Another Scout , but this one’s a 741

I have always had a fascination for Scouts mainly the reason I bought a 2015, but recently I was offered this one from an Association member that I had the opportunity to buy in about 2011, and I was thwarted at the last-minute. A phone call last Thursday clinched the deal, and I picked it up the following day and now all I have to do is clean contaminated fuel from the tanks and carby, but I did find the original owner wrote in pencil on the underside of the fuel tank it had 00001 miles on the speedo after a full resto in 1995 the little Scout now has 185 miles!

This Tuesday night is the General meeting at the Pascoe Vale Hotel same Bat time same Bat channel as they say.

recipe for getting cold as well

Last weekends Sunday ride to Antique Motorcycles was really well attended for a winters day, it was followed to our vice-presidents place Crazy Horse Moto for a equally nice BBQ and thanks to Mark & Sandy for the hospitality for cooking our meals and looking after us, a ride report below.

The New website BETA ,we need calendar photos and your subs

Another rally like the All Brit and at the same place in Newstead near Castlemaine, this should be popular hopefully not just a Harley meet. A beta version of the new suggested website is listed below and it should go “live” before Xmas. Also if you want your bike in our 2018 calendar please email me good quality photos of your Indian to me pronto as we are closing this off before the end of this month this is an exclusive only to members all Indian Calendar the same as the other two we have produced in the past, machines must be Indian and owned by current financial members, which means if you havent paid your subs your motorcycle is now illegal to ride you will get a $800 fine and 3 points off your licence, in short pay your outstanding subs immediately!

our new clubman of the year

Our Clubman of the year & well deserving of it Richard Onyon, for all the effort and help to our association he has given in the past and especially over the last 12 months, good on you Richard.

What a Chout!

Daryl Colt’s Chout is a combination of a twenties Scout and a 1200 forties Chief engine, he has just finished it today and brought it to me for a inspection to put it on Red Plates, what a absolute stunner it looks factory stock even the fuel tank (made by member Paul Taylor) is a piece of art wider than the original but you dont notice it, the same as the CNC bottom engine mounts they look like something that came from Springfield. Daryl it seems to go better and better on these projects, first the Prince and earlier in the year a 741, I wonder what he is planning next, he’s bringing it to the meeting tonight for all to see at the AGM, see you there

Richard”s got a new Indian

Richard Onyon your second in command club captain has given himself a treat and traded in his Scout for a 3,500 klm  Dark Horse looks like will see him out on the association BBQ next Sunday on it.

Next Tuesday you can make a difference

Every year each member has the choice to influence the direction of their association for the next twelve months, how, well by coming to the AGM and taking part in your right to vote for your new committee, there is no point being disappointed with what you think our direction should be it’s easily fixed just as the sign above says”We want you” on our team. If you feel you have something to offer for no financial gain or reward we have a position for you for at least 12 months, not a very long time as we give you December off to boot. The main thing though is for everybody to turn up for this most important meeting of the year, and we will even give you chocolate biscuits for supper!
