Stafford International Motorcycle Show a great success!

Our stand at the 2022 edition of this show proved a great success with visitors who flocked to ask technical questions on mopeds, autocycles and cyclemotors, all of which were displayed as typical NACC machines.

Some photos of the event:

Pride of place went to Derek Langdon’s extraordinary 1923 Atlas cyclemotor.
John Burgess won an award for Best Autocycle (we know, it isn’t an autocycle….) for his superbly-restored 1957 Ducati 55 – basically a Cucciolo engine in a moped frame.

NACC National Rally is on!

The NACC National Rally will take place over the weekend of 1-3 July 2022. We are unable to return to the Wolverhampton Rugby Club this year due to drainage work on the pitches, but we hope to be back there again in 2023! This year’s event will be held at Ted’s Hunger Hill campsite, Hunger Hill Farm, Sheriffhales, Shifnal TF11 8SA. Please book your pitch direct with Ted on 07807 798288 or email info@hungerhillfarm.co.uk. The cost is £20 per night per pitch, with hookups an extra £5. The information in April’s Buzzing is incorrect – the cost isn’t £20 per head per night. Apologies for mis-informing members!

A change of title at Footman James

Footman James have advised us that as of 22nd March 2022 their legal entity name has changed from Towergate Underwriting Group Ltd. (TUGL) to Advisory Insurance Brokers Ltd. (AIBL). This is purely a name-change and will in no way affect your insurance cover.

NACC stand at the Bristol Classic Bike Show a huge success!

The NACC stand at the Bristol Classic Bike Show proved hugely popular with visitors, we had no less than 22 bike of all kinds – cyclemotors, autocycles, mopeds and some very fine Italian exotica on display. Three awards were won; Best Cyclemotor/Autocycle for John Burgess’s 1964 Ducati Piuma (yes, we know it isn’t a cyclemotor or autocycle, but that’s what was awarded!), Joe and Jenny Skinner took second place in the Continental machines, awarded for their very fine 1959 Gilera Giubileo 98, and Nick Devonport won Highly Commended for his Poirier Manulette Mobylette-powered 3-wheeled invalid carriage. The stand was crowded both days, with enthusiasts asking questions about their favourite make of cyclemotor/moped. We did our best to provide adequate replies!

Many admirers of our bikes!

Stramproy 2022 is on!

We’ve just heard from the Rijwiel Hulpmotor Club, the organisers of the Stramproy cyclemotor-only weekend, that it is definitely going ahead on the weekend of 10-11th September 2022. This event is a must for diehard cyclemotorists, many machines unknown in the UK are present in the Netherlands, there are two runs, one each on Saturday and Sunday, along cycleways and minor roads, the majority of which are flat and therefore ideal for low-powered cyclemotors. The Saturday run is definitely cyclemotors only, even a VeloSolex is frowned on! The Sunday run is more relaxed and period 1950s mopeds are allowed. The heading photo on this site is of the 2019 Stramproy event.
