  8. Rear mudguard

    Africa Twin
    As I'm wading through the previous owners 'enhancements' (or bodges as I like to call them!), I now realise the rack was fitted through added holes in the rear mudguard. Tucked away under the rear carrier I didn't notice the extra 'ventilation' until removed for cleaning. Does anyone know if...

  14. Who makes the best repro stickers for an RD03?

    Africa Twin
    I am extremely touchy when it comes to reproduced stickers. Been working for 20 years as an art director and can easily make the difference between superb and the rest. I can reproduce the logos with Illustrator myself (been using it since 1987), but perhaps good exemples already exist. Who has...
  15. At it again!

    Bodgers Corner
    This time with the car. The new-to-us Mondeo has a duff boot release switch, you know the touch pad on the tailgate. A quick investigation shows the microswitch has terminal internal corrosion - all internal contacts fell to bits as soon as I touched them :( There are no suitably sized...

  18. Hi from NZ

    I'd like to introduce myself....................
    Just bought myself a 1990 XL250 Baja. From what I can find online it seems to be a Japanese only model. My intention is to try and renovate back to standard. At some time in the past the twin headlights have been swapped for a single, which in my opinion does look better, but if I can source a...
