You'd better commit. You have a book to deliver. And I want to see the newer, longer, fluffier Iconobeard in person :P

Not long to go now!

Layout will be similar to last year's show, but with the info marquee [where you can pick up a voting slip for the best in show comp] in the centre and the guys from Lemming Brewery set up next to it ready to fuel visitors through the day with their range of locally brewed ales... :)

This central area will be also have a space for anyone wanting to jumble unwanted vintage bike bits. The jumble area will be a little restrained in size this year to test the water - if it goes well and there's interest it can be extended for next year. So if you want to bring along bits to trade, please think along the lines of a blanket on the floor rather than rows of immaculately laid out tables...!

As I say, if it goes well it can easily be expanded to be a bigger feature at future shows - so if that's something you'd be interested in seeing, bring along your bits and bobs and get involved. Events such as this are pretty organic in how they grow and develop and which elements become regular and which get dropped... :)

Can't wait Tom. I'm off to pick up my new, wagon-type vehicle tomorrow, the purchase of which has been brought forward by a month so that I can better accommodate the bikes (and oneself!) to travel more comfortably to Warwickshireness :)

Bikes don't have to be slavishly accurate or else I might as well stay at home, which would save me a bloody fortune!

The thing with any show of this nature, be it classic cars, motorbikes, prams or whatever... is in my opinion 'diversity'. This is a show just as much about the people and how they see/build/appreciate their bikes. I want to see all aspects of the Retro MTB story, not just period correct trailer queens. And I think I speak for most people on retrobike?!

Bring your bikes and let us all enjoy them with you and I would love to see the Fuquay.

See you and your bikes in two weeks then?
