Motorcycle Galore! … at 2019 Shrewsbury Steam Rally
The County of Salop Steam Engine Society’s 2019 Rally, takes place at Onslow Park, Shrewsbury on the August Bank Holiday, - Sunday 25th August and Monday 26th August - and a major attraction at each year’s event are the many motorcycles that will be on show in the Main Arena, and in their static exhibition area.
Mark Bishop, Section Secretary for the motorcycles said: “As part of the 1000 exhibits at this year’s Rally we have some new and exciting motorcycles. Motorcycles are a really popular part of the rally and this year we have marques ranging from a 1914 New Hudson, a 1923 McKenzie and a 1925 BSA ‘round tank’, to a 1963 Triumph 3TA. a 1925 Federation and a 1956 T.W.N Cornet. We also have some great little kids bikes like a 1972 Honda ST 70, a 1970 Yamaha TY80 and a Italjet 50cc. My father Ian, is exhibiting his 1948 BSA M33 500cc which he completely restore. It was the last year of the girder fork front suspension type, and the bike was originally made to carry a sidecar”.
