Went to Masham on Saturday to see what motorcycles turned out. It was worth the trip. As usual, on the Saturday afternoon, quite a few of the vehicles and bikes arrive in the town centre.

a 1936 Rudge

a Norman 98cc

a 1954 AJS

More bikes, dogs, people and steam machines going up here link

Love the bikes , when i was a kid my dad had a shed in the backyard full of old bike stuff inc a rudge ulster , don`t know what happened to them but they would be worth a fortune today.

Some lovely old bikes there. It is a good job there are enthusiasts around, or these would be lost forever

That Rudge Ulster would find a way into my fantasy motorcycle garage without any problem.

Thanks heavens for fanatical guys and some women, who love old machines. Without them there would be no restored vintage cars, buses, aircraft or steam locomotives - all in fine working order.

Lovely set. That Rudge ulster is a beauty. I was lucky enough to see one recently and was talking to the owner and I thought he said it was a 1936 ulster with a left hand gearchange. He said he couldn't get used to it as most of the classics he has are righthand. I thought 'great a classic for me' (being brought up on lefthand gears). Now I see that your photo is a righthand gearchange and reading around it seems they changed to righthand around the time of these. Damn, looks like I need to go back to the drawing board and do some more research! Still gives me time to save up some pennies....

All comments appreciated.

Having covered as many bike shows as I could in WA, Don, I'm working my way round the UK.
