When we had the idea to do this everyone thought it was great. The reality is that we could not agree in what order they should be placed or if we had the images required to make the top ten. It would be fair to say that these are the most common repairs we see and to a certain degree can be complicated  to complete.

MARGATE MELTDOWN


trickplas

 

The biking season is well under way this year. With some great  weather forecast for  this week it is time for a sicky so you can get out on the bike.
 

Date: Bank Holiday Monday 25th May, Depart Cafe:10.30am

Route: A406 – A13 – M25 – A2 – M2 – A299 to Margate seafront
The 8th annual Margate Meltdown is the most recently established of Ace Cafe London’s free to attend major ride outs.

The ride out from the cafe to this popular seaside resort in Kent has been held each year on occasion of the annual Spring Bank Holiday. Margate seafront and harbour is given over to motorcycles and scooters, diverse club and trade stands, a stage with live entertainment from Noon,
featuring Lewis Chamberlain & The Converters, together with rockin’ DJ’s Bill & George Guntrip

Working closely with the cafe’s chosen charity for this event, The Royal British Legion Riders Branch (RBLRB), the town and Thanet District Council, Margate not only has everything that a great ride out requires,  but also a great beach and plenty of heritage to include a legacy from the 1960s that is of world renown relating to motorbikes, scooters and the Mods & Rockers that rode them!
