A KEIGHLEY motorcycle dealership is staging an event in tribute to its founder.

The company – named after Colin Appleyard, who started the firm in 1970 – is dedicating its annual classic motorcycle show on July 1 to his memory.

Mr Appleyard died two years ago, aged 79.

Owners of classic bikes are being invited to take along their machines to the free event, being held at the firm's Wellington Road showroom from noon to 3pm.

Bike shop general manager, Kevin Feeny, said: "We are looking for a great display of bikes.

"Colin's first love was motorcycles – he lived and breathed them all his life.

"We are sure he would have loved this show so we're urging people to come along and make it a fitting tribute to a man who built his business around bikes."

There will be prizes for best in class and best in show and food will be available.

Any donations will go to Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice Manorlands, the company's charity of the year.
