    Some old photos

    Found these negatives scratching around in the bottom of a box. I can identify a couple, but there's a couple that need confirmation. They are rather scratched and tattered, but........
    Pukekohe 1975? I've got a photo of Ginger Molloy on the Aermacchi (Harley) and Crosby on his H1R at the same meeting.

    Rod Dunshea on the Egli Vincent ???? - Hugh Anderson ???
    - He felt that his whole life was some kind of dream and he sometimes wondered whose it was and whether they were enjoying it.

    Yep, Trevor Discombe top left. I don't think it's Eric Bone on the Kwakka, looks too small and not quite the right riding position. Looks more like Wayne List to me.

    The bottom two look like MacIntosh bikes .. Possibly Hugh Anderson on the MacIntosh Vincent .. dunno the other ..

    And the track looks more like an early Manfield or possibly Ruapun ... the road and powerlines in the last shot look too close to be Pukekohe ..

    Pukekohe - up by Railway corner (as it was called then). They put the fences up to stop people standing on the railway lines to watch the racing....free. Definitely Rod Dunshea on the Auckland Motorcycles Egli Vincent, I know Hugh Anderson was riding at that meeting - I'm sure it was on the Manx Norton.

    Eric Bone on the Kwaka, because the leathers look like the same ones he still wears today - on probably, the same bike - I must dig out some more recent photo's as a comparison. Although - I could be wrong (and often am.....)

    Yeah .. my sense of time is fucked .. the 70s are somewhere on the other side of that drug haze ... Fuck me - it was 37 years ago ... I spent most of that year working for the Railways in Palmerston North I think... (or maybe it was the ice cream factory, or Fletchers Steel ... )

    I remember piling into the sweeper at Baypark on my GSX1100. I could hear a bike behind me so was putting in a bit of effort and dragged the pipes most of the way around. On the exit Trevor blasted past on the TZ. That was a big lesson on exiting corners.

    That's because you made it a constant radius corner.
    The trick there was to blast in under brakes run wide & turn it around mid corner & straight line-ish the exit, so by the time you got to the straight you were going 10km faster than those that dragged the pipes all the way around.
    Robbe Dean taught me that.
    There were a few other tricks with what seemed a very simple track.
