I thought I would add this here so it doesn't get lost

This bike was owned of my old brother’s friend BITD and I use to race it in the Jr Cruisers class here in NSW 1982-83. I was a bit of a cruiser slut and rode anyone’s cruiser who would let me. I liked this bike and when it was found I grab it.

It is a Super LA 24 made in Australia. Only 5 made. I have been in contact with the manufacture and they still have the number one frame and will be rebuilding it soon. The forks were bent and hope to straight them. Super LA as you might know was Queensland based company which built lots of frames in the 80’s (alloy and Crmo)

The bike has been restored with most of it is original parts just cleaned.

So I took these today enjoy

Got talking to PaulK last night at the DC BMX night about monoshockers. I am wondering how many incarnations of Repco Monoshockers there are out there. This one is called Master Sports. Any others out there.

Hey Kurt
Ill send some pics tonight.
Death Sauce eh. I decided to wipe the bottle clean under the tapin the sink. I then washed my hands clean with soap and scrubbed them. Later that night I was watching tv and wiped some eye snot away from my eye. Within a flash I was screaming in pain, couldnt open my eye and ran to the bathroom. After 10 minutes flushing my eye out using water and a shot glass I started to worry and rang Nurse On Line. Luckily at the 2 minute mark all the pain went away and I got my vision back.
I washed and scrubbed my hands twice more with hot water and rubbed them dry with some paper towelling and relaxed.
Just before bed I went to the dunny. Guess What?????
May your camel catch a thousand fleas you nasty nasty man Kurt.
No havent tried to tast it yet but I have this friend......

LOL John. I believe I did say "make sure you wear gloves". I wasn't joking. An evil, evil substance - and not nearly the hottest in their range any more... The Mega-Death sauce you have there has a rating of 550,000 scovilles. Their make-you-bleed-out-your-butt-and-gasp-for-mercy limited edition sauces have scoville ratings in the millions and come in a pre-melted bottle and you have to sign a waiver to get them. They sell out within a couple of hours of release and if you can get a bottle for $300 US you've done well...

The Master-Sports just looks like a Repco with different stickers to me. I think the frame on its own is a Crossrider II - Where's Christian - he knows his Crossriders.

Anyway - here's you pics...

Here'a what I've got. I thought one of Reece'a mates had one the same with original Repco Stickers, but I may have been mistaken.
I've got a sheet of those "Master Sports" stickers that I found years ago; what type of bikes did they used to make (I was going to use them on a chopper/low rider type frame)?
