The Shannons Insurance Broadford Bike Bonanza is an annual Easter long weekend event, showcasing classic bikes from a bygone era. The event is currently in its ninth year running and now bigger than ever. The 2017 incarnation will be themed as a celebration of all things Ducati and the celebration of the ‘Romsey grasstrack era’.

This is a rare opportunity to showcase a vast collection of classic bikes from different marques and models in one location. Last year’s show saw attendances of over 3500 people and helped shape the BBB as one of their premier classic motorcycle events in the world.

Anyone with a passion for classic bikes will be in motorcycle heaven, with a variety of different manufacturers and makes from various eras on show, with the Italian marque, Ducati highlighted on the back of it’s 90th birthday celebration. The 2017 BBB is the perfect opportunity to engage in the magnificent history, machinery, memorabilia, regalia and passion of the world renown Italian manufacturer.

This year’s Bonanza won’t be one to miss, with a trio of rare Ducati’s headlining the collection; including a 900SS that competed in 1977 Castrol Six Hour race, a factory NCR 860 Ducati ridden in the 1978 Isle of Man TT and a factory 1098cc FC-06 ridden in the World Superbike Championship.

These Ducatis are important bikes of history and to have them on display at the BBB, will be both an honour and a privilege.
