    The GTS is one of those stories. It was in Saturdays paper as non runner for $2500. It had not been started for 20 years. Changed the oil, plugs and cleaned the carbs. 2nd kick and fired up and has been going ever since, well the last year or so.

    I was having coffee with owner this morning. The only thing he has replaced is the tacho cable inner. The owner looks a bit like Baza as well. The ashtray is for his rollies

    All my road bikes are older than 25, some much older. Here's some of the nicer ones. I will sell off a couple shortly buy a new HD and a DR650. Working on them cosntantly is becoming a drag due to limited free time.

    Hi Baza

    Not sure yet, the least gay as I can buy which is rather difficult these days :) :) Most probably a FXDWG.

    You mean stock standard with footpegs in the 'normal' position, not familiar with Harley models :deal

    Ah a Dyna sport. Had one of the 1st TC's into Aus in 99. AWESOME bit of kit. Mine did Darwin to Brisbane a few times. Will have to dig out pics. I actually prefer riding with FWD cotrols but having a mid peg option is great too.

    Sunday morning has rolled around, Time to pop on down to Salamanca SQ to see who else might have shown up for a coffee and a chat, even maybe a ride.

    About 70 bikes from a 1199 Pangale to HRD to Zundapp. Some thing for every body.
