Po­lice at play

Old Bike Australasia - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

At­tached are some images I’ve fi­nally lo­cated on mo­tor­cy­cle char­iot races. Apolo­gies for the qual­ity, Ko­dak In­sta­matic. These were taken at the old Syd­ney Show­ground at a Po­lice Spec­tac­u­lar, 25th Oc­to­ber 1974. The bikes used were Suzuki two strokes, ei­ther GT380 or GT550s – spec­tac­u­lar stuff with the po­lice jock­eys dressed for the part. From mem­ory it wasn’t just a quiet demo ride, they re­ally got into it! Here is an ex­cerpt from the po­lice an­nual re­port for 1974.
