Old Bike Australasia - - CONTENTS -

Dave Ban­cell is on the hunt for his old Yamaha TZ750. “I once had the ex- John Wil­liams “Ap­pleby Glade” TZ750D. It was re­stored af­ter John Wil­liams’ (fa­tal) crash in Ire­land in 1978, by John New­bold and Pete Spinks (John Wil­liams’ me­chanic). The bike was also owned by Dave Or­ton (Mr Ap­pleby Glade) who I still keep contact with. I sold it in 2002 and I have been look­ing to re­lo­cate it with a view to buy back. I sold the TZ750D in 2002 to a Ja­son Vade, who owned Blue & Green Tour Ser­vices, and I shipped the bike to 46 Cav­ille Ave Surfers Par­adise, Queens­land. The phone and email I have are no longer ac­tive. I be­lieve that this per­son who I was deal­ing with was act­ing as an “agent” for a col­lec­tor in Queens­land, but they never di­vulged the name of this col­lec­tor and I re­mem­ber they said “he” wanted to re­main anony­mous, but I had a feel­ing it was the guy who had the dis­play in Hamil­ton Is­land (Keith Wil­liams), but that could be in­cor­rect. If any­one can help me track down the Yamaha I would ap­pre­ci­ate it. I can be con­tacted on 0414 183 298 or email david­ban69@gmail.com
