We had a CNOC meeting last night and it looks like we will have an exceptional show this year. I know there are several bikes owned by CLSB folks that fit the criteria so BRING THEM OUT! I know there are several ...a couple of CB 350's and one or two GS Suziukis (4cammer...ENTER THE SHOW!) an RD350 and a couple of old Harley's at least...I plan to have my 2 '67 Triumphs there and possibly my BSA B50 MX bike. I plan to set up a courtesy canopy with a cooler full of cold water for the Ton Up club and anyone from CLSB is welcome to stop by and say hello, hide from the sun and have a cold water.
Hope to see you on Sunday!

Anything made in the model year 1986 or earlier is welcome. From there it's according to manufacturer or country of origin and there is a competition category for any and all race bikes, pavement or dirt.

I was there, did not stay too long as I had family stuff to attend. Decent show, a little down from previous years I have gone, but some interesting bikes were there. One fella had a cafe T500 that reignited my desire for a smoker.

My bike will be in the show next year for sure.

^^^ If you were on the GS Suzuki I saw your bike and wondered if it was yours. I would have liked to have met you. Too bad we missed this opportunity. I'm easy to find just ask for the AMA guy.
The Suzuki Cafe' took first in his class and we're very glad he did. A few of us stopped at Strat's Bikini bike wash a few weeks earlier because or friend had a display from his seat business there and the Suzuki was there. We were so impressed with his bike we sought him out and invited him to the Norton club show. He has since shown up with it at a Ton Up Club gathering too. It's a very cool bike and he says that he has 2 other bikes but he rides the 2 smoker the most!
I had my 2 '67 Triumph's in the show. The Bonnie took a 2nd place trophy in the unrestored class and the Tiger was outclassed by all the great bikes in the "Other British" category.
