The bikes range from 494cc to 998cc, from a period between 1928 and 1954, with machines from Triumph, Norton, BMW, Triton, Vincent, Matchless, Velocette, Woden, Rudge, Triumph, Gilera and Royal Enfield. Quite the grid, then, and with two riders to each machine for this 25-minute, two-wheeled extravaganza, the racing was close and fierce.
