Please respond to this email if you wish to attend or ring Bob Cole on 0429 177 413, we will also call for a show of hands at the General Meeting on Tuesday 24th of this month.

BYO chair, drinks – there is a kiosk at the park selling soft drinks, tea and coffee. There has been some $2m spent on upgrading the playground for the kids, so bring them along too. Look for the Classic Owners Club feathers at the park – plenty of shade offered by the many trees.

Festival of Motorcycling 2022

8 Aug

Our club is again heavily involved in the organisation of this year’s festival, which runs for 9 days from October 1st – 9th. The club is hosting 3 events and hopes to see many of our members participate in them.

Club member, Peter Perry, has devised a ‘Painted Silos Tour’ for the opening day – Saturday 1st October. These tour rides are  for those who prefer their motorcycling rides just that little bit longer. There are 2 rides: The Tour Ride 404 kms and the longer Endurance Ride 670 kms.

Day 5 Thursday October 5th, our club is hosting the Barossa Valley ride. A ride leader has been appointed, but we still need volunteers to help marshall the course. The SA Adventure Bike Riders have also arranged a ride, which should appeal to off-road riders, both rides meeting for lunch at the Vine Inn, Nuriootpa.

The final event of the festival on October 8th & 9th is Classics at Hart to be held at Harts Mill, Port Adelaide, which includes a grand display (focusing on Australian made machines, but not excluding other marques), a cavalcade along the northern beaches and a Show ‘n’ Shine, organised by Levis MCC. Members are encouraged to enter their bikes for the display and again, volunteers are called for to help out over the weekend. This is our club’s major event for 2022 and we hope to attract a lot of public interest, as we have done in the past.

Historic race bikes at tonight’s General Meeting

23 Nov

Who said general meetings were boring?

At our final General Meeting of 2021, club member Phil Baughan gave us a chat about his two  historic racing bikes:  A  650cc Triumph 6T engine in a BSA A10 frame sporting a Suzuki GT750 4-leading shoe front brake and a Honda CB350 twin with Amal concentric carbs. Both bikes have been modified considerably over several years of racing with parts designed and made by Phil himself.   

It was a very interesting night, the two bikes are a credit to Phil’s mechanical and fabricating skills, and both nicely turned out with matching paint jobs too!

The next General Meeting will be held on Tuesday 25th January 2022 at 7:45pm at the West Croydon & Kilkenny RSL.
