Mean machines take to street for show

Have your say

MEAN machines from around the region were on show in Sheffield when The Moor held its annual Motorbikes and Scooters show.

Among the 100 enthusiasts roaring into the city to show off their gleaming wheels was Ray Smith, from Mosborough, with his purple and chrome Rawaco trike.

Exhibitors had the chance to win prizes for a number of ‘best in show’ categories.

Sandra Barley, of Moor Sheffield, said: “The quality of the bikes on display was really good this year, with some very nice individual bikes, trikes and scooters.

“In all, we had around 100 vehicles brought to the show, which went really well although the rain meant there were not large numbers of people coming along to have a look.

“There were awards categories including best scooter, classic, foreign, custom bike and best pre-war.

“The pre-war award went to Robert Copstake, of Chesterfield, who had brought along a 1931 AJS bike.

“Alan Stevens, of Worksop, won best scooter with his 1959 Lambretta.”

The show also included a display from members of speedway bike racing teams.

The police, AA and training organisations were also on hand to offer advice to bikers.

As well as the display of vehicles and information, entertainment was provided visitors and competitors to enjoy, including music from radio station Magic AM.
