In the hills

Old Bike Australasia - - OUT’N’ABOUT -

Robin Lewis has been out and about in the Ade­laide Hills and sends these shots of a cou­ple of in­ter­est­ing lo­cals: “Roy is a young lo­cal res­i­dent who made do with what he had to cre­ate this neat lit­tle 175 Honda Café Racer from a crashed bike. Roy had a spare 200 Honda fuel tank which was painted in a fa­mil­iar scheme, ex­tend­ing to the hand-formed fi­bre­glass tail piece. The guards and foot con­trols are fab­ri­cated, and the up­swept ex­haust is from a CL175. The Aberdale is a quaint lit­tle ma­chine made in 1949 and pow­ered by a 98cc Vil­liers en­gine. It is fre­quently rid­den around the Ade­laide Hills villages.”
