One of the most evocative photos of a man and his machine from my Good Companions Rally photograph collection. Photo credit Willy van der Zyden.

Tony Keene, VMT458, Bundanoon NSW
18th October 1986

This Thruxton was purchased new by Dennis Quinlan in March 1967, the first to arrive in NSW. This is the machine no.34 pictured racing at the Castrol 6 Hour Race on DQ's blog site.
Tony sold the bike to a collector in Western Australia, who then passed it on to a local VMCCWA member, Kevin, who in turn passed it on to VOCA member Syd. This fine machine is still in Western Australia and occasionally my VMT457 and this one, VMT458, are reunited on a club run.
