SAD NEWS

Sad to report the passing of one of BMOC's lengendary and only LIFE MEMEBER Al "Smokey" Greaves on Jan 5th. 2022, from a stroke.

Al was a fixture in the BMOC from the earliest days - known for his wicked sense of humor and his innovative fabrication abilities. At the end of the club meetings he would usually provide one or two jokes, which were always well received.

He wrote numerous "Smokey's Corner" articles for the Good Vibrations Newsletter in the early nineties. These stories would recount his early days of motorcycling around Vancouver and New Westminster. - He was a member of the Royal City Rockets Motorcycle Club until it became inactive. He drove the Harley-side hack delivery/wrecker for Deeley's for a time with many a close call.

Copies of Smokey's Corner articles are posted here

BMOC - the Beginnings....

1932 BMOC thumb

RARE PHOTO sent from Author Bill Snelling (click on above thumbnail for a large version)- "Aurora to Ariel - the Motorcycling Life of J. Graham Oates", taken 1932 British Motorcycle Club. It was confirmed that this is Fraser Street, close to British Cycles - Could that be old Carphead and his buddy Elbow Greifs at the back?

Here is a link to another picture from 1932
