    Nice, very tight by the looks.

    Brodie's W800

    Been over a year since and update. Nothing really has changed except the odometer reading and tyres. Here are two shots from rides when I have remembered to take them.

    1976 Honda MR175 21st Century Refresh

    A friend of mine's uncle had his original MR50 that he had from when he was a kid. He would always drag it out and show it off when ever we went around to ride on his property. I tried for many years to buy it from him but he wasn't having it. Glad to see you finally have one, can't wait to...

    BSA Lightning Bobber

    Vice grips usually fit/create those sort of nuts.

    FT500 Supermoto Hellride

    Damn that tail section blends in perfect now it is red. Good effort.

    BSA 650L

    If I recall correctly, they are there to act as a heat insulator to prevent vapour issues when the engine is at very high temps. I have had great results soaking old rubber and plastic parts in brake fluid to restore them some what. Just don't leave them in there too long.

    New from Austin TX

    Welcome. Nice list of previous bikes. The Suzuki X6 is a cool bike. What is on your short list for your next bike? The BMW G310GS looks like a decent small ADV.

    I agree with Jerry. Keep with the mags.

    1949 Ford F-3 "old red truck"

    If you do decide to convert to 12v there is always the option of adding electric power steering. I have seen a few mods done with the units and control boxes from early Toyota Prius.

    Welcome back ADC. Good to hear you are on the mend. What bikes are you working on at the moment?

    That's fantastic. Coming up quite nice. The build plate is a great addition as well.

    My DIY Cafe Racer tank is getting there at last.

    Coming together pretty well.

    "A Bird in the Hand" take 2. DR650 Deadtail Bobber, now with a sidecar

    Pity about the seat. Spacers are a nice touch though.

    '84 SR250 Garage build.

    Not much of an update. Just had a week off work to catch up on things at home. Finally got a bit of time to get into the shed and work on this bike. I had bought a hoop to weld to the tail a little while ago. Managed to get it trimmed down and stuck on today. Just need to cut some plate to add...

    Much better booth than I use. Something is better than nothing right?

    1975 Yamaha RD350(LC) Preservation-mod Hellride

    Rad, those stickers are a nice touch.

    Jerry's Follies

    Check out the post on that in my thread if you haven't already. It involves some cutting and grinding but can be done. Edit: added link SR250 footpeg swap

    '84 SR250 Garage build.

    I don't plan to go much over 90kph on this thing. It will be a daily run about to get me to work and back as well as a bit of fun with the sprocket combo. Most of the good riding roads near me are in the mountains so you can only really get up to 80kph.

    '84 SR250 Garage build.

    From what I remember it was fine up to 120. Struggled a bit after that but would get to 130. Keep in mind I am 6'1 and 110kg so the little 250 isn't built with me in mind.

    1975 BMW R90/6 - Rocinante

    I'm with you Irk, thought it was a reference to The Expanse as well.
