With race entries for Historical Motorcycle classes covering the years 1919~1982 there was plenty of eye candy, the vast majority of bikes were active competition types but there were plenty of production and modified machines on show.

The Phillip Island Expo Building was the site for various club displays including the CBX Owners Club of Australia Inc. and the CB750 (Four) Owners Club.
