Re: Lars BMW rear suspension...

Got in half a day's work on the BM rear guard and tail light mounting. Mounting rail is in stainless and we need a stainless tab on each end. Each tab has two M8 button heads fixing the tab to a matching 8mm threaded block welded to the shocker mount. Here the two tabs and two blocks are marked and ...

Re: Danny's XS Hardtail...

We spent Saturday afternoon and Sunday on the XS again. Danny spent much of the time machining various parts while I worked out what was needed, did fabrication and welding. Danny has chosen a comfy sprung saddle that is 15" x 13". It comes with a pivot which I think is way under strength and not ti...

Re: Lars BMW rear suspension...

This week we are able to get back onto Lars machine. Since the last post I have also begun on the exhausts and set up the brake, but more on them later. Today I continued the rear guard/taillight/number plate set up. You may remember tail light and number plate were originally side mounted. Not comp...

Re: Danny's XS Hardtail...

Danny, being a patient man; and a gentleman besides, did not throw up his hands in horror the next day, but straight into the arduous task of sorting out the tilted axle plate. First, the bottom of the higher plate was gouged out with a die grinder and then levelled up with a coarse flat file. Final...

Barry's 1934 1200 sidevalve chopper...

This is the fourth Aussie 1200 sidevalve chopper I have seen. Belonged to 18 year old Barry back in the 80's. With luck he has a pic of the completed machine... http://www.choppersaustralia.com/Picture library 4/CAFHuntSidevalveChopper-0.jpg http://www.choppersaustralia.com/Picture library 4/CAFHunt...

Re: June Midnight Ride 2018...

Up now Pete. Next time. Ken wanted to come, but ended up trucking interstate. Haven't seen his chopper yet, so a treat in store for both of us.

June Midnight Ride 2018...

With good looking weather for the week, and a friend Rob, coming down from the country to help me do some renovations, what better excuse for a Midnight Ride. Rob has an iron head with very long springer forks in my workshop and doesn't get to ride with anyone at home, so I figured he'd enjoy the un...

DiamondCBNightRide...

Midnight ride coming up this Wednesday night and I've told Rob to bring down his riding gear so he can meet some of our blokes. He's coming to help me with renovations this week, but I reckon the opportunity of a ride in clear weather is too good to miss. However Rob needs two wheels for the night. ...

June Midnight Ride this Wednesday night...

Meet 8pm, Villies, Richmond Wednesday 27th. Decide on route once we all arrive. Will be a bit shorter on than usual. I'm bringing a customer on one of my workshop CB750's. A newly built rigid shovel chopper is also expected. We always have a good time. Dress warm; long underwear and if your leather ...

Henry's springer... spacers...

Henry purchased an Attitude springer some time back and is now setting it up. He brought it up last night because the spacers supplied with the brake kit did not fit. Also the brass bushes were incorrect. This is not the first time I have had this problem with these springers, but was not quite prep...

Re: Danny's XS Hardtail...

In retrospect would have been easier in the jig. Also extra time due to inaccuracies means we may as well have started from scratch. I have done a couple of others and had no problems hence the reason for suggesting he save money and buy a hard tail. He definitely doesn't want any rake... will be to...

For you camera buffs...

Fellow who takes pics out of a Helicopter wanted an extension for his camera. Gave us a part of a tripod to use, but we felt it way too under strength, what with a heavy ball mount and camera in the wind and possible damage from buffeting. He needed it in a hurry, so other things this morning got pu...

2018 Kadina Overnighter & Swap Meet...

I haven't been to the Kadina Swap Meet for some years and figured this was the one to go to. Besides things have been pretty full on lately with more than one disappointment, so what better than to hit the road for a couple of days. Actually being a long weekend was tempted to take three days, but a...
