What do you reckon could be done with that then?

I'm thinking a V4 dirt bike might be a bit interesting.
Sounds Perfect Joe

Be sure to post some pictures of the build

Another Four Cylinder Trailbike, a Honda CB 550.

G'day Pezz,
Unfortunately I don't recall the details of this bike, but I saw it at the Honda Four Rally in Gatton earlier this year.
He said his mates told him he was on drugs when he started building it, but it was very well done, to the point of looking factory built. It's almost too pretty to actually get it dirty...

That is so nice

Just the style I wanted to create . . . . but torn between function over form . . . being an airhead rider and all :)

Thanks Jason

i got an old CB250 twin. put some knobbies on that and raise it a little, would be a fairly good bike. revs hard, and is not slow by any means.

It even looks like a XL100 from the side

tEAM oRPHANAGE...?

tREV... mate... do people just turn up at your doorstep with these things... or what?



Is that a Peston Pretty tank...? Oooh that takes me back... Dad had a trick TS 185* 'Zuki with a PP tank on it...







(that is if you could ever refer to a TS 185 as "trick"... but you get what i mean...? ).

No idea on the tank.

I picked it up on Ebay about a week ago, just a random bid thing, had no idea what to do with it when I won it.

I took it out to where I have all my old bikes stashed and went to take my old DT250 for a run,but she didn't want to run.

Had a quick look in the tank and saw it was full of rust, so I went out today and fitted up that tank.

It holds a bit over 15l and feels pretty good on the bike so I'm happy...

I'm pretty sure it is a Peston Pretty (or is it Preston Petty... not sure?) tank, they were all the go back in the DT1, TS185, XL 178 era...

Hey tREV, with 15 liters on board that bike is looking good for the "riding old dungers in the desert" concept that HUNSTA was all revved up about a few years back...? Some new life in an old (but great) thread?

Hey!!! I had a mid 70's TS185 with a 210 kit in it and it was TRICK

As well as all the local hard work it did, on one particular trip I rode it from Canberra to Yackandandah then back to Canberra via Wagga.
On another occasion, I rode it from Canberra to the Sunshine Coast and back to Sydney.

Now for a 210cc smoker - that is trick

BTW tREV...good work on the projects
