MORE than 2,000 motorbikes were on display when the Royston and District Motorcycle Club held its 21st annual show at Meldreth.
A range of machines from Harley Davidsons to scooters were to be seen at Meldreth Manor Riding School.
There were activities such as BMW running ride-outs on their machines while Yamaha took promotional bikes to the event.
The winning bike was a 1965 Lambretta scooter. The owner, Andy Impey, had painted the machine orange and had it carrying the message: "Can't get over my memories."

Show organiser Steve Coningsby said: "Records had been hand-painted on the bike. You felt as if you could pick them up."
There was also a wide range of trade stalls with £9,000 being raised for the East Anglian Air Ambulance and Meldreth Manor School.

World superbike champion, Troy Courser, and motorcycle commentator, Steve Parish, were special guests at the event.
Mr Coningsby said: "It was hectic, but there were some fantastic bikes. The Harley Davidsons in particular sparked well.
"We got the show running a lot smoother because we had organised it better. It seems to be getting better every year, but we are bursting at the seams at the moment.
"We now have better trade stalls because people really want to come."
The show took Mr Coningsby four months to organise, but he said it could not have been done without the support of the motocycle club and Tracey and Charlie Bateman, of Meldreth Manor Riding School.
Next year's show is expected to take place in June.
