  1. The Maungatapu is a little gnarlier than that, but it still looks a lot more comfy than @Chunky_ts ride!
  2. Yeah I'd love to see a twist and go at this event, but it probably needs to be capable of an 80km/h cruising speed. Last year the slowest bikes appeared to be new Honda Monkey 125s (they were fine, but pretty consistent). I want something for this event, last year I rode/cheated on a WR250R. If someone has anything interesting, road legal, <200cc and is interested in a running/reg on hold 1983 Honda FT500, hit me up.
  3. I have a possible top of the south island loop planned for a future ride that includes these plus quite a few other adventures, we'll see what the appetite is post Molesworth 2022.
  4. There's plenty of side trails on day 1 like Mt Altimarloch, or other bits and pieces towards Hanmer if you went in the Rainbow a wee way. https://www.adventureridingnz.co.nz/gps-tracks-rides/south-island-tracks/
  5. Your motor in one of these, oh my! https://www.trademe.co.nz/3241799129 Does anyone know anything about them?
  6. Little bro is after a combo oil pressure/boost gauge for his 180SX Type X. This funtionally is sweet, but doesn't look that great. What does the hive mind of Oldschool reckon? https://www.shopsaas.com/saas-dual-gauge-boost-0-30-psi-ana-oil-press-140-psi-dig-trax-series-sg611230?fbclid=IwAR2KQqQ73Ew48wN09SviaAW6KycIBPPqZGnzvNbrLhkl128JvDUHvVrIj5s
  7. I'd like to see the support team go through at zero cost in fuel/accommodation/dobros when not driving if possible. They make a huge difference to how much fun these rides are.
  8. Although on closer inspection, these still appear to be shipped out of Australia.
  9. Duckduckgo is the answer https://starrinstruments.co.nz/temperature-monitoring/45-temperature-strips-8-level.html
  10. If you swapped directions, I'd say your descriptions for day 1 and 3 would swap, with possible almost falling asleep on the third day! I'd be keen to host/organise a Nelson pub crawl - would make me feel better about missing day 1/half of day 3. I'm still looking to swap my FT500 for something more event sympathetic.
  11. The Ender 3 Pro is great for the $, but I reckon the max bed temp is closer to 80-85 degrees by the time the build plate is attached.
  12. Was a solid turn out for a mid-winter meet! I'll let Alex post the photo shoot...
  13. I'm picking an Avenger on a Landcruiser chassis with a V10 diesel engine....
  14. I'm now away the following weekend, so if I play my cards right I'll ride over with you guys and Maungatapu home...
  15. You just need to get a key, and pay a $100 refundable deposit. Really straightforward, @JustHarryand @Mof drove over it in support of the Molesworth Melee.
  16. @ThePog could use it as an excuse to Dynafari over the Maungatapu. Unfortunately, if the weather is good I'm doing the Rameka/hanging out in Golden Bay.
  17. I like the way that you write so clearly, and photograph so well that there is plenty of information for someone to follow the process along at home with their own vehicle.
  18. I rode to my first ever oldschool meet on an RMX50, from Nelson to Kaikoura. I miss that bike! @anglia4 and @governorsam were there too. I'm pretty sure I averaged 10L/100km for the return trip...
  19. @Truenotch this is enough notice to start the grovelling. I need to do some sums - East of Masterton is basically uncharted terrain so the pine is real.
  20. @Chunky_tmentioned this... I meet the pre-requisites (other than riding ability). Maybe I just commit...what day do you reckon you'll leave from Palmy? There is a part of me that would love to ride from Nelson and ignore the dirty looks when I request unpaid leave...
  21. Does it run? Have you got plates you can steal off something else? Boom Molesworth-able @Chunky_tproved you don't need much else!
  22. It's a 2A from a Tercel apparently.
