'Good Rides - Good Fun - Good Friendship'

 

History

The CBX-6 Owners' Club of Australia, a non-profit club, was founded in April 1991 by Garry Fuller and Lindsay Peterkin.  As CBX owners they felt such a unique bike should be preserved for present and future enthusiasts.  At first it was intended to be a Club just for the Hunter Valley Region, but they decided to go National.  A committee was formed with Neville Elliott elected as President. In July the first newsletter was printed and the Club was showing growth with 14 members.

 

The members set about fundraising to keep the Club running and pay for incorporation. Club rides were organised once a month and Norm Fraser’s Motorcycles were invited to be the Club Patron. In the mid 1990s it became apparent that parts were getting harder to find so Lindsay Peterkin started the reproduction program for members. This was ceased in May 2012 due to parts being sourced over the internet.

 

The Club has grown over the years with present membership at around 200.
