so i think next on the list of things to do was modify a rack and bolt that to the bike for extra gasoline.
bobs your uncle
bottom two are riv nuts and the top one is welded in. This rack was of a 100 suzuki that i bent into shape and then cut the front off and welded my front tap to.
jerry can fits perfect, bit since riding it a fair amount ive decided that its not going to go there and ill relocated it to another place, this weeks job hopefully.
the other day i had my main hub nut come off on me pretty much the hole way which i wasnt overly happy about.
had a really weird feeling going on just didnt feel nice at all.
quick fix and away again for a bit. while parts from auckland arrived
so while i done that i thought id do a few other things to it.
oh and my side panel had shit set up and it feel off last time i went to raglan so i removed that and put riv nuts in place and put new bolts with a bunch of lock tight on them so it worn be falling off, but to do that i had to remove my tank.
while the tank was out i did this.
what on earth is this thing on top.
and i couldnt get it off so an easy fix.
put that bad boy back in and man my headlight now touches the ground!!!! its bloody amazing.
done a bunch of riding in the dark and a hell of alot of kms, clocked up over 200kms in the weekend of bathurst.
My speedo stopped working as well so i use google to track my kms
since then i have been clocking up the kms and making sure its going well. but have been sick of not having a mirror so that was next on the list of things to do. had a bit of flat bar at work so i drilled a couple of holes and cleaned the edges up a bit, while welding a nut on the front for it. these holes are factory mounted holes for a mirror which was bloody handy.
its a bit short but im not faised at all lest i now have one, i do have to look through my armpit though.
went for a shack down ride with @mark105 and @Truenotch and done 130 kms on it, fuel tap getting turned on at 90km mark and running out going down my drive way on the way to work on sunday at 130kms
stopped off at the tooth brush fence cause well if its not on the internet its not real
then the raglan pub.
then when 105 broke down, at this stage markku also had no kick start so i was push starting him on my vespa with one leg out.
and we made it back to mine just in time to get our drank on for my house warming.
also here are some other random photos of scooter stuff.
the view from home
doing drop offs at the post shop.
how low can you go, well low enough to scrape the kick start.
also here is my last ride on the gyro.
