More than 30,000 bike enthusiasts flocked to sunny Staffordshire for the 2017 Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show on 14 and 15 October – and it wasn’t hard to see why.
Already established as one of the UK’s premier shows for classic motorcycle fans, this year’s event featured a stunning line-up of vintage vehicles and high-profile guests.
And with glorious weather aplenty, it was a weekend to remember for bikers from all over the UK and beyond.
An unforgettable ride through time
Thousands of bikers arrived to show off their own classic motorcycles, giving visitors the chance to admire up-close some of the most beautiful motorbikes ever built.
Dozens of clubs also brought the machines they’ve spent years lovingly restoring, from classic off-roaders through to a variety of specials from the 60s, 70s, 80s – and before.
Among those taking in the sights were former British Supersport champion Steve Plater, former Superbike World Championship runner-up Aaron Slight, and motorcycle racer and journalist Frank Melling.
Getting a piece of the action
There was certainly no shortage of things to do at the 2017 Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show. There was plenty of tension in the Bonhams autumn sale, where several magnificent bikes went under the hammer.
Collectors were quick to flock to the traders and dealers, searching for that elusive part, spare, or piece of biking memorabilia they’d been chasing.
And the dirt bike trails gave those who wanted it a hands-on piece of the action – as well as memories that will last a lifetime.
