BSA in­va­sion

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

The 55th In­ter­na­tional BSA Rally is shap­ing up to be a real cracker with many over­seas and lo­cal en­tries al­ready re­ceived, re­ports Doug Fraser. The prom­ise of many great rides, won­der­ful scenery, and, of course, out­stand­ing com­pany, will all be part of a very mem­o­rable week. It’s been 17 years since the last and only In­ter­na­tional Rally was held in Aus­tralia and who knows when the next will be? So come along or you may miss out! The rally starts on Fri­day 9th Novem­ber at Halls Gap in the Grampians in Western Vic­to­ria and runs for a week. For us, 2018 rep­re­sents the sev­en­ti­eth anniversar­y of the Ban­tam and the fifti­eth anniversar­y of the world’s first mod­ern su­per-bike: the Triple. And so, to fea­ture this, we are hop­ing to have the largest dis­play of Rob North Rocket Threes in the South­ern Hemi­sphere. Also ne­go­ti­a­tions are un­der­way to ob­tain, for dis­play, the 1975 Isle of Man 500cc pro­duc­tion class win­ning Mead and Tomkin­son B50, as rid­den by Phil Gurner and bought here to Aus­tralia in 1977 by Jeff and Lor­raine Gooch. These bikes, plus many oth­ers, should be enough to make any BSA en­thu­si­ast ex­cited! For more in­for­ma­tion go to: bsa.asn.au/html/ events/in­ter/in­dex.html

Cel­e­brate the Ban­tam at the In­ter­na­tional BSA Rally!
