Winner’s trophies from the personal collection of six times Grand Prix world champion Jim Redman will be sold to the highest bidder at the 19th Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show in Stafford.

The event, which takes place at the Staffordshire County Showground on October 20-21, includes a Bonhams auction where the trophies, most of them silver replicas from Jim’s TT triumphs during the early to mid 1960s, and dozens of rare motorcycles will be sold.

Among the show’s other attractions will be star guests including legendary Kiwi racer Graeme Crosby and trials rider Yrjo Vesterinen, live action displays, exhibitions and much more.

Hundreds of traders will set up shop at the event selling bikes, parts, tools, leathers, maintenance services, insurance, workshop manuals, books, magazines, memorabilia, transfers and even gifts.

Classic Bike Shows organiser Nick Mowbray said, “It’s not every day you get a chance to buy a unique piece of motorcycling history and we’re privileged to be able to offer this opportunity at our show.

Stafford is something special. It’s a celebration – not just of classic motorcycles but of the history that goes along with them too. I am proud to say that this year’s show will embrace classic machines from every era like never before and demonstrate the passion that exists for bikes of all ages.”

“You need only look at the clubs who’ve already booked to exhibit at the show. We had more than 70 at the last count, so you can see a bevy of beautiful 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s machines looking their very best.”

The VJMC will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of its UK wing with a display to mark the occasion and the BSA Bantam Club will also be hosting a display to celebrate its 10th anniversary.

The Different Strokers stand will feature examples of the finest 750cc race-replicas from the late 80s and early 90s and the Air-cooled RD Club will have a large selection of 20 singles, twins and triples on display.

Among the private entry display machines will be everything from single cylinder air-cooled scooters through a pair of Honda six-cylinder CBX1000s and an NS400R two-stroke triple to a rotary-engined Suzuki RE5.

Not only that, the show includes final round of the Classic Bikers Club Bike of the Year Award. This takes the overall winner from shows at Newark, Bristol, Lanark, Netley Marsh and two previous Stafford shows and puts them together in a face off to decide the best of the best. First prize will be £1000 worth of goodies from GP Legends and a unique trophy built using parts from John McGuinness’s works Honda Fireblade motorcycle.

There’s free parking at the show and dogs on leads are welcome.
