diddnt ever go there, but it looked like it was a fast track, i went to frankston track couple of years ago, and the jumps are huge
where in mornington was it?
cheers
COASTY
I found a lot of BMX Torque and Pancake mags with some cool pics. I'll put them up when I get a minute.
Wrectangle
Morninton looked like a great track...a bit too far for me to pedal so I never made it there.
I think I've got some Pancake mags buried around here somewhere...if the missus hasn't thrown them out
crossriderozzy
the track was just off the main hwy,It was a very fast track with a steep hill,I think it was closed because the locals were complaining about the noise of the gate dropping!

I was just thinking the other day we should have an Aussie version of Rockford. Maybe not as big but I think it would be cool. I have rellies and friends in Melbourne , so that'd be a great idea.
QuicksilverBMX
Yeah an Aussie Rockford, we can hold the first annual one in Perth
serva
ROCKLEA-FORD.....BRISVEGAS! LOL
Kittengirl
Hey,
Were any of you in the first race in Victoria?
Held at a park in Springvale, and Pat Dillion's dad had built the ramps??
There were only about 12 racers ??

I think the weather on the Gold Coast is acceptable. We have some great parks on the beaches with cycle paths and lots of room.
redlineoz
sounds like a good idea trev, reece cant wait for the pics
Pete Porker
Fatnold - if i'd seen your post earlier i would have said - 'sober up and get to rockford!' but yes - give me that tyre!!!

Me and Trev have been talking about 'the gathering' for awhile, we figure if the first one works that we should move it around every year - ie. the one after Melbourne will be in Sydney ect, but probably limited to the east coast (sorry reece!) but who knows after a few years ?

PS- scored an E.T. Kuwahara this weekend!
redlineoz
cant wait, pete,and trev and the road trips , but seriously, i never been involved in any of this stuff, it will be like being 15 again,
reece i look forward to the wa road trip.....
COASTY
Hey , I've never been to WA. That'd be cool. I don't care where it is! Lets do it!
QuicksilverBMX
awww cmon Pete, tell me u never played in Perth!

If not give me plenty of notice so I can save for the big event! I hope it gets lots of patronidge!
Mr.BMX
There's no Rockford in Oz.....

Ok, lets get serious about it, stop calling it "rockford in Oz" and give it our own original AUSIE name.

Lets see, it could be :
OOZ - Oldschool OZ
BOOZ - Bicycle Oldschool OZ
CROOZ - Collectors & Riders of Oldschool OZ
BMXOZFEST
Ozschool BMX Show

and these are just quick ideas as i type it right now, if we sit'n'think a little deeper i'm sure we can all contribute to forming a name, place and whatever else we'd need to include in the show.

As i said a while ago, we're not as big as the yanks, and each state has limited people, and even less people would travel due to $$$ etc.
I did suggest the Oz show would be run SIMULTANEOUSLY in each state on the same weekend, and all pics/videos would be sent to a central site for all of us to check out.

I know a 'few' of you will travel, but i can't imagine the bummer feeling you'll get when 3 of you are in a state where nobody else showed up ;-)

Mr.BMX.
Mr.BMX
ROOZ - Retro Oldschool OZ
(as in kangarooz, how Aussie is that?)

Mr.BMX
QuicksilverBMX
The only thing about the simultanious thing is that there is not many people here (Perth) into OS bmx. there is another 2 on the board from perth but thats about it. I'm sure we could get a crowd, no worries there, but I doubt there would be many displays,stalls etc.
An annual show would be the go, and common sense would suggest it be in Adelaide for the central thing.
But then again, who here actually lives in SA? I think WA has more representation! Anyway, I would be prepared to travel but with plenty of notice. It would take a lot of organisation to get it off the ground.
ozbmxer
I will be back in SA later this year, from Sept through to Feb of '06. Just in case it is decided that would be the best place perhaps.

Matt
serva
Hey Matt! which part of adelaide are you from? I grew up near seacliff and later in colonel light gardens. Now i'm a queenslander , which is cool because its winter
PaulK
As of next Monday, you can add me to the WA count.
QuicksilverBMX
Cool! What area will you be living in PaulK?
Pete Porker
Well guys the idea was for a get together, a 'gathering' to meet each other, so the idea of simultanious ones in each state is not much more than what we're doing now. If ya don't want to or can't travel, then maybe the next one might be closer, that was the idea.
prosight
i think the 1st one should be in the state with the most people and start from there...
which would be melb...hehehe
prosight
there is 15+ people in melb..as for me traveling with 5+ bikes it would be hard....
PaulK
Hi QuicksilverBMX, I'll be somewhere in Perth (Northern Surburbs - not finalised yet)
COASTY
Hi everyone, I scored this of the bay the other day and I'm at a loss as to what to make with it. It's off to the powdercoaters today. But what colour! Oh the choices. Can some one please give me a confirmation on the model? I'm thinking 280 air or something similar. There aren't a lot of pics around of Torkers. I have a GT Pro Performer F/F as well that should arrive soon. I have black tuffs for both frames, so if that helps.....and then theres the RL440!
QuicksilverBMX
If its a torker, black for me, i love black torkers!
(i'm not being biased either!)
AndyDiamond
If it's a Torker 280 Air Freestyler (it's obviously a freestyler) then they came in light blue and light purple.

I have some ads of this I can scan and post.
velocidad
Hi CoastVL, here is a pic of a 360 model, looks very much like yours: lo-res and hi-res
and here is an old ad i pinched from here (i think ) torker ad
AndyDiamond
yep - that looks like it.

I got an ad with the pinky/purple one and some guy doing trix outside a nightclub.
Cheesy.
COASTY
hmmmm I don't know which one it is. It's either a 360 or 280. The frame stands on the rear are welded differently on both models from the look of the pics. I think I have a 280 going by the ads in that pic. The 360, the stands are weled to the dropouts and the 280 they are welded to the chainstays.
And yeah I like black too.
Cheers Guys
Glenn
