Vintage, veteran and classic show, Amberley, Sussex
By: Alan Turner
As well as quarrying, the museum has many other displays relating to a variety of other industries.
A number of clubs supported the occasion, such as the BSA Bantam Club with a selection of the strokers that added to the tally of BSAs, making it the most popular marque present, with nearly a third of the entry. Oldest of the Small Heath entry was a 1930 Sloper outfit.
There were many other interesting bikes, although representatives of the Veteran and Vintage entries were slim this year. However, John Harris's 1914 Douglas, parked near the entrance, drew many admiring looks. Further into the museum was Jon Hurst's early Vincent Comet.
Among the unusual was Terri Carpenter's Moto Guzzi Galletto. This 200cc bike was another design that endeavoured to cross the line between motorcycles and scooters. The recently purchased bike had a number of problems to be sorted out and appearance at Amberley was a close call.
