final preparations for stafford show

More than 500 traders are making final preparations ahead of Staffordshire County Showground’s annual bike event.

Taking place on 18-19 October, the Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show welcomes sellers of all the best bikes, biking bits, parts, pieces and accessories.

Around 30,000 visitors are expected to descend on the venue throughout the weekend as bargain hunters from across the UK and beyond head for the heart of Staffordshire.

Avid motorcycle restorer and top bike journalist Bertie Simmonds said: “The show is the highlight of the classic calendar and this year’s promises to be the biggest and best ever.

“There’s a real buzz in and around the showground for the weekend as the great and good of motorcycling come together for two superb days showcasing all that is best about biking.

“I for one will be searching for parts for my RD350R project in the autojumble stands; it really is amazing what you can find.”

Along with the trade and jumble items available, the traditional Bonhams Autumn Stafford Sale has a selection of lots creating wide-ranging interest in the motorcycle community with the auction house featuring a consignment of Barry Sheene memorabilia.

British musician and Blur lead guitarist Graham Coxon has donated seven machines from his prize motorcycle collection to the sale also, with proceeds to benefit UK children’s charity the NSPCC.

Advance tickets for the show are on sale until Tuesday, 14 October, with a one-day adult ticket costing just £10 – a saving of 20% on the gate price. Phone 01507 529529.
