    Goggles, are my eyes important?

    Thats the thing i would be unsure about, if the Velcro would hold....

    If the quickstraps have a bit of length to them you could get them under and they would work, but you woukd need maybe 2 inches (guessing, will measure tonight)of elastic strap either side.

    I got them from here: https://www.mxstore.com.au/p/AirFlaps-Goggle-Ventilation-System/20-AFK Their actual site is: http://www.airflaps.com

    Goggles, are my eyes important?

    I recently got a set of 'airflaps' and ran them on the weekend. They arent as cheap as the dual layer lenses, but they worked a treat!! Most of the time i forgot to put them back in the 'closed' position, and didnt have any fogging issues at all... Just another option instead of putting goggles around the back of your hemet
  5. Bit more tonight, got a couple more parts from work and put the crankcases together. Unfortunately i have to find a few more parts but hopefully can get the top end and a few other bits on sooner rather than later...
  6. Since i couldnt get the husaberg running to go riding today (cranks, but no power to anything else, but thats for another time...) i finally got some work done on this project. Its not much, but its a start!! Have had a few things waterblasted, and they have come up a treat!! Got the bearings in one side crankcase, and assembled the gearbox, shift mechanism & crank. Cant go any further with it as i have left a few bits at work and need to still get a few things.... Will hopefully get the engine complete and running soon, then i can get the frame and tinwork started.

    1979 hz 253 stromberg issues

    Sorry i forgot to put what the problem was in the end!! The carbon filter was falling apart and ending up going through the vent hose i to the carby bowl & blocking the jets!! Put an inline filter in for a tempotary solution until the neighbour decides what he wants to do... Amongst other things, also discovered along the way the dizzy bolt was only just holding the dizzy in place so retimed and tightened the bolt properley now runs really well!!

    Summer merchandise

    I wouldnt mind a singlet or two [emoji5] any chance of lighter colored ones at all or only black and blue ones (wife points out that all my singlets/shirts are darker colors)?

    1979 hz 253 stromberg issues

    Did that tonight, but only reset the top plate as such. I think that i may take it apart and give it a bit of a clean see if that makes a difference!!

    1979 hz 253 stromberg issues

    Hi all, my neighbour has an issue i have been helping him with on his 1979 hz kingswood 253. It has a stromberg ww 2 barrel carburettor, and the other day it had a fuel leak on the accelerator pump plunger, so replaced the plunger and the top plate gasket while i was at it. Car started and revved well, but when he drove it i the morning, the revs surge at a certain throttle position, and when it does that it seems to idle very low and stalls. Once restarted, the car runs well again, then it seems randomly repeats the process. Is there any one who has experience with these carbs/cars that can offer suggestions for area to look at?
  13. I think i use the black, i will check shortly Edit: i have a full set of new red circle pads here if you want, i have no use for them
  14. saw this thread and its something i have been meaning to post for a while!! currently restoring 2 old roadbikes, a 1954 DKW RT250/2 & a 1955 DKW RT250/2, one being my dad's (the 1955) and the other mine. if you haven't heard of DKW's before, have a look, they did a fair bit...especially with 2 strokes It's been very slow progress, and hopefully will have the 1955 getting assembled soon (dad has more cash than i do, so he goes first). Have mocked everything up to see what we have/don't have then pulled everything apart. pulled the motor apart which had supposedly been "rebuilt" before, but i think the rebuild went as far as a can of paint... have had the fork legs repaired and re-chromed, looked like they had spent some time on the bottom of the ocean!! currently the crank cases are away being water blasted. we had soda blasted them here, but decided that water blasting would be better for what we are planning to do. pics of what has happened so far: and what they are supposed to look like:

    Is this legal?

    Last time I looked into it the rule was 300mm between indicators inside to inside. May have changed, but I don't think cops would really pick on it, a lot of bikes in the bush don't have indicators fitted.... Edit: just looked up on the federal vehicle standard sight and they say Position: In width - one on each side of the vehicle www.legislation.gov.au/details/f2009c00579/html/text#_toc235592112
