    CAMS History

    Classic Action Motorcycle Sport Inc. (S.I) club was formed over 25 years ago in Christchurch, NZ, by a group of racers wanting to keep the classic bikes of yesteryear on the South Island racetracks, many of these machines were “SPECIALS”, B31’s, B50’s, etc. running parts that were not completely original to these bikes when they came out of their factories.
