Wolds Run on my Z900

Weather was stunning today, so took my Z900 on the Wolds Run to the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre: it was great, the place and surrounding roads were packed with all sorts of biking nostalgia: old Brit stuff, loads of 70's 2 stokes, and a fair few modern bikes as well. Oddly though, I did no...

Re: My CBX build

Nice bike and a great starting point you have got there: look forward to more pics.
Ive had a couple of Insurance companies provide 30 day temporary cover notes based on VIN / Frame nos: curious, but who are you currently using ?

Well its a Kwak and its green and it was cheap !

Few weeks ago I bought myself a bargain, its the last model ZX9R, probably not be to a lot of folks taste, but 2 owners, silly low miles, very tidy and totally unmarked: oh and it goes pretty well too.

Re: Chrome Removal

Chrome Restoration Svcs at Coventry, are going to strip the chrome off a couple of old Z13 engine cases and then mirror poilsh them for me; I dont fancy de-chroming at home, think you need concentrated Hydrochloric (Muriatic) Acid and a big container.

Re: This years LIncs meets

Ted, at least the car park looked dry for you, when I got there about 11.00 the rain was just starting in earnest and the few hardy souls there, were taking shelter under the trees :( :rain .
On a positive note at least my Z900 ran perfectly after its prolonged winter slumber.

TT2018 launch video

I liked this - thought might be of interest https://www.iomtt.com/#video

Not sure why but the video needs dragging back to start - jumps to 1min 40 secs, so misses the best bit the start !

A quick smoke this morning.

Seems to have been bloody cold for so long and have hardly used the bikes, so wheeled the "Tidlers" out this morning to pollute the village. Not run them for ages, both struck up fist prod of the kick start, quick warm up and when they had cleared their throats had a bimble down the lane, ...

Hodna: Whitehouse - Samurider kits

Was on the Z1300 site, and a forum member was considering "customising" a Hodna CB1100 - with a Whitehouse conversion. Worth a look methinks. https://thekneeslider.com/an-update-on-the-cb1100-four-k10-kit-for-the-retro-cb750-look-from-whitehouse/ I checked out the link and thought (for a H...
