In the new issue of Motorcycle Trader’s ‘Cafe Racer’ magazine, Cameron Donald sits down for a chat with John Trease, the master mechanic behind the Trease Harley Special.

John’s Harley sportster is the fastest classic bike in Australia and holds the record at Phillip Island, timed at speeds of more than 240km/h.

Cam says John’s name is held in high regard, adding, “Any time his name is mentioned, he instantly gains respect because of the quality of his work and the performance that the engines that he’s built put out.”

Read the full story, including Cam’s experiences of ‘racing the beast’ at Victoria’s Broadford and Phillip Island racetracks, in Cafe Racer issue 2, out now.
