introduce yourself and your bike
« on: Aug 27, 2010, 00:12:24 »
Hi, thought it only fitting that us kiwi's have our own board seeing as we're so far from anywhere.
So anyway introduce youself and your bike and lets see if we can share ideas and perhaps even parts and other stuff, I'll post pics of my bike once I finish work!
Anyway as for me im in auckland and am in the process of doing a Honda GB400 cafe style with a homemade single seat and the like. its been very time consuming but having enjoyed the entire process so far.
ive just today picked up the motor from the soda blaster and will over the coming weeks start polishing it ready to put back into the frame.
The frame has been repainted and hopefully is ready for the donk. I anticipate spending at least another 3 months on the bike before taking it back on the road.

so come on kiwis introduce yourself! cheers, Terry

Hey, I'm also in Auckland. Got a 2009 Ninja 250 that I use to get around and a BMW R80RT to mess around with until I can get my full license. I wonder how many NZ'ers are on this site.

Hey All,

Im living in the Waikato, form Hawkes Bay original.  My current projects are keeping my 72 CB500f road worthy and modifying a 72 CB350f.  Have striped the 350 right down to nut and bolt and started to work on engine.  Removed cams and valves as to remove the barrels only to find the helicoil cylinder studs have pulled out due to corrosion.  Real bugger this as it may end up costing a bit of $$ to sort.  I have moved onto frame and chopped a few bits off to lighten the weight.  Center stand gone, seat attactments gone.  Im hoping to lay up fibreglass when the time comes to manufacture a seat etc.  Have buffed and polished the front forks and replaced seals etc.  Thse came up real cool.  Im thinking of completely changing the triple tree to some thing else as the Honda one is old and crappy.  As im wanting to install taper roller bearing in handle bars.  One of my major trobles is trying to keep at this project as wife and kids take up alot of time.  So hope to get some pictures and a little motivation from you fellas on this site.  Anyway as time goes on I will try and update profile.  Cheers Keep Riding Boggie!!

ha, thats awesome! we have the exact same colour scheme. mine no longer has the 4-4 exhaust , it was swapped out for a 4-1 exhaust a few owners ago, however i really like the sound it makes
