Found this old photo. I think it is Kork Ballington at the Roy Hesketh circuit outside Durban on a 500 Kawasaki triple. Epic picture. Check out the leathers and crash helmet!
Cheers

Quite possibly, looks like the right colour although that bike has been brought back to stock now and is his 'get to work' bike, I had a bit of fun with it a few years back....

What do you reckon Derek?

Yip. Hugh has confirmed that it is him on his scooter - same one as he has here in Brissie.

He lamented losing that tailpiece.......

Eric i still have fond memories sitting on the hill at Amaroo Park N.S.W. when production racing was a joy to watch.

I'm hearing you Nick, a bygone era apart from the odd special race meeting here and there.

Oh yes, I still remember watching Hailwood and Scaysbrook riding that Ducati, beautiful to watch it was.
