    South Auckland Thursday Night Ride

    Thread Starter: The_Dover

    She's not looking good. Sand country cancelled now this morning Tussock Buster which for 2nd time is a blow. Only small sub 500 people rides for now. At least until another change reducing numbers. Poos!

    Thread Starter: redthumper27

    hey kiwibikers... I have the pleasure of owning a Gilera 500 Saturno, it's never been ridden, stored all of its life so far. While in storage the radiator must have gone missing, cause its not on the bike now! If you know where one is I'd be keen to have it! Or perhaps you know someone who...

    Hello - looking for a business / mechanic who restores classic bikes. I have a z650 from the 70's needing a restore. Preferring someone from the Wellington area, give or take 100km but will travel further for a good contact. Can anyone help please? Thanks

    whangarei street circuit 1980's

    Thread Starter: jellywrestler

    I'm looking for access to a program for the 1980's street circuit for research i'm doing. Have tried the club up that way but like of lot of other clubs it's moved to motocross rather than road race. Keen for scans or photos please.

      Between this and Paeroa , always one of my favourite weekends of the year. Love the access and general freindliness of the event. Usually at least a couple of generations, sometimes three, coming up for four, of my family milling around sniffing aroma of castrol etc and enjoying the sights and sounds. Usually see familiar some faces and enjoy some respectfull banter with other like minds. Always regret it if I don't get there.

      These lads are a bunch of fun to travel with, there's still a couple of seats so no need to outbid each other, if you want to go PM me and i'll give you their details, I think there's already a number on there too.

      Festival was cool, spent a couple of hours at Puke on Sunday with a camera, they certainly know how to peddle the 'ol machines... Fun!

      Great pics, you even got me on my BMW R90 bitza #146, riding my first ever race.
      Maann some of them bikes can go, I was stoked just being there, a win in the scratch event just made my day...week...year.
      It only took 5 years but it was worth the effort.

      Had a look at your website, you've certainly got the talent with the camera! Alas, as I don't have a dollar to my name at the moment, I'll have to wait a few weeks before I see how much a .JPG download will cost me.

      Thanks PirateJafa, I'm much better on a camera than a racing bike, took too many years to admit it Finally, after 55 yrs, I think I have found my calling..

      There was some incredibly rare and expensive machinery there: http://geoffjames.blogspot.co.nz/201...-macphail.html

      The Kreidler 50 was my personal favourite - exquisite engineering. Finding someone light enough to ride it must have been a real problem!

      Might have to get a few off you at some stage.
