When Tom Lang turns 26 on Monday he'll have been alive for half as long as Murray Williams has been racing motorbikes.
The unlikely pair hope their combination of youth and experience can secure an early birthday present when the Australian Classic Motocross Championships wraps up this Sunday at Crystal Brook.
Mr Lang and Mr Williams, 74, will compete in two sidecar classes during the event, riding a 1981 Norton Wasp 920 and 1965 Triumph Bonneville Ariel 650.
Mr Williams began racing bikes in Woomera back in 1959. Now a 10-time Australian sidecar champion, he has no plans to hang up the helmet.
When he was looking for a passenger for the Championships he found in Mr Lang someone who, despite the age difference, shared an equal passion for vintage motorcycles.
