The Carole Nash International Classic MotorCycle Show, taking place at Staffordshire County Showground on April 25-26, will see Pete guide showgoers through a range of topics offering practical and down-to-earth advice with accompanying demonstrations.

Nick Mowbray, exhibition manager at event organiser Classic Bike Shows, said: “We’re all really excited about our new Restoration Theatre and we know we’ve got the right man in Pete Thorne who’ll bring plenty of enthusiasm and passion to proceedings, along with a wealth of technical knowledge.

“Perhaps the best news for showgoers is we’ve been able to incorporate the sessions into the overall ticket price meaning there is no additional charge to attend any of the ten presentations taking place across the weekend.”

Four different topics will be covered: putting cylinders on a twin, dry gear assembly and disassembly, electrical fault finding and the do’s and don’ts of restoration.

Pete will pitch the information so it’s accessible to every level of restorer with the theatre retaining a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. He will also be on hand following each presentation to answer questions.

He said: “The prospect of the Restoration Theatre is one that appealed to me and I’m delighted to have been asked to take part. I’ve been fortunate enough to work in the world of motorcycle repair and restoration for the past 41 years and I look forward to sharing my experiences with crowds at the Stafford show.”
