John Dummett comfortably took the award for the oldest bike at the show with this 1928 BSA 350 Side Valve. In fact it is the oldest to have ever attended the event.

Lyn Watts won Best Foreign with her Yamaha XS650

Despite not winning an award, Spencer Stinchombe's 1990 Harley Davidson was actually the least likely to get home as it required a breakdown truck. Spencer who is a member of the National Chopper Club, was close to getting the further travelled as he came from Knowstone about 35 miles away.
