HUNDREDS of bikers revved their way to Long Melford for an annual motorcycle show at the weekend.

About 130 motorbikes – from 1930s vintage to modern-day speed machines – were on display at the Monks Eleigh Collectors Club Classic Motorcycle Show on Sunday.

The event, running for the fourth year and held at the Royal British Legion in Cordell Road, recorded its biggest turnout to date, according to collectors club chairman Paul Goodchild.

“Everything went very well and we must have had between 300 and 400 people come along,” he said.

Proceeds from the show will be donated to the Royal British Legion, a charity which supports past and present British servicepeople and their families.

“We help each other out and we are very grateful to the support the Legion gives us,” said Mr Goodchild.

The next event held by the club will be a 1940s weekend in Long Melford on May 12 and 13.
