I went to the 'Otley Transport Extravaganza' last Sunday, it was amazing, over 500 vintage and post vintage vehicles. There were supposed to be 3 Bantams but only 2 turned up, a D1 plunger and a 'Frankenstein' plunger made from all sorts of bits and bobs. Plenty of auto/moto jumble stalls as well as the usual bric-a-brac and side shows.

Unfortunately their owners were nowhere to be found, so I didnt get the chance to chat.

I would thoroughly recommend this event, its got be be one of the biggest one day events of its kind in the country.

Needless to say its free admission to exhibitors and only £4 for visitors, kids free.

Hopefully my Bantam will be on the road in time for next years show (I've said this before!)

It was a damn good show for the £4! Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Plenty of decent bikes, cars, cycles and a load of other stuff besides. Nearly had an accident and bought that VW Kharmann Ghia! Sense and the missus prevailed on that one.

 

Cheers Col

BSA Bantam D10 so so near, and moved up the list again. FB Falcon 87 reg number applied for. Ariel Arrow now on the go! MZ125 running, Royal Enfield Classic love it, campervan done to tow some of the above! 1.5 Velo LE in bits!

There are quite a few members locally so hopefully they can bring their Bantams next year, could be an excuse for an unofficial gathering of members. I think next year is the 24th and it gets bigger every year. Pleased you made the effort to come all the way from York. The web site advertising next years event and inviting exhibitors is now live. Looks like entrance is still £4

Hi Alan, Col,

Unfortunatly had a prior commitment that week-end. Put me down for attending an informal 'flock' of Bantams next year though.

I don't think a voyage from York to Otley is beyond my D5's capability - not sure about the rider though!

Best wishes

Andy

Thanks, I will bear that in mind.

At least its relatively flat between York and Otley, its only at Otley itself where the really big hills start.

Ey up, 

Sure I can manage one of the bikes to Otley for next time. Should be a good ride out that. It was a way better show than I expected. Great mix of everything, auto jumble, every kind of transport, terrier racing, bagpipe band and rhythmic dancers (!?). Cracking weather. We're definitely going back again. 

 

Cheers Col

Could have done with better weather today at the York Historic Vehicle rally on the Knavesmire. A couple of Bantams there today....and a strangely familiar Honda 500!

I was there too, but came in my A35 van cos it was chucking it down in Pontefract when I set off, although stayed pretty fair at York.
