So sad to hear of the passing of Billy on 5th April. Prior to competing in the sport myself, I always loved to see Billy racing whether it be at the TT (he was entered from 1960 to 1974 – some record !!) or at the Irish national meetings. He obviously held Dunboyne among his favourites – he frequently attended the Spirit Of Dunboyne revival events in recent years riding his beautiful Matchless G50. We will greatly miss him – a great Irish racer !
Vrt what’s required
Hi all ,been a few years since I brought a bike in from uk,just bought a 1986 Yamaha 750 ,privately,teds trucking picking it up ,what paperwork do I need to bring to get it registered,v5 ,proof of purchase ,date entered country, anything else,thanks
Stafford..anyone else go..??
Good show…not great…lot of sellers missing…replaced by junk antiques…is this the future….:woots:
Got a good laugh at Collie trying to get out early and the security lad refusing to let him out the main gate…all he was short of saying was..”is this cause i’m black…”…bring better stuff next time too..knob head….
Didn’t make it to Dunboyne this year due to late change of dates – had booked flights for “normal” end of September date.
First of all, did it happen ??? (Hope so !!)
Assuming it did, how did it go ? Any pics available ?
1960’s matchless twin
Hi, just bought a basket case 1960’s matchless twin ,minus the front frame section,
Has anyone out there got a front section or the complete frame for sale,
I know it’s a long shot,but who knows?
It’s a duplex frame (twin down tubes) that I’m after 1960 -’63.
Another cool find GS1100E
So following on from finding the nice GS1000
I stumbled across this big Suzuki GS1100 and snagged it as ya do.
pulled it outta long term storage
very clean and runs sweet as a nut after
the usual carb clean and oil change.
I’ve always prefered these to the big kwackers.
