Newark Classic Bike Show

The Poachers committee were on hand for the first ever winter show held at Newark Showground.

The members met up on the A46 early on Saturday morning (except Andy who found himself without a van so rode his bike there!) and proceeded up to the showground, where the hall we were to set up in was found…locked! After a short wait the halls were opened to enable us to set up, we had seven bikes on display:

Mike Gallagher – 1964 Works Replica James Commando 250cc

Martin Green – 1964 Bantam Villiers Special BVS 250 cc

Michael Dawson – 1970 Wassel BSA Bantam Trials 185cc

Mark Francis – 1960 AJS 16c Trials 400cc

Andy McGill – 1959 Ariel HT5 493cc

Michael Dawson – 1950 BSA Bantam Rigid 185cc

Graham Dawson 1967 Cotton Trials 197cc

The show was well attended and we had lots of interest, and hopefully a few new members.

We also won the award “Club Stand 3rd”
