National Veteran Rally - Tasmania 10-15 March 2019

We’re off to Tasmania on a compulsory work trip doing some Market and Product Research. We have to take our oldest bikes and participate in some marketing activities while we are there. This also means shutting down the workshop for a couple of weeks so there may be some delays with orders arriving after mid February. (Pictures from the 2017 National Veteran Rally - Nuriootpa SA.)

Bendigo Swapmeet 2018

Our busiest swap-meet ever, hundreds of enquiries and a fistful of orders taken for new mudguards and fenders. There was a good scattering of vintage and veteran projects and even complete bikes and cars on offer. We’ll be back in 2019, same building (BEC) maybe a different spot. Thanks go to Franc Trento @ Eurobrit Motorbikes in Melbourne for his generous logistic support.

Australian National Veteran Rally

Wow, what a great week of touring the Barossa Valley on century old bikes. Over 140 riders with over 200 bikes made the trek to South Australia in September.  We just got back from the 6000km round trip to be a part of this major rally. Andrew took his 1910 Norton and 1913 Yale,  I had my 1910 Triumph and 1918 Reading Standard. Even if you didn't get to ride, the bikes, the atmosphere and camaraderie is worth the trip.
