VJMC at the Ade­laide Su­per­cars

Old Bike Australasia - - OUT’N’ABOUT -

MICK GODFREY RE­PORTS; On March 1 to 4 the Vin­tage Ja­panese Mo­tor­cy­cle Club had a dis­play of bikes at the Ade­laide 500 Su­per­car event as part of our 35th An­niver­sary year. We col­lected 44 bikes with a good cross section of the main four brands plus a lone Bridge­stone. The ma­chines ranged from a 1971 CB175 Honda through to a 1981 Z1300 Kawasaki with Suzuki be­ing rep­re­sented by five Katanas and a GT750 Water­bot­tle. Two CBX Hon­das, 3 Yamaha 650s and a 750, 3 very dif­fer­ent CB750 Hon­das as well as both a 350 and 400 Four and six trail bikes were also on show. It was a very long week­end for some but there was a lot of in­ter­est in the bikes with many re­count­ing their youth­ful ex­pe­ri­ences. The VJMC pro­vided the bulk of the dis­play but there were also bikes from the Z1 Own­ers and the Barossa Val­ley Clas­sic clubs as well as a small se­lec­tion from the Yamaha Retro Mo­tor­cy­cles floor stock. Sev­eral of the ex­hibitors took ad­van­tage of our passes to also see the car rac­ing and at­tend the con­certs with Cold Chisel on the Fri­day evening and Rob­bie Williams on Sun­day be­ing very well re­ceived.
