  1. Who Have You Not Seen On Here For A Long Time?

    Slappy Dunno why, but thought of the little fella today
  2. Portable Fridge

    Engel. Other cheaper options are hit and miss I've found. Dozens of friends have Engels and I can't ever recall a complaint or issue. Mine has been on for 15 years (work beer fridge when not in car) and never had a drama. Probably just put the mozz on myself now though lol

    Unfortunately, regurgitating what you've read on other internet forums is not fact. Sadly , it does not make you an expert either ☹️
  4. Property Investment

    Body Corporate fee's & restrictions are an easy trap for young players. As RF stated previously, tailored professional advice is the only way to go. Example - About 10 years ago a couple I knew were looking for a property. No rush they said, were earning 7% interest on our deposit (50k) and properties are growing at 5% in our chosen area. So we'll need to borrow less the longer we wait. haha - best go and run that by your accountant I said
  5. Property Investment

    Statistically the current medium Melbourne house price is 880k as opposed to 670 odd k when this thread was started in mid 2015. Over that period, there has been no shortage of Internet property crash prediction articles either. Akin to not going outside to enjoy the summer because it might rain. Bad weather is inevitable sometime but meanwhile much has been missed. Investors will invest and non investors won't.
  6. 1979 hz 253 stromberg issues

    Hey Chris, Put a kit through it and make sure that everything is throughly clean before reassembly. The old strombergs are very simple and usually perform long after they shouldn't. What you are describing is a fuel supply issue which is most likely due to something foreign becoming dislodged during recent fiddling and blocking the jets/boosters/bleeds. Cheers,

    Liking the bike Biggie?

    Great pics & vids Ric! Another great weekend with a cool group of Riderz that moved well all day with only the one minor issue (puncture). Big cudos to Arthur, Dale & Jess for fuel and chase vehicles respectively and thankfully no bikes or riderz needed to be carted out on this trip. Arbo for organising it all again and of course "Mr Yapeet" aka Tailend Charlie for the accom, coffee, firewood and after hours repairs and the local knowledge. Honourable mentions to Factory Bruce for eating dust/sand all day, Walkahz for pushing on with an intermittent clutch and Frank for standing on the the pegs for the WHOLE day - that man must have legs of steel. See ya'll next time!
  10. KTM boiling fuel?

    Should have a breather? Blocked maybe?
  11. I jest (I remembered you telling me).... How did you go over there Factory Bruce? Do us Aussies proud I hope?
  12. What Pisses Me Orf....!!

    A twincab ute is not a truck
  13. Standing floor on roof of van?

    Standard roof rack with a sheet of 19mm ply (or similar) to spread the load will see you right. Aussies have been doing this at race tracks since the beginning of time. Quite often the punters just bring the ali ladder from home - although this may become troublesome after too much refreshment

    If you want one - buy one. If not, there's tens of thousands of carbed 2t's around that will keep you going for many years to come - it's not the end of the world
