General Discussion / adding photos
« on: June 21, 2017, 07:25:08 PM »
Gents - can get to add a photo to my post?  Have done it before - have added all the detail, gone to use the add img button to upload from photobucket but nothing happens within the post to allow me to add photo.

I thought I may have seen something on here previously but can't find that either???

Maybe not my night - so why not ask :)

Any suggestions please?

For Sale / 1974 Yamaha YZ 360B
« on: June 21, 2017, 04:10:03 PM »
Ladies and Gents - due to some outside influences looks like my riding days may have come to a close.  Fortunately/unfortunately the only bike I have left for sale is my Yamaha YZ360B.

Arguably one of the best looking, best set up and fastest  YZBs in Australia.  List of bits done to bike and spares is very extensive so will start here :)

Bike itself - matching numbers

- new/refurbished wheels, tyres, hubs both front and rear laced with HD stainless spokes.
- Race Tech emulators in the front forks with non OEM gaitors fitted to protect fork chrome
- Works performance shock - with race limiter as well for travel restriction
- new plastics/panels/fibreglass all around.
- refurbished and airbrushed fuel tank
- fresh top end in motor and bottom end all gear with gears etc overhauled
- front sprocket protector - as was required by MA - of the John Tate making so allows for easier spare parts sourcing and lighter pull
- all new levers and cables
- PVL system installed
- numerous bolts and bits & pieces either replaced, replated or cleaned etc.
- GMC works replica exhaust system - runs down right hand side, including GMC silencer as well.

As to spare parts:

- complete set of wheels - all ready to go - not new but originals redone for the bike.
- 2 spare shock absorbers - 1 x OEM with new standard HD spring, the other is a Reeder gas modified shockie which needs new seals
- complete set of spare body work with airbrushed tank done in US yellow and using an MX 400B tank.
- complete standard exhaust system - including OEM pickle and header pipe.
- several spare pistons and ring sets
- numerous clutch push lever assemblies
- spare brake hubs
- spare seat foam
- numerous cables, levers etc
- standard clutch pull assembly
- numerous other bits and pieces such as rear shock rubber covers, springs, OEM NOS bolts etc.
- VFORCE reed to fit

I am sure I have forgotten something and will go through the gear over the next few days to see if anything major but essentially all there with lost of spares - Ready to GO!!!!.

Not cheap - asking for $10K ONO + freight at buyers expense.

Bike is in Perth WA and I have a very reliable and decent price freight company can be used if needed.

Will try and get some photos up asap.

cheers

Yamaha / 74/75 throttle tube
« on: February 15, 2017, 08:17:41 PM »
Guys - being lazy again, although have started looking.  Broke my throttle tube this arvo when putting the bike back together - just the part where the end of the throttle cable sits - still buggered now.  What are people using and more importantly where are you getting early throttle tubes from?

thanks muchly

Walter - could be wrong but saw this and thought of you - wasn't sure whether you had this bike or wanted one but thought you might be interested.

For Sale / Bike Magazines
« on: November 26, 2016, 09:48:23 PM »
2 milk crates of bike magazines from 80s onwards.  Hit and miss on quality and topic - lots of SA (South African) Bike, some Two wheels, AMCN (I think), T&T - all to give away to someone who wishes to go through them like I did :)  I am in Perth and due to weight will probably suit someone this way.

cheers

Yamaha / Yamaha serial numbers
« on: September 29, 2016, 02:09:04 PM »
Guys - does anyone know how to identify a Yamaha part by it's serial number - not part number.  I have an AIR shock for the YZ360B - Yamaha don't recognise it but are still chasing for me and it is not a listed part anywhere we can see - serial number is 110581?

thanks

Competition / WA - Wandering Natural Terrain - 21st
« on: August 14, 2016, 09:42:14 PM »

Wandering Mill Farm Scramble - 21st August

VMX riders everywhere - a reminder of the 2016 Wandering natural terrain scramble on 21st August.

The Wandering Mill Farm Scramble is VMXWA's premier event and clubs members have been flocking to the fast open fields of Wandering for a chance to really open the taps on their vintage machines.

Camping is available at the track with portable toilets on site. There will be a roast beef meal on the Saturday night for $10 and the usual bonfire and tall stories. Canteen facilities will be available for breakfast and lunch on Saturday.

The race day kicks of on Sunday with a riders brief at 0815, first practice is at 0845 with a minimum of four rounds of racing concluding with the annual Dan Ferguson Memorial handicap feature.

Classes offered will be A, B and C Grade Pre '75, Pre '70, Pre '65, Pre '60, Over 55's and Sidecars.

Come along for a look - it really is worth the effort with more and better machines turning up than for nearly any other meeting we run - this truly is Classic moto x at its best.

For Sale / 1980 Honda CR250R Moto X Fox replica
« on: August 06, 2016, 06:00:39 PM »
For sale - 1980 Honda CR250R Moto X Fox replica.  44mm Fox Forx, KLP replica swingarm, Fox Air Shox, PFR pipe, wide footpegs, RC replica alloy tank from Holley in Japan (comes with standard plastic tank as well which needs reno).  Also comes with complete spare motor (less kickstarter) which has new Nickasil coating, wiseco piston, V Force reed block and porting by Eric Gorr from Millenium Technologies - motor is currently apart for inspection and refurb if needed.  New wheels front and rear with HD stainless spokes on SM Pro rims.
The bike is not a 100 pointer and has a couple of little things left to be done to complete to my satisfaction - needs new swingarm bolt (on order) to replace home made jobbie, rear axle bolt needs to be professionally shortened to match KLP swingarm, lower chain roller yet to be set up - needs brake stay lowering kit (also on order).  If you wish a garage queen I would also recommend new side panels as these are slightly scuffed from where the rider rubs against them.
$8,500 ono - bit less than some of the more stock CR250's currently being advertised around.
Bike is in Perth, Western Australia.  Feel free to contact for more photos or info.

Honda / Fox swingarm/roller lowering kit
« on: July 25, 2016, 08:24:58 PM »
Ok guys - how critical is the front chain roller lowering kit on a Fox swingarm on a 1980 Honda CR250.  When I try to install the lowering kit it impacts on the brake stay rod - and not by a little bit either - basically the 2 will not go together.  It may explain why the front roller mount was previously bent out of the way to allow fit - but I thought this might cause chain running issues.

????

thanks
