Re: CB250RS Yippie!!! finally my bits are coming back!!!!!

I don't know how you're uploading your images but I link my images from my website, similiar to how you would using photobucket and then I just put what I want to say by the image. so my code looks like:

Talking about my image
jasonkent.ca/images/someimage.jpg[/img}

the 2nd image
[img]jasonkent.ca/images/someimage2.jpg[/img}

The ending bracket is changed for so that the code is not active.

For pics - sign up at Photobucket, upload your pictures to their site, and then paste the IMG links in your posts here. You can put text between them etc, and they'll be bigger too. You're using the site's photo upload feature, which is fine, but it puts all the pics at the end of your post and is limited in size.

Re: CB250RS Yippie!!! the're back!!!!!!

Great project, I like the 250RS and GB250 Hondas, suited perfectly to cafeing and have a bit of nippiness about them which some of the smaller bikes don't. Was thinking of buying one of either, kinda jealous haha. Keep up the good stuff.

Kangaroos are quite nice, but you should see if you can try emu. Guy next to my fathers place has an emu farm...they go really well in pies with a bit of tomato sauce on top ;D

You've got all the making of a good long weekend there bro......Don't know if you noticed the 400f thread earlier this week (i can't find it today) but it had good net parts links. If you keep going at this rate both your builds will be finished before I've even blown the dust off mine! (bike that is). Here's to a bike in every state.

So much fun so little time.... i checked out that 400f it was good to see and i got some ideas for that poject.. well maybe if i do finish them i could lend you a hand if you needed it, but im sure that once youve seen issi's completed and the start of the 400f rebuild if you have any spare time you be down in your workshop getting busy (on the bike build that is,LOL)

Re: CB250RS, things dont always go to plan??

Well i had every entention of painting the frame and a few other bits for the bike this weekend but life got in the way??? the wife decided that she wanted to go and have a look at new homes (up side potential new workshop!!!! down side takes soooo much time!!) then we just called into a friends to say hey and found my mate had started ripping out a wall in the down stairs area for the new bar, so there gos the rest of the day i cant help myself and helped him finish pulling the wall and then building the new frame work and bar opening then relining it with plywood then plaster 1am finish!!! so today was V8 supercars and footy on the box. so anyway im behind so i think ill have to put in the effort during the week to get the oldgirl painted...

Hey Rod, the frame and swingarm are getting some matt black attention, the front forks, headtree, control mounts are up for some gloss silver and the rear shocks and other bits are getting some gloss black. when i get the wheels sorted their for gloss black and the tins (front/rear fenders and tank) gloss metallic blood red, while the engine is going matt black with polished alloy covers.......... oooohh its so close :p
