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
