  1. Ah righto. I was under the impression you could go up to 30sqm without running into all the red tape. It is offset from the road, has enough space to park a car in front of it, just. It's near the roundabout in south New Brighton @yetchh it's on TC2 land, has a single garage on it at the moment but she needs some love. Lets say I just fix the existing structure then, is there an OS GC builder (or friend of a friend) that'd be willing to come kick some tires and let me know what's up?
  2. Not entirely sure where to post this, but I'll try here first haha. I've just bought a place in Brighton and the single garage it came with is pretty sad, holes in the metal roof, walls are some vintage thin concrete sheets (potentially asbestos, who knows) and the frames a bit rot in the bottom corners. I'm after a few quotes from local builders to get it made a little wider and longer, so will need to effectively be bowled then a bit of extra concrete laid, frame up, and sides put on (don't need any fancy interior lining done or wiring, I'll do that). Any GCs on here that could take a look and let me know if I'm attempting anything stupid? and give me a rough price? Can get a roofer to do the roof afterwards.
  3. I ended up being there on Hogan's ST90 with the misso on the back.

  5. So, thanks to @Raizer @Shakotom @chris r @GuyWithAviators I was able to pick up my new daily from Gisborne. Drove it back in the rain with a blown master cylinder and no read trailing arm bush, which took 12 hours, then proceeded to get a WOF and apply some low. Photos of collection, when collected and now upcoming. Mid drive back; Got the beast back home and gave it all a clean; Then I wanted to apply some lows, test fitted these wheels I had; Picked up a set of cheap D2s and all the collars and body adjustment was seized, couple days of bathing in coke then hitting with a torch and pry bars and it all came loose so gave those a good once over. Got back home and promptly chucked them in; That brings us up to date, just enjoying dragging mudflaps around the place. Good to be back in a shuttle again, RIP my old one.
  6. I feel like this threads already a couple purchases behind now haha. @Shakotom
  7. Ha - I was tempted to grab this myself when it came up, but I was in Raglan in a yurt with no power for the weekend and had 1% battery when Thomas linked me it. Have fun with it man!
  8. Survived East Cape on this thing. What a laugh that was, having never ridden gravel, wet or clay shit before. Was much slower than most, and had a handful of 'oh shit' moments, but it was rad. Couple photos to prove the bike and I survived;
  9. Shiiiiiit yeahhhhhhhhhhh. I haven't watched yet, but hyped anyway haha. Edit; yeah nice, liked the unexpected Action Bronson.
  10. But you've got a Pyzar now @GuyWithAviators - moving up in the world.
  11. He pretty much did with that "We're just a bunch of motorcyclists who happened to drive through Opotiki at the same time" haha. Brilliant.
