1000 Bike Show reigns in Africa

There were hundreds of classic motorcycles on show in the huge tent at the Germiston High School near Johannesburg.

“This year’s event raised more money than ever, with a number of charities as well as Germiston High the benefactors,” said the chairman of the Classic Motorcycle Club (CMC) and main organiser of the 1000 Bike Show, Pierre Cronje.


“The standard on display was high and there were a number of interesting and unique machines, including the only British Hesketh in Africa.”

The 1000 Bike Show has a long history, dating back to the first concours d’elegance organised by the CMC in Springs in 1970. Best in show was the 1969 Triumph Bonneville of Neville Nicolou.
