Classic Bike Guide big breakfast

Jim Moodie will share the guest of honour duties with former Armstrong hero Donnie McLeod, at the new Carole Nash Great Scottish Bike Show, at Lanark Agricultural Centre, Muriglen, Hyndford Road, Lanark ML11 9AX, over the weekend of May 12-13.

Already there are many trade and club stands booked in, plus a goodly number of private display machines including Lenny Hartley’s awesome Métisse Trident, Steve Gray’s lovely T160 and Derek Crossley’s mixed double act of 1959 B31 and 1977 KH250 Kawasaki, plus of course the ever popular autojumble, which boasts both inside and outside stalls.


Opening times are Saturday 9am – 6pm, Sunday 9am – 5pm. More information and application forms or email to, telephone 01507 529431.

Make a note in your diary for September 23, as it’s the Classic Bike Guide Big Breakfast, at Markham Moor Truckstop, off the A1-A57 roundabout, about five miles south of Retford, Notts. Last year’s event saw more than 500 machines turn out to try the mobile dyno, have a look at the new Royal Enfields, listen to rock ‘n’ roll trio Slickshift ’56 and, most importantly, enjoy a cracking breakfast!

Full details on this year’s event coming soon.
