The begining - 60 years on!
This is about a Motorcycle trip around Australia back in 1953 when my Cousin Vern Train and Mike Lockyer rode a 1953 500 Speed Twin Triumph and a 1953 500 BSA A7 to test for Renold Chain a .625 INS. Pitch Chain that was made in Benalla. The trial was conducted under the supervision of the Auto Cycle Union of Victoria, and the chains and the Bikes were successful in making a complete circuit of the Australian Continent covering a distance of 11,000 Miles. Conditions for much of the journey were extremely arduous with Roads often no more than rocks or loose sand.
