Seen a few Hargan saws mostly BSA powered, bloody dangerous things they were. My dad was using one in the forest near Dorrigo, NSW in the late 1940's when the blade hit something in the log and a piece of the blade flew off and put a hole in his brand new hat only just missing his scalp. He wouldn't use one again and went to work in the timber mill instead of the forest.

Do you know what state he lived in?
Cannot find any funeral notices for Colin D Hutton (plenty of other Huttons) so he may still be around. Any other things that you know that may help with finding him?
Yes, it's a big country but the interweb makes it small again.

Do you know of the VJMC (Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club Inc) or any area branches locally that have people with similar bikes that may be able to help you?

I know a bloke who is so tight that I think his has been welded shut.

Back when helmets were not compulsory here I think we all rode with more caution as we knew what would happen. These days riders are cocooned in helmets and leathers, knowing they will be protected, and some don't take as much care with self preservation.

What ever you buy make sure it fits properly, as a badly fitted helmet could actually be worse for your head in an accident.

We get them building the same sort of crap here in Aus too. None of it legal and shows the worst type of bike mechanic/builder where they cut off all the required bits with a grinder, add cheap ebay Chinese crap, put on some stupid truck tyres, spray can flat black everything and put on u tube to show off their handywork, followed by an ebay add for sale after they realise what a heap of shite it is to ride.

As above but if the wheel has been out what about the wheel bearings? Does the wheel turn easily by hand when on the stand?
