The Vintage Bicycle Show & Shine
takes place on Saturday August 7th at the Noosa Marina
The Show and Shine is a big part of the Noosa Strade Bianche and provides a platform for steel bike enthusiasts to display their pride and joy. The Show & Shine also includes a dedicated swap meet for those wanting to whittle down their collection!
Admission is free to the event, however if you wish to exhibit a bike, there is a $5 fee. If you would like to setup a swap meet marquee stall, the space is available to hire at $25 per marquee (2.5 × 2.5m: 2 max). Limited spaces, please book online.
The Show & Shine begins at 10am. Exhibitors/stallholders need to arrive from 9am. Presentations begin at 12pm.
Categories for judging in this year’s Show & Shine:
- Pre-1970 unrestored
- Pre-1970 restored
- 1970-1990 unrestored
- 1970-1990 restored
- post 1990- Neo Retro- Keeper of the Flame (steel frame but modern components allowed)
- Best in Show (Judge’s choice)
- People’s Choice. (unclassified)
Judging criteria will be based on a perfect score, with mark downs for things like non-period correct parts, cleanliness etc.
A printed history of the entry, if known, is an advantage. Bikes will be racked in these categories to enable easier comparison. NSB Rough Red is up for grabs as well as the glory.
The Noosa Strade Bianche is a not for profit event and a worthy cause is supported each year.
