Mac­cles­field Mo­tor­cy­cle Show

Old Bike Australasia - - WARSAW TECHNICAL MUSEUM - Re­port and pho­tos Rob Lewis

This year’s Lions Fundrais­ing bike show on Novem­ber 4th in­cluded mod­ern ma­chines adding to the clas­sics on dis­play, bring­ing to­tal en­tries to al­most 400. The BMW Own­ers Club showed 24 bikes and col­lected the hand­some shield for the range, from very early to cur­rent ex­am­ples. Show & Shine awards went to seven bikes – the last-minute prize go­ing to a BMW K100 Café Racer that caught the nos­tal­gic eye of show con­vener and judge Fred Keal who said he wished he’d kept his. Spec­ta­tors were mostly ar­riv­ing on bikes, with about 1,000 bikes and 2,000 on­look­ers to view the swap and sell ta­bles and trade tents. This town sports oval had cricket and foot­ball club rooms open to sup­ply a great range of food and drink. Four bands pro­vided day-long mu­sic of the right kind to meet the mood. Own­ers of ma­chines and trade or pri­vate sell­ers in­ter­ested in sup­port­ing this worth­while char­ity event should con­tact Fred on 0449 664370.

On­look­ers soak up the sun­shine on the oval.
