Re: World wide day of riding Sept 29th

I went to this last year in Sydney and had a great time. Plenty of bikes cruising the city centre then down along the coast to a pub in Coogee. People everywhere just stopped and stared as the riders were wearing suits or 'dapper' attire. Here's the link to my pics from last year's ride. http://www....

Re: mechanical oil pressure gauge

They'll be able to answer your questions no worries. Pete tells me they sell heaps of these.

Here's a pic as promised...

Re: mechanical oil pressure gauge

There is only a square spigot (about 15mm x 15mm) that has a groove that could be used for an external circlip.

I haven't got any way of getting photos off my phone at the moment but will try to remember to post a photo of the back of the gauge in the next couple of days.

Re: mechanical oil pressure gauge

I got an oil filled gauge from Trojan (in Sydney) for my Triumph TR6.

Wrench Magazine

I picked up a copy of a relatively new magazine (issue 4) called "Wrench" It's published by Paisano Publications, the mob that does Easyriders. It features 60s & 70s styled home built choppers. It sort of has an early Easyriders feel, complete with mostly black and white photo spreads that seem to b...

Re: engine coating

Sounds like it could be some sort of anodising process but without adding any colour?

Re: Frame paint

You're probably thinking about Clear Over Base (COB) system where the base colour is a matt finish (and not very durable) that gets covered in clear for gloss and durability. 2 Pack uses a hardener (kinda like the hardener in bog) to make it hard and can be used without a clear coat (at least for no...

Re: Wayn's xs650

Man, this thing looks fantastic! I wouldn't go changing any of the lines although I can understand your concern re: bracing. The old 15" Michelin tyres were on just about anything that required a 15" tyre back then. I don't remeber them being too good for grip though... I'm looking forward to seeing...

Re: FXDS not exactly a chopper project...

Been working towards getting the Dyna back on the road which means transferring the rego from ACT rego to NSW rego. I've got a new rear tyre and a new gel battery. I ordered the new battery while I was at work which meant getting the dimensions from the Yuasa battery that is listed for my bike. As i...

Wheel Transporter

I needed to get my wheel into town (Sydney) so I could get the tyre changed. I thought I'd just carry it but my shoulders aren't what they once were since the accident. I decided to cut down a wheelie bag and make it into a light weight sack truck. I dragged it for close to a couple of K's all up an...

Re: Compact Air Horn

If I can make a car stay in it's lane for even a second or two longer thinking that there may be something larger than them about to hit them then that will give me time to get past them. In Sydney, the rule seems to be that indicating means you have a right to whatever lane you choose, no matter wh...

Re: interstate rego for sa from vic

I did the country police station trick once for a car. I was picking fruit in the Riverland and needed an engine # check to transfer the rego on an XT Falcon ute I bought as a wreck. I even had my girlfriend take it to the local cop shop for added assurety. I was pretty disappointed when I saw they ...

Compact Air Horn

I recently picked up a compact air horn on Ebay and installed it today. I'm not sure why I'm bothering to do this as Sydney drivers don't pay any attention to horns but at least this might have a little impact. Although it's compact it still takes up a bit of space but there's just enough room. Here...
