Our upcoming Stafford Classic MotorCycle Show in April will mark four decades of this magnificent event. But where did it all begin? Let’s turn back the clock to 1980 and find out how one man gambled everything on the idea of a show dedicated to classic bikes. Forty years later it’s now the world’s biggest of its kind.
It takes a lot of bottle to jack in a well-paid job in advertising to launch a new concept in motorcycle shows. Alan Whitehead did just that to start what became the highly successful International Classic Bike Show.
The idea of a show for classic machines came to Whitehead, a British bike enthusiast, on a train journey back to his Bolton home after a visit to the Earls Court show.
