Motorcycle Monthly - - The Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show -

Those who have been to ev­ery Ca­role Nash Clas­sic Mo­tor­cy­cle Me­chan­ics Show (and I bet there are a few of you out there) might want to skip this first bit: 2015 marks the 22nd run­ning of the world-renowned bike event. That’s a lot of history. In fact, some of the new­est mod­ern-clas­sics which we’ll be cel­e­brat­ing were prob­a­bly new when the first show took place. A scary thought!

With all of that history comes plenty of tra­di­tion, and as ever we’ve done our best to up­hold it for 2015. The traders, the clubs, the dis­play bikes, the ac­tiv­i­ties, the auc­tion... it’s all hap­pen­ing and hav­ing talked to many of the sellers and ex­hibitors at­tend­ing this year, the stan­dard is go­ing to be as high as ever.

On the other hand, we’re well aware that just be­cause the show has 21 suc­cess­ful years un­der its belt, that doesn’t mean we can rest on our lau­rels. In 2014 we in­tro­duced Cav­al­cade Ses­sions to the show­ground’s main ring, and this has proved to be a pop­u­lar ad­di­tion which will be mak­ing its re­turn. At our April event in Stafford we launched the Restora­tion Theatre, where ex­pert ad­vice on restor­ing and main­tain­ing old bikes is de­liv­ered in sep­a­rate ses­sions held through­out the day. That’s be­ing in­tro­duced to the Oc­to­ber event as well.

These cer­tainly aren’t fun­da­men­tal changes, but de­vel­op­ments to a muchloved for­mula which we’re con­fi­dent will give visi­tors an even more rounded and jam-packed show ex­pe­ri­ence.

This Show Guide pro­vides the nec­es­sary in­for­ma­tion on ev­ery­thing tak­ing place, but if you have any ques­tions once you’re through the gates then our in­for­ma­tion desk is al­ways manned. Be­fore, dur­ing or af­ter the show you can get all the latest from our web­site – clas­sicbikeshows. com – where you will also find links to our Face­book, Twit­ter and In­sta­gram pages, plus in­for­ma­tion on how to down­load our Clas­sic Bike Shows App avail­able for Ap­ple and An­droid de­vices.

All that’s left for me to say is thank you to ev­ery­one in­volved in the or­gan­i­sa­tion and de­liv­ery of the event. You are what makes the show the spec­ta­cle that it is, and we look for­ward to wel­com­ing you all on Oc­to­ber 17-18… and then for many years to come.
