The darling of the postal delivery service in suburban Australia, these little motorbikes have been seen on some tough tracks around the country. Raising money for charities or just for fun… what a way to see the land down under!
Most of the Postie bikes hit the auctions at about 4 years of age. They then become faithful companions to regular Aussies being seen around town, often attached to the back end of many a motorhome or with a surf board fixed to the side and heading to the waves. Some are ‘fortunate enough’ to head off on great adventures….
It’s not just Aussies taking to the road on these mean machines, read about the travels of the ex-British Bobbies, Gordan and Belle Sinclair.
