Classic Bike Live 2017
This really is your last reminder to head to Peterborough Arena on the weekend of October 28/29. They’ve finalised the running order on the Classic Bike stage, marked out the display areas and made the sandwiches. Now all that's needed for a great weekend is you. And what a weekend it looks set to be.
We’ve got bikes from the late, great John Surtees’ collection, a special tribute to legendary Scottish ace Bob McIntyre and the man behind many of his bikes, Joe Potts, plus a selection from the amazing Norton collection of Ian Loram – as well as some cracking club displays.
- New Honda Gold Wing unveiled
- Yamaha reveal stunning new Niken three-wheeler
- Kawasaki unveil new-for-2018 Ninja 400
- Win loads of prizes
- Bike of the day: KTM RC8
And don’t miss the awesome concours display where some fabulous machines will be battling it out for the title of ‘best in show’.
Don’t miss guests of honour, TT great John McGuinness and sidecar racer turned frame builder Colin Seeley, either. Last year you couldn’t move round the stage when the Morcambe Missile was holding forth, and Colin Seeley has more than enough tales from a lifetime in motorcycle sport and industry to keep everyone enthralled, too. Both are bringing some of the bikes that mean a lot to them to the show – so don’t miss them, either.
Outside, the demo strip will be busy with two sessions on each day of the show. See and hear iconic race bikes including works machinery campaigned by Kevin Schwantz, Barry Sheene and Phil Read and a wonderful 1929 Norton ES2 – complete with Brooklands can. Then trawl the autojumble, be inspired by the club displays and just soak up the atmosphere at our end-of-season party.
Oh – and don’t forget to put your clocks back if you’re planning to come on Sunday.
