BIKES SHINE

There was strong support from visitors to the Classic Motorcycle Club’s annual 1000 Bike Show, which was held at the Germiston Sports Club on July 6-7. About 7 500 visitors attended this year’s event and weren’t disappointed, with masses of quality motorcycles on display.

Unfortunately, there was no support for the show from the major motorcycle distributors this year – odd considering the amount of support the 34-year-old event garners. Nonetheless, there was plenty to take in and variety impressed – how about the sight of a rare Italian Volugrafo Bimbo minicar, a trike powered by a turbocharged BMW V8 engine and a Moto Guzzi load carrier for some added spice?

Gary van Jaarsveld’s immaculate Kawasaki Z900 was adjudged Best on Show, while the women judges favoured William Viljoen’s 1960 BSA Gold Star.
