Ron’s G45 has been around!

Old Bike Australasia - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

Fur­ther to the ar­ti­cle about Ron Robin­son, l bought the G45 from Ron at Phillip Is­land in 1961-2 and rode it for about three years and then sold it to Bill Hors­man at Mal­lala. He sub­se­quently told that the en­gine was fit­ted into a speed car and the a tri­umph was fit­ted into the bike which I saw at Phillip Is­land in later year, Bill also told me that the en­gine fin­ished in a mu­seum in the USA. Here are some photos of the bike with me sit­ting on it and the one with the num­ber 100 on it was when Bernie Cole­man rode it at Mal­lala one time. Feel free to pub­lish this if you like. I was a mem­ber of the Pre­ston Mo­tor Cy­cle club when I was rac­ing and also helped Kel Carruthers in Europe in 1967 which was a great ex­pe­ri­ence. Pa­trick Bruce Bit­tern, Vic
