The North West Vintage Motor Cycle Club was formed in April 1981 by a like-minded group of motorcyclists largely from the Coleraine – Portrush – Portstewart "Triangle" area. Such enthusiasts as John Elgin, Jack McKinney and John Scott had for some time been travelling beyond the Triangle in order to enjoy and support vintage and classic motorcycling but it was believed that there was sufficient interest locally to establish a club which might "encourage the ownership, restoration and riding" of older motorcycles. Thus it was decided to gauge the real depth of interest. This turned out to be considerable and led naturally to planning meetings, to formal meetings and then to a variety of local motorcycling events.
Since 1981 the club has gone from strength to strength under the effective chairmanship of Eddie Johnston MBE and many of the original members are still actively involved in restoring and riding machines, in a variety of social events and in fund-raising for worthy causes both local and overseas.
The North West Vintage Motor Cycle Club caters for a wide range of people, providing as it does opportunities for fellowship, friendship, family involvement, linking with other clubs and organisations and, significantly, for supporting causes as mentioned above.
