Bikes take over at vintage transport extravaganza

A staggering 230 bikes will be displayed at the Stroud Vintage Transport and Engine Club (SVTEC) annual show next month, prompting organisers to comment: “The turn-out almost makes it a bike show on its own!”

The show, at South Cerney Airfield in Cirencester, Gloucestershire, 4-6 August, will celebrate ‘The Days Gone By’.

Among the motorcycle marques on display are Honda, Yamaha, Harley-Davidson, Moto Guzzi, HRD, AGS, James, Triumph, Royal Enfield, Rudge, Baker, BMW, Norton, Velocette, BSA, Panther, Francis Barnett, Matchless and Greeves.

There will also be an abundance of Lambretta’s to celebrate the mods and rockers era and the show will host the Cotton Motorcycle Club national meeting.

Motorcycle section leader John Grange said: “we always try to bring something of interest to all ages and interests, from Veteran to Vintage and Classic. From the smallest Brockhouse Corgi ‘Para’ bike to the HRD Vincent Meteor series B, from the Yamaha FS1E – my first bike! – to the Suzuki GT750, there will be something to suit everyone’s motorcycling interests. The section celebrates 100 years of motorcycles.”

There will be a trade stand area with more than 100 stalls, models tents, craft marques and specialist displays of memorabilia from a bygone era.


The Stroud Vintage Transport and Engine Club is a non-profit making organisation which raises money for national and local charities and up to 30 will be represented on site raising money and awareness of their respective causes.
