  1. well at least businesses can re-open after to a point after today...unfortunately the bikes stay in lockdown a bit longer...hang in there troops..we will be riding this summer at some stage
  2. mate I am no mechanic but I think it is illegal to use the word "bottom end" and "85cc" in one sentance ....there is only one way to ride an 85cc...and it ain't at the bottom end....get a 150 ...what do your kids ride if you are doing an 85?
  3. so to bump this topic... how you all travelling....? what are you expecting from uncle dan....on sunday? employed or no longer....on job keeper....?
  4. yep 24t...i reckon that is when I did it...even longer.... but they knew I had lost my licence maybe 15 years before...on a rd250lc h...who didnt..lol so i went straight onto a full licence...half guessed the learners license as I had KFI re braking distances etc...common sense really... anyway rob...get your learners license and you are more than welcome to join us lot...
  5. yep beeaye.. you will also need to do a course to prove you know what you are doing...its about $500 halfa day including test and permit...the course is geared to road bikes,,,,but i did the old 2 finger on brake and clutch and the blokes know when they watch on the figure 8 track.....just pass that test and you are away...get that mate and we will see you soon...btw rec reg a minimum
  6. so 80hrs x a modest $40 (cashy rates) as you know what you are doing plus costs.....yeah.. its a love job and pride of workmanship stuff...cudos to all you lot who restore
  7. welcome aboard rob...keep a look out for rides and camps....except gypsy's when he organises....lol 😘 to you mark
  8. gotta have a giggle...how many dads who have taught their kids how to ride...now struggle to keep up...until they are strong enough to pick their bikes up over logs etc?
  9. that is mint mate...or more old day and my vintage term...filthy.... dunno if you will...but have you looked into what you could sell it for....in relation to your time and costs...just interested to know if you blokes do these out of love and respect for its heritage via your folks or to maybe make a few $$$$
  10. ahhh the IT series...ridiculous torque and power with drum brakes....just like all those oldies...lol...how did they stop? but we did...
  11. best friend already gypsy😜 straight to goughs bay....do not past go
  12. agreed shane...OP has rec reg so by definition he has a light on the bike....well its an exc ...so has all the bits...my point being that most ride during the day so provided there is a light attached with rec rego...all good it doesnt have to work unless the boys in blue are very by the book....your mate had a motocrosser...first error if it doesnt have a plate... i have 2 motorcrossers for my kids...they both have rec reg...we have been pulled over at neerim... the sx250 didnt have a light or rear brake light FFS...all the boys care about is the plate on the back...that covers their freckle VICROADS wise..ohhh and pass their attitude test....don't be a smart arse
  13. lights dont matter too much mate...as long as you got the plate....and you arent horribly lost... lol....a;ll good...see you on a ride soon
  14. Some chick called Jane Barnes has been strumming a few tunes in lockdown in an effort to spread some love and relief to us all...especially to us viccos.... anyway turns out she has a pretty tidy lead singer....back up....special show ups by some character called diesel..... don't know who the left hander is but he goes well... I gotta say I say the chisel reunion tour around 10 years ago..thought janes back up singer shouted too much...there are 100+ songs janes band has performed...visit some bloke called jimmy on facebook and if you cant shed a tear...you are dead from the feet up i was wrong when this happens...jimmy...you still got it mate...I apologise and my favourite....
