The Bank Holiday Monday (27th August) will see the Golden Era Vintage Motorcycle Run return to the Yorkshire Air Museum for the fourth year. This sees a gathering of some 65-70 pre 1931 motorcycles, so all over 80 years old and a good number over 100 years old. In fact, the oldest entry this year is a very rare 1902 Chater-Lea – an incredible 110 years old and the earliest example we have seen. This is one of only a few events in the whole of the UK that features a run out in the surrounding countryside of these historic motorcycles.
The entries gather in the morning and then depart for the run, returning later for public display, giving our visitors the chance to admire these splendid machines.
The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight are supporting the event with a flypast by a Spitfire fighter, to thrill the crowds. With all the fascinating exhibits and collection of over 60 historic aircraft and vehicles to be found at the Yorkshire Air Museum, this makes a great day out for the family to enjoy!
