  1. I could just have my RLTdar on full alert... ;) Im sure there will be forumers who wonder who the hell i am as its been a long time since I posted on a watch forum at all, just soooo busy with other things watch and bike related sadly. :/
  2. Vindication! hahaha :D Question is... do they look better aged or as designed...? more character in the aged piece i reckon.
  3. Ive said it before, I hate scooters.... but I do love the NSU. So coool. Get it back on the road and enjoy it I say! :D

  7. Really good progress Paul, not far to have it back on the road now :)
  8. Well I promised... and then it took ages to deliver... hmmm.... Never underestimate the slog that goes into such a task is what I say, I sure did when I originally professed that I would have the updates done in a week... oops... it took more like 3 months! I'm pleased to say Ive finally got the story of the RD421LC fully updated til where it is now on my website, phew! My RD350LC 421cc Athena I have also condensed and updated, rewritten and improved and put my 1985 F1 YPVS on my website as well. The story of that bike can now be found by clicking this link: Jon's 1985 RZ350 that was a RZ250 YPVS F1 ....and the full site (with more upgrades - R6 shock / Zeel info / links etc etc) is here: Full 2smoked.com website
  9. In the pic above the creation is not finished, it has a stay for a rear guard, tho I bet it wont be very long. Id love that bike over here, would be good in our climate :)
  10. Looking good! love these tyres and the lines work really well. Going satin black and red?
  11. seems ok value to me, grab it! I had a few holy grail parts that I never fitted, and sold on when i sold my car. NIB Pop out rear windows and also a set of brand new anti roll bars that were the last set eibach made, sigh. Both those sold for silly money on ebay back in the day :/
  12. Did some digging and found this info on my old car... old quotes, but hey there it was... I loved that car and wish i still owned it :( But, all is not lost, I now own its modern equivalent... a brand new Polo Gti. :D
  13. A thought? Are you also going to go back to small bumpers?
  14. LOL Mark the GTI, especially the 16v, was a much more soulful car than the 1.3... I fitted a turbo technics conversion with Stealth racing injector setup to my Freg 16v 3dr... superb and very very fast car... pics are on here somewhere... small bumper, helios blue. Wish i had brought it with me here :(
  15. Excited to see this one Bond, like you I dont get the slammed look at all.
  16. Ive had a squeezebox touch for years, it is superb. But, the remote got broken so Ive now got an ipod touch running it. The software isnt quite as good, but its not bad. Either way, if you can find a touch I think its a lot cheaper than a sonos...
  17. Good to hear its moving forward Paul. I remember some VW engines had the same breather issues and the 'fix' was to stab a screwdriver thru the gauze, simple and very effective. Will be interesting to hear what you think after not having driven one of these for so long and also with all the mods done. :)
  18. Thanks Chris, I have more updates to that story to add next week, and one final push should see that project completed and on the road... I can't wait to ride it! It's going to be a beast! :D
  19. Great to hear from you Mark, and Im pleased you like it. I agree, we may have had no money, no phones, no text and not much else, but we had a lot of fun, some of it innocent as well ;) :D Yep, Ive fixed the MT250 heading now, will be up in the new version when its loaded early next week, which will hopefully bring up to date the LC421 build as Im frantically adding more content and fixing the small bugs. ;) Glad you liked the MT250, its a cracker. I just need to sort the jetting and I can give it a rant, but it is a bit nice to get dirty in the woods now... hmmm... what to do... The MT250 I sold was a totally original one, with keys and a runner... just rusty for being left outside in a paddock for years. It went like the clappers but was a big ugly. My mrs called it the swamp bike. Originally i was going to restore it, but I just didnt have the time as you can imagine. LOL I still have my '82 XL500R project... its in bits in boxes, it was too hard to get parts for and I am slowly gathering bits n bobs, but then the RD and RZs came along and I got caught up in that... with the SL and a few DTs and other things along the way. There is a Vespa in there isnt there? I did own one once and thought I might have put a pic in there, maybe not... it wasnt a good one LOL
  20. Thanks guys! Loving thoise 500s, visious tho they would be to ride, Id still love a go of course! :) Haha Andy, nothing lowly about driving a car, I do it everyday. There is a more connection with a bike as you use all your limbs to make it work, and youre more in tune with the environment as youre out there in it, not wrapped in the car's body, but cars can delight too... maybe I should do a car site? Ive owned and rebuilt enough of those over the years too LOL!
  21. Haha, meet you half way, Not quite sure where that would be but maybe wear a flak jacket and a helmet? the food would be good tho :)
  22. Sorry that was me, I was fixing a bad link that a local friend pointed out and had to reload the homepage, should be up again now :)
  23. Ive been quiet for a while as I've been doing other things, but what I have done is try to combine a bunch of motorbike projects I had ongoing (and some I had done years back) into a single website as a place where anyone can read them as many of the forums they were on were members only, plus a bunch of other hopefully useful things about restoring bikes etc... Ok, be gentle its not finished, and there are some errors, but its a start. I will add more as I get time, but for now you should be able to read up on some of your old time favourites without the pics getting unloaded by those @#$%& at Imageshack etc. So, off you go if youre keen to get oily... For the full 2smoked experience, click here for 2smoked.com ...Enjoy!
  24. Im here now... but i reckon this is all sorted now... am i right?! :D the whole point is that 31 isnt not equally divisible, so to get the date to line up at 3 the start point is in one place and to do it at 9 its somewhere else... hence many 'destro' ploprofs got built as guys doing put togethers couldnt work out why their date didnt line up so just reversed the watch and then it did, so they just left it. Even some quite qualified watchmakers did that, yet on the omega parts book for the 1002 there are clearly 2 date wheels. HTH! oh and im mostly ignoring Mel... here is a pic for ya mate...
