About the Moto Guzzi Club of Victoria

The Leinster Arms Hotel, Gold St., Collingwood ─ home of the Moto Guzzi Club of Victoria.


Background The club was formed in 1981 by several like-minded individuals at a pub.  It still meets in a pub.  It is the largest Moto Guzzi club in Australia.

Our club represents all Moto Guzzi owners in Victoria.  Owners, riders and aficionados are invited to join.  You don't have to own a Moto Guzzi.

Club Plates The MGCoV is a VicRoads Approved Club for the Club Permit Scheme (Historic motorcycle registration).  VicRoads has introduced these changes from 31 January 2015.

We are able to assist members to have their historic motorcycle(s) registered under the Club Plate Scheme. (i.e. 25 years older than the date of Permit Application).  
 
All club plate applications need to go to the Club Plate Scheme Registrar, John Fergusen.  

Warning: if your membership lapses, so does your red plate registration!  It’s your responsibility to maintain the currency of your membership – not the Club’s.
Club Tools The Club owns a bunch of factory tools  and manuals for use by members.  Fast access to tools when you need them!
