More than 1,000 enthusiasts enjoyed a classic motorcycle show outside Swansea Museum last weekend.
The event, held last Sunday outside the museum’s Tramshed building, had many different bikes on display.
Picking up the coveted ‘Best in Show’ prize was Alan Richards with his Ariel Red Hunter, a single-cylinder motorcycle with distinctive dark red petrol and oil tanks that was popular with grass track and trials riders.
Paul Giuffrida, from Swansea Museum, who attended the event said:
“The weekend’s classic motorbike show really proved to be popular, attracting thousands of people who enjoyed the display.
“It was nice to see so many people feeling nostalgic and remembering times when more of the bikes, now considered classics, graced the city’s roads.”
Among the attractions on the day was Swansea’s own competitive motorcyclist, Gordon Daniels, who shared his memories of winning the Manx GP in 1969; and Phil Landeg who won the best competition bike category with his Triumph Trident, the last major motorcycle developed by Triumph Engineering at Meriden, West Midlands.
Events like the motorcycle show and the many others we’ve got lined up this summer give people even more reasons to visit and enjoy Swansea Bay, helping to maintain the vitality of the area.
