    Just got a good deal on a complete rv90 rear wheel and tyre .
    Looks like 21x7x10 quad front tyre fits
    Might be time to finish the swingarm jig ,build a bench for the lathe and pull the sheet off the project that has been sitting on a bench for 6 months.

    Hey Baza

    The K460 came in and was fitted and balanced by MotoHub Motorcycles at Castle Hill - Great service and Price :clap

    Looks nice and chunky :thumb

    [​IMG]

    It fills the rear guard nicely. Now I just have to get it off the stand and have a sit on it . . . just to see if I fit -

    Col, Im starting to taste that beer :freaky

    Something about this creation reminds me of a PW50! Maybe the white alloy wheels with blue bodywork! Here's your new challenge, Pezz, work in some actual PW50 parts!

    Don't think you'll be dissapointed with the ability of that tyre Pezz, I've found them to be reliable in all conditions - including wet clay! :clap
    Just wish they'd make them in a few more sizes, 120x18" would be good! :wink:

    I was going to fit this DR600 headlight shroud?

    The front guard needs to be mounted a little further forward

    So after lurking for ages I've decided to join in.
    Please bear with me as I learn the ropes. :wink:

    Perry great to see your rear tyre came in. Looks the part fitted now.
    Let me know if you need a hand with anything & I'll drop over.

    Welcome to the insanity of it all Dave!

    Just remembered, speaking a mate on the weekend and he has an IT250 coming up for sale soon, its the drum barke model, probably '83. Its a good runner and registerable, but the wiring is missing, I'd expect the light coil system thingy may be missing too. He wants a grand for it so it fits into the Scrapheap budget. PM me and I'll track down his number if yer interested.

    Oh its in Mudgee.

    Cheers
