Hi, I often read your site and have a request. 
I am the nephew of the late (and GREAT) Speedway motor cycle developer/builder/tuner/team owner CHARLIE OGDEN. 
I am in my 60's, and Uncle Charlie never allowed me to ride bikes, as he (and Aunty Ivy) said it was too dangerous, (especially after he lost Gordon Guasco). 
However, I am after a CHARLIE OGDEN bike now as a family keepsake/memorial of our late uncle. 
I have contacted a few of his old riders with little success. 
Can you help me track down an OGDEN bike, it will be treasured, and still be displayed or ridden at vintage events as required.  
Our family has some Ogden memorabilia, but an actual example of his work would be treasured. 
We want to preserve for eternity this history of Australian Speedway. 
Hope you can help....Best regards, Neil Freeland.

We are trying to find out the history of this car and wonder if any of your members can help us-------The car was purchased by John Walsh of Adelaide around 1982---it had its first race in Adelaide on Boxing Day evening 1983 driven by Jeff Ellison. He rode a wheel and completely destroyed the car---he had it painted yellow number 20--the car was purchased by Don Hunt(present owner) in 1984 in pieces----the car had a removable top left hand chassis bar that suggests it had a vw motor at some time--the car came to Adelaide and raced the one and only time(prior to demolition) with a 13B rotary motor---any help greatly appreciated--- cheers Dave Bissell
