Does anybody on this thread know of a guy by the name of Gary Innes (Australian Speedway Sidecar Champion 1971) - he rode Vincents and was also involved heavily in many other parts of the motorcycle racing industry (he organised some work on a bike for me through Stan Bayliss who was the sidecar god of circuit racing at the time - mid 70s).

Garys long departed but played a big part in my early life (he was my son Jasons godfather) and Id like to contact his passenger from that time who raced with him at Sydney Speedway (I believe his name was John) or Garys wife Carmel.

Long shot but who knows - maybe Jimmy Scaysbrook would know.

Gee Paul is it possible to try multiple sites/sources? That's what I'd do instead of taking your linear catholic approach...just a "thought".
