TOMCC Members win Stafford Show Awards

The 37th International Classic Motorcycle Show was held at Stafford on 22-23rd April. The TOMCC were represented by the Birmingham and Wolves branch who put on a stand with bikes ranging from a 1932 Model Z to a 1983 T140AV Bonneville and Club members picked up TWO awards.

The stand was kept busy over the weekend with queries and requests to join TOMCC. However the highlight of the weekend was when the T120 shown above was voted the best Classic in show. The owner Patrick Edgell received his award from guest of honour Troy Baylis and has owned the bike since 1998. It was restored at that time, with the engine being rebuilt by Fred Swift, and was then in constant use being regularly thrashed until the engine finally cried enough and was rebuilt by Club Chairman Ken Talbot.

The TOMCC also picked up another award when regular winner Graham Bowen won Best Post War with yet another T120.
