I found a few nice 2 bangers at the Melbourne DGR ride today. I spotted a rare NSR400 too but didn't manage to get a photo. I have never seen a NSR50 on the road before!

It's funny, I bought a mini bike frame off of a guy who's yard connects to where I have worked for 8 years. Never knew what he had in his shop... it is filled with all manner of amazing condition vintage bikes... including at least 6 nsr 50's. One of which is his "daily rider". Though I've never seen him out on it.

I was trying not to cane it too much being that all the engine internals are new or rebuilt ;D


You’ve got that all backwards, you need to wring the piss out of it right off if you want everything to wear in properly.

i have found this to be the case, brand new vespa run in according to the book, never very impressive, ended up putting a sidecar on and writing it off half an hour later. insurance gave me another new one, thrashed it from the word go and it was way more responsive and seemed to have more power ( when you've only got 12 to bargain with you're looking for every one you can find ) , rammed that one into the side of a car a few months later ( and the next one too...)

i do now, the last one ( well nearly last one anyway) that i had detached its back wheel from its one sided axle causing me to slide into the armco railing support at well over 60mph pushing the ball of my ankle up the middle of my leg...

and lets not get into the regrettable incident with a vespa and a sidecar.....

this was my 32nd accident on scooters in about two and a half years and it finally persuaded me that this was not a great way to get about

i did have a couple more scooters after that but never rode the shitful things, it was just a hard habit to break, had 17 all up in that time

since giving them up i've ridden another 33 years and only had 3 minor get offs
