    Optimistic sellers

    Thread Starter: Rcktfsh

    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...

    Summer running - 2000 Ducati ST2

    Thread Starter: OddDuck

    I've gone ahead and bought my second Ducati. Summertime. Time to ride again, getting a bike for the season while the 900SS is laid up with major engine rebuild work. It can be a bit of a saga, the fun and games involved in attempting to secure a reasonably reliable ride in the sub-$7K...

    BMW 9Cento (concept) Build it please!

    Thread Starter: MD

    I like this. Will it make the production line? I hope. Coming from an early adopter of the F800S when it came out I would be tempted by this. The F800 lacked power for me, maybe another 100c will be enough to enjoy. Unlike most concepts that are usually all style and won't work in the real...

    Thread Starter: crashalots

    Hi all - old member here. Just bought another bike after about 11 years with no road bike :eek: I'm an engineer so I do enjoy the maintenance slightly more than the riding... so I've picked up a clapped out GSX400E to convert to a cafe style. My question is generic about engine...

    Help with Ducati diagnosis please.....

    Thread Starter: neels

    The dirty old ST2 is being a pig, and I'm out of ideas. Won't start or idle without the choke (well, idle adjust) almost completely on, usually it will idle happily with it completely off unless it's really cold. The thing revs ok, but when being ridden when the throttle is opened it coughs...
