Raced in the 1926 Senior TT at the Isle of Man on a Norton motorcycle in but retired and did not finish the race Henrik was very enthusiastic about racing,and he won the World 10 mile grass championship at Opotiki, but I do not know the year
He joined the Oddfellows Lodge in 1917
Photograph was taken at the Hawera Racecourse, near New Plymouth.
(I would guess at a date of 1925/26 by the saddle tank Norton).
The rider is Henrik.H.Moller, and the chap on the left is his brother Jack,
who was a veteran of Gallipoli.
The Mollers became very successful in the motor trade in New Zealand with garages in both New Plymouth and Hawera. These later became Moller Johnson Motors and there was a Moller Yamaha Motors in Auckland eventually sold to Yamaha.
