    Interesting.
    That little SAE V8 choked by the tiny intake restrictor they have to run. All that valve area and no way to get an advantage from it.

    Seals and dust covers arrived so I have rebuilt the forks on the GSX, put bearings and spacers back in wheels and put the brake rotor on and rear sprocket, put the forks on the bike and put the handlebars on (this was too boost morale, it makes it look like a bike again) Now its frickin hot in the garage so its beer time :)

    Suspension & Tyres should be here on Monday

    Don't bother looking for a rocker cover - find a 500 motor :thumb_ups:

    One of my customers bought a gt380 , it was his dream bike as a teenager and finally has one , it was a bit of a state a so he stripped it , and then realised this was going to be beyond his level of experience

    after continued cries for help, I finally relented and said I would assemble it , cue a Trailer with a painted frame , rebuilt motor with the top end off, freshly laced wheels and several boxes of parts in varying states of ...: corrosion

    at any rate Phil and I started on it yesterday , and she is now a roller with the rebuilt motor fitted. I have been given creative control , the only provisio is that it has to be red and sound as good as mine.

    Yes sir , went on a fun ride today with the vjmc, it was touted as a tidler ride , with a 350cc max capacity , but the 380 needed a run , and it played up a bit but I managed to get it home

    Some very cool smaller capacity bikes showed up including a mvx250 , rd350lc, cbr250rr , rd200 , t250, xv250, The route was around the Redlands which I where I live , met some members whom I hadn’t seen before . Our muster point was the Redland bay hotel, managed to get a few schooners in upon our return at 10:30am

    Great day out, it is not often you go on a ride with 2 and 4 strokes with 1,2,3 and 4 cylinder bikes
