    I'm not really impressed with the seqeunce of the gearbox, is there another engine I can put in so I can have the gears all up,I know the later cg125 engines are 1 down 4 up. And should I paint the engine black then sand the fins back? I'm really enjoying this project!

    This weekend i decided the pull the front mud guard and the luggage rack off. I then painted the wheels and bottom of the forks to see what that would look like, im pretty happy with the way it looks so far, I just need to get rid of the chunky seat and the rear mud guard as soon as possible.

    After wanting a little run a round bike for a while i finally got lucky and found a decent one. I took the bike in for a wof right away and to my surprise the bike went straight though after sitting for 2 years. i never thought small bikes could be so fun! ive been riding this thing everyday. I dont wanna get to drastic with modifications but im wanting to: Paint the wheels black, Get rid of the mud guards make/purchase a smaller seat, get some smaller lights, and possibly some lower bars.

    The cat loves the wagons!
  13. So after searching and searching i finally found my self one of these fine wagons! i had a few wanted posts out! and finally the long awaited day came! were i got a text from a guy who said he has one for sale! the car was located in the south island in bluff! which was a fair away from were i am located. we agreed on a price then i sorted a transport company to bring it over! i payed way to much for it! but it dident bother me at all! just wanted to find one so bad. so when it first arrived i was just so dam happy with it! It definitely needs some work but its all repairable! the previous owner got the tailgate repaired and did a few small jobs, but thats about it. he just said he drove it for years until it got to rough then he replaced it with a saloon one, The car got imported in 1972 so it was only registered in England for one year! anyway im just pretty excited for this one! favorite wagon i have had so far! im so so eager to have it on the road! i wanna just be doing road trips and camping missions in it already haha! so i guess at this stage i aint gonna go through all the effort and restore it! im just gonna fix all the rust and get everything working properly! just enough to get it on the road! i wont bother respraying it at this stage yet either! ill just to paint touch up nothing wrong with abit of patina! i recently purchased some nos panels too! so later down the track ill strip it down and give it the love it needs! the interior is not the best either ill probably deal with it for now, and eventually get it retrimmed to the nice tan color they come in! The car runs! but not great haha! still haven't decided what im gonna do about this, i think i might just chuck some carbs on it just to get it up and running right! i already have a pi saloon, so one unreliable cars enough for now! What should i do for wheels? i was thinking of getting some 15 inch ssr formula mesh wheels from japan? i see that Beavers old 2000 wagon had some banded steels on! that looked pretty cool! i fitted some 14x8 ssr starsharks on the other day, im not fully convinced they look great yet tho! they look too shiny for it haha! but my mind might change once the cars lowered! some hopefully by my next update this car will be on the road! but my deadline is for wagnats next year! which is ages away! i would take the Herald wagon but i think thats too small to fit a mattress in the back haha! should be good either way! Mind the long lawns haha!
