Pipeburn: Can you introduce yourself?

I’m Maurice Rissman of Raider Motorsport. I’ve been involved in bike and car racing my entire life as both a competitor and team owner. In 2003 I escaped Sydney to Coffs Harbor (about 7 hours ride north of Sydney) where I married and now live with my wife Jo, and our boys Jack and Ben.

PB: Describe Raider Motorsport to us.

MR: Raider Motorsport’s been around since the 70s and has been involved in almost every discipline of two and four wheel competition. Today we’re a rare and unique bike importer; things like Ducati, Guzzi, Bimota, Honda Fours, Z1 Kawakas and triples. We also do top shelf stuff like Egli Vincent and the oval-pistoned Honda RC40. This year we’ve created our own range of retro racers, some of which have appeared on Pipeburn. We’ve kicked off with SR’s and GB’s, and we hope to soon have a reasonable range of models in various styles; Bobbers, Street Fighters and Café Racers etc.
