Classic bikes were on display, while a mix of traders, dealers and auto jumble plots gave crowds the chance to buy a box of parts and spares.

The two-day event saw a wide-range of makes, models and eras represented in the two main halls.

Skills challenges, rebuild competitions, a custom show, charity auction and firing up start-up sessions all took place throughout.

Brothers Ben and Tom Birchall were the guest stars, talking with compere Steve Plater as well as signing autographs and presenting awards.

The pair are four-time winners of the famous TT race held in the Isle of Man, and are the current sidecar lap record holders.

Used bike dealer Scooter World also had a presence at the show, with triple British champion Stuart Day in attendance.

Some of the rarer bikes on display included a 1934 Scott Flying Squirrel owned by British Historic Racing and a 1950 Velocette Covel built by former race mechanic Hendley Cox.
