Re: Which bike is that...?

Don't have the funding to get them, but I see 2 panheads, flanked by 2 knuckleheads? Always loved the look of the Panheads, personally.

Re: nsw riders with qld plates

Explanation I've given for ACT plates in NSW (quite legitimate BTW) is that I work in the ACT and come home to NSW on the weekends or holidays, that may only work when the bike's in your name, though.

FWIW

Re: Santee Savior frames for Hondas?

Ooooohhhh , Humble Pie, NOT ;^) Yeah, makes more sense that way, and it may make a tidier rear end, but I rather doubt that the suspension would work anywhere near as well, I thought there was a very good reason that plunger rears only had a short run on production bikes? Hopefully my mate has asked...

Re: Santee Savior frames for Hondas?

OK first up, Nigel, what the hell is "OMNSHO"?? ;^) I'm trying to get some more information about the bike and whether he's open to passing it on, unfortunately the swap wasn't likely to be a serious offer (if it was I'd be on it immediately), but if it isn't a basket case, he's open to parting with...

Re: Mikuni HSR42 parts or rebuild kit

Hey Prof, the HSR (42, 45, 48 ) are designed and made for Harleys, that's why I was asking here.

NB: They were sometimes rebadged as Screaming Eagle units, like mine is.

Mikuni HSR42 parts or rebuild kit

I don't suppose anyone would know where in NSW/Sydney I could pick up a needle and seat or rebuild kit for Mikuni HSR42 quickly, would they ( Harley dealer or general parts shop?) At this point it's still looking like I'll have an Apres Mushter (no bike), DID get down to try and get the XV done this...

Re: Santee Savior frames for Hondas?

Thanks guys, I was only going on what Joe was saying, Santee softtail frame, Honda (K2?)"pursuit" motor from the '70's. Actually, if it's a swingarm rather than plunger rear end, I think I'd prefer that, more likely to be able to get effective suspension that way. he never said savior or plunger rea...

Santee Savior frames for Hondas?

Does anyone remember the Santee Savior frames made for the Honda 4s, and if so can you tell me anything good or bad about them? Got an interesting possible offer today, not sure whether it was serious or not as yet, but one of the old guys at the boat shed was talking about an old bike with Santee s...

Re: N S W MUSHTER 2013

Still looking like I'll have to come up by car at the moment, unless my mate has time this week to strip the XV down, clean the petrol out of the sump and get the single carb setup in :o( Wish things hadn't been so hectic this year, should have had time to get everything done, but whenever I had tim...

Re: CX500 Honda. Off the 'net.

"the CX has a counter rotating gearbox, to eliminate torque twist" I think the term you're looking for is REDUCE torque twist, as we've discussed previously, there's still some there, used to irritate me when it'd torque over onto my right leg at the lights, but they went well enough for a 500 from ...
