Clas­sic Bikes take cen­tre stage at the Scot­tish show

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

A stag­ger­ing 465 clas­sic bikes will be on dis­play at this year’s Ca­role Nash MCN Scot­tish Show in Ed­in­burgh on March 12-13. Si­t­u­ated in the Clas­sic Bike mag­a­zine hall, Scot­land’s big­gest ever col­lec­tion of clas­sic bikes un­der one roof will span a re­mark­able 80 years of two-wheel his­tory. From very early flat tankers to late Ja­panese su­per­bikes, more than 40 of the UK’S top bike clubs will be show­cas­ing the very best ex­am­ples of their ma­chines and giv­ing ex­pert ad­vice and guid­ance to po­ten­tial own­ers.

The Clas­sic Bike Fire Up Pad­dock also makes a wel­come re­turn for 2016 and a wide va­ri­ety of road and race ma­chin­ery will be thun­der­ing into life all week­end. It’s a full sen­sory spec­ta­cle not to be missed.
