Vale, Ray Mann

10 Feb

Ray joined our Club in 1977 (member no.180). Ray was always active in the Club in one form or another. He served on the Committee as Vice President, 1993-1995, and 2007-2010. Machine Registrar. 1993-2001 and 2003-2004. He also welcomed new members to our Club from 1997-2001. Ray was also active in assisting in other facets of the Club’s activities, for which combined with his committee activities, he was awarded Life Membership. Ray was always an ideas man, and was largely responsible for the introduction of the Tuesday mid-week club ride. Ray was interested in all things motorcycling, but in particular he considered himself to be a motorcycle/sidecar aficionado. He will be remembered for giving sidecar rides to the children present at various Club functions, including a display at the Strathmont Centre. Ray also dabbled  in sidecar competition events, competing at Mac Park on his BMW R series outfit. He featured on the Classic Courier cover of the 1997 Jan-Feb  edition with fellow club member Julia Lake as passenger in the sidecar.

In his later Club life Ray would attend Club rides on his BMW K1100  outfit.

For Sale : 1973 Triumph T150V

9 Feb

Yes folks it time for me to hand over custody of my Trident. Most of you have seen this machine at several club events. It is on club registration.

It’s very original with 21,000 on the speedo I believe this to be correct. It was an American delivery. Matching engine and frame numbers and that is all three cases. This is important. BH 01212 which makes it February 1973.

I am asking $12000 I don’t think this is unreasonable.

Contact Allan Morris 0425660619 for further details.
