    Yeah really nice lines on tank/seat combo. So many get this wrong... [Edit] nice front guard chop too...
  2. Nick's Yamaha SR250

    Shit yeah, the Burt - has sort of sneaked up a bit with new date, haven't registered yet. Best get the Hardley outa Mum's garage, clean up the inevitable oil stains, and get WOF'ed. Natch since it was perfect weather in Nov it will hail in Feb while I'm tenting...

    How's this going? Grad engineer at work has just got one. Trying to convince him to café/bobber it, will show him that red/cream one above...

    Cool. Digging the crates on the back... Good inspiration to get mine out for a run.

    T'riffic...
  6. Suzi FA50

    I got my FA to around 64km/h after much fettling. It was a screamer right up to when it seized on a scooter run... They are a fun wee bike but don't expect too much out of them...
  7. GuyWithAviators' Honda CT90

    Sweet... Might want to clean the oil screen. Just a crude filter that can get blocked, have to take side cover off. Oh and check the acorn nuts are on the correct cyl head studs for oil flow. Can't offer any more advice as mine parked up still waiting for shakedown run...

    Open megaphone? How does that work with back pressure? Asking cos 2-strokes zorsts baffle me (ha)...

    Sadly parked... House renos under way and all projects on hold. Amazingly the wife sees me tinkering on bikes as a low priority when our washing machine is sitting outside... Will be next year till get into it. Should have a better shed layout though when house done.

    Love ticking off items on those long job lists. Going well...
  11. Greenies first roadbike!

    Yellow is cool. Nearly went that with my cafe. Check out some Ducati 450 sport images...

    Great work, love stuff like this. And that blue looks terrific. Watching with interest so you'll have to keep making progress now...
  13. Yeah cheers, I've done that with bike rims, works a treat. Got mine out ok but koozed a socket doing it. Just looked at price of rotors and thought may as well put new ones in while it's in bits. Should be last expense for a while, hopefully...
  14. Yeah was a bit ouchy when they tried to pull it straight...

    So this happened today... That's gonna slow progress a bit. A bit pissed off cos wife and kids away and thought I'd have a real good run in the shed. A few weeks in a cast unfortunately (again)... [edit for reason] Punched something I shouldn't have (not angry - clumsy)... ooh just noticed I can see the metal splinter in my index fingie I picked up the other day. Should have got them to dig it out...
