The Highland Classic Motorcycle Club
The Highland Classic Motorcycle 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. The club now welcomes all makes & models of motorcycles up to modern classics.
Our aim is to cater for all interests and aspects of road motorcycling, from restorations, to general care and maintenance, general road riding, whether you own a Veteran, Classic or fairly modern machine and to encourage and promote the use of older motorcycles.
Membership stands at around 70 members, from various age groups and with a wide range of motorcycle knowledge and experience. They come from as far a field as Tain, Portree, Grantown, Elgin and Banff, with some members residing in Edinburgh, the Midlands and Wales.
