-- A 1936 SUNBEAM will be among over 100 motorbikes roaring into Swansea this weekend.
Swansea Council’s Classic Motorcycle Show is taking place at Dylan Thomas Square in the maritime quarter on Sunday (July 22) from 10am to 4pm.
The free event is being organised by Swansea Museum staff with support from Lloyd Davies, a local garage owner and motorcycle land speed record-holder.
Lloyd, a Citroen-Peugeot specialist, took his Hyabusa superbike to 225mph at RAF Elvington.
Other motorbikes being featured at the show include machines from Norton, Royal Enfield and Triumph. The Super Rocket, the Commando, the Constellation and the Bonneville will be among the bikes.
Newer motorbikes from Honda, Yamaha, BMW, Kawasaki, Harley-Davison, Ducati and Suzuki will also feature as well as specialist bikes like the Manx Norton and the Honda Hornet.
