Hi guys ! We are having a Stall and bike display along Madera Drive (seafront) - pop on down and see us ! This is a massive Bike meeting stretching several miles along the Victorian seafront - with Cafe racers and customs and our Flattrackers on display . Several Bands will be on stage throughout the day and plenty of stalls to look at from traders and bike clubs .

This was originally a Rockers only run from Chelsea bridge to the seaside organised by Len Patterson , and i have great memories of these runs in the 80's on my Connie and a Slippery Sam T150 ! The police used to block off all the junctions as we headed en-mass to Brighton non-stop , one big pack of Rockers - Kin ace ! Don't s'pose the Police would do that now (fat chance) and the run from the Ace is a very crap route across the smoke which would burn out a Goldie clutch in about 10 mins !
Anybody remember the Rockers Reunion dances at Battersea town hall ? Great rockin affairs over two stories with great atmosphere and hot bands - much better than the diluted gigs held in the (very large) sports hall nowadays in Reading .The Batersea gigs ended when some long hairs stabbed one of their own outside and Batersea council ended the fun !

Still none of that shit going on this weekend - just bike appreciation and burn ups Rocker style - Hell they even let scooters in nowadays !
Hope to see you there .
