See the bikes that made Sheene a star

Published: 12 August 2016

This year marks 40 years since Barry Sheene won his first 500GP world title. In celebration of that anniversary, a collection of his old race bikes will be on display at Classic Bike Live.

On display will be his Seeley TR500 and T500 Hi-Tac which he raced in his early career, alongside his 1979 XR27 and 1984 XR45 from his final year of racing.

Sheene clinched the first of his two world titles at Anderstorp, Sweden in 1976 and went on to win the title again in the following year.

There will also be appearances from current and former TT legends John McGuinness and Mick Grant and the show will also host an auto jumble.

Classic Bike Live will take place at Peterborough Arena between October 29 and 30. Tickets are £9 for adults or £12 on the day and children 15 or under go free.
