Jack’s on the A30 in Bagshot is blessed with a large car park, unusually so for a chippy. It’s ideal to host a weekly gathering of motor bikes old and new. We drove past last Wednesday, the final day of lovely sunny weather, before the current rains.
I said to my dear wife that I wanted to take a closer look at the bikes, and also, why not stop for lunch. Brief appointment in Camberley duly completed, we returned and found a parking spot. I met some one I know who owns a collection of bikes, of the go-faster variety. Me, I’m equally fascinated by older bikes, possibly because they’re the ones I recognised when way back I followed motor bike road racing.
Possibly because it was a fine day, there were a large number of bikes, and Jack’s fish and chip restaurant was busy. There was a particularly fine example of a 1954 Francis Barnett, to whose owner we happily chatted after our plaice and chips lunch. Here are a few photos of some older bikes and a short video of the bike meet.
