  2. Lessons and A Milestone Comes into View.



    Two weeks further on and finally feeling that the first milestone is just around the corner…having the bike registered and getting number plates!! :-)

    I’d been struggling to refit the gearbox to the bell-housing, not being able to centre everything just right for it to slide back together. So, using the dimensions given in my Haynes manual, Mace Engineering machined a tool to help centre ...
  3. Project Dream Beemer - Challenges

    God, it's the beginning of July already! Winter seems to have set in with dreary grey days on end and none of the exciting stuff like snow or electrical storms. In my last post Mike the auto-sparky had been for his second visit to rewire the bike and return it as much as possible to 'factory' wiring. The idea being to establish a known starting point and see what improvement, if any, it made to the way the bike was running. So...

    Re-connecting the fan and thermo-sensor seems to have ...

    What a great way to end an excellent summer full of riding.

    Thursday evening was the last of the Honda Twilight Ride Days. It's only 3 sessions but it's also really cheap.

    Early on Thursday it was looking extremely dodgy with steady rain until about 10:00am, with light rain until about 1:00pm and then the sky cleared. By 4:30pm the roads were bone dry and perfectly clean. It was warming up so the track was ...
  6. My first blog

    From the day i first started riding I have been aiming to get a CBR954. In my opinion they are one of the best looking bikes ever made.
    From the first day I saw one I was in love.

    Finally I found myself in a position to get one relatively cheap that I could really make my own.

    I first saw it on Trademe - CBR954 perfect trackbike, stripped to essentials - deregistered, no headlight, indicators, mirrors, left hand switch cluster and a few other bits and pieces. ...

    So essentially what this is is a Ford model T chassis minus rear axle with an Indian 80 cubic inch motor & most of it's frame minus forks etc
    The guy in the pic made this out of junk for the then princely sum of $18
    I'm not sure of the year but suspect 1920s

    I'll be using a T bucket hot rod chassis & transverse leaf spring front end
    The back wheel will be using ...
