Vintage Track / Nepean Dirt Track meeting 30 July 2017
« on: August 02, 2017, 10:22:22 AM »
Here are a few shots from the Pre '70 Open and Pre '75 Open at Sunday's meeting at Nepean. I'm getting quicker with each outing on the Triumph Thunderbird. Sunday's 3rd place in the Pre '70 Open was very significant for this old codger. My first motorcycle racing trophy was won on 25 June 1967 and Sunday's trophy is 50 years later !! :P

British (BSA, Greeves, Triumph etc) / Purple Dave's new aquisition
« on: February 07, 2017, 10:31:32 PM »
I had a test ride on Sunday of a 1953 BSA framed 650 Triumph Thunderbird....It was for sale, so I bought it !!.....As if my SC 500 wasn't scary enough.......I'm looking forward to racing this methanol burner this year...For anyone going to the Dargle Resto in March. I'll have the unit on show and be giving the SC 500 a blast on the grasstrack.. :D 8)

If you are over 60, you can ride for FREE !!...........I qualify, I'm over 60 and I'm in the 1973 photo.........



???????????? FYEAH,......So here we go again!!!
Good news is if your over 60 years young (or feature in the pic below) you get to ride dirt for free*

Who the hell is dusting off a pre90 machine and coming for a skid???

Foto Forum / Changing era from Scramble to Moto Cross........1970
« on: July 21, 2015, 07:42:13 PM »
I found this program in my late Dad's collection from 1970........NSW Grand National Moto Cross at Moorebank........must be one of my first Open meetings on my stock standard Yamaha DT1. There are some very famous names in this one, and it really shows the changing machinery in the sport, from old to modern.......like, Cotton, Greeves, Metisse to Bultaco, Maico, Suzuki, Yamaha. Interesting also, advertising the next meeting at Mount Kembla on 13 December........I've included the results sheet from that meeting. This was so early for me, my race number was 291, not 516. I loved my DT1 and after fitting a Hot Up Kit, it was quite a successful bike in "C" grade........I sold the bike to John Behrens at the end of 1971. It was his first race bike.











One of the bikes in the NSW Grand National Moto Cross is now owned by my good friend, Gregg McLean.........#13 Col Evans' Matchless / Metisse.........he will be racing it in the Pre '65 class at the Australian Classic Dirt Track Championships at Temora on 5 & 6 September..............

General Discussion / Bikies At Large
« on: November 08, 2013, 08:35:44 PM »
The NSW Consorting Squad has uncovered a Bikie Gang with links to other motorcycle groups. This gang has been operating in NSW since 1928........this photo was unearthed by the Squad this week in Gosford, NSW........2 well known BIKIES going by the nicknames of Matcho Mick and Purple Dave ( alias....Alvin ) are wanted for questioning in regards to THE GANG.........

Last Saturday I ventured up to Tamworth for a little LAST MINUTE practice for Temora.......I was invited by Tamworth and ex fellow Central MCC member, Gregg McLean.
A great roll up of young and very talented speedway riders from NSW and QLD, together with a strong dirt track field....
FABULOUS speedway track, with a right hand dog leg on the back straight for dirt track.....
Gregg and I were the only 2 Vintage Riders with Vintage Bikes, so we were a CURIOSITY to the young blokes....... ???

Having a rest after practice...... :P


Getting ready for race.... 8)
