Blow Your Own


Old Bike Australasia - - CONTENTS -

I would like to know if any read­ers re­mem­ber the two Tri­umph out­fits that were rac­ing at the Mount Ginn cir­cuit in ACT. One of the pas­sen­gers must have had some bars down low, be­cause he would stand on his head with his whole body on the in­side of the bike on the right hand cor­ner. His legs would be tucked up about level with the rider’s waist and his head only about 9 inches above the ground. They would be given 20-25 yards hand­i­cap and could make up enough ground for a good tight fin­ish on this right han­der. The en­closed photo was taken at Mor­ris Park, Dubbo in the ‘six­ties of me on my B33 BSA en­gine in a Feath­erbed frame. My pas­sen­ger used a kapok in­ner fly­ing suit. It wouldn’t be al­lowed these days. Bruce Sn­od­grass U907 Orana Gar­dens Es­tate Corona­tion Drive, Dubbo NSW 2830
