Northern Ireland Autocycle Run

Post  JohnMac on Sat Dec 11, 2010 12:16 pm

Hi All

Norman Motobyks led the way on an Autocycle Run along the North Coast in September. Chris Sharp took some excellent pictures. The link below is to his Flickr page:

We hope to have a few more runs next year. If anyone is interested, please get in touch.

John

Hello John.That looks more like a push that a run.It's lovely to see our old machines being used and enjoyed.Earlier this year I spent a weekend riding my Nippy ,with the National Autocycle and Cyclemotor Club.I did about 45 miles on it and really enjoyed myself.If you you have any events where we would be able to join you and play please let us know.Keep us posted, Paul

Thanks Paul, The picture I use as an avatar was a still taken during making of a film called Cup Cake. The Norman Motobyk and an Excelsior Autobyk got minor roles. The Norman shown is being ridden by the lead actress while the girl pushing is the assistant producer. The film company insurance would not cover the actors riding the bikes under power so they were pushed uphill and freewheeled down again. The intention was to dub the sound of the engine on afterwards but I don't know if this happened. More stills from the film can be seen by clicking on the link below. The North Coast Run photo are on the previous link.
