Ooh nice, i'm keen to get a better look. I remember years ago I found a Huffy "Aerowind" on a scrap metal pile and left it there thinking it was junk (a reasonable conclusion for a Huffy). Found out a couple of years later they are actually pretty decent and quite rare :evil: .

Great minds think alike btw, I was just about to give this thread a tickle :) .

Shall refrain from making any barbed comments. Might that be Mt Kin Kin.. or something? :|
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

Mt Cooroora near Pomona, the next town south. Unfortunately there is no Mt Kin Kin.

A quick snap after a scintillating talk by me on the bike boom (1890s) and a recitation of Mulga Bill's Bicycle at a church Easter morning tea :)

Not sure of much about the bike except ownership back to about 1920. It had three speed SA back pedal brake rear wheel fitted probably in the fifties but I lost that on one of my moves. It has BSA 5/32 7inch cranks but that was pretty standard. I tried carefully removing old paint but all I found was rust. The family in which it lived had the lease of North Keppell Island for many years but that's going back a way. I doubt there was anywhere to ride there so it probably lived around Yeppoon and Rocky.

The renault was a mail car out of the railhead at Ilfracombe from early in the last century. The parts remaining were spread out over a property near Longreach and it had been cut up to use the motor on a welder which is where it still was when Duncan started on it. His wife saw the bonnet being used as a doghouse and thought she should mention it to Duncan. Mr. Renault is an interesting story too.

How did this get in my record collection? Must've picked it up with some old show tune records at a market!

I do remember buying this though. Quite nice jazz flute if I can remember back to 1978. Back when I'd go to the music store every week after payday and buy a record. This one was almost just for the cover : )
