big trade presence promised at Telford

The UK’s biggest classic off-road motorcycle event takes place at Telford’s International Centre this weekend, 20-21 February, with organisers promising there will be hundreds of trade stands, club exhibits and private entries among the show line-up.

Sponsored by well-known industry name Hagon Shocks, the Classic Dirt Bike Show will welcome famous faces from the world of off-road including Nick Jefferies, Jim Aird and Wayne le Marquand – as well as former speedway ace Barry Briggs.

On the display front, bikes from across the glory years of off-road motorcycling will be showcased including – among others – the Manx Norton-based machine on which Les Archer became the last European Motocross Champion in 1956.

Also on show will be the recently rediscovered BSA trials bike used by Alan Lampkin when he became the last-ever winner of the Scottish Six Days Trial to be mounted on a British four-stroke 10 years later.

All-round racer Sammy Miller – a 1960s trials champion – will also be in attendance and talking to crowds on stage bringing with him three of the rarest bikes from the vast collection housed at his museum.

Visitors will get a taste of the 1920s through a Brough Superior Pendine racer – similar to the one ridden by Lawrence of Arabia – along with an exotic Italian Bianchi and a Talon Mick Mar trials model.

Hundreds of trade stands, club exhibits and private entries complete the jam-packed show line-up.
