    Any reason given why it was cancelled??

    I'm in the process of giving a PE175T a good overhaul and would liked to have made it down, but wasn't going to be able to make it. So I was setting sights on next year...

    Cheers

    Lack of entries meant the promoter was going to take a hit, which he wasnt prepared to do, so made a financial decision to bail out. Fair enough, it is a business.

    TYCON eh...? :wink: Wonderful gear... made in Cessnock - home to Phil Lovett and the original birthplace of the A4DE (and later Australia's first hosting of the ISDE in 1992)... thanks greatly to the tireless work of John Hall.

    I look like an 80's porn star ( on the left ). I think I was the first to use pink. It was the start of the 1985 NSW Enduro season. Crystal Ball Enduro February and I remember it was effing hot.

    Don't know what happened since but I certainly don't look that svelte!!

    I believe Mick ( who I sold items to ) has given them to his daughter to wear in competition.

    Mick, if you ever get on for a read so pics would be most appreciated.

    Troy,
    I will dig out some pics of my white / pink YZ250L that I rode at Finke in 1985 :D
