May 29 2005, 06:56 AM
Nice score with the red devil.
ps, Anyone here have a Black front tuff II with a metal hub?
May 29 2005, 07:14 AM
Any of you easterners thinkin of headin' west for a holiday? Be nice to catch up and say gday!
Anyway, I need a second hand (sh!tty as u like, just needs to be straight) Araya 7x in gold with a rear hub, but not important. I finally found a use for that RL340 I found on the verge.....its going to be the donar frame for my sidehack project.
(Pete from QLD - gromley, thats why I need the forks)
Just on that, will a set of TX1200's fit into that frame? I'm not sure if those RL340 Redlines are compatible with those forks. Anyone?
May 29 2005, 05:54 PM
QuicksilverBMX, I'll be sure to try and hook up if I'm ever over your side, thks for the invite. what length forks r u after?

May 30 2005, 04:06 AM
velocidad, I'm bidding on a 2nd hand pair of tange tx1200's and hoping they will fit in that RL340 frame, not sure on the length.
If anyone heads over, be sure to drop me a line, oh, and bring your O/Schooler so we can go for a ride! (either that or I can lend you a 20" ! )

Jun 1 2005, 03:46 AM
quote:Rectangle , I was a member of Mac's too , I raced from around '81 to '83.
.....I was a member of the "Mac Cycles" club and raced there bitd. I went past there a few years ago and noticed a cyclone fence around it and some factories in front of it, but it still looked the same.....
Do I know you? My name is Tony , I used to ride a Team Quicksilver . VBMXA # 154 and at club races I'd use # "?"
Mr. BMX sent me some pics of the old Boronia track recently , amazing it never got a factory built on it !
BTW , this thread is gettin out of hand !

'81-'83 was a bit after my time...I stopped racing somewhere around '81.
I'd have remembered a number at club meets like #?
Mac Cycles still exists as a shop, but it's on the other side of Boronia Rd and different owners. Do you remember the old owners Ray and Brenda? Geez they were good to us kids
I went to the track this week (after MR BMX mentioned it) and took a bunch of photos.
Take a look HERE
It was so weird walking around it...sort of like a movie where you went forward in time...kinda spooky.
Do you remember Phil Billinghurst?
Jun 1 2005, 06:17 AM
Yeah , Ray and Brenda were great , so supportive driving us kids to race meets and putting up with us hanging out in the shop on Friday nights , absolute legends !
Yeah , I remember Phil Billinghurst and his sis Judy , I used to hang out with Phil a bit at the track ....966 was his plate number wasn't it? Funny guy ! I've got a couple of pics of him racing actually. I recall he used to dominate 14 class at club meets.
Heres a pic of me at Parkdale bowl:
Thumbs , click on em!
What bike did you ride , I might still remember you ? I didn't join the club until around '81 , but I rode at the track from the beginning.
I just checked out your pics of the track. seeing it wet and muddy takes me right back to the day Stu Thomsen visited. Ahh good times they were
