$20,000 U.S for a monkey bike!  Also, the size of the tank on that 64 model... you could ride it around Australia without having to fill up.
The QA50 is also getting rarer and doesnt show up often for sale.  They are a great fun little bike to ride and will pull and adult around the bush no problem. 
The bike is for the daughter to ride, but i am taking it to the old salt lakes and bush areas where i rode one as a kid 40 years ago.

well, the bike lobbed into "The Empire Of Dirt" today and bugger me did old mate have a crack. seat off, tank off, shock unbolted, carb clamps undone headlight off, blinkers off, kicker undone,  collection of removed parts in a bucket.

Only thing he didn't remove was the bloody horn.

I removed the carbs spilling manky stale fuel everywhere, and I have come to the conclusion that this bike was built around the carbs. They were rested on a block of wood on the assembly line and the rest of the bike was built around them.

I thought I'd give it a short blast of ether to see if it popped. Nada. Need to pull the plug and see if I have spark now and if I can get the kick lever back to the top.

No idea why I do love jobs.

So, the old girl is going back together quickly after needing a bit of tlc.
Picked up the re-chromed handlebars today, as well as two 4.00 x 5 tubes from a mobility centre.  Yes, it takes the same tubes as those buggies that our senior citizens are burning around on.

I painted the rims white and then clear coated them.  During the first assembly, the valve stem split from the tube.  I disassembled the split rim and the paint chipped and cracked. Cheap arse Bunnings paint.  I have now had to strip the paint and redo it in 2K.  Will be as hard as nails.

New paint on frame and forks.. new mudguards, new seat, new brake pads and polished backing plates.

Daughter is looking forward to going for a spin...
