    That'd be a hard life for the clutch on a 400!
    1984 Katana 7/11 - done at last!

    1982 GS450E - not quite stock

    It has just been delivered after a 5 week wait. I really want to get out and go for a ride but of course the battery is flat. Really not sure about the mural. I get what the meaning is but..........

    The bike is very far from original and the purest will hate it. But what has been done looks be exceptional workmanship.

    Once I have cleaned it I will post a heap of pictures as I would like to identify all the different components that went in to building this setup.

    As soon as the battery is charged I will download a permit and start my apprenticeship with a fang around Golden Bay (providing the rain holds off)

    Tom, COMON GIVE IT A GO, wouldn't have stopped you 40+ years ago. Learning to ride your new tricycle in the rain congers up all sorts of images, mostly hair raising ones, take care, cheers Ian.

    Tom,
    Wet, greasy roads are now your joy, not at all to be feared.

    Before you hit the twistys do some circle work I a carpark or paddock, large circle increasing speed till you appreciate just when the chair will lift.

    Enjoy John

    Thanks John. I have actually purchased some cheap cones used for soccer training and have a reasonably sized car park just up the road so I can easily practice the circles. The book you kindly sent me is really great reading and has dispelled a lot of myths. Just have keep remembering the book was written as you said for the LH drive or RH mount chairs.


    Going to for rego inspection for the 28th October. Before hand I will ride on permits.
