2013 Bathurst Bike Show

Saturday February 2

A large number of colourful and popular motorcycles  arrived in town this year for the Bathurst Street and Custom Motorcycle Show held for the third time outside the Bathurst Civic  Centre.

Families Welcomed 

Families were welcome and there was plenty to amuse everyone including lots of motorcycles for the adults to look at and fun for the kids. Entry was free for the general public and those displaying their motorcycles. The only entry charge is for those wishing to enter the formal competition, where the charge was $10.

Fun For Everyone                

Amongst the throng was  displays organised by local motorcyclists such as the Bathurst’s Beard Brothers Motorcycles, Mick Muldoon Motorcycles, Capital Motorcycles as well as Shannons Insurance, Temporary Australians and Brotherhood Christian Motorcycle Club.

There was to be a free jumping castle for the kids but wind stopped that sadly.  As well as lots of information about various motorcycle organisations and event t-shirts for sale.

Mayor Monica Morse was particularly impressed by the people’s friendliness and the V8 Chopper.

Lots of music

One of the highlights of this year’s Bathurst Street and Custom Motorcycle Show was the appearance of rock band Subtlebric. Formed in 2003 this band plays some popular rock and roll covers as well as some of their own impressive work.
