'Classy little numbers' in Cotton are sure to pull in the crowds to Gloucester's Folk Museum in August.

 

Members of the Cotton Motorcycle Club will be displaying some of their bikes – including a number of rare examples – on Saturday August 10th.

 

The bikes were built and manufactured in the City from the 1920's in a factory almost opposite the museum.

 

The rally is a regular event and this year a plaque commemorating the bikes and the site of the factory is to be unveiled at the museum.

 

Council Leader, Paul James, said: "Cotton motorcycles were championship winning models and displayed exceptional handling ability for their time. They are iconic machines that have their home in Gloucester - one of the facts of which we are very proud."

 

The rally takes place between 10.00 – 5.00 in the Folk Museum Garden to which the entrance is free. Normal charges apply for admission to the museum itself at £3 adults and £2 concessions. Free to members.
