In 1953 on the way back through Adelaide on their trip a short Film was made called
" OPERATION TRANSMATILDA" and was shown around Australia at many Theatre in 1954.
 To date I am unable to locate a copy, If by any chance you have seen this film or know who may have a copy, please let me know.
The Film was made in Adelaide by a Mr. Campbell Dobbie of Peerless Productions for Mr. Monk of Monks and Blanks who were screen advertising agents.
The first trip to Melbourne but in a trailor to Visit Renold Chains who have supplied all the chains for Both Bikes

October Update.

After a short hiatus I'm back online, and both bikes are nearly completed. I've been creating and editing a book about Vern and Mick's trip in 1953 which should hopefully be out early next month. Here's a couple of pictures of Mike and Vern beside the bikes:

This Vern, standing next to the BSA.

This is Mike beside the Triumph, similar to what he rode around Australia on.

Over the next few weeks I hope to have a few more photos and I'll try my hand at uploading some movies. Thanks to all who have been visiting this blog, and for your support.
