    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.

    Sourcing electric bikes

    Thread Starter: gaddman

    Anybody on here found a place that sells or can import an electric bike? Cycletreads in Auckland had the Zero a few years ago, which looks pretty sweet. There's also a nice Italian one - Energica. Keen to hear if anybody has tried bringing one in and how much it ends up costing.

      Rock on Guys... last one of the season. Lets put in a show and have some fun before it all runs out.

      Weather is looking like we might get a light shower late in the afternoon (so could be after we are finished), although who knows as Hampton has its own weather pattern.

      Should be a great day!!!
