    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. ...

    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...

    Similar to MT09?

    Thread Starter: HEsch

    I test rode an MT-09 on the weekend. Loved it although the handlebars were custom so I need to try one with standard bars and see if they are any better (something about the custom set up wasn't quite right). What other models will be similar power/size/weight/fun? Could be any brand. I'm...

    Where to buy steel

    Thread Starter: Mike.Gayner

    I'm getting more into welding/fabrication as a hobby and am just progressing past the stage of working on offcuts and scraps. But I have no idea where to buy steel (box, tube, sheet) for reasonable prices. I'm in Tauranga. Ta.

    Brand new to bikes in West Auckland

    Thread Starter: Statek

    Hi guys, I've ridden a bike a few times around 20 years ago, but since then, other then riding scooters overseas, I've never contemplated on riding in Auckland due to being extremely aware of how terribly unaware most drivers tend to be. With traffic getting really bad this year, and changing...

  • Methven Mountain Thunder - Easter 2013

    Attached is the Methven Street Race entry form and a welcome message from the Methven Lions who host this event with CAMS. Entry is on a first in basis if classes are over subscribed so get your entries in early. Entries close on Friday 15 March 2013.

    The format is the same as last year’s event with the exception of the Formula CAMS 150/250 class replacing the Motards.

    Like last year there will be a prize giving and meal following the conclusion of racing. This will be in Samuels Bar at the Blue Pub. Bar will be open from 5pm and meal from 6pm. The entry fee includes one meal ticket and further meal tickets will be available for purchase at sign-on ($15/head).

    CAMS are not taking t-shirt orders this year, t-shirts can be purchased direct from the supplier or at the track on the day. See the attached Lions message for ordering details.

    N.B. Remember you need a 'Championship' licence to compete at a street race.

    We look forward to seeing you all there.



    Don't forget there's a CAMS club race day on 23 March at Ruapuna B track, a good opportunity for a shake down before Methven the following week.

    Cheers.

      I know ya didnt need this with acc there in all, Ill pass on some info to ya cos it sure wasnt a good look and imo needs attention.
      Great to here the woman injured waset so bad, info comming in the pits was some one was flat on the track.

      Some riders never managed to finish a race due to red flags, good to see tho that the red worked well track cleared and next class on dummy, good desision not to re run a red flaged race imo.

      I think the pre72 muppets were the worst for that, pretty well run event, got through it all fairly quick due to not restarting red flagged races if it wasn't for the last incident they might have even fitted another round in
