I went out for a bit of wonder on my trusty 600 Thundercat about a month ago and went to a Steam Rally at a place called Stoke Prior on the outskirts of Bromsgrove. Met upwith Andy and his long suffering wife there. She gets dragged to all sorts of car/bike/plane museums and shows. Good to see them both even if they did come in their car today
I love these gatherings, the acrid smell of burning coal and steam, the traction engines hissing and blowing as they build up pressure. They almost seem alive!
Like so many of these events this one also had large displays of classic cars, commercials, military vehicles and of course bikes. So here are a few pictures of the classic bikes that had rocked up on the day
Brough Superior no less, the first superbike? The Busa of the 1920’s?
Lovely, clean Norton
The most popular bike in the world!
Read more about the mighty Honda C90 Cub here
or the C50 I abused
The baby brother of the 400/4…the 350 was never officially imported to the UK…there were two here
The Suzzi GT was somehow more of a ‘bad-boy’ than the well mannered Honda
Can’t beat a bit of heavy air-cooled metal…
Check out the old boy, looking on and fondly remembering his misspent youth no doubt
I love 1970’s dirt bikes like this DT175
The poor old Yamaha has a HUGE side car to drag around
It was a Steam Rally, so they should really get a few pictures too
Classic cars there too
Military kit as well
My transport for the day…18 years old now and a bit of a veteran itself!
A grand day out, I will go again
