Have you made inquiries with the seller if he/she is open to a trade/part trade ?

What's the worst they could say


A serious amount of work went into that. The front disc is brilliantly executed. The price is well within reason.

I can think of worse ways to get used to a new outfit , a better one , not so much.

Hey Mr Mellow, I met a guy riding/driving one of those at Mt Garnet caravan park last August on my way to Cape York for the 2012 OCR. I had seen pictures of them before but never one in the flesh. He was a bloke from Germany or Sweden or somewhere from that area touring around Australia in/on it. I wish I could remember his name. Unfortunately I didn't take any photo's. I kept thinking I would hate to be in it when being passed by an Aussie road train. Scary stuff. Good on him though.

Quick, quick, someone buy my bike so I can jump on a plane and fly over to buy it.

I suspect there a good chance you'd have a different opinion by the time you got to Kalgoorlie.

Made me up a receiver hitch for my Yamal so I could carry another spare along with me.


Can't pull my HF Tag Along until my warranty runs out.

Other than that, I like the non-rigid axle.
