Vickers Moto Cycles
My name is Anthony Vickers I am 39 years young and part of the Wanaruah people. I established and managed Vickers Moto Cycles, a motor cycle retail store in the Hunter region with my brother Brett for several years before closing due to a downturn in the retail sector for this Industry.
We are now in the process of setting up an online business selling bikes and accessories and also developing an exciting web based training product which will appeal to both young and not so young bike enthusiasts.
I also run youth training schools on the weekends teaching young people about both the enjoyment, skill and dangers of riding motor cycles.
Vickers Motor Cycles during its operations won the Hunter Region New Business of the Year 2003, Hunter Region Indigenous Business of the Year 2004 and Best Hunter Automotive Services Business in 2005/2006.
My personal achievements include 3 silver medals on the Australian team at the International Six Days Enduro and 3 National Enduro Championships.
I have attained a Certificate in Coaching gained through the Australian Institute of Sport. I have coached high profile riders who have also been selected to represent Australia Nationally and Internationally.
My next goal is to guide and support Indigenous people to succeed in their employment or business, and we will achieve this along with the great mob of people called Mandurah Hunter Indigenous Business Chamber.
