Stafford Classic Bike Show 2012

The Shenstone Branch had a stand at the 19th Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle and Mechanics Show at Stafford on the 20th & 21st October. This was the fifth year the branch has organised the stand and as in previous years we were able  to exhibit a selection of Nortons which were all different models.

We had Sandy Johnson’s ‘Fireflake Roman Purple’ 750 Commando, Brian Glover’s M30 Manx,
Barry Owen’s Navigator, Darren Coggins’s new 961 Cafe Racer, Bunny Kyd’s ‘Dommie 88’ and
Ray Wildman’s ES2.

After the weather we have had this year, luck gave a hand, and the weather was dry and mild which
certainly helped to bring in a large number of people and kept the stand busy. We were very pleased
to  be able to meet NOC members from France and New Zealand who came to visit the stand.
The highlight of the show, for the branch, was when on the Sunday morning a show official visited the
stand to award a rossette ( highly commended ) for our branch chairman and the NOC’s vice chairman Barry Owen’s Navigator.

Barry has only just acquired the bike and was adamant he had not even had time to clean it before the show!.
Thank you to all the branch members and others who came along and helped man the stand and for
promoting the club. I am sure we have gained some new members thanks to your efforts.
