Birdwood Mill, South Australia
The exhibit plaque reads:
Irish motorcycle racer Fay Taylour successfully raced this motorcycle in Australia in 1929. Taylour was an unusual woman for her times,
choosing a career as a motor racer and never marrying. She learned to drive a car when she was 12 and began riding motorcycles when
she was at school. She purchased her first motorcycle with a prize she won at school for domestic science.
This motorcycle has a unique frame design feature called the 'swan neck' which lowered the centre of gravity, yet allowed quite large
28" wheels to be fitted. It was described as 'looking fast even when it was standing still', and was possibly the first machine built
specifically for dirt track racing.
