Help young riders and
Win a bike!
Phoenix Motorcycle Club is running a rider development lottery to raise funds for South Australians racing overseas. The bike which is first prize was built by former semiprofessional motocross rider Kelvin Franks in the mid-80’s. Kelvin was a South Australian who left for England in the late 1950’s. He raced in Europe and the UK, and eventually found his way to the west coast of the USA in the mid to late 1960s. This coincided with the motocross boom and he did a great trade in modifying motocross bikes for top riders. By the mid-‘80s he was producing hand made parts for the road racing scene, and actually hand built three road racers and a moto-trials bike. These bikes came with him when he returned to South Australia in 1989, but all the bikes were broken up and sold for parts with the exception of the trials bike. It was hand made by Kelvin, with the exception of the (Rotax) motor, carb and forks. Even the wheels were hand made. The lottery will be drawn on Saturday April 22nd, 2017 at the Velocette MCC club rooms, 74 Drayton Street, Bowden, SA. To enter, go to pmc-lottery.com or email [email protected]
You could win this bike, and help young South Australian riders find their feet in Europe.
