    Optimistic sellers

    Thread Starter: Rcktfsh

    This trader must be pretty hard to outdo as far as optimism goes. Bike has been on the market for a year now, wonder when the penny will drop he''s dreaming at that price. You'd have thought after a year he might have got round to the little bit of tlc required to get running. ...

    high flow sv1000s exhaust headers

    Thread Starter: Temporary-Kiwi

    Hi, so my brother has talked me into making him a new exhaust for his sv1000s, I did some calculations and decided on basicly the same size as std diameter, but in a slight tapered style, which ive found gives increased acceleration thru boosting the torque curve, which is what he's asked for,...

      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!
