South Leverton Classic Bike Night 23rd May *NEXT MEET 11-09*

Postby Rhencullen » Sat May 19, 2012 8:40 pm

Classic Bike Nights are running again at

The Plough
Town St,
South Leverton,
Retford,
DN22 0BT

01427 880323

The wet weather has meant a no-show so far this year, but the forecast is good for Wednesday 23rd - so I'll be going albeit on my 900R. Always a good selection of British & early Japanese bikes there - and free Hot Dogs in the pub :)

Hopefully see some other members there too.

Well, what a great night...... unfortunately though, the place was rammed, and although I got there reasonably early - I squeezed in to a space at the road end next to the mobile chip van.

And Andy promptly appeared and coincidentally parked behind me !

This last one might interest you - looks to me to be a Kettle / RE5 hybrid

I was thinking about popping over to that last night; but the usual brown stuff and fan interface happened - Looking at the photo's I really wish I had !
For future ref - what time do folks normally start to turn up ??

Cheers Tim
PS I am just going for a ride out to Willingham Woods - see if I can spot Wardy's mate

They happen on the second & fourth Wednesdays of Summer months Tim. Folk start turning up from 5.30 and generally begin to leave around 8.00 depending on the light.

Hi Guys, got an e-mail yesterday from a new kettle owner in Scunthorpe who saw my regular advert at the back of the kettle clubs "flexi flier".
Anyone who receives the "flexi flier" may have seen my advert on the area meetings page for North Lincolnshire/South Yorkshire. It gives all my contact details and despite the ad being shown for well over a year now, this is the first time that anybody has contacted me.
The guys name is Rick and he got in touch after buying and restoring his very nice "K" model and then wondering where all the other kettle owners were hiding in North Lincolnshire.
I've had the same problem over the last 27 years since I bought FAB, very rarely meeting up with other kettle owners and when I saw the request in the "flier" for area organisers, I thought it was a very good reason to place the ad.
I think one of the main reasons for this is that there just aren't many kettles in Lincolnshire, especially around Grimsby and Scunthorpe, I don't know any other kettle owners in Grimsby.
So we had a good chat on the phone and we've decided to meet up at South Leverton tonight (26th June) weather permitting. I've also sent PM's to a couple of other forum members who might like to meet there and if anybody else wants to come along, the more the merrier.
Lets see if we can beat the best gathering of kettles that I've seen in Lincolnshire, (Lincoln bikefest, 8 kettles) a few weeks ago.
The meeting at South Leverton is held at "The Plough" pub near Retford, post code DN22 0BT. Its held every second and fourth Wednesdays throughout the summer (what summer?) and the details can be googled.
See you all there, Steve Wharton.

Pleased that you had a good night guys - it is a great meet for classics isn't it.

Unfortunately Andy, I've got 'issues' with my forthcoming tribunal and other things - which meant I couldn't go.
