Hi,

I've just purchased my Ace 125 and I can't get the smile off my face!

i'm the second owner. It was manufactured 02/15 with just shy of 3,000kms on the clock. Black frame.

It wasn't well looked after but due to it's relative simplicity half a dozen hours over the last four days and a few dollars on parts and I recon I've got the best bike on the block.

Great to see an active community supporting the bike and mods. I'm looking forward to working through a few.

The boulie's taken second place in the garage as the Ace becomes my daily commuter.

G'day Sneikz, welcome to the fun!

At 3,000k the 'Ace' is just about run-in. I've got about 16,000 on mine and it's going great.

What part of Sydney are you from and have you thought about the doing the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride in September?

I just looked up your location. How about giving me a heads-up if you're planning on a run through the Nasho?

I've decided to name my bike the Silver Bullet and am going to get a couple of tank logos made up as follows. Left and right have the bullet pointing forward.

Hopefull will look OK.

On reading comments in forum I think I'll spend some time checking the cush rubbers and bearing this weekend. If time permits I'll also be adding a tacho and bikini fairing.

Busy Fathers day weekend.

Big Saturday spent tinkering on the "Silver Bullet".

Up on the milk crate and removed the rear wheel to inspect bearings and cush bushes and bolts. There where quite a few comments regarding bearings starting to fail around 3000k and cush bushes disintegrating. Had me a little concerned given it's now my daily ride now and I'm just over the 100kgs. Happy to report that all are in pristine condition with no sign of wear. Smooth as a good cognac.
Chain and sprockets all good along with a consistent tone from each spoke.

Next was to install the tacho and bikini fairing. No problems with either. A big call out to Michael at Skyteam Canberra & NSW. Excellent service and prompt delivery of the fairing. It fitted like a glove! I ummed and arhed about painting it silver or leaving it black. Black won out at this time. Looks OK, but I may change in the future.

Now I'm waiting for the air cleaner and new mirrors. Tinker work for next week!

The "Silver Bullet" is a reality with the application of the decals and a ride with the Silver Bullet Racing Team T-shirt on.
