sell for. Hope to see you on Saturday morning all being well. Leaving here soon to catch the 4am ferry over to Cairnryan. Staying at a Premier Inn near Tamworth on Friday and Saturday nights. I would like to put my request in now for the Hobnobs, Saturday and Sunday. :P :P

Now that RE kickstart could be a right pain in the shin! ::)

Spend thousands on the ally casting moulds and forget that you have to start it!  :-X

Historical interest, maybe? But, £5,000! :o

Have a good showtime.

Good health, Bill

Great to meet you Ron, and hope you have a safe journey home. Here are a few highlights of the show, including a Brough Soerior for the cognoscenti!
