Hello from Australia

Hello everyone,

My name is Andrew Cathcart, and I'm the General Manager for a company called Vee Two, owned by Brook Henry.

Vee Two is best known for his work manufacturing race and restoration components for Ducatis, but in the past we have manufactured parts for all sorts of twins, including the TRX850 (developed in the factory racer that Alan Cathcart raced for Yamaha - winning Daytona), Suzuki TL1000 and the RC51 Honda VTR1000.

Brook owned a RC51 for around a year which he used as a development bike for camshafts and gearbox parts - until it was stolen with two other bikes during a workshop break-in.

Hey!!!!

I lived in WA, around the Fremantle, Mossman Park area from 93-98 before heading to Queensland. I currently live in the San Francisco Bay Area and purchased my First RC about three months ago.

This site has been an enormous help, very knowledgeable folks around here.

Welcome,

I was just down there. Had a great time.

Look forward to hearing and seeing some of the RC51 stories and photos from Australia

And thanks to you as well, Cambo.

I suspected from your avatar that there might be an Australian connection!

I'm from England myself, but moved here to WA for the job at Vee Two. Getting to play with V-twin motorcycles for a day job was worth the trip half way around the world!

That's awesome that you get paid to do what you love. I won't hold you being from England against you being that you seem to have come to your senses with the relocation. ; )
