Gawler Swap meet... first ride with my new springer

This year has been a real challenge. Just overcome one hurdle ove and two more would smugly present themselves. My own project of building a new springer for the shovel (intended since day one of the shovel build 18 years ago!) has been a very much on again off again affair; grabbing a few hours or ...

Moto Adelaide 2019...

A couple of weekends ago Moto Adelaide bike show was on for its second year in the Adelaide CBD. We had to book our space well in advance and due to the number of entries, CA was limited to six choppers. I was concerned at how to choose just six. As it turned out, some of our choppers were in pieces...

Re: My current builds

Just looking at your CB again. Rear brake arm should be perpendicular to brake rod when applied hard, so that at rest it is rear of perpendicular. I assume arm is on incorrectly and you will need to lengthen your brake rod. Also check that your brake linings are thick enough. Most car brake speciali...

I suspect the connector block (see plastic) was touching seat bracket. Used the plastic bag as an insulator. Will however check whole wiring .

Before that we were members of FAM (Federation of Australian Motorcyclists) which in the mid seventies amalgamated with MRA. Members are welcome to sit on on monthly committee meetings. I have wan...

Willunga Swap Aug 2019

Despite the dire forecast, weather for Willunga Swap meet was cold and windy, but no rain until I left early to come home. Getting up at 6am is not my favourite pastime, though once I get out to the workshop and see my chopper sitting ready to ride, my spirits pic up pretty quickly. Only a very shor...

Re: My current builds

750 looks like a well ridden chopper... bit cramped? Looks like a 500 tank on it.

Circumventing the RidikulusRool...

Peter's newly purchased machine originates from interstate and therefore needs a number check to be registered in SA. They will check for general adherance to SA Road Rules (can't call it roadworthiness!!!) and the front end looks to be out past our nanny state's Ridikulus550Rool. A phone call and h...

I intended to have this up 3 hours ago, but when I started and got some music going on U tube (Henry Mancini Pink Panther theme) , Rilda joined me and at her request I started finding ballroom dancing clips. She was a very keen ballroom dancer from young, but unfortunately dipped out marrying me as ...
