HI Everyone, sorry before you slag me off, I get this is not essentially bike related topic but more so horsepower related.

As part of my not for profit group, where we sponsor young achievers in active sports mostly little kids on motor bikes, i have offered to help a lovely young kid compete on her horse at the Australian interschool championships, or at least to my best to channel sponsorship and create a campaign for her to reach this goal.

One thing I have done is set up a crowd funding page and I just need it to trend so we can get bigger sponsors on board for her.

The reason why I need you guys is most use PayPal, and Joe Public might not be as eBay crazy as we all are. (PayPal is our middle name)

So can you guys please at least follow the link below so we can get activity to her page, click the links and share on your social media stuff, and if you feel so moved by her story throw her a couple of bucks from that odd loose change you still have in your PayPal account from those rusty foot pegs you sold in 2003.

I would put more money in myself but I cant make it look like its coming from me all the time ( I already used a kym alias)

Anyway please visit the page and if you can please help and share please do, and lets get all these active kids following there dreams .....

please see her story and draft funding campaign currently online :


Spew, Had just finished prepping the 360a for the Aussie titles and noticed the rear motor bolt had broken, went to replace it thinking it was from my accident only to realise the rear mount is out in one side by 2 mm enough to not line the edge of through bolt in.

Cutting the story short I went to front and noticed there is a crack around the front mount and its been pulling back and tearing the plate... Spewing. So have bit the bullet and pulled motor out to be sure and sure enough its through 50% of its area, if you drew a circle around the mount.  it appears to just be on the bracket mount not the tube but not sure how to tell, but assume I wont need to sup[port the tube.

So now given it appears to have torn on the bracket welded to down tube and I assume its not in the tube then so I can just tap it back and get it welded ?

So should that be welded as a strong weld or a flexible one like brasing ?

If they a mig will it imbrittle the mount and start a crack fest ? What's the go here people who know there welding and stress/ vibration stuff long term I don't want more problems.
pictures of the issue

Selling a few YZ125A bikes..... frames been painted, motors have new bottom ends and rods bikes just need to be reassembled.  have started already putting the stuff back on one and will start the other frame shortly.  nothing to hard.   Most parts havent been touched or restored, just pulled down to paint frame and and cleaning everything else and then putting back on as they were.

TWo are matching numbers, other not.  looking for around $3K if i have to finish them off but less if you save me the trouble of putting all the stuff back on properly

Also have a Rare Brisk factory team KX/KE125 74 Slider for sale, prity sure we fresh end up the top end, should be all there as we intended to race it at qld in 2011 IIRC, finsihed it would no only goergeous to look at and ride, but would be a fast bike and compeditive.

Any way selling off all my project bikes as i need to reclaim some room, and injury forces me to reality check and move those i wont ride on.

Also have TM250 in bits and stack of parts blocking my front door.   Maybe also let some 250A's goes but only for real money.  Photos on FB i think if someone can repost em.

thinking out loud also have YZ125C, DT250A/B, MX250A, TS 250s (cheap) and im not sure what else is going but remind me and ill have a look for it.

Once i get sorted ill take pics and tidy bikes up but more work i have to do more ill want back from them... just saying.

General Discussion / 2014 Classic MX titles - Port Augusta ( pre 78 )
« on: August 08, 2013, 04:47:51 PM »
Been holding off on firing up on the 2014 CMX titles until the 2013 club got there stuff done but we would like to at least get it on the radar where its going and hows it going.

So just a quick update for those interested the 2014 Classic titles will be held in Port Augusta , South Australia, by the PAMCC club.

Its a regional working class town at the foot of the mountain range and between the desert and the sea. Its where all the power is generated, the steels made and all those other industry like mining come through. with the big fishing townships down the way and of course shark cage dives....... there is somthign for everyone.

Its going to be a complete rethink of your typical grassy knowls scramble.  Its going to be a fantastic oppertunity for every one to bring there family and touch the outback and to ride red dirt.  In a mix of desert racing on red loam
The long track is being redesigned to cater for the pre 78 bikes, ev.
enthough we were able to pick our way over ski jumps last weekend at the launch ride.

A face book landing page and other information is available and will be published as soon as the ACTMX thing settles down. We have track video, photos and links to share. So hold tight !

I hope you will all get behind and support this small MX club put on the best little Aussie titles since the same sized club fired up at Crystal brook to give you a great event 2011

There were many consideration as to why to go to this spot and its also fair to the WA crew, the track is just off womera road which is an hour closer to the WA gropers so we expect to see a lot all you people from the west ! every one else its straight in from Broken hill so its kinda a fair drive for everyone around the country.

This is going to be a great chance to Camp and play in the outback, however for the senoirs the township has lots of accomadation only 10 mins down the road.
And for you crashers the hospital is there too.

The Major sponsor for this event will be the Port Augusta council and we expect them to help you with any accomadation to book onforward trips you may like to take in the region, if you wanna make a differant kinda holiday of it.

Much more to come but i just thought its time we shared our vision for 2014 and put something positive out for all you to look forward to.

Cmx and Cdt has had a few stutters of late.  Just saying we either need to get serious about running a high level exposure competiton or mix it up and get the fans in to see whatever they like and the riders whatever they want to do as a format to get things back on track across the country.

Maybe a time for some fresh thinking and get refocused on what is viable these days and what success means.  An event can not make a profit and still be massively successful if it ticks all the other boxes that it was set up to be successful in.

I'm just thinking we need to refocus on what successful events mean.... And how that is delivered in its correct context.

I still can't get buy the concept of the sideburns dirt track guys, low cost , low crowds but high fun,
high participation. It's all how you value it.

Anyway still my favourite bike clip

I'm also thinking Alistair your band needs to bring back the organ grind  ;)
