Motorcycle Live 2015 – which takes places at The NEC, Birmingham from 28 November to 6 December – may be all about the new metal for many bike fans, but it’s also a chance to see some of the UK’s most impressive custom and classic machinery.
The Classic Feature gets a revamp this year thanks to support from The National Motorcycle Museum, which is situated right next door to The NEC and houses over 1,000 machines from 171 British manufacturers spanning three centuries. A selection of this incredible inventory will be on display at Motorcycle Live, including the earliest pioneer machines dating from the late 1800s through to unique prototypes and iconic race machines from more recent times. There will also be a live restoration feature.
The Custom Feature supported by Back Street Heroes and Streetfighters will make a very welcome return with its collection of weird and wonderful machinery from the UK’s most talented custom bike builders. This year’s display will include gems such as a stunning 30-year-old BSA B33, a ‘GSX Turbo’ built using parts from a Suzuki GSX 750, a Suzuki Bandit and a Yamaha R1, and a ‘Re-born to be wild’-themed Spondon Hayabusa.
Motorcycle Live 2015 will run from 28 November to 6 December. Advance tickets are on sale now, at just £17.50 per adult, £11 for Seniors and £7 for children aged 11-16* (kids aged 10 and under accompanied by a paying adult go free). There is also a £20.50 advance ticket, which includes entry to the show and a choice of Oxford neck wear worth £15. To book, call 0844 581 2345 or visit www.motorcyclelive.co.uk.
