Hey Madis. Give us a bit of a clue.

What make of bike you are after? AU$$$$ to be spent? Chopper, Sports, Cruiser?? How handy are you on the spanners?

Once we have a better idea, the network will begin to work.

Hi,

Yes, that is Estonia. Little country in Eastern-Europe south of Finland.

For the bike I am looking for rather something cheaper to be a start for a project. Cruiser, chopper, classic. I am not into superbikes much. Would be great to get the bike ready to go for about 4000 AUD.

My current bike is chopped 1989 Kawasaki 600cc Ninja 1st gen. Makes a pretty fast bike. I got the bike for about 1100AUD, was in pieces but engine was OK.

As for my ability to work on bike I have been working and building drift/dragracing cars as a hobby for the last about 5 years. Been working on bikes for about the same time. I have a small garage here where i do my work. Mostly for friends and friends of friends. Last year I spent 2 months in Florida in a bigger shop, specialized in building Nissan S chassis based drift cars. So mostly I have been working on cars but I am not new to tools or bikes. It is alot less bike related stuff here since the season lasts only for about 6 months.

And pullmyfinga, thanks, will let You know.
Madis

Madis, I'll put you down for a piece of floor or spare mattress at the house for the first night in Victoria.
Will you be travelling by yourself?

I just wanted to report that I got myself a bike today and I am all set for the mega ride. Since I have my own tent, I only need to book the Port Mac Donnel night in advance, right?

I will try to get some km's done here in the upcoming week, to get used to driving on left.
