Matt Pagdin will ride Phil Scott's motorcycles in the championships this weekend.

Scott will have his bikes roaring around the track in the pre-1965 competition, which is limited to designs of bikes prior to that year, eliminating all the Japanese models.

Six of Scott's bikes are Metisse models, which is a French word for mongrel.

The reason behind the naming is that they have bits of all different makes and models combined to make one bike.

Scott is reasonably new to the building side of things having only started it four years ago.

"Older guys are diminishing so we have to do it with and for the younger generation," Scott said.

"We need to keep this older style bike alive."

Riders from across Australia will take their seat on Scott's handmade creations.

Andy Dykes from Canberra was third in last year's Australian titles and will ride the 650 Triumph Metisse and 500 Jawa Metisse, while Stacey Heaney is Scott's best hope of taking home a title.

Heaney was fourth last year in the open championships, but with the introduction of a women's division she will ride in two sections this year.

The 21 year old will ride the 500 Triumph Metisse and the 250 Macio and Scott is confident she will take the ladies section out.

"There were no ladies sections last year, so this is a great opportunity for her," Scott said

"She rode well in the open sections so if she can ride like that there is no reason why she can't win."

Other riders include newcomers Stuart Corrie and Matt Pagdin who will have their first ride, while veteran John Selva, who was first in 2009 and third in 2010, will also ride.

Scott, who is the owner and mechanic of the bikes ,will be attending the championships.
