  1. Maybe? Think 150cc scooter variator, or quad bike/ATV version? should handle a fair bit of power? I still think a fucked motorcycle engine, cut gear box off it, weld sprocket to crankshaft... for free
  2. Not finished...but you get the idea. I've made it so the top can move around in 90° increments, so you can use it in whatever position you need. Left, right, big wheel or little wheel etc...Paint to come next.
  3. Turns out even a cripple can change an oil seal... Its was leaking so much, the rear brakes no longer worked. I used degreaser and cleaned it all out. I didn't wash it with water inside the rear hub because I didn'twant to contaminate the gearbox oil etc, fingers crossed that doesn't do bad things? I just whipped it down with a rag best I could? I then sanded the brake surfaces on the drum and the pads, put it all back together and boom...brakes work hard out, easily locks up and does skids.
  4. Rear fenders, in true early 2000's Jesse James Monster Garage style "FREEBIE"... Another awesome GC hooked me up. Plug for Retroscooter in Akl for all things ummm retro and scooter???
  5. Looking good man! I've been hard out watching cafe racer TV on YouTube. This style is really growing on me, in particular your bike and moto guzzi (ural and Honda too) with the v or boxer style motors, so cool!
  6. Yes!!! Free delivery, total GC...and although his van was rather big, I didn't end up in a rape dungeon...so things couldn't have gone better.
  7. Soooo, I kinda fucked my knee, as in big time fucked it. No, I wasn't riding a dirt bike, a harley, scooter, motorized mobility scooter, tall bike, drift trike, gokart...nope, not even a goped. I simply went to step up onto a deck and some shit broke inside my knee. Totally unspectacular, no cool "war stories" to tell... Now my biggest problem i was about to face is that I drink coffee like water. In fact some days I don't drink water other than what comes in my coffee or beer. So I was getting kind of desperate to solve this first world problem...but never fear, a solution was in hand, introducing the copyright pending "crup holder":
  8. I've got a lot of ideas for this, some of them are even good ones. I'll start keeping an eye out for parts and see where this goes depending on what pops up.
  9. So, I found this body shell online. And the dude is driving from Napier to Auckland this weekend and has agreed to meet me about 10km from my house with it in his van...total GC!!! Its almost to good to be true, I hope its not a situation I end up regretting, as I'm pushed into said van and wake up days later naked, chained to a pole in his basement? But hey, at least I won't have to worry about doing the shopping and paying the bills... *I'm not actually serious about the van, I've already declared my undying support for vans, van drivers and all things van related in an early post*
  10. I've never liked this helmet (looks wise), its clear coat was flaking off, it had shitty giant white JETPRO logos at front that looked a bit dorky etc. So I decided that I'd paint it army green, however I liked the distressed look so much when I sanded it down in preparation, I decided to clear coat it as is. If I get bored with this look, then I'll just scuff it up and go army green. But im going to rock like this for now.
  11. Not sure how "legal" this is, but sure beats running outta gas 6km from home like last time.
  12. Okay, shits gettin real! Yeeeehah!!!
  13. Yes, yes I am... Dada da da dah, dada da da da dadahh!!!
  14. Going to pay tribute to my favorite show as a kid, the Dukes of Hazzard. Nothing says redneck like the General Lee, so time to start numbing my brain with moonshine and start creating: Made a good start, more to come...
  15. Back on the 50cc. So slow, so ridiculously slow...but so much fun. My wife took off down the road on it, disappeared for 45 minutes, but returned in the best mood. The magic power of scooters!
