Bike Life Classics success at Sammy Miller Museum

With great weather, a great crowd and some great bikes, the Bike Life Classics Day at the Sammy Miller Museum on Sunday, June 24, surpassed all expectations, with almost 1400 bikes in attendance – the most ever.

Renowned bike builders Don and Derek Rickman were presented with Bike Life Classics Lifetime Achievement Awards, and indeed a Rickman Kawasaki 900 took the best in show award, with other trophies being presented to the owners of a Vincent Grey Flash, Kawasaki Z1, Norton CS1 and Triumph Tiger 90.
