In 2018 we kicked off our sponsorship in motorcycle racing.  As it is a passion of ours, we have setup to sponsor our apprentice Cooper Francis in his bid to complete the Finke Desert Race in June 2018 as well as the Hattah in the following month.

On this page we will post some photos of the trip and hopefully bring home the rail spike for all the effort that has gone into the venture.

 

FINKE – 2018 QUEENS BIRTHDAY WEEKEND

Prologue – It was almost all over here
The home straight – Alice to Finke Day 1 Just before the last jump.
Nothing left in the tank – Not wanting to think about the return ride
Day 2 Warm Up –  Good nights sleep – Some food and its good to go back to Alice
Day 2 only 242 klms to go
The Spike – Its all just for this.

 

HATTAH ONE MONTH LATER – 2018

 

SIDECARS

THE LONG BIKE 

 

 

The number 45 as it raced before I bought it.  I managed to keep that number.

ZZR 1100 Kawasaki Machine – Still currently a work in progress.  Some serious HP in the motor but need to work on the handling.

This was a former Wayne Bradley Bike and it sure is a handful on a tight circuit.

AS IT SITS IN THE FACTORY AT THE MOMENT –  LOCATED IN BENDIGO LACKING A FEW BITS AND PIECES I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING THIS BEAST BACK WHERE SHE BELONGS.  TWO POWER PLANT OPTIONS I HAVE…..ZX900 OR CBR 600.  BOTH ARE STRONG MOTORS AND READY TO GO.
