Popped down to Shepton Mallet today for what is deemed to be the show that starts the Classic Bike Show season, seemed to be a good turnout and even the sun came out to warm us up today.Heres a few pics of stuff that caught my eye
Ok so the SV is not a classic bike, but this one is by far the best looking one i have ever seen !!
Wow! Check out that GB500! A mate of mine had one but it lived outside on Hastings seafront; everything was rusty, and the cases had a sort of white fur growing on them. It always ran OK though, and was killed off by an old gimmer who pulled out in front of my mate and said “I saw you but thought I had time to get out of the way”. Amazingly the guy was allowed to keep his licence, despite nearly putting my mate in a wheelchair permanently.
I had an XBR first bike after I passed my test…happy days!
When I skimmed over these pictures the other day I thought “bloody hell they are scary mannequins” … it’s only now you’ve said that I looked again and see they are in different poses between photographs
