Lake Gairdner and Bluebird

Post by harky » Fri Mar 29, 2013 1:53 pm

Just finished reading "Hold On" by Stan Didden.
He won many world titles as a sidecar "passenger" ---- Co rider , Swinger , in the post war period .
He came to Oz as a rep with Dunlop to be part of The Campbell effort
He mentions that Lake Gairdner was considered ---- first time I Had seen that
Good read about the 50s , BSA & Norton outfits
was a Kindle thing for not much $s
if I had a hard copy I could lend it
down side to electronic books I guess
worth a look @ anyway
DLRA #643
so far 120mph for$2000---imagine how fast I can go for $20,000
