Copdock Classic Bike Show 2018 Ipswich

Postby DEEP DIVER » Thu Oct 11, 2018 3:39 pm

Last Sunday we had the 27th Copdock show at Ipswich. Here is a write up with loads of pictures.

We had a few good days setting up for the show at Ipswich, I was on site from Thursday getting 2 halls marked out. Today we had the show and the weather was fine with light wind and sun. My camera was well used and I have a few hundred pictures to sort out and upload.
