Date and place of appointment: 7 & 8 February in the Oktoberhallen of Wieze, both days from 09am to 30pm.
The British café racer pioneers picked up in the post-war era England the best of the scarce parts together to make it its own unique engine. The example that still appeals most to the imagination is the legendary Triton, the engine of the Triumph Bonneville with the featherbed frame of the Norton, which in terms of performance and looks far exceeded the official models.
Other crossings were Tribsas, Norvins, Norbsas and you name it what could be put together like that. In the wake of this phenomenon, former mechanics or pilots of the established motorcycle brands went one step further by also developing their own frames, just think of the Rickman brothers, Rob North, Colin Seeley, Harris, Egli, Martin, Italjet, etc.
The products of these frame manufacturers and their well-known and less well-known colleagues are on the expo stage of Moto Retro Wieze this time.
It would make you warm ...
