Rare Henry Body Trio To Light Up Annual 'Bristol' Bike Show

Henry Body’s Douglas Sprinter

There’ll be, as ever, packed halls of club stands and jumble, with the whole spectrum of motorcycling represented. And those little ‘gems’ that don’t appear anywhere else are often courtesy of Henry Body. 

The indefatigable octogenarian, who recently featured on BBC’s The One Show, is this year bringing the Douglas sprinter with which he’s synonymous, plus a veteran Williamson, the fabulous and fascinating fore-and-aft 1000cc watercooled flat-twin. It’s a rare chance to study one.


And, after a successful debut in 2015, Charterhouse will host a second motorcycle auction at the event with lots including a collection of barn-find bikes perfect for restorers looking for their next project. 

Gates open at 10am each day. Advance tickets can be bought online through classicbikeshows.com or by calling 01507 529529.
