The Broadford Bike Bonanza is a multi discipline event for pre 1985 bikes held over Easter at the Broadford motorcycle complex, Australia. Each year the road circuit has a 'theme' which for this year was the Castrol 6 Hour event. The Castrol 6 Hour was a six hour race for production bikes (with very few modifications allowed to the bikes).

One of the aims of the event is to get the old bikes, both road and race, out of the shed and onto the track. With less rules, regulations and costs than the traditional track day, the result is the everyday rider can take his machine and do some laps in a friendly and non competative environment. To this extent there are bikes which are seldom seen except at shows or displays circulating with everyday dungas.

Some noteable bikes that have been at the meet are a Britten, the Mike Hailwood & Jim Scaysbrook 750 SS Ducati that Mike rode as part of his return to racing (pre his Isle of Man win on a Ducati) along with some notable Australian championship winning bikes.

Each year I attend with camera in hand and take some pics of the bikes that are on the track, in the car park and in the pits.

I hope you enjoy them.

These are some amazing photos Russ. You've posted a couple of my friends bikes that I was there with so I'm sure they'll be happy to see them too. I know I don't exactly make the pre '85 category but I was at least hoping the F3 would have made a feature ;) Fantastic to meet you and cheers for the offer of advice and help, greatly appreciated.

Will
