Hamish Combe 1935-2021

It is with great sadness that we report the death of Scottish Trials rider, Hamish Combe a member of the Dunfermline & District Motor Cycle Club, he was aged 85 years.

Hamish was an active trials rider in the 1950s and 1960s and while not a Scottish Champion, he always finished well up in the championships and was a Scottish national trials winner.

He was the Scottish Experts winner in 1961 when the event was a qualifier for the ACU British Experts.

He owned for a time an ex-factory 250cc Francis-Barnett trials machine, MWK498.

Hamish was an active member of the Scottish Six Days Trial organising committee after retiring from competition. He was responsible for restoring the ex-Ron Thomson/Duncan Smith 500cc Triumph Trophy twin GAM686 which eventually became the property of Mike Bell.

His funeral will be held at Falkirk Crematorium on Monday, 23rd August 2021 at 2.30pm.
