Want to work for the legendary Team Obsolete?
Well, here is an exciting opportunity to work on some of the world’s most famous classic racing bikes from the golden era of racing!
Team owner Rob Iannucci says: “Team Obsolete has an opening for a skilled race mechanic to service our famous stable of exotic race bikes: ex-Hailwood Honda 250/6, ex-Agostini MV Agusta triples and fours, ex-Bob Mac AJS Porcupine, ex-Rayborn XR750TT, ex-Dick Mann BSA Triple, Dave Roper’s TT winning G50 Matchless, and many more.
"One of the bikes you might be working on is the ex-Agostini MV Agusta 500/3. We have excellent workshop facilities in historic Downtown Brooklyn, New York USA.”
About the Author
As a child Bertie (well, Robert back then… blame his sister for the nickname) was exposed to motorcycles thanks to his uncles. They would show up at his house with a lovely lady as pillion throughout the 1970s and 1980s.
After a naughty time on field bikes (it’s what we did back then) Bertie passed his test in the early 1990s and became a reporter for MCN in 1995, moving to the sports desk and covering World Superbikes in 1996.
With a change to Bike Magazine in 1997, he stayed until 2000 as news, features and road test editor. Moving into PR with Cosworth, Bert was bored with cars and returned to bikes in 2001 with Two Wheels Only, becoming editor in 2002 and leaving to be freelance at the end of 2004.
With almost a decade freelancing, Bertie joined Mortons in 2013 and became editor of Classic Motorcycle Mechanics, a post he’s desperately clung to, to this day. And no, he’s never had a pretty girl on the back of his bike.
