    Thanks for starting this spanner, I saw the indian roadmaster at the nec show and thought it was a beauty, it looked a quality finish and I normally dislike all those cruiser type bikes.

    There was a 1928 indian 750 I think at the b and b we stayed at at this years dragon rally, the quality and simplicity of build was impressive.

    http://www.indianmotorcycle.co.uk/indian-roadmaster If that fell over you'd have to call in McNallys to lift it.
    Used do the Dragon every year whatever the weather and had some fairly rough crossings to Holyhead, no B&B just camp on the site and drink enough:drunk:

    Served my time in the campsite too and many rough journeys too when protective clothing was poor compared to what is available now

    Hi nick as tramore would not normally attract students from wexford I am guessing you spent your younger years in the tramore catchment area, dungarvan would be a fairly vibrant town both economically and entertainment wise.

    Hi john deere man davits might be the club you are thinking of as it was owned by mick burke, it has been closed for a while now but the rumour is that a carrick on suir farmer has bought it and intends to reopen it. The other club trades by the name creation and is very popular
