The Club was formed in 1988 after founder member placed an advert in the local Ayrshire press, asking for all those interested in forming a classic motorcycle club to contact him to arrange a meeting. The club has progressed from the early meetings of 9 or 10, to a membership of around 130 today, coming from as far afield as Argyll, Perthshire, Fife, Cumbria, Lancashire and Yorkshire. Regular attendees at meetings travel from all over Ayrshire, Lanarkshire, Dumfries & Galloway, Renfrewshire and Glasgow.
What We Do
A typical winter programme for the club nights could include a bring & buy, a presentation by a motorcycling personality, an inter-club quiz, and a visit to local places of interest . The opportunity for a good chat with your fellow motorcyclists also features highly. Tea, coffee and sandwiches are regularly provided at these evening meetings.
During the summer months there is a programme of runs and shows, and of course, the club’s own Scottish Classic Motorcycle Show in June. The runs usually comprise, a day trip from Ayr – up into Argyll, over to Arran, across to the Borders, or down into Galloway. We get the mixture of weather that you have to expect in Scotland, but the runs are well attended, and, if you are unsure about the reliability of your machine, there are plenty of willing hands should something go wrong. Each year the club looks at organising something different for the summer outings. Altogether quite a full events programme.
As well as the runs, we take a stand at many of the vintage and classic shows in the south west of Scotland, as well as the Scottish Motorcycle Show at Ingliston in March each year. The highlight of the club year is of course The Scottish Classic Motorcycle Show, held in June at the Ayr Racecourse.
If you own or are interested in motorcycles which are at least fifteen years old then this club gives you the opportunity to meet others with similar machines, to share your passion and take part in organised activities. There is also a monthly newsletter keeping you up to date with snippets of information, run reports, articles by members, and an opportunity to buy and sell bikes and parts.
Membership of the club is open to anyone with an interest in classic motorcycles and costs just £12.00 annually. Membership form
