For Sale / 1973 Husky CR250 project
« on: September 19, 2017, 11:18:03 AM »
Having a bit of a cull of project bikes. 1st is a 1973 CR250 Husky, starts & runs, sounds healthy. Has all the hard to get stuff, fuel tank, seat, air filter etc, it's a tad (fairly) ugly though, been sitting many years & has an extensive lay forward shock job which puts it out of the pre '75 class. Plenty of  MK frames ex USA which would be the quickest & simplest way to get it back to pre '75 legal. Price is $1500, ph: 0417394889 or email:
I also have a 1976 WR360 project & almost enough to build 2 x 1984 WR400's (the holy grail of Husky vinduro bikes). There's also most of a CR430 engine & 1979 WR frame. Not sure what's going or staying of that lot at the moment, I guess interest may dictate that.
*** 1984 WR400 projects sold. ***
*** 1973 CR250 sold ***

For Sale / 1984/5 Husqvarna WR240
« on: March 28, 2017, 03:25:22 PM »
I have a half decent 1984/5 Husky WR240 (twin shock, liquid cooled). It's reasonably tidy & did run, although last time I started it, it stopped. I pulled the top end off & found a perfect standard bore & piston, however the rod is very tight, so it needs a rod kit at least (I would bore it .5mm over for good measure). It's way down the list of bikes to get to, so available for someone who wants a ripper, rare vinduro bike. The bike has an Australian compliance plate, is complete minus muffler, the seat has been re-done as standard except the blue section is gripper material, comes with new rear mudguard & full graphics kit. The bike is located in Bendigo, Victoria. The price is $2,500 & is non negotiable! You'll find a much, much worse one listed on ebay for a whole lot more money. Ph: 0417394889 or email: for details.

General Discussion / Part identification
« on: March 14, 2017, 01:46:43 PM »
I have an unknown fitment TK (Kijima) porcupine cylinder head. I thought it was for CR125M but alas, no. The head stud spacings are 52mm x 69mm, the combustion chamber width is 56mm (so 125 I guess), it has a flat surface to take a head gasket with dowel holes front & rear. It's in fantastic condition with zero fin damage & I'd almost say it's never been used (no tell tale marks on plug or bolt surfaces). Be a shame not to use it on something. Don't know how to post photos on here or I would. Any help with ID much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

General Discussion / Frickin' eBay!!!
« on: November 06, 2016, 10:17:49 AM »
Is ebay getting more frustrating or is it just me! Listed two large (heavy) parts lots as pick up only, both been sold, however somehow ebay, in it's wisdom has put a postage price of $15.40 on a pick up only listing. Now comes the shit fight with the buyers. Grrrrr!

Tech Talk / Bike loading up when fuel turned on.
« on: October 24, 2016, 04:24:18 PM »
Need some ideas from the brains trust please.
I have a WR430 Husky which has had a complete engine build (rod, bearings, seal, piston etc), done may & nothing is different to any of the others. The bike loads up & won't run with the fuel tap turned on. Turn the fuel tap off & as it leans out it runs clean until it runs out of fuel. If I crack the fuel tap (even 1/4 open), the bike immediately begins to load up again. It used a litre of fuel in about 5 mins of static running, most of it out of the exhaust pipe. Standard 38mm Mikuni with standard jetting for the model.
I have checked, the needle & seat, floats, reeds, air cleaner with nothing out of the ordinary or obvious. I have tried a second carby which I know for certain is good with the same result. So the bike gets too much fuel or not enough air, but I can't see why either should be happening. Anyone experienced this or have any ideas on what is happening?
