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!

This months ride report to Point Cook

Pete Kime’s ride report to Point Cook earlier this month is very good as usual, no the bike above with a Coal Gas Diffuser fitted is from WW11 when petrol was severely rationed never attended but sure would be a good talking point

Zorro’s is closing but Crazy Horse Moto continues

Hi everyone
its with some sadness we have taken the decision to shut the Zorro’s clothing business, based at our Governor rd site in Mordialloc Victoria. Sandy and I have had many great experiences throughout the years since we started Zorro’s and we have met and made many friends from amongst the motorcycle fraternity, both here and overseas. We both wanted to say thank you for your support. The shop will close on the last day of July 2018.

On a more positive note our Crazyhorse Indian business is very busy and we will be continuing to supply replica parts for Antique Indians and to develop our Australian & export business for manufacturing/supply of parts, components and accessories for both Antique and the newer Polaris Indians.

The shop has to be emptied and to that end everything has to go. We are making these offers:
On the stock from the shop on Fridays and Saturdays only:
All our leather goods ie jackets, vests etc will be sold first come, first served at retail less 50% discount. No returns.
All our accessories will be sold at retail less 30%. No returns.
I am happy to despatch anywhere in Australia subject to our normal postage terms, but there will be no returns under any circumstances.

There will be no discount on old Indian motorcycles or parts or the lines that we will continue to retail online.
once again thank you for your support.
Mark & Sandy
Crazyhorse Moto (Pacific)

This picture makes me all warm inside

Don’t those Harley idiots know 64% of their bike is made overseas already, if they bought a Indian it’s around 36% non-American content, these snowflakes are all upset that Harley is thinking about producing in India or Thailand. After Regan bailed them out in the eighties for close to a billion $ now their all sookey-poo, because nobody’s buying their product and they want to pack up, I hope Trump goes through with the threats an taxes them to death.


Think twice before you buy that Chief or your parts from overseas

The article below will worry  quite a few people, that have thought about importing a vehicle from overseas, that light in the tunnel is quickly coming to a end what with all the asbestos problems that Border Force are now applying, The other problems are if you say take a bike to a International Rally in USA or Europe the is a chance even know you exported it that it may not be able to come back here ever so it’s in limbo, plus the government may get your previously or currently registered vehicle in Aussie, fully inspected at your cost before allowing its return! Click on the links below

And today the Melbourne City Council is thinking of banning parking on footpaths, its more and more difficult to just be treated like bicycle riders. By the way that Matchless/Indian (pictured) is a Springfield Chief as it was sold by Indian Sales in the late fifties

Consequences for non-compliance for exporting into Australia 

The compliance treatments we use vary according to the type of behaviour you exhibit. We group business behaviours into categories and apply an appropriate approach to each of those categories.
If you choose not to comply with the law, the Commissioner of Taxation can take actions including:

  • registering you for GST
  • imposing an additional 75% administrative penalty, which then becomes legally payable
  • intercepting funds from Australia that are destined for you
  • registering the debt in a court in your country
  • requesting the taxation authority in your country to recover the debt on our behalf

Australia is the first jurisdiction to move to adopt a vendor-platform collection model and many jurisdictions are poised to follow suit (the European Union, Switzerland and New Zealand have all announced similar reforms).
