    I'm logged on using my late fathers account, he was a member on here for a good few years but passed away last year. I was clearing out his garage and found these; a factory exhaust and bracket in near mint condition along with the factory seat again in mint condition. He put on an aftermarket...

    Howdy, developed a nice 1'' hole in the 2-to-1 pipe section of my exhaust, and whilst she sounds awesome uncaged I doubt she'd make MOT. This is on top of my already knackered muffler with its missing chrome exhaust tip. Been looking around the net and I can't find replacement 2-to-1 pipes...

It's persisting down outside so can't get the bike out to look and feel like doing some lathework tonight It's first day of half term and the kids are driving me nuts so will make a couple of bearing drifts to chill...

    As the title says I wanted a better way of fitting a satnav to the vara than the Ram mount thingy that attaches to the handle bar. I had a idea of fitting a bracket of some sort behind the screen and above the clocks so went about planning something . Had a look on the internet and found this...

    I managed to find a Greek chap who would make Africa Twin fairings in Kevlar. I asked him to make the nose cone and those flimsy joining arms as one piece, which he did. I bought a brand-new PowerBronze screen and sent that off and he replicated it in Kevlar (I have broken two of them in the...

    Does anyone know which other model USD forks can be used on a RD02 dommie. I just found a 2004 CRF250R set of fork yokes and was wondering which other bikes have the same diameter fork legs. I would like to use the Brembo caliper I have on my bike which is from a SLR650. If anyone has a usable...
  9. Buell / Harley Davidson
    Refreshing the Harley threads as no one has posted any for a while, well it is Honda Trail bikes after all!. I purchased a solo seat for my Great White Whale (Harley 91 FLHTP) at the Shepton jumble. The seat is for a 97 on RoadKing so it is not correct for the bike, but it was cheapish (for...
  10. For Sale / Wanted
    Do any of you learned gentlemen know what would be the best material to use to make a seat base for my project bike? It needs to be about a foot long and eight inches wide. It needs to be of a material that can take the staples from fitting the seat cover. Where can I find the stuff? :thumbup:

    Fitted a new front sprocket to the BMW f650gs yesterday, a 16 tooth one as opposed to the 17 tooth standard to see if it helped with the low speed snatches and chain slap that is prevalent with these bikes. Took it out today for a test and boy does it make a difference.:thumbright: The bike is...

    I was never one for shorts (shots), that is until i began going to the Nationals and fell in with the likes of Lowflyer, Francis Geoff and Eammon. Anyhoo, Meself and PhilW would meet at Hirwaun and begin our rideouts past Penderyn Distillery, of which i would make a comment to my wife about...

    hola, after a fairly long trip(for me, 4500-5000rpm fairly constant, mountain road approxx 2hrs) i thought i'd just pop the plug out to see if all was well. to my horror, it was whiter than i expected. darker around the insulator but dirty white at the tips. i always believed they should be...
