From creek to con­cours

Old Bike Australasia - - OUT ’N’ ABOUT -

I have en­closed two pho­tos of a 1953 350 MAC Ve­lo­cette which I bought from a Qan­tas fel­low. It had been pulled out of a Malaysian creek, it was com­pletely rusted up and many parts were miss­ing in­clud­ing the clutch. I fully re­stored it and rode it to the Rusty Iron Rally where it won the tro­phy for the best re­stored bike. The car own­ers judged the bikes and the bike blokes judged the cars.

ABOVE Another 1955 shot show­ing Sgt. Eric Moore, win­ner of the NSW Side­car Cham­pi­onship. Eric was a co-founder of the track and a mem­ber of the Army Mo­tor Cy­cle Cub.
