I see that the Aust 4 day Enduro is only a month away. Just checked the fund raising site and it needs a healthy kick of donations to meet the nominated  riders target of $15 K.

At the moment there's only $1400 in there, a very poor response in my books,come on support your mates.
Bultaco Metralla, Matador MK 5, Montadero mk2, El Bandido model 18,plus lots of bits and two Honda XR's 250,350.

Thanks for the prompt. The fundraicsng effort will go through to the Masters Games in November, but you are right its rather poor.

What a sad, sad day it is & such a loss to everyone of such a gifted person. Hard to imagine the constant pressure & internal stresses on his day to day life that he would force him take his own life.  Sadly missed & reinforces the importance of mens depression

Not sure I will be there yet.  I'm running out of bikes, they keep breaking faster than I can fix them  :o :o
Looking for YZ250C parts NOS if possible
