Stafford Classic Motorcycle Show 2015
« on: October 15, 2015, 04:37:07 AM »
My GTR is ready for it's first showing at Stafford this weekend, this is the premiere classic bike show in the U.K. and will be attended by possibly 30,000 enthusiasts, wish me luck.



If anyone attending on Saturday would want to chat about GTRs then I'll be by it's side at 1.00pm on the VJMC stand, main hall M57.

Don't be shy.

Stunning restoration Ziggy. You must have spent heaps. I'm sure you will do well.  I would love to attend Stafford and/or Goodwood.  I am off to IOM TT next June. Looking forward to it.
Keep up the good work.

What am I talking about Lee...completely forgot that I'll be there tomorrow! See you then...much easier to have a chat on set up day. Assume you are staying in the same B+B?

One of the nicest 350 GTR's I've seen.

You've done a great job!

Good luck at the event.

Thanks Steve, I'm so proud to have won 'Best Japanese' at Stafford with the GTR, this is a highly recognized achievement that many restorers only dream about, I'm also pleased that the brand will now be more familiar to the classic bike enthusiasts in the U.K.

    Hi Lee,    Congratulations on the award, you look justifiably proud, beautiful job on the GTR, she does stand out on the photos .
 
                For forum members, at 1.0pm on the Saturday, we had 5 UK Bridgestone owners around Lee's bike. Lee, Steve, Colin, myself and a new chap from Yorkshire, Alan,  who has just acquired a part restored GTR in boxes, an original 60's import. Probably the greatest 'dry clutch' (or whatever the collective noun might be :D) of UK, BS owners for many a year. Also met Graham (discvalve) at the show. A thoroughly enjoyable weekend and an opportunity to meet (some for the first time), share experiences and discuss our restorations. 
           Brian.
