My experience as well. The rules can vary from club to club and regionally, but I have usually found them very accomodating considering the small number of pre-65 bikes around. Even the lighter weight Cubs, Bantams and older Spanish bikes are disappearing as the machines (and their riders!) age.
I look forward to seeing one if the big UK classic events some day. Thanks for the great pics Kevin.
