The Poachers were again present at the Classic Off Road Show at Telford during February 2012, the Northern British Bike Championship Awards Presentation was held on the Saturday. The awards were given out John Giles, British ISDT Rider. Although not everybody could make the presentation ceremony, a good few riders turned out to collect their awards and goodie bags.
The stand which the Poachers set up displayed three bikes this year:
Andy Webbe – Rudge
Chris Gascoigne – Ariel
Alan Whitton – Tiger Cub
Although the weather wasn’t great, the crowd numbers were good and plenty of interest was shown in the Northern Series so hopefully a few new faces will be seen when the championship starts on the 25th March 2012
It seems the price of Pre65 Trials Bikes are fluctuating somewhat these days with offers of newly built bikes for £5,000 to a “Lightweight” Sprite with a price tag of £19,000 (which hasn’t sold….I wonder why!!!)
