i saw on facebook today he scammed a guy in the USA for $21K, the guy has reported him to Oz Federal Police and the FBI in the USA.

the guy intends to push it as far as he can due to the amount and importantly the principal.

there was some other interesting things said about a family member of his scamming some employees by not paying their superannuation for years as well.

There was a guy on here quite a few years ago who made a range of polyurethane parts.
He ended up having everything wiped out in a fire.

I don't like to post peoples names online without their permission so I'll send a PM

Yes i remember that guy, i sent him some NOS CR250/500 chain strips for swing-arm and he did some for me,
they were excellent, i felt sorry for him as he lost everything and i think it was close to Xmas.
i sent him $100 on top of what i owed him to help him out.

The only let down is the lack of brakes now . I will help him blueprint the front shoes and then it should fine .
Hey Walter, what do you mean exactly by blueprint?
Thanks in advance

Probably match the shoes to the Hub lining to ensure maximum surface area coverage

Go to a hardware store (Bunnings etc) & buy some "tool clips", they are spring clips designed to hold shovel/rakes etc. screw or rivet them to the front plate, then use an o'ring on the back of them. They work & look a treat.
good Idea K Man

Honda / Re: 83-85 CR, XR, XL brake calipers
« on: July 22, 2021, 06:41:11 PM »
i had 84 and 85 model XR250's back in the day and a bit later 86 CR250 and 85 CR500 (which i still have) i could be wrong but i think they are nearly identical or are in fact identical 2 piston calipers between XR /CR in that era.

does it show as same part number ?
