  1. I feel kind of dirty saying this but I really like it.
  2. So stoked for you. Needs some 3 piece wheels and done. A mate of mine (who has owned at least 10 x 1600s in the last 20 years, a bit of an expert and still owns a fj20et one.. ) told me that when it comes to Datsun 1600s, UJ axles may be less smooth but CV axles click and fail bad when 1600s are lowered where they need to be lowered to. I'm gonna run UJ myself. I'm also gonna run R180 clutch LSD from a Subaru STI 2004. Much better than viscous. Only some 2004-2006 STI are R180 clutch type 3.9, so you need to do ya homework. See this site for total LSD conversion info. Same
  3. Dude, I'm lovin this. Two tone + legit accessories. Nice.
  4. I will have to get my Yammy F5 going and meet up for a putt putt.
  5. Ahhh, I saw you this morning putting along Langley. Nice bike! Unless there is another one as tidy with a green helmeted rider. Disappointed I had had my headphones on so I was late to turn and see.
  6. Nice, only about 5 Kawasakis?
  7. Awesome, can't wait to see ya old man's car ripping up the hill.
  8. If your rebuild kit didn't come with a float valve replacement that will be your culprit for over fuelling. As I pointed out, the original one was dicey and not operating smoothly. Good to hear its runnin and smokin'!

    It is not going as yet, a looooong term project. I am trying to cull the fleet a little. I will send you a message.
  11. My bad, I see you said the tag does match the plates, I thought it says doesn't. I would still get the original colour info for the vehicle that the plates belong to (from land transport) and see if it matches the original colour od the shell in front of you. A mistake, even though it would be epic is still plausible when they are assembling cars in the 70s, literally grabbing the next shell and next ID tag off the pile and uniting them.
  12. I'm getting lost here. tag don't match shell? tag don't match plates? plates match shell? If tag doesn't match plates, what does chassis number on tag come back to?
  13. Mazda 1300 coupe - two door coupe roof Mazda 1300 sedan - 4 door Mazda 1300 saloon - 2 door same body shape as 4 door. Well that is how it was explained to me moons ago. The interwebs says a sedan/saloon is the same same Tomato / Tomato. I can't remember which body style it was but it was not correct, I just used sedan / saloon as an example because it rang a bell.
  14. Sound straight forward but have you actually tried to change the body type recently? I thought it could be done with a conversation but learnt there is now a form. I tried that once a couple of years ago, same deal. A car registered as a saloon when it was a sedan. I got told I needed to fill out the form and get proof in the form of a statement from the manufacturer and that the chassis number matched the body style so never bothered. Once again, gotta get the right person on the desk on any given day.
  15. Ahh, good to know what sort of car. So like quite a few NZ assembled cars in the 1970s by Todd Motors where shells were shipped here with no chassis numbers stamped and not necessarily ever were (ala Datsun 1600s and some Mazdas) and they just relied on a manufacturer ID tag. So the ID tag on the car, on face of it, is for the wrong body style and recorded manufacturer (Chrysler/Hillman) and that is what leads you to believe it has had the plates tags swapped? Has the question been asked directly of the current/previous owner? It may be just a mistake. I have seen a ton of mistakes
  16. True but he is asking about re-registering. Good luck trying to convince Land Transport or an inspector that putting plates and tags on a vehicle was not done for a dishonest purpose. The fact is, you cannot swap the identity of one vehicle to another regardless of the reason. To be re-registered, the burden of proof is on the person proving (physically with engine/chassis/ID numbers) that it is not stolen. Not that it might be or might not be because it is impossible to determine.
  17. It would seem that he is screwed. Engine no? Without some firm proof as to the original identity, he will never be able to prove its not stolen. Buyer beware, due diligence, caveat emptor etc.
  18. OOsh got any spares for the F5? I have messed up my front end (steering head + shocks) by mixing bits with a YB100....
  19. An old bike of mine. CB200 tank on a Cb125 frame with GL145 swing arm and GL145 front end (ex-bucket racer) From memory the CB200 tank was too wide at steering stem end, and longer so not a bolt-on option. And same deal with CB50 tank (tank longer + didn't fit over frame but fitted at steering head end...) Aaaaand, same again with early model CB100/CB125 tank (think someone on here might actually own this bike now? Saw it at DGR Wellington 2017 with the same pink tank and butterfly decal)
  20. Gee that's a score! Shaft drive sweetness. The 750 looks so much bigger physically with its tank than the 650. I should really finish my KZ650.

    Say what? [Shock posting] Call of New Zealand! Let's introduce the New Zealand reckless troupe that caught on with confusion! ! 【Foreigner reckless driver】 Hahah, sweet Engrish on that blog post
  22. Two things require immediate improvement Wheels Stance Leave it to another Freybergian.....
  23. Resurrection is the concept of coming back to life after death. (Google) 3 years after the last post......pure fluke I saw an original pic of this when he started in 2012 on Google images and it linked to a project thread?! Dragging this back up from the 2014, and boy, it has to be seen to be believed. The finish was worth the effort by Tyron and his helpers. How often with that much effort do people actually follow through to the end? Black cars are known to be hard to get straight. This is now as straight as a die. Without the project thread on this car
  24. Choice! Take it to ohakune for labour weekend and meet your Z cars slightly older brother. Could there be a better black 80s 2 seater Z car photo op!?
