Re: Something tasty...

Dunno Kiwi, I don't think he raced that one, he might have been on his 88 Yamaha Australia FZR1000?

Re: Getting things back in order

Woohoo! Missed you Hooli. Let's hope we can breath a bit of life back into this old girl (forum). Facebook is just a waste of time in many respects, with people caustically venting, with nothing good to say. There is a way of getting our photobucket Photos back up, (for those who didn't delete their...

Re: My latest Bimbo

Spook, your bikes are looking really nice. Too bad Melbourne is so far away from Tucson ... I would give you my bike for a refresh. Put it in a box my old forum Friend!

Re: My latest Bimbo

Whist I've got this one under restoration, I decided to build another two. Both are likely to be race bikes. This one is my 'Golden Child' lol. For obvious reasons. The frame has been modified behind the carbs to accommodate 41mm FCR's. It will be equipped with Ohlins front and rear. http://i.imgur....

Re: My latest Bimbo

While on face value it looked okay, it was in fact bloody dirty.

Re: The Bane of my existence is finally gone!!!

Very nice job indeed. I googled the Bmw type and they are a monster in their own right. I guess anything with a V-12 in it is going to pull good money from collectors, even if it is fickled.

My latest Bimbo

Here's a picture of my latest Bimota. It's a 1990 YB8 exup, running the 89 FZR1000 engine, and a lot of the FZR1000 components, such as engine, carbs, loom, cdi, radiator, gauges, ignition switch etc. So a close relative... This one is sold, but I'm doing a pre delivery cleanup and inspection. More ...

Photofuckit Betrayal.

Really, what sort of organisation would without warning or excuse, destroy the timeline of millions of users that trusted in a "free" imaging site.

Re: ZX7RR Build.

Yes they are very tasty Jason :thumbup: I lost another big post on the state of the hospital system here in Australia. The rant went out the window as a time out, and probably a good thing. Just recently had some back surgery, and are keen to get on with this build, as well as rehab etc. Here is a p...
