Six passionate classic motorcycle enthusiasts have defeated hundreds of other competitors from all over Britain to reach the final round of the Classic Bikers Club Bike of the Year Award.

The finalists have been chosen by a panel of the nation’s top classic motorcycle experts. Each machine is an engineering marvel and the product of its owner’s mechanical prowess, mingled with lots of love, care and attention to detail.
