1960 KENWICK MOTO CROSS PROGRAMME
Dennis Lamp recalls: Hey Brian, you jogged the old memory with the page on the Kenwick Scrambles in 1960. I was 13 years old and I rode my push bike from Gosnells to Spectate. I remember Charlie West winning everything. I think he had been in Europe and had bought home three bikes, 250, 350, and 500cc BSA works scramblers. Also on the programme there is an entrant with a machine called a Niaychi. I can remember asking the rider what it was and if it was a new brand on the market. He replied that he made the bike himself out of parts from various makes that he had, NIAYCHI stood for" name it and you can have it". I wonder how many people can recall that after 54 years, I must have thought it very clever. That scramble stayed with me because I was supposed to be home studying for a exam the next day. I did very poorly and paid the consequences.... Dennis Lamp.
