Watch this space
for reports on all the things we did in 2024
Tuesday 13th February
The Thursday cleaning crew were out in force today, for a major move. 60+ Bikes were taken from the Museum display and loaded onto curtain sided waggons for transport to The London Motorcycle Show at Excel in the Royal Victoria Docks. All in all a successful venture with all bikes moved to the Premier Suite in a little over two hours.
Tricky bit is coming up on Tuesday 20th February when we have to try and put each bike back in its correct place.
Wednesday 21st February Club Night.
Central Wheels were on hand for February’s club night to give us all an insight into wheel building. Everything from spoke selections and measuring to choosing the right rims.
Of particular interest, we were treated to a demonstration from first principals, with the build and trueing of a Velocette wheel.
Wednesday 17th January Club Night Auction.
We never cease to be amazed by the generosity of our members
Shame there were no Stradivarius Paintings or Picasso Violins, but there was some good stuff (and tatt), most of which sold and raised a significant sum to club funds.
Purchasers, you know who you are, hope you managed to sneak it into the house past the wife
Special thanks to all who stayed afterwards to put away the tables and clear the leftovers.
11th January The first Mystery Elevenses Run of 2024.
A dry but chilly day saw 3 hardy souls, Bob, Nigel & Steve meeting up at the Shustoke Sailing Club entrance on the Coleshill Road. Setting off into the unknown we picked up John, our 4th hardy soul, en-route.
Just the first stage of the potential 2-stage run was used today as the draw of a warm cafe and hot food was too hard to resist!
Bob has promised full sunshine for the next one!!
