History

The Highland Classic Motorcycle Club

The club was formed in May 1983 to bring together, on a regular basis, people who had a common interest in older British, European and American motorcycles. By 1986 this had changed to include Japanese motorcycles over 20 years old. This was later amended to include all motorcycles over 15 years old.

Our aim is to cater for all interests and aspects of road motorcycling, from restorations to general care and maintenance, and general road-riding, whether you own a Veteran, Classic or fairly modern machine (over 15 years old) and to encourage and promote the use of older motorcycles.

A booklet with the full history of the club was produced by Sue Hanson for the clubs twentieth anniversary, and details the clubs humble beginnings in 1983 with Bob Fraser and Alastair Alexander, the first Loch Ness Rally, and much more, right up to May 2003.

The booklet has been updated to cover the first 25 years of the club. A copy of this book will be given to new members as part of their welcome pack.
