John McGrath - A Roll Down Memory Lane

  • Ruth Faulkner Public Library (map)

Long term Belmont resident John McGrath was a successful road and track rider from the 1940’s to the 1960’s. Recently two club members, Malcolm Bell and Robert Frith, have restored a pair of John’s original track bikes, a Bobby Jones built frame which John brought to WA when he moved from Sydney, and a locally made Swansea.

The City of Belmont is hosting an evening celebrating John’s achievements. We’ll discuss the conservation and restoration of the bikes and how the Burra Charter can influence that process.

Parking will be available for this event in the City of Belmont staff carpark (after 5pm only). The staff carpark is accessible via Robinson Avenue off Wright Street.

This is a free event however bookings are required as places are limited - book here.
