DAZZLING motorbikes were on display at a show with nearly 90 bikes for the public to see.

The Waterlooville Motor Cycle Club’s event at Horndean Technology College pulled in the crowds yesterday.

One of the organisers and club treasurer, Rob Doney, had four of his bikes on display, including his 1937 Norton 500 single.

He said: ‘We’ve got everything from the 1930s to brand new bikes on display. It’s been very good, we’ve had a very good day.’

The event has been run since 1928 and is put on to raise cash and increase membership.

In turn, the club will put on an event in July to raise cash for Hounds for Heroes, Rosemary Foundation and the Rowans Hospice.

Mr Doney said: ‘We’re looking for youngsters to join us as well.

‘We had free entry for under-16s, a lot of us are on the wrong side of 70 and we need some young blood.’

The oldest bike on display was a 1931 Ivory Calthorpe, and the newest a Royal Enfield, delivered to its owner on Friday.

There were 87 bikes on display at the college through the day yesterday.

Dozens of people attended to see the spectacular show.
