Our Regularity Trial in late May at the Drakensville Resort was an outstanding success despite
a smaller than usual entry.

Snow on the Berg and parts of the route, coupled with biting winds, made the going tough but
everyone expressed their satisfaction with the organization and camaraderie of the event.
Congratulations to Gavin Lumley who was the overall winner, and to the winners of the other

Special mention must be made of Spider Wilbraham and Chris Cutler who traveled from the
Cape to take part, and Ginty and Kate Melvill who braved some wild weather in their travels all
the way from Zambia. Many thanks to all of you, your attendance was much appreciated. John
and Barbara Allison also deserve special mention for completing the rally in their
Messerschmitt KR201, a vehicle more suited to a gentle trip to the local supermarket.

The success of the event was once again largely due to the dedication and hard work put in by
Ken and Barbara Sink and Ron and Haverley Dukes. We are indeed fortunate to have them as
club members.

I owe an apology to Grant Vacy-Lyle whom I did not adequately acknowledge at the prize
giving for his generosity in organizing the magnificent Fragram Tool prizes.

On an unpleasant note I regret to report that our club has suffered theft of magazines from our
stock which was to be put on sale at our “Plums in May”. There was a similar occurrence at the
same time last year. It is extremely disappointing and annoying to think that there may be
individuals among our membership who could resort to this type of dishonesty.

And on a desperate note we are appealing for volunteers to take over the organization of our
rally from Ken and Barbara Sink. After 21 years they deserve a break and would like to
participate as entrants in future rallies. Ken and Barbara have more than earned that right. Ken
would fully train whoever is prepared to do the job and provide backup assistance but we need
an early response because planning starts many months prior to the event. Don‟t let our Rally

We welcome Ken Jennings and Thomas Schubert who were successful at Ballot on 3.6.2006.
Enjoy the club guys.
Wednesday morning saw us setting off nice and early on our way to the rally. The weather
when we left Durban was not the greatest and slowly the sky grew greyer and darker, and the
temperature got lower and lower. A pit stop at Estcourt confirmed that Wimpy is still your
friend. Bacon and eggs and mega coffee certainly raised our spirits and, despite the odd drops
of rain, we were feeling good.
By the time we arrived at Drakensville it was pretty chilly, very cloudy and we couldn‟t even
see the mountains for mist and cloud. A braai was arranged at our house and when Big Ron
and Haverley Dukes arrived with a rather large bottle of Old Brown, things began to take on a
new light. A great braai was had by all and slowly the party unwound and everyone drifted off
to get an early night.
Next morning we awoke to see the mountains covered in snow. The Flat tank boys readied their
machines and after a leisurely breakfast they set out on their run, accompanied by a couple of
other bikers. We had a really pleasant although rather cool ride .By lunchtime we were back at
the resort and everyone agreed it had been great. After lunch the competitors started to arrive
and the rally atmosphere really began. After a quick competitors meeting it was off to supper
and the pub.
Friday we had an excellent run through Golden Gate and an equally good lunch at the
Fouriesburg Country Inn. The temperatures were a little on the low side for some riders but
nobody threw in the towel so it couldn‟t have been too bad.
Saturday warmed up quite nicely resulting in a great ride. The route as John Allison called it
was “A test of man and machine”. A nice change was that we returned to the resort for lunch.
Prize-giving went off well after an excellent dinner and the overall opinion was that this was
one of the best rallies ever.
Well done Ken and Barbara, Ron and Haverley, Alan, and the teams of marshals and all the
other people who contributed to the success of our 21st Natal Classic.

                             21st NATAL CLASSIC RALLY
                                (26 to 28 MAY 2006)
                             KR201 MESSERSCHMITT

The 21st running of this event was indeed a true classic with all the magical ingredients.
Majestic snow capped mountains, staggering mountain passes and some intriguing minor roads,
clever, but not tricky, route selection. Added to this, the bracing mountain air and the
challenging road surfaces, all the more tricky in the „Mighty Messerschmitt” with its 3
wheelbarrow sized wheels. We bestowed the title of “PHD”. (Pot Hole Dodger) upon it.
The willing little beast, to the astonishment of the other 45 venerable competitors, not only
conquered all that the demanding route pitted against it, but won its class in fine style, all the
more remarkable since we only completed its refurbishment the day before the rally.
My thanks to a brave wife/navigator, who sat in the tail gunner‟s seat. Well-done Barbara and
welcome back to rallying.
Those who had reservations about entering the event but came none-the-less were reassured by
the most efficient but yet relaxed manner of the revitalized team who obviously had taken care
of all the fine details and planning that goes into the making and preparation of a fine event,
from the moment we arrived at documentation to the final control. It went like „CLOCK
WORK‟. The Master Rally Clock, by the way, being a massive illuminated “DIGITAL L.E.D.
DISPLAY”, was totally accurate and foolproof.
I know I reflect the feelings of all who participated in this magnificent event. An event that will
silence those who may have been critical of previous events. The Natal Classic has achieved the
pinnacle of success. It is back on top where it belongs in the Calendar of the Classic and
Vintage Bike Calendar
My congratulations to the “Sinks and Dukes” and the whole team of Officials and Marshals
who deserve the highest accolade for a job well done and a rally well run. May our delight and
enjoyment serve as their reward.
Let us not forget they do it as they always have for the last 21 years. FOR US!
And the Love of our Sport.
I am reminded of the old Simon and Garfunkel song.
“Still crazy after all these Years”.
Aren‟t we all?
                                 DO NOT MISS IT NEXT YEAR!!!
                                        John and Barbara Allison
Dear Ken
How time flies – a week ago we were hard at work counting white lines in the Winterton area!
Of course Chris Cutler and I had plenty of time to reflect on the rally on our homeward journey
and we join in expressing our thanks and appreciation to you and Barbara, Ron and Hav and all
your team members for a well run and most enjoyable event.
What a pity you could not arrange Friday‟s wind for another day! However, I have no doubt it
added another dimension to the event in testing the skill of riders. The Fouriesburg legs were
great. We found your Saturday after lunch sojourn into the Berg an interesting and challenging
one with the absence of white lines, but would have welcomed a Marshal in the second bit.
However, we understand the difficulties of finding and leapfrogging these special people.
Interestingly, I have received a number of calls from fellows who chose not to take part and I
was pleased to give them a most positive report. Hopefully they will join us next year.
With kind regards.
Spider Wilbraham.

Actually it‟s all over and many of us can get
back to our normal routines.
Those members who helped prepare the
venue, put bikes on display or did guard
duty can give themselves a pat on the back
for a job well done,
Barbara can have a holiday in Spain at the
club‟s expense …… just kidding, but once
again she has done an outstanding job in
putting the whole show together.
If you are not at the sharp end you just can‟t
                                                 appreciate how much work she does to ensure
                                                 the success of the event.

                                                 Apart from Barbara there are a few others who
                                                 deserve mention.

Group Riding
Motorcycling is primarily a solo activity, but for many, riding as a group -- whether with
friends on a Sunday morning ride or with an organized motorcycle rally -- is the epitome of the
motorcycling experience. Here are some tips to help ensure a fun and safe group ride:
Arrive prepared. Arrive on time with a full gas tank.
Hold a riders' meeting. Discuss things like the route, rest and fuel stops, and hand signals.
Assign a lead and sweep (tail) rider. Both should be experienced riders who are well-versed in
group riding procedures. The leader should assess everyone's riding skills and the group's riding
Keep the group to a manageable size, ideally five to seven riders. If necessary, break the group
into smaller sub-groups, each with a lead and sweep rider.
Ride prepared. At least one rider in each group should pack a cell phone, first-aid kit, and full
tool kit, so the group is prepared for any problem that they might encounter.
Ride in formation. The staggered riding formation (see diagram below) allows a proper space
cushion between motorcycles so that each rider has enough time and space to maneuver and to
react to hazards. The leader rides in the right third of the lane, while the next rider stays at least
one second behind in the right third of the lane; the rest of the group follows the same pattern.
A single file formation is preferred on a curvy road, under conditions of poor visibility or poor
road surfaces, entering/leaving highways, or other situations where an increased space cushion
or maneuvering room is needed.
Avoid side-by-side formations, as they reduce the space cushion. If you suddenly needed to
swerve to avoid a hazard, you would not have room to do so. You don't want handlebars to get
Periodically check the riders following in your rear view mirror: If you see a rider falling
behind, slow down so they may catch up. If all the riders in the group use this technique, the
group should be able to maintain a fairly steady speed without pressure to ride too fast to catch
If you're separated from the group, don't panic. Your group should have a pre-planned
procedure in place to regroup, don't ride beyond your skills to catch up.
For mechanical or medical problems, use a cell phone to call for assistance as the situation

WORK PARTY 19 August at 09h00.
A work party will take place at 09h00 on 19.8.2006 to remove and sort all the items that are
stored in the Clubhouse ceiling.
Your help would be appreciated.
                                                                                July 2006 Newsletter
The latest sales figures for June are that 62,701 new cars and trucks were sold in South Africa.
This means that 2090 new vehicles will have taken to the roads every day during that month
alone. The worst part is that not all the drivers have legitimate licences. This is because the wait
for an appointment for learners is about 6 months and the same for the driving test, unless of
course a reasonable amount of cash changes hands. R2, 500 apparently can buy you the whole
lot as a package deal in a matter of days.
What has this to do with the old car movement, one may well ask. The answer is: safety of our
cars as well as ourselves. The modern driver does not take much notice of red robots, stop signs
or solid white lines. Modern cars have bright indicator lights front and back. Amber globes
have taken the place of amber glass or plastic in the lights in many cases.
Looking at the cars on the Milligan I was surprised to see how few actually had separate
indicators front or rear. The U.S. cars from the late 40‟s had indicators, but these were part of
the tail lights or front parking lights, and flashed red or white, which is not a satisfactory
situation. Also the stop light goes out when that side is flashing. The front lights could be made
a little safer if amber globes were used, but the rear really needs two new wires and separate
lights to make them more visible. Ideally new indicator lamps front and rear would be the
Sommige van die ouer motors het geen flikker ligte nie, en net een rooi agter lig. Ek weet ons
gebruik nie die motors in die aand, maar op die Milligan was daar een oggend baie mis, en
onvoldoende ligte maak dit „n onveilige rit.
Anders gestel, „n stel ligte, skakelaar en flikker sal nie meer as R300 kos nie. Wat se herstel kan
jy op enige voertuig vir daardie geld doen?
Ons is nog steeds gelukkig om ons motors op publieke paaie te mag gebruik. Laat ons nie die
noodlot tart sodat die owerhede ons voorreg wegneem, omdat ons motors nie basiese
veiligheids aspeckte soos ligte, het nie.
„n Paar jaar tevore het John Meeks voorgestel dat alle ou motors „n flicker lig in die agter
venster moet he. Ek dink hy het voorgestel die tipe lig wat gebruik word deur fiets ryers, wat
beskikbaar is vir „n minimale koste. Op daardie stadium het dit verkeerd geklink, maar in
retrospek sou dit van groot hulp gewees het in die Kaapse mis.
6th August 2006 is the old favourite, the POMC Cars in the Park, this time at a new venue,
Swartkops Raceway.
The Vaal Old Wheels Club is hosting a 3 day event on 1st, 2nd and 3rd September 2006 on the
banks of the Vaal River in Vanderbijlpark. This is a fun outing for the whole family. This is a
very ambitious endeavor. For most of us, organising a one day event is quite enough. Let‟s give
them every support.
October 2007 is the date for the Riley Rendezvous. Any Riley owners interested can get more
details from Michael Davies on or fax 031-705 4778.
The SAVVA AGM is being held on the 16th September 2006. If you are unhappy with
anything, now is the time to tell your club delegate so that the matter can be raised on the day.
Remember that the Piston Ring swop meet is on the next day, 17th September 2006.
Best regards and happy motoring from the Kingdom of the Zulu.
I have been busy for sometime restoring a 1938 BSA Empire Star 500cc OHV motorcycle.
Possibly because it is not eligible for the D.J. it does not evince much interest in Durban (or
South Africa.) This is puzzling because it is quite an historic machine.
A tuned up version was ridden at Brooklands by Wal Handley who was a top class racer in his
day. Although he had retired, he was enticed out of retirement for this one ride, and lapped
Brooklands at over 100 mph. In those days anyone lapping at over 100 mph was awarded the
Brooklands Gold Star. The BSA management was so impressed with this that the following
year the BSA Gold Star was introduced. Thus was the Gold Star born. Even today the family
resemblance of BSA‟s is very evident.

This is a case of ''write & be damned'', but the one incident in my motor cycling career that I
shall always remember even when all others are fading from my progressively befuddled brain,
will be one going back to 1962, when I was an apprentice fitter in the then, Royal Rhodesian
Air Force, stationed in Salisbury. I had a 1952, sprung hub, Triumph speed twin, my first form
of motorised transport ever, bought with savings, from an ex school chum in Bulawayo. Not an
ideal bike for some of the rather rough secondary ''strip'' roads at that time, being ''sprung'' hub,
but none the less, my P& Joy!!

Come one Friday with the rare chance of a week end off duty, my room mate Ken, also ex
Bulawayo, & I decided to take a trip there & ''check it out'' as they say today. How to get there?
On the boney of course. Oh, the exuberance of youth. So we set off, two up, minimum kit, at
about dusk.

Salisbury to Bulawayo was about 400 kms. & I well remember there were numerous bad, dusty
detours to contend with & as it would be, just to add to the fun, it was ''blerry cold‟‟. Well, the
corrugations & notorious Triumph vibrations put paid to the headlight before we‟d got very far.
What to do? No options now. We pressed on in the pitch dark, hoping ''night vision'' would
enable us to progress. It is amazing how ones eyes do adapt in the dark, but there are limitations
as we were to find out. Of course the odd car approaching ruins it all for a while.

Getting on near to Bulawayo now, early hours of the morning, frozen stiff, & just wanting to
get this hell over with, we were boring along when we passed very, VERY close to several grey
shapes in the middle of the road. What were those? We had miraculously just missed hitting
some donkeys!!

The memory of that ride still haunts me, especially the thought of how close I came to killing
the both of us. Needless to say I've never liked riding at night since, & should the headlamp
clock out, I'll walk thanks very much!!

LIBRARY – Dave Stone
Thanks to all who have donated books & magazines for the library recently. They are much
appreciated, & will expand our '' browsers'' section with some good reading. The w/shop
manuals have been included in the marques section for loan to aspiring restorers.
There are bundles of older, but good quality reading M/C magazines for sale at R20 bundle. See
me for details.
