The Nomads Motorcycle Club was founded in April 1966, and at the first meeting the subject of a constitution was raised. Nick Ehrman produced a copy of the Royal Cape Yacht Club constitution on which the Clubs constitution was based. The formation of the club was the brainchild of Les Hayden, who subsequently discussed the idea with YMCA Members who were interested in forming a motorcycle club for British Bikes of 500cc’s and over. The April’66 meeting took place in a small lounge in the YMCA in Observatory. The *founder members were, Messrs. Les Hayden, Nick Ehrman, Billy Steyn (Chairman), Pat O’Connor, Mike Wrightford, Brian Conyers, Robert Borrel-Saladin, Peter Wheeler, Fred Berkenshaw, Desmond King, Billy Burnall, Llewellyn Maxsted, Robin Vismer and Army Livings.
