Anyone know of Phil Barlow, ex racer & sidecar builder?
« on: July 22, 2020, 12:21:39 PM »
My first job in the motorcycle industry was at Alan Lambert Motorcycles (Suz & Bultaco dealer) in Mordialloc (Vic). A mechanic that worked there was a chap by the name of Phil Barlow, he then left Al's shop and started his own shop in Frankston, making sidecars (my second job in the industry).

Phil was trailriding well into his 80's, l haven't seen Phil for many years, l'd love to catch-up with him, hope someone can help.
