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?
velocidad

quote:
.....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.....

Rectangle , I was a member of Mac's too , I raced from around '81 to '83.

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 !

G'day Tony,
'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?

Phil
spinner
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
