“Proposed trip to Classic TT


Looking to see if any interest in travelling to Isle of Man for Classic TT visit as a group

Visit would include Accommodation, Ferry costs etc

So anyone interested contact me at

Express what you would like and I will see if I can organize a Trip if interested.

A schedule of trips out  would be available for the group but solely up to each member of the party

If they want to follow it.”




well done Richard on a terrific 2nd place

Come on peoplle where are all these lovingly crafted triples. the Stafford show is looming large and we still need more of your triples so we can enter the show.


details below

Dave Bloor our Chairman is running the TR3OC Stand at the October (19th & 20th)  Stafford  classic show. we require a minimum of 6 bikes to be able to enter the show.

So if you have a flat tracker, low rider, chopped  or unusual triple that you would like to see on display  look no further

please reply to dave via email

More bad news i am afraid.

please see message from Richard Darby below


It is with great sadness that I am informing you of the sad parting of John Anderson, of Performance Motorcycles. For many years John kept us on the road with his supply of parts, both new and used, some very rare. So knowledgeable about the triples, he would talk for hours telling you what part fitted which model, and how to overcome all sorts of problems. He was well known in the auto-jumble scene and up until recent years, was a focal point at the Stafford shows. He will be sadly missed.
regards, Richard
