Show time in Mackay

Old Bike Australasia - - OUT’N’ABOUT -

The Bri­tish Mo­tor­cy­cle Own­ers As­so­ci­a­tion of Mackay is stag­ing their 31st All Bike Show on the 19th and 20th of July at The Old Pax­ton’s Build­ing on River Street. This year the club is go­ing to push the theme of restor­ing mo­tor­cy­cles call­ing the show “Get­ting it to­gether”. The com­mit­tee de­cided as part of the Show to try and help those en­thu­si­asts who are keen on restor­ing a bike, by dis­play­ing a be­fore and af­ter ex­am­ple. Thanks to sev­eral mem­bers that have com­pleted restora­tion on their bikes, and mem­bers that have ex­actly the same bikes un­re­stored or in bas­ket case con­di­tion, we will be able to go ahead with this con­cept. The ex­hibit is to be manned by ex­pe­ri­enced mem­bers of the Club, who will hope­fully be able to an­swer the ques­tions of the in­ter­ested pub­lic to help get them started in a pas­sion that can not only drive you crazy but also to meet some friendly like minded en­thu­si­asts. Plus there will be a whole lot of mo­tor­cy­cles on show chas­ing the dif­fer­ent tro­phies that are awarded in 15 sep­a­rate cat­e­gories. For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Lawrie Kapitzke on 0407639884, Dale Kennedy on 0418185974 or 49522799 (work ) or Bob Ink­son on 0418728273 or see the web site www.bmoa.org.au/in­dex
