    Optimistic sellers

    Thread Starter: Rcktfsh

    The Bucket Foundry

    Thread Starter: Yow Ling

    The foundry or metal casting stuff thats been going on the the ESE thread really inspired me to get on with having a go at this stuff. If you can cast metal theres really not much you cant do. I dont think its going to be easy, most of it has been a bit of 2 steps forward 1 step back so far. Im...

    Race chassis

    Thread Starter: cotswold

    I just thought I would post these pictures of a couple of bikes I raced back when I was faster. The Waddon chassis was very basic but worked very well and I think would make a fantastic bucket frame. It was light and the bike handled well, the one I had was bought from Ian Young who had finished...

    Winter Layup - 1995 Ducati 900 Supersport

    Thread Starter: OddDuck

    Time for major work, unfortunately. Frame's cracked :( Motor is making oil disappear and power isn't what it used to be either, according to seat of pants dyno. Time for the winter layup, get in, strip it, sort out various issues that have been waiting for a while. Step 1: take it to bits.

    So whats the best Super naked currently?

    Thread Starter: nzspokes

    Top of the tree looks to be the Tuono 1100, but the BMW S1000r is close behind. KTM 1290 SDR is a stunning bike. The Japanese makers dont really seem to be in this game. Which would you pick?

    OK, so prompted by this thread: http://www.kiwibiker.co.nz/forums/showthread.php/178680-X-lite-helmets-Nolan-Brand-Made-in-Italy I realised that my "go-to" helmet was made in 2005 - probably bought in 2006. Its been up the track and I figured, yeah, 11 years is long enough. I thought I...

    Reluctant sellers

    Thread Starter: Cosmik de Bris

    What is it about people on Trade Me? I email a person selling a low mileage 2014 ZX10R with the intention of starting a dialogue to make a cash offer on the bike. No answer. OK so you don't want to sell the thing. So I email 4 dealers asking for a full payment price on a couple of Ducatis, an F4...

    Anakee 3 - how do they fare on wet gravel roads & roadworks?

    Thread Starter: Duncan74

    I need some new tyres to replace the stock ones on the wee-strom. I use the bike for commuting from TGA to AKl and TGA to Hamilton, so mostly tarmac and I want something that's a bit more confident in the wet. However, my route to Hamilton takes me over a windy gravel road as a 20 minute shortcut...
