My bike turned evil today
did you have it exorcised?
Does it go like a 'Bat outa Hell'?
You were supposed to turn the trip-meter so it says 666.6, too
went into frasers honda today to order some parts- no orders taken for next month as honda aus warehouse closed for reno and new computer system- ordered from england at a higher price.
Well, I did something I have never done before , I paid more than asking price for 2 bikes. I had a customer come in and offer me some bikes as he is leaving Brisbane and needed them picked up. he proposed a price then showed me some pics , so I offered a slightly higher price to secure it
Here is one on them , a barn find fresh 1985 gsxr400
Last pic is after Phil gave it a quick clean
Nice score... looks like it was sitting for quite some time.
what is the other bike in the deal?
1991 Kawasaki zephyr 550
I believe you paid more than asking for the sv650 with the clutch switch problem and for an incomplete fzr250...
Gixxer 400 is a runner
She dumped a lot of her exhaust on my lift
Just as long as it isn't rust off the frame.
Out for a ride, first nice sunny Saturday in weeks. New tyres scrubbed in, and a smile on my dial.
Sitting at pie in he sky eating some lunch and looking at all the bikes
first fine day since the texas ride so got the hornet out to see if new speedo drive cog and oiling the cable would work.it did!
Some facebook pics from today
Gixxer is back together ,’I took it for a spin and it rode quite well, I will put it up for sale shortly as a project bike.
Finally ended up with the right sized master cylinder kit..rebuilt and bleed the front brake for the 3rd time..so far no leaks ...touch wood
went for a ride to gloucster[spelt wrong] yesterday on the hornet. speedo worked well.ride was with the vjmc club. visited a members shed where i viewed some suzuki hustlers, cl450 and a 500t honda,s and a suzuki ag bike.top weather and enjoyable company. all the bikes viewed were from late 60,s and early 70,s.
Didn’t do too much today dues to the cold and the pain from my knee.
I did get most of the bearings out of the engine cases but there are 2 blind bearings that my pilot bearing puller wouldn’t budge.
Seems the little hook end doesn’t seat well enough because of the slight chamfer on the inner diameter
I might have to grind the legs a bit so they can get more bite.
I will try that tomorrow and if it doesn’t work I will worry about it after they are machined for the 350cc barrel.
