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 ‚
