    Show us your $45 a year regoed motorcycles.

    As the thread title says. Show us you $45ish(VTNZ adds about $10) a year regoed motorcycles that you use on a regular basis and a few details about it.

    Mine is a '76 CB550 Super Sport I bought in 1986. Back on the road after a 10 year hiatus. Around $400 saw it back on the road in reliable condition and spent a few more $ doing a bit of alteration to suite me. Not the most economical bike compared to new bikes in this class but I find it fun to ride and that is what really matters.

    Let's see yours.

    Awesome. Obviously has enough "puff" outside the city limits. Just gave the CB550 a clean and check over. Lucky I did as the RH rear foot peg/exhaust mount mounting bolt was a bit lose, which could have been a bit embarrassing out on a skoot if it fell out completely..

    I thought i was doing good for $100 a year in Tasmania. You get $45 a year! You are so lucky. I hope its okay, This is my 82 GS1000 with wisco big bore kit i picked up for and absolute bargain $600. I still have to do a couple of things before i can get it pitted and registered. The price your getting and the roads you have over there im tempted to put my bikes in a small boat and swim over to NZ. $45 bucks,, wow.

    Cool. Had those shocks with chrome springs on my last GSX750EX. Cheap as chips but do the job when set up properly. Most of my '80s stuff I fitted KO)NIs on though. Replacement side covers are readily availably for the ,80s GS series these days for a reasonable price.

    That's only for stuff over 40 years old.
    Don't ask how much a modern bike over 600cc costs.

    Its 30 years here. Half price for 125cc and $100 for classic rego. It works out $200 cheaper that way than registering the big bike by itself. So a postie bike in the shed would pay for itself in a few years They also just gave over 65 year old free drivers licence. I cant wait ....

    This will be on the classic rego, once I finish making it legal (just waiting for indicators).



    I've been trying to find a standard seat for it, to no avail.
    Anyone know anyone that wants to swap for a cafe seat?

    The Coal Burner

    Owned this machine for over 20 years. Started her and ran her for a few minutes last week, gave her a wash, a polish and some new gas. Switched her off, put her back under her sheet and went inside.
    Usually take her for a warranted ride (Rego on hold, 12 months at a time) But Warrant is always current. Flys through, every time!
    Love this old girl, shes going no where, 1 1/2 years, the rego goes to $78.00 per year, cant wait.

    This is mine, a 1980 CBX1000, I am the third owner. Completely unrestored. Sat in someones garage for 21 years, the tyres still the mold marks on them.

    Amazing sound and incredibly smooth to ride. Unlike anything else I have ever ridden.

    That does look minty. I'll have to come kick the tyres when we are mobile again.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.
    Everybody listen, voices in my head
    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?
