A few from the weekend at the Scrapheap Adventure Ride

She seems really puzzled by that bike. Great stuff Pezz
That was a K100 built by Buckscreek for Scrapheap. Last year it was a sidecar, which had a little mishap on the way home, necessitating a few dyas in Hospital for the rider and passenger and a full rebuild for 2013.
Big favourite with the kids, my Molly at the back and my Grace beside her with the glasses and cap.
I was just sent this pic of me on my XR460/4 at Srcapheap 2013
Well after being asked how much this bike weighed, I went out and bought a set of $8.00 bathroom scales from K-Mart.
Front axle is 82kg and rear is 94kg making total mass of 176kg (388lbs)
I reckon I could lose a few kilograms with lighter rear guard, tail light and rack.
Looks like the old XR460/4 is up for another ride
Just have to retreive it from a motor museum and order some new float needles and seats. Hopefully it will use much less petrol. It leaked more than it burnt last year!!
Off to David Silver Spares with an order. These are $20 each, so $80 Plus shipping. I called the local Honda Dealer. $94 each :eek1 The guy apologised and said Honda Australia have 8 in stock . . . . reckon they will for some time
Well the mighty the XR460/4 has made it back to the Skunkworks after a 12 month hibernation in the Inverell Motor Museum
Time to get busy, pull the carbies apart and get it ready for the next crack in 3 weeks time
Well I have been a bit busy over the last few days getting ready for this years Scrapheap Adventure Ride. I have to ride with Charley's FZwhy250 !!!!
FZR250 with TM250 suspension Front and Rear
Wednesday night I pulled the carbs after the new needles and seats arrived from 4into1.com
While I was in there I pulled the main jets out that is was running the 85 mains, up from the stock 75, but it was too rich
I went to the jet kit I bought and it was missing the 80s. it had a second set of 75s then 85, 90, & 95s. I put the 75s back in but wasnt overly happy about that.
I was chatting with a mate Malcolm, who is an old toolmaker and he said he had a full set of number drills and we could drill out the second set to make a set of 80's So I grabbed the jets and headed over. The drills needed were much smaller than he thought.
After 30 minutes of measuring we worked out that 80 jets would be 0.8mm. Off to the engineering shop and bought 2 for $10, when back and Malcolms the two bits were different sizes. But we had the 0.8 that we needed.
So out with the pin vice and drilled out the second set of 75s to create the 80's
All installed and ready to go back into the bike
can I be the first to say: "this looks f*cking weird ... but I actually dig it"
This thread always makes me grin. That FZWhy250 is great.
Read this thread from start to finish last night.
Wow there were really were some High's & some very Low Low's during the build weren't there?
Fantastic to see that patience & perseverance won out eventually - You created a special 'Yahjuu' there that's for sure!!
Loved finally seeing it the other week too
What are your plans for the 2015 Scrapheap Rally - Give Yahjuu another crack at it or run with the current CB 250 Tiddler Rally project?
Will http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1021340 this be the link to post build stuff for 2015 or is it just a general thread & a new 2015 Scrapheap Thread be started?
(Still getting the hang of how this forum / threads all works :huh)
It will be on Scrapheap 2015, so will the mighty CB250
The link is for the Builders thread, and we will be starting a new 2015 Scrapheap thread when we announce the details of this year ride
I came across this thread this morning and have now read it front to back, I have a lot of time on my hands at the moment as I had surgery in February and I'm sat at home most of the time.
I was really enjoying the build and all and then I came to this video and just sat there trying to hold back the tears. I am a left leg amputee and ride enduro bikes and I've been feeling sorry for myself as I can't get out and ride at the moment.
I take my hat off to you and thank you as well as you've just given me all the inspiration I need to get back out there and ride
Thanks for your reply
Be good to see you back out there riding again
I have sent you a PM
