SOUTH OF ENGLAND SUMMER CLASSIC BIKE SHOW & BIKEJUMBLE REVIEW & RESULTS
16TH JULY 2017
A perfect summer’s day, a range of superb bikes in the show and a good choice of autojumble stalls all added up to a great day out at the Summer Classic Bike Show at The South of England Showground on 16th July.
In the show, the pre-1950 class was cleaned up by father and son Steve and Andy Marks. Dad Steve’s rare 1920 1300cc Henderson inline four model K was pipped to the post by son Andy’s 500cc 1934 Norton International, a real labour of love. Steve and Andy are better known to many as the Magneto Guys, where their attention to detail and pride in doing a good job keeps us all going on our old clunkers!
Michael Johnson just had to win the 1960 Class with his superb 1961 650 BSA A10 Spitfire Scrambler, a really beautiful machine. It was the first time at the Show for this genuine US-spec Spitfire Scrambler, and Mick took time off from running his stall to strike a pose on it. Mick and Carol Johnson run Surrey Cycles, the carburettor specialists.
The British Owners Club Essex put on a fine display of classic British machines and were rewarded for their efforts by winning the Best Club Stand Prize. Hope to see them back at Ardingly in October, at the popular South of England Classic Bike Show & Autojumble on Sunday 29th October.
There was plenty on sale in the autojumble, ranging from bargain projects to stunning Italian gems brought specially from Italy. On offer from Matteo from Italy were superb lightweights from Maserati, Ferrari and Ducati whilst a Benelli Sei and Laverda Jota balanced up the stall.
