THE 30th Borders Classic Bike Show sets a new record this year with two veteran bikes over 100 years old entered.

One is a 1902 Birmingham built Clement-Garrard, the other a 1903 Royal Sovereign made in London. And these are not lifeless museum pieces, they have been rebuilt to run.

They join an array of historic machinery including a display of racing Nortons from 1933 to the late 1950s, plus off-road trials bikes ranging from a 1955 BSA ‘Bantam’ to a 2014 Italian GasGas, and machines from Spain and Czechoslovakia as well an array of the Best of British.

They will fill two halls of Lacon Childe School in Cleobury Mortimer, where the Parent Teacher Association’s famous ‘All Day Breakfast’ will feed the hungry visitors.

The show opens at 9am on Saturday and Sunday (September 9 and 10) and a highlight is the Sunday firing-up of racing bikes to see who wins the SWATS (She Would Appreciate That Sound) award in memory of Valerie Reynolds, who took the money on the door for the first 25 shows.

There are 17 awards for owners to compete for, covering bikes of all sorts and makes.

The show will be clearly signposted in the town, admission is £5 and accompanied youngsters get in free of charge. All proceeds from the show go to the school.
