MOTORCYCLES from all over the world converged in the CBD on Saturday for the annual Bathurst Street and Custom Motorcycle Show.
Twelve-months in the planning, the event attracted 250 bikes, including 116 registered for competition.
The event was organised by Sydney based The Brotherhood CMC, assisted by Bathurst’s Bad Hobos social motorbike club. Bad Hobos president, Rose Hancock, said the the day “went off.”
“It was bigger then last year, with 116 bikes registered for competition, it’s the best year we’ve had.”
There were 18 different competition categories including , best bike in show, people’s choice, best cruiser, best sports bike, best classic, best vintage, best Japanese, best American and best European.
Mrs Hancock said organisers were delighted with the day.
“So many people came and enjoyed the day; it was great to see the kids coming up and having a look at the bikes.
“It’s a great family day,” she said.
Mrs Hancock thanked everyone for their support including the community, Bathurst Regional Council and sponsors who made the event possible.
“The event doesn’t make money, its a community event so any profits will be used to bring the show back bigger and better next year,” she said.
In addition to the bikes there were also displays by local businesses including Beard Brothers and Taylor Motorcycle Services, and Shannons Insurance.
