Mo­tor­cy­cle mem­o­ries at meet­ing

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

MO­TOR­CY­CLE en­thu­si­asts turned out in force at a spe­cial meet­ing of the Norman Cy­cles Club. More than 20 bikes turned up at Willes­bor­ough wind­mill on Sun­day for the event. Some bikes dated back to the 1940s. Club mem­ber Gary Pilcher said: “There were more bikes than we’ve ever had be­fore and we also had quite a few past em­ploy­ees from the old Norman Cy­cles fac­tory in the town.” The club, founded in 2000, has about 160 mem­bers, whose aim is to re­store the old Norman bikes. Mr Pilcher added: “Days like th­ese are great be­cause we can swap parts and get the chance to catch up.”
