Hundreds of classic and customised motorcycles will be on display at the 1000 Bike Show, which takes place at the Germiston Sports Club on Saturday and Sunday 6-7 July. This is the third time that this show organised by the Classic Motorcycle Club, will take place at this venue after having been located at the Germiston High School for many years.

This famous show has grown from humble beginnings as a small display at the Johannesburg Carlton Centre in 1985 to what is now, arguably, the largest, dedicated classic and customer motorcycle expo in Africa.

Chief organiser Rusty Thorns says that besides the hundreds of motorcycles on show there will again be more than 100 trade stalls, with many of them offering food and drinks while popular bands we be providing the entertainment.

Concours d’Elegance competitions for custom motorcycles (Saturday) and the classics (Sunday) will take place, with winners being announced at 14:00 on the Sunday.

Entry fee is R80 per person with under 12’s coming in for free. Gates open at 08:00 and close at 17:00. A draw of entrance tickets will determine the winner of a SYM 200 motorcycle.

Those interested in exhibiting on the show or wanting more information should contact Rusty Thorns on 082-411-1687 or [email protected]
