I wonder where I can buy a new spoke?

Fitment wont be an issue.  17" tyres are a lot easier to get off than 10". And while the wheels out, I'll replace the cush drive too. (And maybe inspect the brake shoes. I dunno of they're a bit shagged, or just naturally a bit shit.  The Dio pulls up on a dime by comparison.


You can buy single spokes. Hit up Anaconda Honda in Te Aroha. I bought a single spoke and nipple combo. Sure, may be a bit modern for his stock, but you never know.

I do remeber @Pee Dubs rear wheel being a bit wobbly.....

Haha I checked that next morning after you mentioned it. Think it's just a warped rim, which I knew was there prior to the ride.

*everyone who was there goes outside to check their bikes for damage.......

I think everything else is sweet, I mean I rode Hanmer to Picton straight afterwards no issue! Might give the dirty bitch a clean this weekend and have a proper check while I'm at it.

I've asked the seller where they were made. 

Sure I replied to this anyway if not

nbc/late ct110 uses a bigger dia brake so need shorter spokes

also they have internal and external spokes (gotta undo a bunch possibly to get to the broken one if your unlucky) might pay to pull it apart first and see how lucky you are/how many you need to order 

can buy singularly from honda at absorbent price - pretty sure like $10-15 each

or get a kit for a nbc or super cub from Thailand or Japan etc

I think I have a solution for the next one. Something slightly more suitable / with less care factor than a fancy big road bike!

Is that the one from Waikanae?

Just tighten that front axle and its good to go

Fixed that on the day lol. Nah I need to sort carb issues, and my air filter split on the bottom, could explain why it died every time I went through water on the last leg of the final day, and a few other things to address.

Yeah that was from Aarons bike and got wrung out and reused on Marks bike

Mine also split so Im now going ahead with adapting a factory CT90 airbox up to my Mikuni carb for trouble free river crossings
