2015 Scrapheap Adventure Ride - Urana - 25 - 27 September

It is with great excitemnt we can announe we are off and running with Scrapheap 6

This year the Scrapheap Adventure Ride travels to Urana!

The Scrapheap Adventure Ride is a call to all motorcycle collectors and madcap enthusiasts from around the country to join an extraordinary Aussie adventure and raise much needed funds for kids with Down syndrome.

The challenge for hardcore scrappers is to buy a bike for no more than $1000 and fix it up for an adventure ride through the outback. All motorcyclists are welcome and the ride usually gets a great turnout of classic bikes and sidecar rigs as well.
Over the last four years, the ride has raised in excess of $300,000 for Down Syndrome NSW.

New web site and we are ready for registrations.

www.scrapheapadventureride.com.au

This is the thread with all the details and a place to talk about your bike builds, and groups.

We have much planned this year including some great rides loops on the Saturday and great Dinner on the Saturday night.

Keep checking back for updates

Yep, we'd love to ride with the Skunkworks Team, would be quite an honour, as long as we've got a trailer between us for a dead honda or two

Have had some enquiry from museums wanting one for their collections. They say they are now difficult to find.

I guess any purchased now will not qualify as a scrapper because they have become to expensive, even for a wreck.

I suppose the old DR250's will be the next to take a price hike.

Can I interest you in another future collectable Joe?
Hey col I'm afraid to tell you mate but the dr250 will never grace my shed as i have too many other "collectibles" in there already. And those gl175s are hard to come by I wish I could find another one.
