BALLINA'S Pelicans on Posties are claiming a world record for the most number of postie bikes in the one place.
But the 30 Honda CT110 bikes, which were at the Shaws Bay Hotel last Sunday, still need to be verified by Guinness before it can become an official world record.
Pelican Bill McInerney wasn't too fussed if the record wasn't accepted - but said Guinness had advised no such record currently exists.
"If they say 'nay', we'll try again next year," he said.
There were actually more than 30 postie bikes at the East Ballina pub - and they came from as far away as Ipswich and Toowoomba - but the Pelicans only recorded the number of registered bikes.
After the count, they rode through the pub - it's the second time that's happened - and then cruised down to Ballina's CBD.
The Honda CT110 is a purpose-built postie bike, and Australia Post has exclusive rights to them in Australia.
The world record attempt was just one novelty event the Pelicans have organised in the lead-up to their fundraising ride to Darwin to raise money for Ballina's Biala Special School and the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Already, $22,500 has been raised.
Pelicans have drag-raced their postie bikes at Casino, raced at the Lismore greyhound track and also raced at Lismore Speedway.
Twenty riders - and one real-life postie in Pete Livingston - will leave on their postie bikes from Ballina's Biala school on July 20 to head to Darwin in time for the Darwin Cup..
