Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX • BURT MUNRO CHALLENGE • FRANK ARTHUR AT -

Well known His­toric racer and pro­pri­etor of Red­fern Mo­tor Parts in Cor­ri­mal, NSW, Tony Blain, ad­vises of the for­ma­tion of an Aus­tralian chap­ter of the An­tique Mo­tor Cy­cle Club of Amer­ica and the an­nounce­ment of a sig­na­ture event, the AMCA Aus­tralia Na­tional, Au­gust 25-27,2017. “The AMCA (An­tique Mo­tor­cy­cle Club of Amer­ica), has been op­er­a­tional since the early 1950s, and has over 70 Branches or Chap­ters around the world, pre­dom­i­nantly in USA. I have been a Mem­ber for as long as I can re­mem­ber. I was ap­proached by the AMCA Pres­i­dent to con­sider set­ting up an Aus­tralian Branch, when we met in Ve­gas early this year. Aussie has enough Clubs, I reck­oned, how­ever when I con­sid­ered their mantra – all mo­tor­cy­cles, all mod­els and all makes, 35 years and older, I re­alised a na­tional event like that does not ex­ist here, and it should. I ac­cepted the chal­lenge and along with our Board of hand picked col­leagues, we have set about the task,” says Tony. “Bulli Showground­s is the cho­sen venue and has space over the years for growth, as we in­tend to have this event, on the same dates, and same venue go­ing for­ward. Over 10,000 AMCA mem­bers en­joy be­ing a part of the AMCA, and in ad­di­tion to us pro­vid­ing hope­fully, a yearly “must do” Aus­tralian event, I feel this is good for the sport of An­tique, Vin­tage and Clas­sic Mo­tor­cy­cles, and the op­por­tu­nity to have all en­thu­si­asts of dif­fer­ent makes and mod­els 35 years and older, em­brace like minded in­di­vid­u­als. So far the re­sponse has been most pos­i­tive as we com­mence ad­vis­ing en­thu­si­asts around Aus­tralia and the world.” For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Tony Blain on 0419 229605.
