The show has a 4 page feature in the latest edition of Motorcycle Trader which is published today … great article … buy the mag … dream the show!
Best Bike at the Show and Best Club at the Show will both win $1000 cash prizes this year.
Prizes are kindly donated by Nick and the good guys from Star Insurance.
Best Bike is judged largely on originality so doesn’t have to be concours or the biggest at the show. Anything from a tidy BSA Bantam to a wild Chopper has an equal chance.
Best Club is judged on the range of bikes, information about the club, the quality and interest of the display and anything that makes this display stand out from the rest … use your imagination and be in line for a nice contribution to club funds.
So get your entries in guys and girls … there are entry forms on the website in the “About The Show” page … or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries.
We are delighted to confirm that the winner of the NZ Classic Bike Of The Year will receive a $1000 cash prize courtesy of the good people at Motorcycle Trader.

If your bike is a beauty but doesn’t meet these criteria there are still good prizes for Best Bike At the Show and Peoples Choice … prize details to be announced soon.
So … polish up your favourite toys and get them entered … see details on the About The Show page, or send queries to email@example.com

The Star Insurance Classic and Custom Bike Show is for the community and about the community. First and foremost the event is giving to the community.
All profits from the Show will go towards the funding of education for staff of The National Burn Unit and and Assisted Education Scholarships.
The show is run by the The Rotary Club of Papakura. This club is one of New Zealand’s most established Clubs with a membership of some 50 Rotarian’s. We are no strangers to holding substantial fund raising events and pride ourselves in the professional manner in which we approach and carry these out. Each year the Rotary Club of Papakura contributes a considerable amount of time and money to both the Greater South Auckland Community and as well as internationally.
Everyone who works for the Show gives there time to the show and the community for free. Apart from all the volunteers at the event, the brand development, online strategy and implementation as well as some aspects of the offline event strategy have been created collaboratively by drrobertdavis.com. Colin Macdonald is overseeing all aspects of project management and strategy for the Show.
But best of all it is about you. The individuals and clubs who show their motorcycles at the Star Insurance Classic and Custom Bike Show. You the public who come to the Show and are amazed by the beauty and power of these motorcycles.
The community is online!
A key part of the Show is the online community. This is how we extend the event and giving beyond 2 days in a year to the whole year. This is how we create a sustainable brand and event. Importantly, it is the primary way in which costs are reduced and profits are maximized for the event. We are reminded that all profits from the Show will go towards the funding of education for staff of The National Burn Unit and and Assisted Education Scholarships.
