FIELD Engineers Gallery, Artspace Mackay.

We wash them, we polish them. Sometimes we even name them. But above all, we ride them. Mackay has a long and rich history of motorcycling from the sand racing on the Northern Beaches in the 1920s to the speedway at the Showgrounds at its peak in the 1970s. The tradition of collecting and restoring is alive and well in Mackay and
On yer bike provides an opportunity to view not only an eclectic mix of motorcycles but also to learn the stories of local motorcyclists - stories of ingenuity, courage and daring.
