The New Zealand Motorcycle Show Bike Entry

Entries are now closed

Our desire is to have as many different bikes of the highest quality on show as possible and may need to limit multiple entries and bikes not deemed of suitable quality. We also want to ‘Fill the Hall’ so please don’t be put off by this as we hope not to eliminate any entry. The show has a capacity of 500 bikes so there should be no problem with space however when this number is reached, entries will be closed. The following motorcycle categories will be shown:

  • Veteran (up to end of 1918).
  • Vintage (1919-end of 1931).
  • Pre-war (1932-end of 1945).
  • Post-war (1946-end of 1955).
  • Classic I (1956-end of 1966).
  • Classic II (1967-end of 1978).
