Classic Bike and Scooter Show in Sowerby Bridge

Posted on

The Rotary club of Sowerby Bridge (RCoSB) 4th annual Classic Bike and Scooter Show promises to be bigger and better than before.

Pre 1980 scooter and bikes can be entered into the show with 16 categories – there is a new one this year: post 1980 modern classics and custom bikes.

Please see our website www.rotarysowerbybridge.org for details on how to enter. The pre entry fee is £5 and on the day is £6. Bikes and scooters need to arrive on the day between 8am – 10am. Winners will be announced in the afternoon.

One of the star exhibits will be the Russian Ice Speedway Bike formally owned by a runner up in the 1994-2002 world championships. This 2 valve Jawa engine bike specially built for the sport has 28mm spikes in the tyres (350 in total) to ensure a grip on the ice. It is a spectacle in itself and is not to be misses as this is suspected to be the only one in the country in its current form. Read the rest of this entry »
