VJMC's Three Months at the Museum
March to May, 2017


In 2016, the VJMC was invited to set up a VJMC Club Display at the National Motor Museum at Birdwood SA. A great display was organised by Geoff Ellis, with funding from the National Committee. It was in a prominent position within the museum for a fixed term of 3 months. 

The display contained examples of a good cross section of bikes from VJMC South Australian members.  All of the main four brands were represented as well as the central display showing the oldest Yamaha ‘over the counter’ 250 racer in the country alongside the last one to be sold.
