Published: 19 August 2017

Norton collector Ian Loram will be showcasing 10 bikes from this vast collection at this year’s Classic Bike Live event at Peterborough Arena October 28-29. Norton CEO Stuart Garner is bringing a further selection of Norton machinery.

Visitors to the show, sponsored by Footman James, will be able to see Ian’s 1926 Maudes Trophy-winning Model 19 combination, a 1927 Model CJ (Camshaft Junior), a 1928 cammy CS1 racer and a 1929 ES2 restored by the late Doctor George Cohen. From the ’30s, there’ll be a 1935 Model 20 twin-port and the 1937 Model 35 twin-port that won best single at the Norton gathering at the 100th anniversary TT in 2007.

Completing the line-up of Ian’s bikes are a ’56 Featherbed International, ’63 Atlas Scrambler, ’77 MkIII Commando and ’88 Rotary Classic. Stuart Garner, CEO of the revived Norton marque, is joining in the fun at Classic Bike Live, too. He’s bringing the first Norton ever produced – the 1902 Energette – along with a MkII Commando, a current-model Domiracer and one of the brand new V4s. Stuart is also going to be giving a talk on both days of the show.

Outside, the popular start-up area has been expanded to give show-goers the chance to see some iconic metal on the move on the special Legends in Motion strip. Classic Team Suzuki have already pledged to fire up some of their classic raceware and the strip is the place to see, hear and smell some amazing machines in action. Club entries are still coming in thick and fast, the autojumble is filling up and so, too, is the concours – with big cash prizes up for grabs. It’s all looking good for the last big classic show of the year. Don’t miss it.
