classic dealer sponsors show competition

Comet Classics of Hampshire has sponsored the Pride of Ownership competition at the Classic Motorbike Show to be held at Birmingham’s NEC from 13-15 November. Around 25-30 motorbikes and scooters will line up in the hope of being awarded best in show.

Comet Classics, making its NEC debut, will also be bringing a selection of classic and vintage motorcycles from its Emsworth showroom and global distribution centre along with three American trucks including the 1951 Ford F1 pick-up from the latest series of Wheeler Dealers.

Owned by Martin Webb and Ray Waller, Comet Classics started as a private collection and is now a three-year-old business with over 100 classics motorcycles and petrol pumps in stock. Between them, Webb and Waller have more than 80 years of automotive and motorcycle experience.

Webb said: “We’re delighted to sponsor the Pride of Ownership competition and can’t wait to see the bikes at the NEC. There’s already a diverse line-up of entries submitted so the final display should be very exciting indeed.”

As well as the Pride of Ownership, around 30 clubs will be displaying motorbikes plus the National Motorcycle Museum returns with its “Where Are They Now” feature including special guests. There will also be a BikeJumble, the Ace Café and the ever popular vintage Wall of Death.
