Move Over Charlie - the new Golden Ticket!

You may have seen the post on the David Silver Facebook page over the past few weeks that the Copdock Classic Motorcyle Club in Suffolk, England, have recently acquired one of their lovingly restored CB400Fs from them.  The bike was collected on the 13th March by Phil Sayer and other members of the CCMC.

This really is a fantastic opportunity to own a CB400F for yourself.   The lucky winning tickets will be drawn at the Copdock Show on Sunday 4th October 2015 - I think David Silver will be handing the keys over to the winner.  
Personally I can't wait to get my own ticket.  I have no idea whether you can purchase them by post or not but I am sure if you contact Phil Sayer via the website you can find out.

You can find out all about the show by visiting their website at 


I asked Phil Sayer to give a few words about the raffle:

"The Copdock bike show has been running for 24 years, and every year we sell draw tickets in aid of a local charity with a classic bike as a prize. (We've given away over £300,000 over the last 24 years from the money raised at the shows.) This year's charity for the draw bike is the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service http://www.sars999.org.uk/, to whom we have given £7,500 to equip a new volunteer paramedic.

Why a CB400F? We have always had British bikes before - BSAs, Triumphs, Nortons...but we thought the time had come to try something different. We wanted an iconic bike that would appeal to all age groups, not just old men in their 60s who had British bikes as youngsters. The CB400F is a great bike from the 70s and we are already selling tickets to people, including lady riders, who say "I always wanted one of those!". James May and the Classic Bike Magazine project bike have all helped of course.

We sell tickets at the various bike shows we visit during the year to promote the show. In the last couple of weeks we've been to Southend for the Ace Cafe Easter Monday shakedown run, and last weekend to Colchester for 'Classics on the Quay'."
