Congratulations 3legs! Always great to see a project get finished and come out so well. That will turn some heads.

Nice Job!

3legs, just wanted to pass the good vibes on on your build

I picked up a GT750 and was going to take the 4LS off it for another bike project! Just couldn't do it when it came time to take it off .
Sold it off so it could be kept as a complete 4LS Kettle. Looking at your bike
tells me I did the right thing!

Nice work!

Thanks guys. Damn you Ray. How could you tell. Trust me it would be the first good trophy if I won one. I usually get rat bike or hard luck awards

I've picked up some 'best engineered' for Leigh's work. My old things never get a look in, far too unfinished. or maybe just that I try t use them and that shows?

And if that is true, I hope you do win the trophy this year but never again.

This is my Brother in laws Gt 750 Alex .
Runs sweet as ,he still rides it most weeks .I think he still has a lot of spare parts for it .
When i had my bike wrecking yard i gave him a near complete but torn down gt 750 for spare parts .
I showed him your sidecar set up as he has a dicky knee and this might be a option to keep him riding , he loved your set up it but said he would not put a sidecar on his as he likes to ride it as is ,even with the dicky knee




Cheers Ian

Cool. Love the spider web sticker. My other bikes would have real one on them

One day they will get restored but I have to start on my GT550 project.

Picked up the sidecar axle nut cover today with the Suzuki logo milled into it. Looks good. I was going to paint the "S" but I think I will leave it.

Here's the photo.



Later

Talking

Far too flash. Rat with a gold tooth?


re VJMC Rally - booked in Friday & Saturday nights at the 'rally hub' caravan park. Looking forward to it.

We can get our strokers just at the back of the pack, load 'em up with oil in the 'zorst and then blast by, smothering them all with two stroke juice! It's one of my favourite things when there are those hardly dangerous things in big groups, like toy runs etc. They just piss me off with their 'look at me, I've got a Harley' & 'we ride Harleys, so we are out front, don't get in our convoy' attitude. Wannabe wankers.

Sorry, off track.

Nice machining. Bloody nice. Little details that will have all the old buggars ooing and ahhing.


Hey, Leigh. You got access to a CNC machine???
