    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...

    GSX-R1000 long time dream came true yesterday...

    Thread Starter: manyrevs

    Yesterday, after so many years of wanting to own a top end 1000cc sports bike, I finally went and picked up a new GSX-R1000/A.. The Suzuki Summerfest or whatever you call it, did me a world of good in helping me to finally own one of them, with its very low prices. Of course it was only the R1000...

    Suzuki SV650 vs SV1000s handling?

    Thread Starter: rocketman1

    I owned a SV1000s a few years back and found it to be a great bike but found the handlebars to low and the pegs a bit high. Like after 2hrs riding and I wanted to hop off. I was wondering about buying a SV650 or SV1000 (note not S) models. These are the unfaired models and seating is more...

    WoF in central Auckland

    Thread Starter: SaferRides

    I know this gets asked regularly but a search for wof didn't find anything??? I've been taking my bike to VTNZ stations for the last few years, mainly because they usually have someone who can do WoF's on Sundays. But my last one cost over $60, which seems a bit of a piss take for 10 minutes...
