Some lovely bikes there but I'm with Choppsie on the purple Yamaha, that is just wrong......  :thumbsdown

Is it just me and I sign of getting old, but I struggle to think of most of those bikes as classics. How can they be, they are the bikes I was riding a "couple" of years back.
Classic bikes are the likes of Gold Stars and Manx Nortons....... lol
Move on be brave don?t weep at my grave because I?m no longer here, but please never let your memories of me disappear.

To the young un's on here Biker they may seem classics.

I was brought up around these bikes and as you say they are still pretty current bikes compared to the Manx Norton's, the early cafe racers of the 100 club etc

i didnt think the show was worth the ?14 entry fee it was more like a huge auto jumble sale with a few bikes on show there was some old brit bikes on show but there not really my thing triumph bonies and alike are cool but the really old stuff is not . food prices were day light robbery aswell ?5 for a pastie ?3 for very small chips and ?2 for a cup of tea . but getting to see barry sheene actual race bikes made it worth it.

Those prices are ridiculous!! I so hate the "rip off" mentality that seems all too prevalent these days >:(
