A show that has grown in popularity is the Motorcycle Mechanics Show, which celebrates modern classics from the 70s, 80s and 90s and will be returning to the Staffordshire County Showground for its second instalment of the year, this time in October.
Over 30,000 enthusiasts are expected to flock to the showground to revel in over 900 traders, autojumble and dealers offering the chance to source that elusive part or spare for your projects. On top of this, there will also be an array of club stands, Bonhams returns with an Autumn sale, live action, special guest stars and ultimately classic competition machines.
Trade stands at Stafford will be held throughout five halls, including the main hall and balcony! If there is something specific you are after, it may be worth making a list before you descend with so much to browse and see. Whether you are after classic bikes, spares and accessories or parts and pieces – there will be something for everyone.
At the October instalment there will be a spotlight on Japanese marques, with Suzuki, Honda, Kawasaki, Ducati and Yamaha will be a huge aspect of the show. However, there will also be a British element with BSA, Cotton, Sunbeam and Norton featuring heavily too. As well as the machines highlighted on the shows club stands, private entries will also compete for show awards including the most sought after – the ‘Best in Show’.
There will be two guests of honour this year – the first is Steve Webster MBE, a ten-time World Sidecar Champion. Webster’s career began when he was aged 19 back in 1980, he then went on to win the FIM Sidecar Championship ten times! His first title was won in 1987 – this was only his fourth season of competing in world Championship events. Webster’s 25-year long career ended in 2005, when he announced his retirement. He will be at the event on both Saturday and Sunday.
The second guest of honour is Allen Millyard. Well known for creating eclectic bikes, with eight of his creations due to be present at the event. Millyard has built in total more than 30 ‘multi-cylinder machines ranging from four and five-pot, two-stroke Kawasaki machines, to a V12 based on a Z1300’. He has also won many accolades for his service to engineering and will be bringing along a Velocette V-twin, Honda SS100 V Twin, Kawasaki S1A 350 four and finally, the Flying Millyard.
