Amongst several things being exhibited or on display is Peter from Hoey Racing, who loves talking to people about their suspension problems. Plus a heap of old bikes...

Might see you there...

I think I'll pop up for an hour or so.

frame welding in Adelaide

thanks all ... got the Repco one :)

righto ... the new (to me) DR has a crack in the subframe ... just below the passenger footpeg. The bike's clearly taken a hit there and the member is a little bent up and in. Net result is that the front pipe mount isn't where it should be and the bum end of the header rubs aainst the shock spring. I need to find someone who can bend it back into shape and weld it up - or I suppose I could cut it and reshape it prior to getting someone t weld it back together.

So: recommendations for someone in Adelaide (I'm just north of North Adelaide) who does this kind of work?

Bit of a bummer - it's been welded, but not completely fixed - don't reckon th previous owner even realised the extent of the damage :( Airbox mounting tabs are busted too - I'm quite handy with epoxy and scrap bits of plastic though :)

cheers,
Slap

Jeez, not a good way to end a ride. Hope the healing process is quick.

Some nice trails below the Flinders....maybe you Green Triangle mob need to work out a time for a trip over here and meet up with some of us folks.....although Cougar says that might not be a good idea!!!!

Would you trust a man that makes his living from making silly commercials? I think your idea has merit.

Sounds like a pretty big crash. All the best for a speedy recovery.
