    Fellas I'm out, as was probably noticed by the lack of posting...... I have too much going on in life right now to do this ride or part of it. I had considered going to the corner with you lot and turning back from there, but alas, not to be.

    What I do have is one adv ready postie for sale. and a couple of testicles, don't seem to need them now either, and they are in full control of the other half.

    Reason for selling - too much going on in life to do the coast to coast, too many projects
    Price - $1250 or very near offer
    Located - Bateau Bay, NSW 2261


    Extra info -
    1. 1mm oversize bore
    2. debaffled pipe
    3. jetted to suit stock debaffled pipe
    4. pitbike pipe included, noisy farker that one.
    5. new valves, and clean-up of ports
    6. new air filter, plus spare
    7. new 3.00x17 tyres and tubes, one tube was patched after pinching when fitted.
    8. new chain, new sprockets front and rear, 15 tooth fitted, 16 tooth included
    9. Katmandu panneirs and 2mm aluminium pannier rack
    10. botchjob 4mm clear acrylic screen
    11. handguards off something or other
    12. XR350 tank
    13. BMW r75/6 rear shocks - rides nice, stock included
    14. botchjob black sheepskin seat cover. fits great just not fixed to seat
    15. KTM 250 exc front guard, trimmed (hacked and filed!)
    16. stock front guard included
    17. Rego till 22 May
    18. LED's not included, unless you can twist my arm - hard. cost me $400
    19. all stock parts included
    Choke has been decommissioned. reason for me getting it, screws holding choke in came loose, jammed valves, previous owner couldn't fix, hence full head job. has no probs starting, just couple more kicks

    I'll even throw in a milk crate if required

    It's done a 350k shake down, all good.


    My effort and loss is your gain

    Mods I will put this in the For sale section, just seemed appropriate to start here.

    It took me a while But I got onto Jim @ Jims Mechanical in Willuna. He seemed to think we are ferk'n mad, But he is said yep no problems.
    So If you want to contact him (Jim) yourself and sort out the details his no is 0427 994894. The other bloke involved with the Buisness is ........( i cant remember) But his No. Is 0409 652787.

    I reckon I'll send through a couple of tubes, maybe a tyre.

    Just have to work my work out, I'll be finnished here soon, but a normal job, I dont have,,,
    But either way, Any of the Qld crew keen for a camp out bullshit sesion, can have it at my joint if ya keen.

    Thanks for the tip.. I'll head in and see them on the way. Will the lumpier cam take much from the reliability? I'm new to Postie mods so please bare with me.

    Thanks Will. Just about to hop on a big aluminium bird to head for the big smoke... The ride home should be an adventure in itself...

    I am curious - what route do you take to get to Sunny Q from NSW that keeps you sane on a postie. Is this inland, up the coast or through the bush?

    How long will it take to do the 2,000 kms?

    I had a C90 handmedown in my really younger days - would sit on 100-110kmh all day. Was ridden by a 12 y.o. illegally on back roads around Griffith, with things like KDX175 and Can-Am 175 Bombadier, XR200, etc. Aagghhh. the old days.

    Anyway - what you guys do with posties are awesome :thumb
