STUARTS Point Men's Shed invites everyone (not just riders) to a motorcycle show and lunch at the Workers Club on September 8, for the annual Men's Shed Fundraiser.
Organisers expect a virtual rolling museum of old and new motorcycles to educate and amaze.
Some of the machines on show are around 100 years old and in original or restored condition.
Some of the finest motobikes in the region are anticipated.
The day's program will include barbecue lunches, raffles, live musical entertainment and two major Bike Show prizes.
Prizes will be awarded to winners of two divisions:
Most Popular Old Motorcycle - being any roadworthy motorcycle or scooter 30 years or older
Most Popular Modern Motorcycle - being any roadworthy motorcycle or scooter not yet 30 years old.
Machines may be trailered to the event but must be 'road legal' with public or historic number plates. There will be plenty of room for trailer parking.
Judging and voting in each category will be done by the public, with each vote being a gold coin placed into a ballot box officially attached to nominated motorcycles.
Entrants are encouraged to juggle, sing, tap-dance or tell jokes to win votes for their machines. There's no limit to how much enticement and encouragement used to gain votes.
The nomination fees are $4 per machine, and all monies raised by voting will go directly to support the Stuarts Point Men's Shed and their workshop.
Competition nominations will open at 9am, with voting to start at noon and run until 1pm. The prize winners will be announced at around 2pm.
