Your life can't be that sad that you'd contemplate reading this thread...
Niiiiice! Lovin' the plate on the body.
You wouldn't believe the trouble I had getting the chick at the transport department to issue those
I think it was the FYYFF sticker that I gave her that did the trick.
Ozzies they are apparently all free spirits more so than we Americans.DB
Ok , that one's out of the way.
Now to get back to this pile.
Bitumen sniffer ?
Off road mutt ?
Hot rod ?
Park a D9 dozer on it ?
Fuck Loaded ?
hasta la vista
Aye... Tener un buen viaje y viaje seguro....
They are good people
They'll likely thank you for your kind wish of safe travels , as do I.
I'm a little disappointed that not even one Fuck Loaded vote was cast.
OK , seeing as no one stepped up to the plate I've had to go and make one of those pesky executive decisions.
After much thought ... who am I kidding ... I'm going with hot rod with a hint of mutt
Tank and side covers stay. Everything else , seat/tail , fairing , panniers and top box are history.
Mutt is definately the way to go. Just look at mine. Mine is a junkyard dog. Getting rid of the fairing and head light alone will shed nearly 15 kgs of weight and you won't have to keep repairing the fairing bracket that bolts to the headstem. If you don't do much night riding then an old single H4 headlight is perfect.
G'day Alex. Actually I quite like yours in all its incarnations.
Just went a had a brief chat with the bike.
For a german she took it well when I suggested to her that shedding some kilos may not be a bad idea if we're gonna get frisky in the dirt.
Settled on 14" rims with whitewalls ... need to make a new adapter for a 5 stud on the rear of the bike.
This rig is really coming together nicely and it is going to be beautiful. Thanks for sharing your build with us along the way as it is much appreciated.
Continued success in getting her ready for the road
G'day Doc' , welcome back.
Is that your Ute in the background of the picture of the Harley rig? Looks pretty nice, is it a 56? I didn't know how far back they went, I think the first El Camino here in the US was 59 or 60.
love that guard on the outfit, where did ya get that from, looks plenty strong with the lights in great position
Trailer supply place. It's just a round 185 mm wide guard for a 10" wheel. Clears a 15" tyre.
If you want those lights you had better break out the grinder and welder.
Hell no , not mine. You'd need a tetanus shot if you got closer than 10 feet to that one.
It's a '62 Holden (GM). We got the first local produced one in '48.
This is a '48 with a top chop.
cool, is that your place?
I thought it was a Holden, the front end looks like a 55 or 56 Chevy, I think they may have sent the dies to Holden after they were done with production in the US. (I worked for GM for 30 years but don't know Holden's history very well.) That would be a pretty unique classic car over here no matter what condition its in.
