Kangaroo Tour '97
Day 1 - Arrive at Starklite Cycle to unload our bikes which we packed up over 30 days ago to make the trip via boat.
|12 Motorcycles in their crates awaiting our arrival to use the fork lift to remove
them, and pray they are undamaged.
Opps, did we commit a sin shipping our Indians in used Harley Davidson Shipping crates ?
|Luckily these crates come apart pretty easy !|
|Wait a second, it looks like an Indian, but what type of an Indian motor is that ?
It's a VINDIAN !!
Peter Arrundel working on his VINDIAN. The day before he crated the bike for shipment he bent the kicker shaft, so now it must be replaced.
|Can you beleive all this Australians hard at work, and no beer can be seen in these
Did they hide the cans behind the camera lens ?
|How did a Triumph make it in this batch of Indians ?
Well I guess one oddball out of 12 aint' bad !
|What is that in this mechanics hand ?
It's the Australian Universal Indian Tool Wrench !
His HAMMER !
And if this wrench doesnt fit, you should see the bigger one !
Stay tuned for more info as the trip proceeds !
Luckily none of the bikes suffered any damage during their thousands of miles of travels to the states ! And they all run perfect !
Stay tuned !
