A town like Alice

Old Bike Australasia - - OUT’N’ABOUT -

Fre­quent con­trib­u­tor Pe­ter Whitaker seeks in­for­ma­tion on the Alice Springs Mo­tor Cy­cle Tour­ing Club, which was formed around 1951. The pho­to­graph shows mem­bers of the new club in Hartly Street, with an amaz­ingly di­verse range of mo­tor­cy­cles, in­clud­ing what would have been a very new Se­ries C Vin­cent Comet on the left. The club’s motto was ‘There and back”, which is the same used to­day by the Finke Desert Race, which be­gan in 1976. The photo was taken by Mary­lyn Ni­chols, and the of­fice bear­ers of the orig­i­nal club were Gor­don Ni­chols (pres­i­dent), and Mrs V. Ni­chols (sec­re­tary), Len Tuit (pa­tron), Ray Duffield (cap­tain), B. Davis (trea­surer) and L.Knopel (sports sec­re­tary). If you can pro­vide fur­ther in­for­ma­tion or pho­tos of the club, Pe­ter can be con­tacted at pe­dron­tweed@hot­mail.com
