    Brodie's '72 Honda XL250 Motosport!

    Time to start a thread for my old XL. I have had this bike for 14 odd years and it was the first "Big" bike that I ever rode. I moved on from my Z50A to this thing and was amazed at the power and confused by the clutch. Being a fairly tall 13 year old helped me get a leg over but I was still on...

    Brodie's W800

    Decided to start a project thread for my W800 I bought 2 weeks ago. For all the searching on the net I can find there is not much info on mods to these bike. I know the US folks miss out on them but some of the mods will cross over to the W650. My main aim with this bike is to improve the ride...

    Brodie's BSA: version 2 The Bsaki

    Thought I would start a new thread as the old one got a bit full of crazy engine ideas and what not. So here we go. I bought a BSA A10 frame and swing arm a few years ago, the original plan was to build a TriBSA out of it but I do not have the funds to buy a Triumph engine and BSA gearbox to...

    Spotted!

    Thought we should get a spotted thread going. They seem to work on other forums for creating a great local community environment. So I am on holidays for Christmas in the Blue Mountains of Sydney and was out at the Archibald pub in Kurrajong Heights and saw an immaculate black and red Honda...

    The "I deconstructed my fingers real quick" thread WARNING: Gore Pics

    Alright I decided to post a "build thread" for my fingers. Last week I managed to destroy thee last 3 fingers on my right hand by crushing then shearing them under a tree that I was cutting down. The tree became hung up on vines that were on a tree near it and did not drop. When I went to assess...

    Ugly Punx XV1100

    I have recently acquired a '90 XV1100 as a present from my lovely missus. It belonged to my brother in law who had it in storage at his mothers house for the past 10 years. I have found the standard problems with a bike that has sat for so long, gunky carbs, deteriorated rubber and surface rust...

    Shovelhead cylinder mount pattern

    As the topic says, I am in need of the lower bolt pattern and dimensions of a shovelhead front cylinder. Preferably big twin but any will do. I would also like the pushrod hole measurements. This is for a possible future project, a single cylinder at that. If it all measures out I will be...

    Yamaha XS650 1972 XS2 Engine/Parts

    So a while ago I picked up a stuck Yamaha XS2 engine. The plan was to rebuild it and put it into a BSA frame I have. After doing a bit of costing and never being quite sure on the XS engine as the one I wanted for this build I have decided to part it out. This was a complete engine that sat...

    Brodie's Bastard BSA

    Ok, so I decided to start this thread as a running ideas area that will evolve into a build thread. So here we go... I have a BSA A10 frame from what I think is 1958. I have always liked the style of the old BSA bikes but could never afford one. So instead I decided to build my own from a lot...

    EOI: GS750B Parts

    Alright. I have though long and hard and decided it is not financially viable for me to continue my GS build. I have bought quite a few after market parts for this and I have most of the stock parts in storage still. Just thought I would put up a thread to see what people needed. I am willing...

    '72 XS650 Engine.

    For the sake of giving any restorers out there a chance I am willing to trade my '72 XS2 engine for a '74 or newer engine. The XS2 engine is a 306, which is a revised 256 engine. These are sought after for restoration of the early model XS. I would be willing to swap it for a newer 447 type...

    XS2 engine idea thread.

    Alright I started this thread as a way to keep all my ideas in an accessible place as well as allowing others to input their suggestions. My working platform is a 72 Xs650 engine of unknown internals. All I know about this engine is it was a spare for a speedway sidecar, it had an oil cooler...

    Brodie's Workshop

    So I recently bought my first house, which had neither a garage nor proper shed. All that there was to work with was a 3mx3m garden shed that I could hardly stand in. And so the saving began. I have bought together enough funds with the help of my father (get your crap out of my house funds) So...

    Simple TS185 12v conversion. Will it work with this diagram?

    Ok so I am looking at swapping my TS185 electrical system over to 12v, from what I understand if I replace the Reg and Rec with a modern 12v combo I should be right. I have drawn up this simple diagram in hopes it can be checked over and more electrical inclined minds can tell me if it will work...

    '76 Suzuki TS185 "Roker"

    Alright I thought I would start a build thread for the latest addition to my garage. I picked her up for cheap off a friend who knows I have been chasing a 2T thumper. She has come straight from a farm and has only been sitting for about a year. As this is my first smoker I am up for a bit of a...

    Kawasaki EL250 - $800 budget

    During the last few days I have managed to get myself into a tight build spot. My best friends younger brother has been wanting a bike for quite some time. He was after a small cc parallel twin that would do highway speeds without struggling. He also wants it to look like the bike from "Girl...

    Clark Abalone 14FT Boat. "Alestorm II"

    So after a lot of careful budgeting and planning for the GS750 I received a call from my Grandfather. He had bought another boat, and the only thing he wanted off it was the engine. After a bit of chatting he asked me if I wanted it as a project/upgrade. Of course I wanted a bigger boat, but...

    '77 GS750B, "Hahn" Tankenstine.

    OK I was not going to start a build on this bike until I had got the engine free but now is a good a time as any. When I was looking to upgrade from my SR250 I started asking around at work if anyone had a GS450 or the likes, one of the blokes mentioned that he had a 750 he was going to restore...
