Engineering genius Allen Millyard will be guest of honour at the Bristol Classic Motorcycle Show over the weekend of February 26-27, 2022. Allen is renowned for creating mind-boggling bikes, having built more than 30 multi-cylinder machines ranging from four and five-pot, two-stroke Kawasaki machines to a V12 based on a Z1300.

The hugely anticipated event will see classic motorcycle enthusiasts flock to the Royal Bath and West Showground. From humble beginnings in 1980, the show has grown and evolved into Britain’s greatest annual celebration of all that’s best about the motorcycles of yesteryear.

Berkshire man Allen will showcase some fascinating creations at the show including his Kawasaki Z1 Super Six, Honda RC374 six, Velocette V Twin and Honda SS100 V Twin. Fans will have the chance to meet him at the show, ask questions about his one-off bikes and listen to them roar as they are fired up over the weekend.

As always, motorcycle clubs are at the heart of the Bristol show. Classic Bike Shows’ annual trip to the South West is well known for the extravagant exhibitions put on by the local motorcycle clubs that go all out to impress.

Of course, autojumble plays an important role in any good classic show and although the event takes place in the West Country it attracts jumblers and trade stands from all corners of the UK and even continental Europe.

This event offers one of the earliest chances of the year for visitors to stock up on classic parts, spares, accessories and riding gear for the season ahead. It’s a very popular date on the motorcycling event calendar, attended by more than 16,000 enthusiasts every year. If you’re looking for a specific part to complete your latest restoration, chances are you’ll find it on one of the trade or autojumble stands at Bristol Bike Show.

Discounted advance tickets are now on sale for the show, with a one-day adult pass costing just £12. Tickets will also be available on the gate at £14 – and under 15s get free admission. Free parking is available on site.
