Panthers make journey ‘home’

Owners of historic Panther motorbikes will be riding into Cleckheaton on Sunday in their annual pilgrimage to the town where they were made.

The Panther Owners’ Club organises the event every year and the riders congregate at the Commercial pub in Bradford Road, which is next door to the former Phelon and Moore factory which manufactured the bikes.

Around 30 machines are expected from all over the country, and former Phelon and Moore employees are welcome to go along and meet their owners and be reunited with the bikes that they built.

They are expected to arrive around noon and will be there until around 3pm.
