Hil­lview Er­ror

Old Bike Australasia - - OUT IN THE SHED -

In the last is­sue was the story I sub­mit­ted re­gard­ing the Hil­lview Short Cir­cuit at Muswell­brook. I men­tioned that the 1960 Aus­tralian Ti­tles were con­ducted over two days of the Queen’s Birth­day week­end in June. How­ever this is not cor­rect as the ti­tles were on the Sun­day only. There was a gen­eral meet­ing con­ducted on the Mon­day and one source tells me that it was a Re­stricted meet­ing for those mem­bers of clubs within North­ern Cen­tre, that is New­cas­tle and sur­round­ing re­gion. Also I said that Norm Fraser was a mem­ber of Lyons club, when in fact this should have been Lakes. Thought that I should rec­tify these er­rors be­fore editor Jim gave me “the sack”. with some 375 peo­ple pass­ing through. The Show and Shine had some sixty cars and about 40 mo­tor­cy­cles from lo­cal and New­cas­tle based clubs. For 2016 we are ex­am­in­ing the pos­si­bil­ity of hav­ing an auc­tion con­ducted for both car and mo­tor­cy­cles but not parts. In­ter­ested par­ties who may wish to lodge ve­hi­cles can con­tact me so as we can as­sess if this is go­ing to be a vi­able idea. I am also in ne­go­ti­a­tion with a tourist bus op­er­a­tor to de­ter­mine if it is pos­si­ble next year to con­vey both car and mo­tor­cy­cle en­thu­si­asts from Mel­bourne to Nabiac.

Ad­di­tion­ally if any reader has ac­cess to a bus or even a 20 seater rental bus we would like to or­gan­ise a sim­i­lar con­tin­gent from the Bris­bane area. Con­tact me if you wish to ob­tain a seat in these buses. This is a 1971 model ma­chine which has low mileage since a re­build and is fit­ted with Boyer ig­ni­tion and Mikuni car­bu­re­tors. You have to be present to win and last year there was four num­bers drawn be­fore a win­ner was awarded the ma­chine. A Bike Show will be con­ducted 8.00am to 10.45am on Sun­day. This is open to club el­i­gi­ble ma­chines only. The classes are for pre 1930, 1945, 1962, 1972, 1984 and com­pe­ti­tion mo­tor­cy­cles.

Fancy win­ning this Tiger 650? Just be at the Lai­d­ley Swap and you’re in with a chance .
