Motorcycles from Oz

OZtilbrook
Tilbrook

It is completely on the other side and there are many (former) Dutch people living: Australia.

That former British penal colony has a whole motorcycle history that we know surprisingly little about. All in all, the enterprising islanders have known 100 engine 'brands' in a hundred years. And that of most of those brands, only a prototype or a few copies at most were built?


And that most of them made use of British (Villiers) engine blocks? But brands such as Alron and Tilbrook really represented something. On the road and on circuits.

Here in the Netherlands we have seen Dutch people coming back. But to our knowledge, they did not bring motorized souvenirs.

But if you ever come across one of the following motorcycle brands in the mixed messages, then you know it is one from 'Down Under'.

And that the shipping costs will start to happen.
