Spag­forth spot­ting

Old Bike Australasia - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

While re­turn­ing from the re­cent Walcha Chal­lenge TT (a must-do yearly event for vin­tage and clas­sic mo­tor­cy­cles or­gan­ised by the Taree District Vin­tage & Clas­sic Mo­tor­cy­cle Club), I came across what is pos­si­bly a later model Spagabago parked in one of the small towns along the Buck­ett’s Way. This caused me to con­sider whether any of the Jes­sop fam­ily were con­duct­ing test­ing of Spag­forth pro­to­types on this mo­tor­bike chal­leng­ing route. In what was an omi­nous por­tent, the Spagabago was parked next to the lo­cal Am­bu­lance sta­tion, hope­fully they have not got their am­bi­tions mixed up with their abil­i­ties, as has pre­vi­ously hap­pened in the past. John In­gle VJMC Well spot­ted John. This ap­pears to be the econ­omy model Spagabago, known as the Catswinger, which was equally as un­suc­cess­ful as the larger ver­sion. The rea­son be­hind its prox­im­ity to the lo­cal am­bu­lance sta­tion could be that the oc­cu­pants wished to be treated for mo­tion sick­ness. - Ed ‚
