(NOC) Cafe Racer Day Saturday September 16th 2017 – report
A few images taken at the annual Cafe Racer Day organised by the Oxford Branch of the NOC and this year held at The Red Lion in Cassington.
Stan Dibben and Ken Sprayson (The Frame Man) kindly judged and presented the prizes for Best Cafe Racer (Featherbed framed Triumph Trident engine) and Furthest Travelled Cafe Racer (Norton Atlas – Southampton).
The “winning” bike was a true masterpiece incorporating an abundance of specially designed and self made components.
Bikers turned up from many parts of the UK either to enter their bike or simply to attend. This is the 5th year the event has been held and will almost certainly take place next year at the same location.
Many thanks to Janice Bowerman-Faulkner of The Red Lion for hosting the event, members of the Cassington Sports and Social Club for manning the bbq and dispensing coffee and tea and to Stan Dibben and Ken Sprayson for gracing us with their presence, judging and presenting the prizes.
The number of attendees was down on previous years, no doubt due to the weather forecast but the 60 or so present all enjoyed the day.
4 VOC members turned up and thoroughly enjoyed the event.
Mark the event in your diary for September 2018.
