The February issue of Classic Bike magazine is out on Wednesday!
Welcome to the new issue of Classic Bike:
I’d been told Classic Bike of the Year was going to be a bit special but, as the new editor, I was still blown away by the quality of entries for this year’s competition. We had way too many hours of enjoyment, sifting through the applicants,discussing the merits of each –and had a tough job narrowing it down to the final ten. But a real pleasure all the same. We’re confident that any one of the finalists could be a worthy winner, but now it’s your turn to enjoy examining the images of each bike and studying the amazing build stories to decide who will receive the 1000 guinea winner’s prize. You can vote online classicbike.co.uk), but why not come along to the MCN London Motorcycle Show at Excel, London on February 13-15 where you can see all ten bikes in the metal –and fill in your voting slip. There’s an added bonus for voters this year – you’ll be entered in a free prize draw to win a Sealey bike lift worth over £500! See page 28 for more details. I don’t know about you, but I find huge inspiration in restoration stories. I hope the Classic Bike of the Year competition has a similar positive effect on you. Maybe your restoration will be ready for next year’s competition?
