Our sis­ter ti­tle MCN’S Lon­don bash gets big­ger and bet­ter ev­ery year. This year, Clas­sic Bike will be show­cas­ing the 10 fi­nal­ists in our Barn Find of the Year com­pe­ti­tion, spon­sored by Godin Sport­ing Cars and Mo­tor­cy­cle and Coys Auc­tions, and drum­ming up yet more votes from show vis­i­tors be­fore an­nounc­ing the win­ner on Sun­day af­ter­noon. Some­one’s go­ing to walk away from Ex­cel with 1000 guineas to put to­wards bring­ing their barn find back to life – and your vote could make the dif­fer­ence (see page 31).

Else­where, there’ll be a host of clas­sic traders and an all-new cen­tre­piece for the live ac­tion area, the Miche­lin Thun­der­drome. In­spired by a 1900s era board track, the oval – with its 45° bank­ing – hosts reg­u­lar rac­ing through­out the show, with former World Su­per­bike stars Ruben Xaus, Chris Walker and Neil Hodg­son among the stars tak­ing part.

Don’t for­get the Coys auc­tion on Satur­day 17thm ei­ther. Whether you’re in the mar­ket for a clas­sic or you just fancy check­ing out the auc­tion scene, the ac­tion in the sale room is al­ways ad­dic­tive. You can also catch up with TT leg­end John Mcguin­ness pulling pints in the John Mcguin­ness bar while shar­ing a few tales from his road rac­ing ca­reer. Then catch up with the lat­est retro, café racer and cus­tom builds on the spe­cial dis­play hosted by our sis­ter mag­a­zine Built.

There’s also a ride out to the show from the Ace Cafe on the Sun­day at 9.30am. mc­n­mo­tor­cy­cleshow.com
