Inside Bikes

Got a question
2018 Stafford show

The Carole Nash Classic Motorcycles Mechanics Stafford Show swung open its doors for the 24th time this weekend and with weather more akin to the spring, rather than autumn, show goers flocked to the Stafford Showground to celebrate everything that’s great about 70s, 80s and 90s motorcycles.

The yearly pilgrimage caters for all of your classic bike needs and wants.

 

Inside there was a massive selection of owners clubs, think of a make and model and it was represented. This included all of your family favourite machines like the mighty Honda CBX1000 through to screaming two strokes from yesteryear. This was spread over several halls meaning there truly is something for everyone.

If all of that nostalgia whetted your appetite to buy yourself a classic bike you weren’t short of opportunities to do so.

 

Outside in the autojumble there was no shortage of projects and barn find motorcycles looking for a new home, these included everything from tired tiddlers right up to a Yamaha OW-01 that had seen better days. There was also no shortage of used parts to help you on your way!

If you would rather buy something that was ready to ride and polish then Bonhams had an impressive array of classic bikes waiting to go under their hammer. The Suzuki RG500 Gamma with only 1 push mile on its speedo carried a guide price of £30,000.

The social side of the event is more than enough for many regular visitors, the chance to catch up with like minded folk and natter about bikes is very much evident all around the event. If you made it along you’d probably agree? If you didn’t make it this year here’s a selection of photos so you can see what you missed.
