Stafford Bike Show

On Saturday I visited the Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show at Stafford. This is the biggest classic bike show in the country with lots of bikes on show and for sale. The emphasis is Japanese bikes of the 60s/70s/80s. The weather was sunny so the outdoor exhibits could also be enjoyed. A big thanks to Malcolm who did the driving - a 660 mile round trip from Dundee for him.

  1. Always a very high standard at Stafford. Love the Rotary. You don't see many of them around.

  2. The bikes were so good that you wonder if they are ever ridden on the road.

  3. The RE5M above won 1st place 70s catagory at Stafford Oct 2012 and best rotary.

    It's now for sale.
