British Motor Bike Owners

British Motor Bike Owners

BRIMBO is a club for local bikers interested in riding their bikes and socialising.  Founded as a group for keeping British bikes on the road, the club now welcomes members with all makes and ages of bikes, although many of the shows we attend favour older marques.

Membership is open to all, with no restriction on type age or nationality of bike, though a lot of members have a strong interest in British and classic bikes. Newcomers are always welcome and a year's subscription, if you decide to join, is just £12 a year. Renewals are due in January. Subscription for members who join in the last 3 months of the year will also cover for the subsequent year. Join us now »

         Lopham Bike Meet, Classic Bike Show         

and Autojumble, 22nd August 2021


Thank you so much to everyone who attended our autojumble and bike meet on Sunday, and a big thank you to everyone who helped on the gate, with parking and pitches and in the village hall, especially the refreshments team.

Rain stopped play around 12.30, shortly after the trophies were awarded, and most people had left by an hour later, but we were very lucky to have a clear morning with maybe a couple of hundred bikes, with lots of interest shown in the Blood Bikes stand, English Electric display bike and the autojumblers who braved the weather forecast.  As a result of the event, we were able to make a £130 donation to Blood Bikes.


Thank you everyone!!

Norfolk Blood Bikes Talk 5th Feb 2020

We had a very interesting talk from Jon Doran of Norfolk Blood Bikes explaining the work that the group does and the complex organisation needed in the background to keep things running and to get riders and products to where they need to be. He also provided details of two Triumphs they are currently selling:


Triumph No 1: 

Triumph No 2:






Thank you to everyone who came to the Lopham meet. It's really appreciated that people supported our local event. We had over 400 bikes on the day, helped by some dry weather. Norfolk Blood Bikes had a good day with plenty of visitors to their stand. We had a good number of autojumble stalls and many people were able to find their elusive parts, even a couple of motorcycles were sold.  Trophies were handed out to some very deserving winners. There was plenty of food with some delicious ice creams from Mike's van to finish off. We were be able to donate £500 to the Norfolk Blood Bikes from the proceeds of the day, presented to Fleet Manager Jon Doran at the club meeting on Wednesday 7th August.
