That is why Classic Bike Shows, along with respected restorer John Wyatt, have created a new prize to reward a restoration by a young person.
The Rising Sun award, to be judged and presented at the 20th Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show this October 19-20, will see a restorer aged under 25 gain recognition for their excellent work.
John says: “I would be delighted to see this award won by a teenager; we certainly need to dispel the myth that young people don’t have a place in classic motorcycling, and encourage more youngsters to restore and ride classic machines.”
