  1. GT250R lifter or bobbins or spools

    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 ...
  3. 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
    This device was good for 63 mph!
    I'll be using a T bucket hot rod chassis & transverse leaf spring front end
    The back wheel will be using ...

  6. Looking for a bike shed/workshop for a photo shoot!

    Hi There,

    We are looking for an authentic motorbike shed for a photoshoot,d ate TBC.
    It does not have to be shop-like or tidy as we are looking for something with grunge and edge!
    preferably with tools, old bike parts and and bikes in background.
    Workshop or shed would have to be based in Auckland.
    The shoot would be only half days = roughly 4 hours in the morning or whenever suits.

    Please see reference image attached - the look we are ...

  7. New Project December 2012 - the Kawasaki Zephyr

  8. AMCC Round 2 @ Hampton Downs



    A weekend riding bikes is a good weekend, especially when the bike looks so good!!

    Friday I got an early start as I had lots to do on the bike. I ended up spending the entire day tidying up and finishing off a whole bunch of things on the bike. Little things like a seat pad (painted fibreglass is really slippery), bolting the brake disk onto the spare rear wheel, final cut and polish so the new paintwork doesn't get damaged, go to the supermarket and get supplies for ...
