The Clarex Spe­cial

Old Bike Australasia - - OUT’N’ABOUT -

Last is­sue we fea­tured a photo (The Tri­manx) sent in by Mau­rice Austin from the col­lec­tion of side­car racer Alec Cor­ner. Here’s an­other one. This is the Clarex Spe­cial, built by friends and busi­ness part­ners Clar­rie Rial and Rex Tin­gate (fa­ther of Rod). Mau­rice adds,” Clar­rie and Rex’s garage still ex­ists on the Ne­pean High­way and North Road, Gar­den­vale, in­ter­sec­tion, al­beit as car dealer Tiny Town. Clar­rie rented the rear work­shop. I don’t know the lo­ca­tion of the photo but it is circa 1962 and is ob­vi­ously pre-race!”

Rod Tin­gate sup­plied the photo of Clar­rie’s work­shop at Gar­den­vale. Con­trast this with the same lo­ca­tion to­day in the Google im­age.
