Are you out there, James?

Old Bike Australasia - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

I have been try­ing to lo­cate the where­abouts of a fam­ily mo­tor cy­cle for quite some time but have just run up blind al­leys. It is a 1948-49 James 197cc with plunger rear end, bought by my fa­ther in Syd­ney in 1948-49 which he rode for some time be­fore he gave it to my brother and I to ride to work. When we had fin­ished with the bike I sold it to a friend who also rode it to work. My Friend then gave the bike to the den­tist in Childers, Vic­to­ria, who then passed this bike to his brother who was a doc­tor on the Gold Coast with a col­lec­tion of old mo­tor cy­cles. This would have been ap­prox. 45 years ago and the Gold Coast is where the trail ends. If there is any­one who knows of the bike or any his­tory of the bike I would very much like to hear from you.

I showed the dealer the dam­age to the lug­gage rack and was told I could get it fixed – at my ex­pense. Sev­eral months later the soft pack’s in­side fab­ric be­gan tear­ing. Point be­ing, in good faith, I did try and pa­tro­n­ise a small busi­ness by pur­chas­ing an ac­ces­sory. It was not only in­fe­rior and dam­aged the lug­gage rack, it was al­most 3 times the cost it would’ve been via in­ter­net/big box stores. Hence I do be­lieve smaller busi­nesses do have a role, in their own sit­u­a­tion. Thanks for an ex­cel­lent mag­a­zine! Bryan Fowler Oak­dale, NSW
