Welcome to our Southern Hemisphere coordinator and Parts Liaison for TR3OC

Welcome to Paul Wilcocks our new spares rep who lives in Australia. Here is an introduction in his own words:

“I moved to Australia in 1996 from New Zealand and now reside in Melbourne. Victoria.

I purchased my first triple in 1982 which was a 1973 T150V and kept this until 1987. I was a NZ Merchant Seaman so I had plenty of time off to ride a circuit from Picton. NZ. to Nelson then down the West Coast of the South Island to Greymouth and Hokitika and back over the alps to Christchurch then home to Picton again. This trip would take about 2 weeks as I would stay with friends along the way. Lots of fun in those days.

In 2011 I deceided to build a Triton so I found a T160 engine in the US and started collecting parts from there. I am not too far off finishing this bike now but since I retired things have slowed with not so much dosh coming in. We still press on even if things have slowed a little. On the bright side I had a win on ‘Melbourne Cup’ day so will be ordering a new set of Amal Mk2s this week!

I own a Triumph America which I use as my ‘get about’ bike.

I have met Doug Gorrie before at a “Come and Try” day at the “Broadford Racing Circuit” and had the next bay in the shed to him. 

I got his Ph. No. from TE and gave him a call before his trip to Europe earlier this year as he had stated not enough triples racing down here. We had a good chat and I will recontact him soon.

I will have a chat with parts sellers here to see if they are interested in advertising in TE.

If you’re a member and downunder please contact me for any requests or part needs etc. Cheers . Paul Wilcocks”
