Real Classic - - Backwards Glance -

In case you miss us at the Stafford Show, the RC Road­show is also booked to ap­pear at the Na­tional Mo­tor­cy­cle Mu­seum’s LIVE event on Saturday 4th Novem­ber. This will par­tic­u­larly ap­peal to RC read­ers, as ad­mis­sion to the NMM is com­pletely FREE (ex­cla­ma­tion mark!) for the day. Not that you lot are cheap­skates, or any­thing. No; who wouldn’t want to see the largest col­lec­tion of Bri­tish clas­sic bikes in the world for noth­ing – and en­joy a cram-packed sched­ule of spe­cial at­trac­tions? Speak­ing of which…

NEW MU­SEUM LAY­OUT. The show halls were re­cently re­con­fig­ured to dis­play a dif­fer­ent ar­ray of iconic and in­spir­ing ma­chines from the NMM col­lec­tion. So even if you’ve been be­fore, there’s bound to be some­thing new to see

BITS TO BUY. The weather can do its worst and it doesn’t mat­ter: there’s an in­door au­to­jum­ble and trade dis­plays snug and warm in the con­fer­ence cen­tre. That may be where you’ll find the RC Crew, along­side Tri­umph, Nor­ton and Bon­hams auc­tion­eers. Ain’t we keep­ing high-fa­lutin’ com­pany, eh?

MEET THE EX­PERTS. Some of the mu­seum’s spe­cial­ist sup­pli­ers and crafts­men, in­clud­ing the NMM’s own restora­tion team, will be on hand to chat and an­swer your tech­ni­cal ques­tions. ‘How big should my ham­mer be?’ is not a suit­able ques­tion

STARS ON STAGE. Pun­dit Steve Par­rish will host two ses­sions (11am and 2pm) chat­ting live with Fred­die Spencer and Carl Fog­a­rty and their part­ners. Other star rid­ers in­clud­ing Peter Hick­man, Michael Rut­ter, Maria Costello, John ‘Mooneyes’ Cooper and Peter Wil­liams will also be mak­ing per­sonal ap­pear­ances

REV IT UP! See and hear some of the most fa­mous race ma­chines in the world be­ing fired up for your en­ter­tain­ment

LAST CHANCE! The draw for a 1960 BSA Gold Star will be made in the af­ter­noon, so buy your raf­fle tick­ets rapido to be in with a chance to win

Bikes can park ab­so­lutely free at the Mu­seum but there is a £5 charge for each car (so share!). Raf­fle tick­ets and fur­ther info from 01675 444123 /
