Accomodation

Bikers Loft Groendijk

Bikers Loft Groendijk presents itself as a youth hostel for adults without stars, basic but clean and comfortable and including restaurant, café and late-night amusement.  Live gigs are programmed on a regular basis.  26 basic rooms, build around an inner parksite where the bikes stay safe, dry and in the centre of interest.  Sheets, towels and soap are provided.
The area is in the middle of the quiet Flemish Polders and only a few miles away from Oostende, fifteen minutes from Brugge, and a one hour ride from Calais.

In the back of the building is the Oldtimer Motorcycle Museum, run by Johan Schaeverbeke.

Art

Nick Ward

Nick Ward’s motor cycle drawings appear in several of the monthly magazines—in particular his "Classic Buying Guide" is a regular feature in Classic Bike Guide.  The smaller capacity machines are often the subjects of Nick’s drawings—and you can see some of these in our Nick Ward Gallery.  Nick is an unashamed technophobe—no answerphone, no mobile, no fax, no e-mail, no website—but Andy Tiernan maintains a Nick Ward page on his website.

Auctions

buyvintage.co.uk is an auction site set up by Colin Kirsch and Andy Tiernan.  Although it obviously has a commercial basis, it is also of general interest; the site has been built in a way that will let it remain a public resource for everyone to use as a price-guide after the auction.

...and once it’s registered, you’ll need to make the number plates.  Brian Godfrey did for his Dunkley Popular and he writes: "I used the original number plates ... and have used 2" high, self adhesive vinyl letters and numbers in the correct "Charles Wright" font.  I obtained these from David Mills at a price for 4 sets (1 spare in case of mistakes) of £7.40 + P&P.  He was very helpful, very prompt and I received a good product with clear fitting instructions."

IceniCAM reader, Paul Sloan, reports that Lambrook Tyres can supply 2.00×21 tyres in whitewall and standard black.  Paul suggests that these will be suitable as autocycle tyres but, in addition to that, they will be ideal for early Mobylettes and other 1950s mopeds as they are equivalent to a 600×50B tyre.  The same range should also be available from Vintage Tyre Supplies who, we understand, have taken over Lambrook.

Reifenwerk Heidenau in Germany produces a range of moped tyres.  In the UK, they are available from Bitzforbikes (see above)
