As you may have already noticed, this issue of OBM brings with it a pack of raffle tickets for the National Motorcycle Museum’s first raffle of 2019, in which entrants gain the chance to win not only a luxury hotel break and dinner for two at the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse at the Manor Hotel, Meriden, but also an electro-hydraulic Sealey bike lift and, as the top prize, a 1977 Norton Commando that is new/old stock and, as such, has never been run or registered!
Aside from the very few ‘push’ miles that the bike has recorded, it is effectively a brand new ’77 Interstate model, with the later 850cc parallel twin engine.
As you can see from the tickets, each is £2, and they’re being distributed through subscriptions of the specialist press, so aren’t available to the general public except directly from the museum (on 01675 444123 or on-line @ www.thenmm.co.uk).
The draw will take place on Sunday, April 28 2019 at the International Classic Motorcycle Show, Stafford.
Meanwhile, the National Motorcycle Museum’s summer 2018 raffle was drawn by TT and road racing superstars John McGuinness, Mick Grant and Trevor Nation at the Museum’s LIVE open day in October.
The winner of the 1969 Royal Enfield Interceptor Mk II 750cc was a lucky Craig Winter, while the James ML125 went to David Fallon, and a hotel break and dinner at the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse went to Mr J Wilson.
