Guest of honour at the South of England Classic Show & Bike Jumble on Sunday, April 2, will be Dave Degens of Dresda Triton fame.

Triton legend Dave Degens helps out an enthusiast at a previous Ardingly Bike Clinic.

He’ll be starting his rare 1958 Matchless G45 road race machine in the fire-up paddock at 11am and 1.30pm at the South of England Showground at Ardingly, west Sussex.

He’ll also be holding his popular bike clinic in the Queen’s Jubilee Show Hall, and will be on hand to answer questions on bikes of all makes and ages.


With five indoor halls for motorcycle displays, trade and bike jumble stands, there will be plenty to see, and a helmet park in aid of the Royal British Legion will be available in The Stockman’s Building.

A great range of catering facilities will also be available. Gates open at 10am, with last admissions at 1.30pm for 2.30pm finish, and entrance charges will be £6 adults, £5 senior citizens aged 65 and over and children under 16 admitted free. Well-behaved dogs on leads will be welcome.
