Default How many of you victorian's ride old bikes? Pre 1980's

Cheers king

G'day all. First post here.

'73 sporty in Melbourne here Kingy. Been off the road for awhile, but she still runs well. Front end needs a refurbish, some minor wiring for blinkers and she'll be right to go.

Can anyone recommend a bike mechanic with integrity? lol. I know they're out there. HD Development seem to have a good attitude when i've bought oil from them over the years.

Anyway, back to the topic. Another old sporty rider here!

Best wishes, Greg
