A special Classic Suzuki Sunday will be held in Northamptonshire next month and will showcase a range of bikes made famous in years gone by.
The event at the Super Sausage Cafe, located on the A5 in Potterspury near Towcester, will feature five famous Suzuki race machines, including Barry Sheene's 1975 XR14 RG500 and Kevin Schwantz's championship winning RGV500 from 1993, Suzuki Bulletin reported.
In addition to the grand prix bikes, the event will include an appearance by three-times British Superbike Champion John Reynolds. Visitors will be able to meet the 2004 champion and see the Rizla Suzuki GSX-R1000 that took him to his last title.
Chris Murray, from the Super Sausage Café, said that the café welcomes all bikers and has a strong classic scene. In fact, several clubs use the café as their base.
"With Suzuki bringing the classic racers along, we welcome our customers to turn up on their own classic Suzuki machines and hope to offer some rewards on the day too," Murray added.
This is the second time that Suzuki GB has teamed up with the Super Sausage Café this year.
The event runs from 9am to 3pm on Saturday 7 September, giving visitors plenty of time to view the iconic bikes from Suzuki's racing past.
Classic Suzuki Sunday is organised in conjunction with Suzuki's Vintage Parts Programme, which enables many popular older models to stay on the road thanks to the brand's commitment to continue sourcing and supplying genuine parts at "real-world prices."
