You guys must be sick of seeing another post by myself regarding my bike, but I don’t care and here is another!!!!
Well it’s Sunday the 19th of june and today my old mate Sid gave the old GB a service! I was pretty luckey as Sid pulled my baby apart and dialed in my ride!!! Thanks Sid!
Sid decided we needed to re condition the carburetor.
Tank off, Carb out, JimBeams insight, SHIT’S ALL GOOD
looking inside the Carb was like step back to 1988. Inside the Carb was looking dialed
A view down the carb jet!!!
Sid uses a kitchen pot to keep all the parts together wile rebuilding the carburetor. That’s smart.
Seized idle adjustment bolt needed removing!with some BIC heat
Carb out JimBeam’s onnnn! Sid had the carb out and serviced in about 1 x 440mml JimBeam.
Servicing the petroleum valve! JimBeam On,
These are the top caps from the motor. In this photo we are polishing them with some some emery cloth! shit’s dialed with lath at hand.
She had a loose mount so Sid sorted it with a new bracket.
Mountain dew made a pretty cool underground in a warehouse under roof over concrete with wood PINBALL skatepark!
to celebrate something they are making, couldn’t remember what.
we had the opportunity of checking it out before they opened it officially (thanks haimona, master of wizardry)
and it looks mega puppy with all the lighting and sound effects that goes off when you pass by and touch things,
like a real pinball!
it’s open for 3 weeks i think, somewhere in henderson in a warehouse. jus check on their website for the real low down
hi paul beadle and wazman and double down kfc!
Hey Dudes, sorry for the lack of post recently, should have a few killer bike checks coming up soon.
Here’s a little run down of things you can do in NYC if you like beer and vegan foods.
Also its banned in some states.
If you go shopping in manhatten be sure to check out this shop. The Lil Lebowski shop, yeah its a whole shop based around the movie, and the “dude” who runs it has long hair and wears a dressing gown. So rad!
after that you have to go bowling. We went in williamsburg at “the gutter”. The lanes were terrible but we bowled good?
there is lots of vegan places to eat, my favorite was B.A.D. BURGER which stands for breakfast all day burger, it never closes and has loads of vegan junk food.
but my favorite place (and my second favorite place of all time) was BARCADE.
I went as soon as they opened at 5 and drunk awesome beers till late.
Ps. My No. 1 favorite place is still NewMarket bowling.
After winning the auction for the GB400tt I need to get it! So the day after the auction I went up to Uncle Johnny’s and picked up the trailer. It was already full of trash so we stopped at the dump and unloaded some old building supplies. It was a pretty sweet drive down until!
We hit 90kph mark and hit a dip in the road. The cage door flew off and was being dragged along only held on buy the open close latch. F^%K it was dangerous!!!! Lucky for us we stopped and put the door in the car. But as a plus side having it sitting in the car gave me the idea to use it as a ramp to get the bike into the trailer.
I was pretty stoked to get the bike from another Tim and his partner Jo, who were super cool. Tim gave me the low down on the bike and we loaded it up.
Piss stop on the road between Taupo and Napier
On the road again, can’t wait to get on the road again, making music with my friends can’t wait to get on the road again. “The Great Willy Nelson”
The Honda-convoy, if you ever need a good car get one like this, Honday Accord you’re a fucking legend.
Napier pulled out some sweet weather for us.
On the five hour drive we stopped 5 times to change the strapping. The tie downs broke in half once and got two tangled twice. Lucky I bought a super long cable lock from the shop and manged to secure the rear end with it. Bex also got into it and pulled of some kind of sailor knot to get things in place. Word of advice buy the nice tie downs from the hardware store. After we got past Taupo the bike pretty much lay on its side but seamed to sit quit well.
We made it home and I rode the her today for the first time, STOKED
