Portraits of Vintage Bikers

It’s been quite a long time since I last went out to do a bit of street photography. Not in the traditional sense for the purists who search for the decisive moment but in my very own way of course which in this case is going to an outdoor, public event and taking photos of people I find interesting.

On Sunday, March 24th was the 80th Sunbeam Motorcycle Club Pioneer Run from Epsom to Brighton. Where collector bikers ride older than Matusalem (pre-WWI) motorcycles down to Madeira Drive on Brighton’s seafront and display them for us to admire such jewels of engineering and craftsmanship.

It’s a great day out, especially if the weather is nice. Families come out and enjoy watching the bikes ride along the seafront and chatting to the riders, even the current wife enjoyed it!

Here are a few shots from this and previous bike runs:


Gear used:
