    To wreck, or not to wreck? That is the question...

    Haha , one of my customers has one already and dropped in today to show me what they should look like once fixed up, he bought mine as he has a rather large collection of trials bikes and dirt bikes , this one will get a full resto and be ridden in vintage comps , he also said his grand kids like the trials bikes as the seats are much lower.

    In and out within 24 hours

    I also picked up a husky wr300, @ShaneP has given me the rundown on costs to fix it up, and I am quite scared . anyone want to buy a slightly used kidney to help
    offset rhe costs of rebuilding it ?

    I bought a 2nd hand Husky TE449 a while back and had heaps of electrical problems so gave to my son and he got rid of it. My Maico is 38 years old and I've never had any problems with it. :party:

    Nothing... and probably wont this weekend now... looks like I will be spending a couple of hours trying to flood-proof the garage door.
    Massive storm on Thursday late afternoon...Hail damage to the Jeep (company care so doesnt really matter) and the Granny flat on the back of the garage has a heap of water go through it.. so much washing and drying of towels to mop it up.
    new lower garage door seal yesterday but another storm today and water got in again.. so I have been out.. bought some special rubber strip that needs to be glued to the concrete that the door seals on... that will lift the seal level another 15mm and should (touch wood) stop most if not all water coming through... crappy storm water drains cant cope with the water...grrrrr
    If I glue it down today I cant open the door for 24 hrs so that basically kills this weekend.. and I am in Melbourne Friday and Saturday next weekend... cant seem to get a decent run at this engine.

    Me too... that would take a lot of pressure of work wise... it is crazy right now with bores running dry or water levels dropping by anything up to 20 metres in the bigger / deeper bores...
