Discount Motorcyle Wreckers will have a range of emergency spares at the A3VE for those that need
If you give Paul a call he might be able to have a barrel and piston on standby for you ;D

July 07 is the oldest post here but this is the reboot, I think it was around 04 when I heard about the original forum and joined up, it had already been going a while.

Been a bit quiet on here myself, not much to write home about these days
When alzheimer's kicks in a bit more I might start posting more but then I will just be repeating myself :o

The A3VE is shaping up to be a good one, all permits in place, loops planned out, many workers standing by.
24 Kilometres of new bunting for the special tests at the ready thanks to Ballards
Countless many more kilometres of used bunting as well

Final Moto was mapped out today on gently rolling hills that would be the envy of any classic MX club and it has easy access for spectators and many vantage points for spectators as well

We have 11 Brands entered with 16 different models and 14 different capacities
Our oldest rider is 72 and we have riders from 5 States entered plus that Canberra mob

It should be awesome, wishing I was riding myself, if you’ve been thinking of entering get onto it quick as entries close very soon

Vintage Track / Re: XT500, de rake? Better turning?

Geoff have you ever de raked a XT/TT500?


Don't forget that the later XT/TT models that have less offset in the triples is because they are leading axle forks so it is quite a large change

No, the sort of job I avoid because it gets messy with the oil tank in frame so its hard to do a neat job of it.
I have re raked frames of other models a few times to put them back to normal though!

Thanks Geoff, great pics !! alot of moded MX bikes back then. I guess they were cheaper than the euros. Do you remember doing any suspension mods to the TT350?

MX bikes were always around in Enduros, rode one myself in 87

I did get the suspension fiddled with not long after I ran it in, took it straight to Rod Sharp to have it revalved and he also fitted heavier springs back and front.
I think his theory was stronger springs and less compression dampening made it more plush for the trails but could still take the big hits.
It worked really good for me

He had proved himself to me in 86 so I just took my bikes straight to him in 87 & 88
Very talented guy, really new his stuff, sadly passed away a few years ago now

There has always been GST on secondhand goods if the goods are being sold by a business, the only exemption is if the business is small and come under the $75,000 turnover threshold.

Most motorcycle and car wreckers as well as secondhand machinery companies have had to charge GST on sales for 2 decades now
