    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. ...

    South Auckland Thursday Night Ride

    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...

    Pete's TF125 build

    Thread Starter: F5 Dave

    Well here's just a quick build to try and produce something raceable from something that looked pretty but was not. Pete saw the pics of the Orange NSR on Tardme and bought in faith. When it arrived from Auckland clearly all was not well. In no order, the brakes were useless, the crazy big...

    Okay I'll start the new year's thread this time to save jellywrestler doing it. So Alex Marquez is now confirmed as Marc's team mate at Repsol Honda.

    Tiger 100

    Thread Starter: Voltaire

    Finally got my 1953 Tiger 100 purchased on a whim a year ago on TM on the road. Lesson there is don't buy a bike that " needs re registering" unless it was imported pre 1999 as you need to jump thru more hoops to get it re vinned. Fortunately I'm a member of the VCC so it was easier. Turns out...

    Q: Bevelhead Ducati. How to free-up a binding clutch?

    Thread Starter: jim.cox

    Ok, I'll be the first to admit it: The MHR does not get enough riding. Aside from a WoF and new a front tyre there isn't actually much holding it back. Except the clutch - which is binding (again). I've pulled it apart before and found parts of it are so polished that with the 50 weight...
