    Kicker's Honda Beat FC50

    Unfortunately 3 of these have had the engines taken apart and left open for many years by the look of it. Im not sure why either I only met the owners son and handed over the money and loaded them up. Picked them up in mamaku which is a fairly questionable area so hopefully they were aquired legitimately.
  3. Ive been fucking around with it so long now its been refined if anything its overbraked and cant spin a wheel on anything but gravel because its got so much traction. The 2 guys at work who have ridden it are motocross riders no way I'd let anyone with no handling skills near riding it.... ever What it does well is make heaps of noise and makes going fairly slow a heap of fun standing up your sense of self preservation kicks in pretty early.

    Also mine was in a similar state when I got it, engine seized and the paint was and still is a bit shit hence the new scheme.

    Sweet, cheers for posting pics @2strokeracer and nice to meet another owner. Did they say how they ended up with so many?

    I have joined the beat club and bought that lot of bikes. I've also just joined the forum. They are very rough and not really complete, there might be enough parts to get one going... Maybe. Love your advan livery!

    Oooo this could be fun. Will see if the car is still in one piece after the November Comp meets - will bring it up if it is.
  11. I love your dedication and perseverance with this thing, but I have one issue. Its one thing to maim and injure yourself on this thing, but was it family and co-workers now in danger now too?

    5 or 7 seater ? might be enough toys to ferry everyone to their doom ( or the hut on the north side of THAT saddle).

    Man I'm excited for this, especially pesting up the mountains in the 4wds. Am pussying out with the van and bringing modernish pajero instead.
  18. hey guys I have a couple of 2 wire DC motors I want to get plugs for, so they can be removed easily. I have tried bullet connectors but they just arent up to the task, and this isnt being fitted into a car so not really suitable. Whats the next step up in plugs, something screw together? Its for 24V 15A
  19. Nah bol, I’m away for my grandmas birthday.
  20. Well shit..... did this again blew another rim to bits ive got a permanent fix for this but i might go to a 10 inch rim first same as front. On the the upside ive got the oil feed and drain 80% done for the turbo just got to weld the AN4 next to the AN6 fitting and thats it then it just needs the exhaust made to get hot gases into it.

    Moving on with our leisurely pace, we removed the rear deck and lifted the cab off. So much wood in the body! It will make rot repairs easy, but I really hope we have no issues re-registering it. From memory if we can prove it was on nz roads long ago enough a wooden body will be fine?

    Been in Perth for the last 14 years and had my Cyborg for about the same amount of time. There is quite a good little motorsports scene over here with lots of events at the local raceways, driver ed days, cars & coffees etc. Just sucks that almost every road is straight as an arrow and anything twisty is hours away from the city, ok if you kill deathy highway runs i guess.

    This weekend I decided to go ask about getting some carpet underlay to whip under neath the carpet in the cabin to make it a bit more homely. Ended up getting a big slab of it for free! Thank god for useless offcuts.. I am no professional fitter by any means. it didn't really come out nice in 3 cut sections but it will all fit in well when the carpet goes back in 20190817_181032 by phillipbaines, on Flickr I also got sick of the awful looking dirt ridden seats that are impossible to find in any sort of 'good' condition so the cheapest fix is to show down to Super Cheap and get some car covers. Which look 10000% better, 20190817_143241 by phillipbaines, on Flickr 20190817_152236 by phillipbaines, on Flickr After installed, got some snaps. List hasn't changed since last weekend but now it's a bit more respectable. 3 by phillipbaines, on Flickr 1 by phillipbaines, on Flickr 11 by phillipbaines, on Flickr 2 by phillipbaines, on Flickr 4 by phillipbaines, on Flickr 5 by phillipbaines, on Flickr 6 by phillipbaines, on Flickr 10 by phillipbaines, on Flickr 8 by phillipbaines, on Flickr 7 by phillipbaines, on Flickr Build Discussion:

    So after almost 3yrs sitting outisde uncovered I finally decided to crack into the old 4g52 that I fucked all those yrs ago to see what actually happened. I only decided to do so as even though I have a different engine in the car now I was contemplating rebuilding it down the line so I can restore the car to its original form. The motor is seized, and apon taking the head off things looked grim.. Metal in the sup didnt show signs of promise either. And the nail in the coffin was the lack number3 rod bearing which explains the material found in the sump. The other bearings and the crankshaft looked below average aswell.. So from this point I have abit of thinking to do, along with new bearings allround, pistons, rings, possible re-sleeving, a valve job, crankshaft re-ground, a cam and all associated machining costs I'm not sure if it's going to be a worth while venture.. so if anyone has suggestions or knows where I can find another 4g52 please dont hesitate to let me know. (I didnt take any photos after I took the sump off because my hands were covered in shit but i did get one of the rust and water in the cylinders, will get more later maybe. ) Cheers.
  25. You coming pesting next weekend?
  26. I CBF and told Nathan we were giving it a miss this month, but go for your lives.
