By FRANCIE HEALY They sit at Bob’s Diner in


Delta, Ont., just a couple of Old Bastards sipping on coffee and shooting the breeze. They’re Ernie Olivo and


Malcolm (Mac) Reath, and they practically live and breathe old motorcycles. Ernie started a club for them in the Delta area. He’s an Old Bastard, and so is Mac, and so are all the members of the Old Bastards Vintage Motorcycle Club. It was a name just waiting to


happen. Most of the members are themselves what you might call “vintage”, and the club is in historic Bastard Township (now part of the Township of Rideau Lakes). Vintage, with this group, might


mean you’re anywhere from 40 to 80 or beyond. Mac Reath is 77 (but you’d


never believe it in a million years). He sports two artificial knees, a steel shoulder, and a bad ankle − partly due to motorcycle injuries. But he rides. Oh, yes. He rides. So does Ernie, who used to race


vintage motorcycles at Mosport and teach the skill of motorcycle-riding. He was involved for years with the Canadian Vintage Motorcycle Group (CVMG) based in Toronto. These are energetic, smart men


with lots of humour, stories, and a passion for the grand old machines. continued on page 18
