The 2019 Battlesbridge Classic Motorcycle Event


On Sunday 7th july the section hosted a stand at the Battlesbridge event. This was the second year running

that we had done this and as our first appearance last year was considered successful it was decided

to repeat it this year but with hopes for a larger site than we had at the previous event.



Unfortunately since last year a large portion of the site that existed then had since been sold and

the event area was therefore more compact than previously so we couldn’t expand as we

would have liked to. Nevertheless thanks to Dudley Woods sorting out the organization of the pitch

we had sixteen bikes on show, nine of which were riddento the event by :- Roy Bellett, Geoff Gibbins,

Dave Walling, Dave Lewis, Dave Kewell,Peter Berry, Graham Bister, Alan Jennings and (Harlow) Reg  Green



Two awards were presented to section member Pat Gill

“Runner-up for Best In Show” award for his World War 1 Matchless Machine Gun outfit

and a “Highly Commended” award for his 400cc Matchless Silver Arrow solo



Section member Chris Willis, who had his “Willis Wheels” trade stand at the show also had

His RAF liveried AJS on display
