Classic Bike Live revs into action this weekend to celebrate the legends of classic motorcycling. With the chance to meet racers and their winning machines, browse indoor trade and jumble stands, meet the UK's top clubs, hear glorious classics fired-up in the paddock, listen in awe to celebs on stage and much, much more - you can count on us for a top class day out.
Get up close and personal with TT legend John McGuinness and a collection of his race machines including his Vimto Honda TSR250, his demon Vimto Honda SP1 (courtesy of Mick West Racing), his 2004 Yamaha R1 and R6 plus a load of memorabilia that's well worth seeing.
Gritty Yorkshireman Mick Grant will be in attendance with his fiery Kawasaki KR750 which he's owned since he raced it in 1977. You can catch him on stage to hear all about the glory years and his exploits at the 1981 TT, plus hear first-hand about his fierce rivalry with Barry Sheene in the '70s.
SEE THE BIKES THAT MADE SHEENE A STAR
In celebration of Barry Sheene's 40th anniversary of his first world championship, we will be showcasing a collection of his race bikes, including 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.
