My Mum has been going through the archives of the local Ballarat Courier newspapers' christmas supplement as part of her research, and is coming across interesting ads for all sorts of things. We liked this one for an early Australian made motorcycle:

Two and a half years ago I moved to Adelaide from Sydney. I knew it was a good cycling city, I rode the linear park to work and into the CBD but in February this year when the Tour Down Under and Lance fever gripped town it was cycling a cycling obsessed city - so I created this Adelaide Cyclists social network.
