Shows and sales

Great fun catching up with people at last weekend's Bristol classic bike show and to think of the year ahead rather than the gloom of winter. Best stand for me was the Morini riders' club: they had three Tresettes, a cut away 250 single (I think...) and Hugo Wilson's Camel that should have been covered in mud from the Exeter Trial but instead looked very shiny and not quite complete. Glad I'm not the only one missing deadlines

The results of Bonham's auction were about right; most stuff selling at or above estimate; the tidlers were making strong money especially and only one lot went unsold.
But my biggest smile was reserved for the club stand pictured; it was called "she's gone away for the weekend." Me too - will be at the Race Retro show this Friday, Saturday and Sunday in Hall 3 by the interview stage. On display will be a Mondial Piega and NCR900 Replica courtesy of Made in Italy Motorcycles and Neil of MiIMC (who built the NCR) will be around Sunday to answer any questions or bamboozle you into buying one of them
