    Probably not a good enough rider for that.
  3. Yes definitely. Not only would that be fucking cool, you are probably saving the life of a mechanic. Maybe even 2 mechanics.
  4. Those rear brakes are a shit cunt to replace. Rear disc replacement is major involving removing rusty seized together exhaust joints, busted knuckles, prayers to multiple deitys, suicide and a lot of swearing. IMHO you may as well drop.the whole subframe and give it a full rebuild. Do it once do it right. Perhaps even get a custom.bolt together exhaust made for it rather than stupid slip joints that seize or break. Also those discs look kind of OK and I would not hesitate in rolling with them until I was feeling particularly masochistic. If anything just replace the hand brake pads because they are not too bad to replace if your car has the access panels under the rear seat. (not all of them do, weirdly/Jaguarly) PS: Paul Walbran's is the best Jag Barry I know of up your way. edit - http://mgparts.co.nz/what-we-do-and-meet-the-team/

    Bought this tonight for the parts too. Brand new wheels and tyres, speedo, bars and bar mount, grips, lights, number plate frame and leg shield. Plus I'll have a spare frame and fork for if I want to take on another project in the future.

    OK so got the engine sitting in tonight, all it took was drilling the 2 mounts in the motor to 10mm. (from 8mm) I should probably go 10.5mm cos the bolt is a snug fit the whole way through the mount. You can see the bottom mount hole and how far away the bolt in the engine sits. Will be piss easy to make some mounts for it. That's tomorrows job probably. A close up of the mount bolt to frame for reference. Engine sitting in the frame rather nicely. The carb needs to be turned 90 degrees otherwise it will be in the way of the front wheel. Chucked the leg shield on and It fits really nicely, will need a decent trim for the carb to poke through (need to figure out if I want it to come out right or left side) and also a hole or two for cables to snake through. I forgot to take a pic of all the wiring but it is all in the fuel tank area and will be easy to neatly tuck away and it's going to be a piece of piss to wire up.

    Yeah there is plenty of standard cub full fendered but fuck all deluxe's, almost every picture of a customised deluxe has the tail docked.

    Oooo, tell me what I need to do get in the queue for some of that very exact same treatment?

    Man it is so hard to find sweet Deluxe Cub's that have been customised but maintained a full rear fender. Found a total of 2 in all my searching. So this is my new inspiration. not sold on the body colour leg shield or those rear springs but I do like it a lot. If anyone knows of any non-potato shots of this bike, preferably from different angles please attach them.

    All good mate, don't stress, I ordered a brand new one from the states as he seller had a few other things I needed too. Plus this one has the mahoosive taillight bracket deleted.

    Does anyone know if this will fit on mine? @MopedNZ https://www.ebay.com/itm/Honda-C50-C70-Passport-C90-Rear-metal-fender-mud-guard-1980-1989-H2633-/130657727676 Mine is a 78 - this says it's for 1980-89. It doesn't have the taillight bracket (I'm not a fan of that bracket anyway). Plus it's from USA so I might get it quicker than out of Thailand.

    Not yet, yes keen but after one fairly soon, when are you thinking you will be cutting yours off?

    I was but I didn't want to turn up like I was asking favours so took it somewhere else and got tucked. Anyhow, getting on with business I kicked into high gear stripping down my first motorbike tonight. 90 minutes later.... It now fits nicely into a box. And some other bits... Tomorrow night I start mock up...

    Abominable gents was around before QCR... Yeah come fight me cunt. LoL xoxox
  23. Mate, I started that shit, I leave it to all the imitators now. /I forgot.
  24. After being peer pressured by you bloody cunts, I decided to pull the engine out. (I hate you all now but believe me that once that engine is back in I'll be thanking you for doing it once doing it right) So first thing on the menu was to sweep up all that sound deadening which was surprisingly heavy 2.5 decent sized rubbish bags full. Then I made the executive decision to make getting the engine in and out easy. Before it goes on the transported I'll be fabbing up some nice brackets to hold this back in place and give it back the strength it needs. Leaving me with this nice big gap. Then after undoing this, twisting that, pushing this and pulling that... out she came. Leaving me with a gaping hole. So now that's done, I'll have a few wee things to do then it's off to the blasters. Couldn't have done it without the almighty help of Jibba Jabba/Midnight/Mo Bigga/Plank/@lowlife. Thanks bud - you rule!! Also cheers to @vivaspeed for the lunchtime beers.
