    Old Timers Rally

    Does anyone know if this rally is restricted to pre-65 bikes, or can you go on a later shovelhead?

    Cheers,

    Rod.

    Have sent the question to a member who is a regular there (Ken Lee, ex GB secretary) - if you are allowed your'll see some wonderful machinery. (Scriv might also know?)

    Scriv does know; Topper would be able to offer a more recent view.

    Last time I went (2013) the ruling was that you couild turn up on what you liked, but post-65 bikes had to park by the gate and they weren't alllowed to go on the ride-out. This was enforced to the degree of disbarring a mint 1966 shovel.

    I'm given to understand that the rally hit a bit of a lean patch a few years later, and that they're a bit more flexible now; but I would suggest that whilst you'd be warmly welcomed (they're a great crowd) I've also heard from many sources that the event has lost a lot of its character since they lost the Don Bosco site.
    Much less involved.....

    Ken replied (doesn't come on here), he repeated what Kev said BUT he seems to think that the post-65 "concession" only applies if you are in company with a qualifying machine..? (he encourages you to e-mail them beforehand anyway)

    Re: Old Timers Rally

    Thanks, that’s very helpful. I reckon it will be ok and if I go I’ll get my Dutch mate to check them out. Lot of options that weekend, so I’m still undecided.
