Held each year this very popular and colourful event showcases not only the Iconic Laverda but also other vintage and classic marques. The event moved to Cleveland Showgrounds 5 years ago after outgrowing the previous venue.

Considered one of the largest shows in the Southern Hemisphere, the annual Laverda show attracts a huge range of bikes that are judged in many classes.

There are some 60 classes to be judged including Cafe Racers, Japanese, American, British and Street machines.

Three wheeled vehicles based on motorcycle engines are also on display, attracting a great deal of attention.

The public is invited to vote for the People's Choice which was won last year by a 1980 Laverda 1200cc entered by Paul Casson.
