Cape Motorbike Club stripWelcome to the online home of the Classic Motorcycle Club of the Western Cape in South Africa.

Our club was established in 1996 and is dedicated to preserving and enjoying all types of classic motor cycle through owning, maintaining and restoring these wonderful machines. Mostly our club members enjoy themselves by keeping their motorbikes where they belong … on the great twisty roads of the Western Cape.

Monthly club meetings are held at the Tokai Library on the last Saturday of each month (except in December) that usually start at 13H30 with a chat and a boerie roll braai (or barbecue to the uninitiated), followed by a short meeting which often includes presentations, advice and talks on a variety of topics related to motor cycles.

New members and visitors are most welcome to come along and join in at any time. Even if you don’t ride yet or you ride a modern bike you’re very welcome. To get in touch with the club directly please click here
