Thanks, I'll give them a try.

Cheers, Mike

Wow!  I guess this means there is not one decent rechromer in the southeast.  I had hoped there would be at least one who was OK.

I've got a B44 with a dull header pipe.  Any recommendations for rechroming in Brisbane, reliable more important than a cheap job.
Cheers, Mike

I may have a bike in Perth coming up, depends on transport costs to Brisbane.  What did yours cost to get here?

Cheers, Mike

I'll take the tyres down to Double the Dirt at Nudgee this Saturday, see if anyone wants them. Most guys use the Metzler on  their 18in wheels, and the sliders use the speedway tyres for 19in.

GMC, I haven't heard from you, so I assume you are not interested.  I'll pass the tyres on to one of the local clubs, maybe the local junior dirt track mob.

I'm in Margate Qld.  If anyone is passing through, I'm here most days.  Then you can pay me what you think its worth when you see it.

Clearing out my shed.  I've got a couple of rear tyres I don't need.

Mitas    375x19 Speedway Rear SW-05 - used on my HJH for 2 races, so still has most of the prickles in place.

Michelin 400x18 Trial Competition X11 - on my 250 Maico for one meeting, minimal wear.

Pick up only, and make an offer.

cheers, Mike

Why would you want to?  The Amal works very well, and they are still available new.  Just flood the shit out of them, and off you go.

Back in the day everyone fitted a couple of steam pipe ilo shocks for lap racing and speedway stock bike racing.  not hard to get used to, and no plunging about at the rear, even on rough tracks.

No more racing, my health says it's time to move it on.  A very rare Welsh made scrambler, in excellent condition.  Fitted with optional 9E Villiers engine - original 7E, race prepared by Nametab Engineering in the UK.  Full circle flywheels, high comp head, electronic ignition.  NJB shocks front and rear, Alloy bars, Amal Concentric carb, chain & sprockets, tyres all done probably a dozen races from new. Goes well, just needs a rider with a little more go.  These were only manufactured for 18 months, so very few exist even in Great Britain.  Only 6 of all models came to Australia, I believe this would be the only l/l fork scrambler.  Can't post photos, but can send by email.
Cheers, Mike

Hyosung Bendigo have cleared most of their old Yams, just 1 x YD2 & 1 x YD3 left.  Most gone in the last year (sob).  I'll keep looking, something will show up.
