Suzuki / 1969/70 TS250 clutch plates
« on: June 19, 2018, 08:23:04 PM »
I'm screwing together a Pre70 TS250 and looking for some advice on the clutch friction plates.
These 69/70 use an 18 tab, all 'cork' friction plate versus the later 12 tab type that are usually metal reinforced.

Does anyone know if there is a metal reinforced 18 tab plate available- perhaps from an early TM?

The track is about 4.5 K from the Gellibrand township Melways Ref.X926H9

Competition / Port Campbell Classic Scramble
« on: May 16, 2016, 09:33:24 AM »
The Classic Scramble Cub's Port Campbell meeting went off well yesterday. We had a big turnout of riders, spectators and the important volunteer officials.

This track is set on a spectator friendly gentle hill and the riders make their way around and down and then back up. The surface yesterday was perfect- not quite a golf course - and very agreeable to the older riders.

General Discussion / Classic Scramble Club Inc
« on: April 18, 2016, 03:44:59 PM »
The extraordinary meeting of the Classic Scramble Club Inc called last month, was held last night, and for procedural reasons was followed by a general meeting. The open positions of President, Vice President and Assistant Secretary have been filled by John Kempers, Mat Pagdin and Bernard Andrivon respectively. There was also a motion passed asking for the Secretary, Ross Martin, who was not present, to show cause why he should not stand down.

Members have had their say and we now have a functional leadership group and assurance that this years scheduled race meetings will go ahead. The Moyston round has been brought forward a week and will now run on June 5th. This will give the members heading to Harrisville QLD for the Australian Classic Nationals on the 18th and 19th more preparation time.

Tech Talk / Metisse Pre70 replica frame build.
« on: March 03, 2016, 03:39:58 PM »
After deciding I didn't want to pay the 10 to 20k being asked for decent Pre70 twins I've acquired  an XS650.                                                                                                                                             

 I am looking at building a metisse replica rather than using the sow's ear Yammy frame. I know there are various replica frames available that are flame bronzed, TIG bronzed and welded: my question is are the welded frames regarded as kosher?

General Discussion / Dunkeld Classic Scramble cancelled.

This bad news arrived in my inbox last night.

Members have contacted the committee advising that they will not be able to attend the DUNKELD meeting as they will be going to the Phillip Island GP. At the Management Committee Meeting the issue was discussed and with much consideration and no matter which way we looked at it, whatever date we picked some other event was on such as Bathurst 1000, World Speedway. A random pick of members advised that they will be going to at least one of these events.
So the following was taken into consideration;
The number of riders at the last event at Dunkeld
The number of riders that will not be attending this year
The high cost of running this event (a breakdown of the costs to run events will be in the next Newsletter).
Although we cannot please everyone a survey of members for a suitable date in October next year will be undertaken.
ON OCTOBER 11, 2015
The meeting will be run under Motorcycling Victoria therefore a MA licence is required (1 day licence @ $25.00 will be available). ENTRY FREE $25.00
