    Hey I don’t have FB so I think I’m missing the dates/times for these? Is it posted somewhere else?

    I thought the 4 locals who went there every day would be enough to keep it open! I quite liked stopping in at that one - by that stage of the drive I’m normally pretty thirsty.

    Ha I’m pretty sure that driveshaft hoop was my old one! Can’t believe it suffered that badly. Also you’re probably still using my old engine cross member, glad to see parts live on forever
  4. So. This has been going on for years! I call it a bobber but I live in Chch, our roads are shit, so bobbers aren’t a great idea, so it’s not a bobber. Started like this. slowly turned into this I bought an exploded Honda rebel 450 and then hunted for ages for any engine to go in. Hoped for air cooled, struggled to find anything. finally a bandit 600 engine and loom showed up on trade me. I took my frame there to see if it would fit. There was NO WAY it would fit. So I bought it anyway. Story gets weird here. I had it and the frame sitting and garage doing nothing. Got really drunk one night and kinda had one of those crazy blackouts. Woke up in the morning and the engine is not only in the frame, but the whole thing is up on a desk in my garage. Couldn’t get the fucker down off the desk by myself and couldn’t get the engine out for aaaages. Modified frame to suit, did some other stuff, then put project on hold while I was between permanent houses. Trying to get stuck back in now. Most of wiring is done, just needs foot controls mounted (forward now). Also, my low rider with this new school twin coat powder coat. Sold now And my brothers K100
  5. A libero with a poorly fitted bodykit and wheels wide enough to blow my gbox to pieces. Will only come down if its running ok though, I cant afford for it to shit itself on the way down. Would just have to kill myself if that happened, Im a student. Did I mention terrible doors shut paint job?
  6. I think Im just gonna fit bigger turbo first, think about porting manifold later...
  7. Anyone with a libero is surely special! You dont have a die grinder too do you? I have a TD05H to go on but my manifold has the TD04 hole which is about the width of my penis. Small. Hopefully new turbo stops my blue smoke issues...
  8. Im thinking of going, but from chch, not from dirty south. And not rolling OS
  9. Im in oz at the time KK. Plus Liberos are unacceptable at OS meats. Spesh smokey ones w blown turbo seals and 18s and appliance paint! Hi unhuman, keen as. I will get hold of you when I'm back from straya if thats cool. Its 3 weeks away so hopefully you havent lost it by then. Much appreciated Spanners
  10. With my mouth. Um actually want to borrow a guard roller / paint wrecker to roll out my shitty guards. Can come to some arrangement where I kill your ex wife for you, or buy you a box. Any help would be mucho appreciado, rubbing is gettin me down. Spanners 027 305 4261

    Yeah, like i said it fucking breaks my heart but I cant keep doing this. Earning really good money at the mo and wanna do something clever with it before Im 65!!! Glad it was entertaining for a bit, I promise there will be another car one day but probably more like an old 911 and a bit less ambitious!
