The International Classic MotorCycle Show reported record sales at its recent edition, over the weekend of the 23rd to 24th of April. Enthusiasts once again crowded into the county showground.

Midlife Classics’ Tim Slaughter said: “Saturday was our best day at Stafford for years. We always have a weekend target in mind, and we’d achieved that by the end of the first day.”

Similar successes were reported throughout the halls and outside trade areas as busy stallholders met huge demand for bikes, parts, spares, accessories, riding gear, memorabilia and more. Hagon Shocks’ Tony Hutchinson said: “We had loads of orders on Saturday, more in that one day than we’ll get in a whole weekend at some other events. The great thing about Stafford is that show-goers are getting their hands dirty restoring and maintaining machines – they’re here to buy, not just to browse.”

The May issue of Motorcycle Trader will carry further information.
