VJMC at the Adelaide Supercars
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.
