CEMCC Show Day

Old Bike Australasia - - RALLY ROUNDUP - Re­port and pho­tos Jim Scays­brook

27 Septem­ber – En­ga­dine, NSW

Held at Cooper Street Re­serve in En­ga­dine, south of Syd­ney, each year since 1999, the Clas­sic En­thu­si­asts an­nual Show Day is al­ways a keenly an­tic­i­pated event. Six cat­e­gories of en­tries, from vet­er­ans to mod­ern, plus a Com­pe­ti­tion sec­tion, en­sures a se­lec­tion of bikes to suit ev­ery taste. This year en­tries were down slightly, pos­si­bly due to the re­cent dodgy Syd­ney weather, but the day it­self was held in per­fect sun­shine. Judg­ing is via the votes from the en­trants them­selves; each en­trant re­ceives a vot­ing slip as well as a food ticket. Show­ing there is life in the older brigade, the dis­play in­cluded some stun­ning re­cent restoratio­n in the Vet­eran and Vin­tage sec­tion, and the Com­pe­ti­tion bikes were as colour­ful and var­ied as ever.
