Bikes Unlimited History

Bikes Unlimited (Inc.), was formed on February 4th, 1975.
About 150 Western Australian motorcyclists met on this day at the Trades Hall in Perth, to discuss how they could fight the unrealistic laws of the time that were governing the modification of motorcycles.

From that meeting the Club was formed, and to this day, the rationalisation of these rules still is one of the Club's primary objectives. Significant advances have been made over the years, such as;

____________________ Legalisation and registration of Choppers and Custom Motorcycles in 1978.
____________________ The first three legalised Choppers in WA. belonging to Club Members.
____________________ Legalisation and registration of Trikes in 1983.
____________________ Legalisation and registration of Bike Trailers in 1990.

As the Club's name implies, membership is not restricted to owners of any particular make or type of motorcycle, but several members do share a common interest in customised motorcycles. Other Club objectives are to promote friendship among 
motorcyclists, and to encourage public acceptance of motorcycling as a recreational activity and a practical mode of transport.

The Club also organises the Annual Perth Bikers' Charity Ride, which is held on the first weekend of December. The Ride has been running since December 1975, and ALL Motorcyclists are invited to participate in this event, held in aid of the Salvation Army's Christmas Appeal. The only entry requirement for the Perth Bikers Charity Ride is a donation for the Salvo's. Donations to date, have well exceeded $1 million. 

Regular runs and social events are conducted for Members, and a Club meeting is held on the first Monday of every month at 8 p.m., at the Belmont Sports & Recreation Club, corner of Keane and Abernathy Roads in Belmont.
