Clas­sic bikes shine in sum­mer sun

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Cats And Camshafts -

Hordes of bik­ers headed to Ham­street for the Rom­ney Marsh Clas­sic Mo­tor­cy­cle Show and Bike­jum­ble.

Vis­i­tors ad­mired a wide range of clas­sic bikes in the sun­shine and sam­pled lo­cal ales from the beer tent off Marsh Road on Sun­day.

They en­joyed a hog roast, live mu­sic from Tim Phillips and 1066 Rock­it­men, and matches of mo­to­ball – five-a-side mo­tor­cy­cle football.

Mo­tor­cy­clists car­ry­ing out re­pairs or restora­tion projects could also pick up parts and ac­ces­sories from a range of stalls. Or­gan­iser Julie Di­plock, from ELK Pro­mo­tions, said: “It was ex­cel­lent. We were re­ally busy and the weather helped. It was al­most too hot but I can’t com­plain.”

She added: “There was a big crowd there. The traf­fic was hor­ren­dous be­cause I think Cam­ber Sands was full. There was traf­fic stretch­ing from Brook­land to Rye.”
