Historic Log Books
Motorcycling Australia’s Manual of Motorcycle Sport outlines all the rules as they relate to historic road racing at a domestic level. Following some recent confusion, MA wishes to make riders and officials aware of the following important points:

Historic Log Book Application Forms contain details of machines make & model, a list of major components and pictures of the machine so that the Historic Road Racing Commission can make an informed decision on whether or not your machine complies with the technical and eligibility rules for the Period you wish to race in.
The most common reasons for delays in issuing of Log Books:
The colour of the number plates must be correctly matched to the required colour for your machines capacity class, otherwise your Log Book will not be approved. Numbers do not have to be fitted.
A chain guard must be fitted if the exhaust system or swing arm does not shield the sprocket. All machines must comply with the rules under section Frames and Parts in order to have a Log Book issued. This also includes the removal of Central, rear and side-stands, Traffic indicators, Headlamp etc.
Currently required to be fitted for machines competing in Period 4, 5 & 6.
Up to date photographs must be provided as a clear depiction of the machine. They must be taken directly side on (not angled), incorporating the entire bike (including wheels), and in sharp focus with an uncluttered background.
The photographs must be of the machine "race ready" (see points above), showing the completed machine as it would be presented to Scrutineering.
For faired machines, four (4) photographs must be provided, both with fairings on and off - including bottom fairings. For naked machines two (2) photos only are required, the left and ride sides of the machine.
Photographs can be provided as printed hard-copy, on a cd or via email. Photographs must be in full-colour and 6x4" in size, or emailed at a minimum print quality resolution (80+ dpi, 400mb+ etc.)
