25th Bristol Classic Motorcycle Show Sponsored by Carole Nash Insurance
Consultants Ltd.

The interest from traders, club members, autojumblers and private concours
entrants has been fantastic.

Indeed, the response to the show this year has been so good that we have had
more applications for stands than ever before, and we have been forced to
hire an extra hall to accommodate the extra applicants. The new hall will
become the temporary home for an extra seven clubs over the weekend, five of
which will be making their debuts at the show. And there will also be more
autojumblers than ever before. It will certainly be the biggest and best
Bristol Classic Motorcycle show ever.

The show itself is regarded by many avid fans to be the traditional season
opener on the classic calendar, offers thousands of enthusiasts a terrific
location on which to descend to collectively discuss their winter rebuilds
and the riding season ahead.

It also offers them the chance to stand and stare at the hundreds of
marvellous, jaw dropping machines that will be on display either on the club
stands or in the private concours section. The diversity demonstrated by
club and private displays is so great that it is surely impossible for
anybody to attend the show and to say that they have not seen something that
has genuinely fascinated them. There will be something to suit all tastes,
whether it be classic Japanese, Italian, American, British, or even scooter.

New clubs to the Bristol show include the Gold Star Owners Club and the
Katana Owners Club. And a warm welcome back goes to the Black Hawk
Motorcycle Club who missed the show last year. Expect the quality of stands
to be the best ever seen at Bristol too, as there will be a 500 first prize
for the best club stand. The club prize initiative has already proved
popular at the two Stafford shows, with the result that the quality of club
stands has got better over time, with more clubs adopting themes on their

The standard of the private concours is absolutely amazing judging by the
applications that we have received. We have so many superb bikes attending
the show - many with fascinating histories. We have for example a 49cc, 1961
Heinkel Pearle moped attending the show. The Heinkel moped was advanced for
its time as the creators Heinkel were the manufacturers of the first jet
engine aircraft in 1940s. And on the Mortons stand, you can feast your eyes
on the Ariel's first Square Four - the actual Olympia Show model from 1931 -
and Mick Grant's TT winning 500 Kawasaki triple from 1975.
