Alan Hind Club Day - Members Only

At the time of his passing Alan had over 35 bikes and frames, as well as substantial collection of parts from the 40’s through to the 80’s. His sons will be keeping one bike each. They have approached the club to assist with the sale and dispersal of Alan’s collection.

This club day is a busy bee to help organise and prepare items from Alan’s collection for sale. Volunteering members will have the opportunity to buy bikes, frames and parts from Alan's collection. There will be a silent auction for more vauable items.

Check your club newsletter for the address.

Refreshments will be provided.
If any member has a portable barbecue they’d be happy to bring along for the day please let us know - info.wahcc@gmail.com

Perth Retro Bicycle Show

The Perth Retro Bicycle show is back. This event isn't organised by the WAHCC but it's right up our alley.

The show has been established to display your bicycle beauties of the past to the public. 

Target for the show is pre 2000(by frame year) road or track racing bicycles. Primary focus is metal frame bicycles (e.g. steel, titanium, aluminium, magnesium) however we will consider other materials (e.g. carbon, wood) if you have something of special interest .

We also wish to promote local (WA) craft and bicycle manufacturing capability so the show is open to local brands or frame builders who have produced road or track frames made of metal (in keeping with the retro theme) of any year build pre or post year 2000.

The event will be open to the public from 10am to 3.30pm. For those entering bicycles, set up is between 8.30 and 9.30 am. We ask that you commit to display to the public for the full duration hence break up time at 4pm to allow us to have a post-show thankyou and debrief after public close.

We are a not for profit organisation so just aim to cover costs for the event. To that end, we request a modest entry fee for displaying a bicycle of $10 per bike (limit of 5 bicycles per person/organisation). We can cater for display of approximately 80 bikes so be quick and register your ticket entry. Bring your own stands.

We will have a number of categories for judging on the day including:
- most popular bike in show as voted by participants and general public
- best presented bike (considering originality, condition, period build) as voted by the organisers
- best local product bike (considering quality, style, local content) as voted by the organisers.

For any specific quiries or further information on the show or criteria, please contact Velocollective at velocollective@hotmail.com.

March Meeting - Speaker Geoff Owen PLUS Auction!

Our first speaker for 2017, Geoff Owen is a cyclist and collector of cycling books. He's going to share some of the highlights of his collection and the stories therein.

There's also a club auction that will include a rough Thunderbot Dragster, a rough Humber, a Raleigh, a track frame as well as a Look jersey (medium) and a Tour de France pack. The track frame is sticker Flash but there is no other evidence that it actually is a Flash. It has a nasty hole in the down tube but the headset and forks may well be worth salvaging. Likewise the Humber is rough but has a Perry coaster hub in good condition and the steel rims are quite good. Bidding will be open to club members.
