    The sidecar has a 15" wheel off I think the 1200C so the original 17" is sitting in the shed. I'd like to keep it but as said you are welcome to borrow it. No tyre on it though.

    Incidentally, the two on fleabay are $550 each, but you might score a tyre.

    Took the scrappers out today, moi, Scrapper Steve and Andrew on his CB400 to see if any bits fell off in the dirt, nothing did and it behaved well. Very fíng slippery out there after all the rain so scrappers came home dirty, as you do! A great day! 180kms

    Announcement

    Scrapheap 2020 Parked for now

    Hello Scrappers,

    It is with sadness I have to advise that we have had to postpone Scrapheap Adventure Ride 2020. This is a decision taken in consultation with the Scrapheap Committee, Gulargambone Community, Down Syndrome Australia and our sponsors. In consideration of the Covid-19 Government guidelines and limits placed on public gatherings.

    Good news is we are now planning on holding the event in 19-21 March 2021. This will coincide with World Down Syndrome Day.

    We will continue to update you as we have more details.

    Scrapheap 2020 ½

    I will be reaching out to all our registered participants and will discuss the option of refunding of registrations fees, or if you are happy to leave the registration in place for March.

    Thank you for your understanding in this difficult time.
