    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...

  • AMCC Advanced Rider Training day for Christmas!!! 19th of December

    The 2015/16
    Advanced Rider Training Season continues with a great way to start the Christmas Period


    DATES


    Just under a month away the second ART day for the season will be on and it will make a fantastic way to start the season. We are all so looking forward to getting this next round off the ground. The first round of this season was a great day. Started with a misty morning but grew into a lovely day with a warm track.

    Now with summer really starting to warm up it should be a great way to roll into the Christmas period and a new season of riding in the sun.

    Be in and be quick there are only two more rounds this season!!!!


    P.S. feel free to yell if you need to know anything or need advice on what to wear or bring.

      Great day everyone

      Many thanks to all the instructors and marshalls who gave up their time to make this happen.

      Less oil on the track would be nice next time

      Where there any photographers at the track?

      I don't recall seeing any, although usually someone is there taking photos?
