ALMOST 200 former regulars at an Eastbourne biker cafe in the ‘60s and ‘70s gathered for a reunion.

Petrol heads who used to make a pit stop at The Highlight Cafe in Cavendish Place 50 years ago met up at the Red Lion in Stone Cross on November 19, with the then owners of the cafe also in attendance.

Organiser Brian Barrow said, “There were a lot of memories exchanged after such a long time and everyone seemed to really enjoy the evening.”

News stories of the cafe and the motorcyclists featured in the Herald more than 40 years ago when a row broke out between them and local residents, who complained of the noise made when they left Highlight Cafe late at night.
