This place looks like it could come in handy for making exhausts. I think i want to make some mufflers for the xs650 held on with springs all maid from stainless.
Update: shit i thought they were uk based. To good to be true. Anyone got any contact for something similar this side of the drink?
Got the xs650 running over the weekend. Only 1 minor hickup with the clutch push rod pinion missing. Amazingly found it in a totally different box. Wired it up and rode it to the Black skulls bike show. Disnt have time for an mot or tax but the duct tapped on numberplate fell off pretty quick anyway so no
Chance of a camera fine
Here for 6 days and day 1 was pretty dam good.
Next stop Joshua Tree.
This is from last year, Pat and the z750 I made for him.
With some sort of ARD mag trickery and some ridiculous disc brakes. Looks sweet with a bit of rake in the front end too.
Quick little ride up the port hills today. I was only out for an hour or two and saw very few other cars and loads of amazing scenery. I used to cycle up here when i was a teen ager just to see how fast i could go on the way down. Fastest i got was 85kph on my mountain bike on the last steepest section of road before having to slam on the brakes to make the t junction at the bottom.
Governers Bay ride yesterday was so much fun. Probably some of the loudest bikes I have ever heard and when they were all together going up one of the steepest streets in Christchurch it was like a symphony with each bike putting out its own distinct pitch. I couldn’t stop smiling the hole way.
These guys are testiment that you don’t need big bikes or budget to have fun. Each bike was totally differect from the next and also varied in legality.
