I stopped going years ago as it was shite.
Overpriced cheap garbage for sale by the van load from people travelling from down south.
Expensive to get in for what it is and parking should be free.
There was never really any good deals to be had as most of the good stock was kept for shows down south and the money you might have saved was offset by the cost to travel there and get in.
When they stopped doing the stunt show it was not worth going.

Oh, and I had an A reg MBX50 when I was 16. Bought for 60 and stuck a nickel Micron pipe on it along with a GPZ bikini fairing.

Are we talking about the same show?
This is at the Royal Highland Centre, Ingliston, arranged by Carole Nash and MCN.
One hall full of new bike dealers, Triumph Honda Kawasaki etc, and the other hall full of Classic bikes. No one selling second hand bikes, just a few auto jumbles and tool stalls.

Like I said I stopped going years ago.
They need to up their game and make it more like the NEC show to make it worth going.

Lovely to see those little 50's. I learned to ride on a red MT50 when I was around 14. My mate had a black MB50 when we were 16 so this pic is very appealing to me. cool
