Classic Bike Live wows with TT legends and a good old jumble rummage

1 of 7

Classic Bike Live will be taking place at the Peterborough Arena, October 29-30. Guests of Honour and TT legends John McGuinness and Mick Grant will be in attendance alongside their racing machines that have brought them both so much success at the Isle of Man mountain course. 

McGuiness will be rolling out a unique selection of TT race bikes from his private collection covering every facet of his mountain course career – from his first race in 1996 to present day, including his winning 1999 Vimto Honda TSR50.  

Grant will also be re-living the good old days with a selection of bikes (including the legendary KR750) that helped make him one of the most popular riders on the Superbike, TT and GP circuits.

UK’s top clubs – including VMCC, VJMC, Ducati Owner’s Club, the Royal Enfield Owners Club, the Classic Racing Motorcycle Club – are due to attend with plenty of bikes to drool over.


Completing the star guest line up is Henry Cole and Sam Lovegrove from the TV show Shed & Buried. Alongside Classic Bike’s Rick Parkington with a selection of his own oily-rag restorations and talking Rick’s Fixes.

Norton at CBL

Lifting the lid on both Norton’s racing efforts in the early ’70s is the man who bridges the gap between riding and the workshop – innovative engineer and Norton works rider Peter Williams.

Williams will talk about the engineering that kept the Norton twins competitive, joined by his Spaceframe and Monocoque specials, courtesy of the National Motorcycle Museum.
