COASTY
You want pics Luis? Heres a couple.
A Mongoose Expert (sorry Anthony) for a mate at work.
A very dead monoshock seat I'm gonna rebuild!!!!
And some shockie fork bits in the middle of a rebuild (done now)
I wont be able to make the trip to Terrigal either. Quite bummed but the car comes first. (see last pic)



v8ute
hey coast

at least that goose is more my vintage, lol
and also, i think you need to fix your uni bud, it looks a bit broke
QuicksilverBMX
I see that old seat has those optioned "nut holders"
Jarvi
That seat is not only dead, I think it's been buried for a few years as well.

If it's photo time then here's something I was working on over the weekend. Can't show any more as it has canti mounts and isn't a looptail.

OldSkoolRoy
MMMMMMMMM Pattersons....i could drool over both of those for a while. LOL. I DO like Pattersons!! It's a sentimental thing cause i used to race one.
COASTY
Ya think??
$600 later ( ihad other stuff done too) and there goes terigal trip down the poo chute. Unless I sell my trailer.
QuicksilverBMX
Hey Glenn is that mongoose soaking in that oxalic acid stuff?
OldSkoolRoy
Oh is that what your doing to that mongoose Glen....i thought you were trying to drown it!!!! Hahaha..
COASTY
Yeah it is Reece. And yeah I'd like to Roy. I'm building it up for a guy at work that wants a chrome bike to ride to the shops on! lol
It seems to work well. I need to make the mix a bit stronger though. I done some steel cranks a while back and they turned out awsome.
COASTY
Hey Reece is this you in this pic?
OldSkoolRoy
Hey Glen....that's Reece in the wagon. What do ya mean which one?? ThAT ONE...THERE^^^^THERE^^^^no wait it's that one...or is it that one?? hehehe.....
rsrichie
Its amazing how long those que's into the Holden Mechanical repair shop gets.


Sorry glenn couldnt resist.
QuicksilverBMX
Well thats my car, but that pic was taken after I sold it.


I dont own it anymore, sold it after 5 years.
I have a VP Berlina at the moment to bunky around in but I am about to get a VY.
Mr.BMX
Coast VL:
How do you think you'll restore that old seat?

Are you gonna patch/fill/weld a few plates in place? or try to build a whole new base then re-upholster?

Just interested to know what others are trying with these old things, i'm sure most of us have 1 (or 10) rusted out seats hehehe.
HowardinOz
I'm not gonna bite!!!

Howard
HowardinOz
More time on the Burb than bikes at present! Bought all the software and am running logs and tuning in the blower....with a little help from a guy in Brissy!
COASTY
Marty, Thats pretty much what I'm going to do with the seat. I could try and find another one but this'll be more fun! Just patch a bit here beat a bit there. Just like panelbeaters used to do.
Good stuff Howard, make sure we get to see the dyno printout.
KOSY-MOTO
Hey Glenno... may I ask why you have a Goose in a mini spa? hehehe
Kurt.
Glenn likes his Gooses. Maybe too much.

Next it'll be music, candlelight, flowers and booze.

And then we DON'T want to see the next spa shot!!!
KOSY-MOTO
Yeah Like to see that...hehehe.. LOL..
Jibba
hi guys,

I just recieved my pink tuff II's from the US and they are damaged, not happy Jan, to say the least, but also i was wondering having had absolutely nothing to do with pink tuffs back in the day, if the colour was a solid colour? as mine look like they have been white and someone has spray painted them pink and the paint hasnt stuck very well, its like they are white and pink mixed together not a solid good pink colour.

I would post pics of the damage but photobucket is down for maintenance.


Any light you guys can shed would be great.

Janelle
KOSY-MOTO
OH noo.. I've had the same problem.. they do get damaged in transit.. a real bummer
OldSkoolRoy
That doesn't sound good...are they a motely, patchy kind of colour. Sometimes tuffs can dry out ,being hydroberic. When i bought my new blue tuffs in 82' they had a similar effect...almost like they were kind of faded. A good dose of wd40 or similar may help[. Hard to tell without seeing them. I'm only guessing at the moment. I hope they aren't painted!!! that would really suck!!
KOSY-MOTO
OKAY OKAY.. how many of you guys are bidding on the Kossy?.. come-on own up! hehehe... YOUR lucky that I'm broke!.. zero money here!

Gimme gimme Killa Kossy!
OldSkoolRoy
No mun no fun!! The kos looks great....no bids from me
dugga
not me... I got no room for more bikes
QuicksilverBMX
I already have one, but that one looks nicer than mine!
QuicksilverBMX
$1276.00

Nice.
OZZYBMX
hey guys , as soon as the auction was listed i offered the guy $1000 to BIN but he knocked me back , i was only testing the water , it was only pick-up or organise your own courier and they are $$$ to lift a bike , wrap some cardboard round it and ship !

MAN ... i have no room for anymore bikes at the mo , what was i thinking !!!

............tunnel vision to kossy
QuicksilverBMX
My Kos was shipped from QLD for $46.00 by Aust. Post. It doesnt cost that much to ship bikes around Aust.
rsrichie
Anyone happen to remember who it was that found those sweet NOS madison frames from the factory or somthiing like that and posted a pic of them a while ago or does anyone remember what page the post was on, i have checked about 150 pages back and couldnt find them. any help would be apreciated.
v8ute
cmon howard, post a pic of your stuff bud, finished or not, or arent they worthy of a photo.

hope ya take the bait on this post, lol
Mr.BMX
Luis, why would you want ANOTHER kos? you got 5 already.

That Kos in Geelong only went up due to the moronic "early" bidders.....they'll never learn.
It could have just as easily sold for $500...oh well.
OZZYBMX
yeah mate , i know the postage price for bikes ... but that is them broken down , packaged (by you/me) and shipped auspost , the kos seller didnt want to do any of that , he wanted TOLL IPEC to rock up , wheel the bike down to the van and wash his hands of the whole matter ! i had a mbike shipped down from QLD to SA , it ran me $180 and the bike arrived with a scrape on the top bar !
OldSkoolRoy
NOOOOOOOOO...Luis!!! You don't have 5 Kos's...do you?? Hahaha....i gota see you collection one day. You must have some nice eye candy in the shed!!! LOL.
KOSY-MOTO
5kossy's!.. hahaha actually 6.5! So who was the lucky winner? anybody we know?

Hey guys,

anyone wanna swap a rear coaster brake blue tuff for a freewheel rear blue tuff?

HowardinOz
Nope V8...still not bitin'.
When I was cleanig up the red tuffs, young guy at work says "Oh, them old things....I've got a pair of blue ones". I replied "do ya want 'em" to which, to my delight he said "Nup, you can have 'em". So, now I have them.

Howard

howard...how do u clean ur tuffs? i got red that needs cleaning badly
QuicksilverBMX
so howard do you have a feewheel tuff in blue to trade for my cb?
QuicksilverBMX
That blue tuff is roys handy work, came up like brand new! Before i sent it to Roy it looked worse than this!
( i hope you took those before shots Roy!)
OldSkoolRoy
Opps!!! I just went through the digi camera AND i forgot to take the shots....sorry. Here's a coupl of old ones i've done.

Mr.BMX
Speaking of packaging/post/couriers and stuff....

Just reminding people to offer who's willing to pickup & resend bikes across OZ....

I'm in VIC and happy to pickup & re-package frames or bikes that the sellers wont do for ya...

Anyway, the offer's out there for future use ;-)
I'm hoping we can network something between all of us, so no matter which state a bike is in, we can be fairly sure that 'some' of us will pickup on our behalf.....

Any thoughts ????
Mr.BMX
Yep, the NOS Madisons are mine ;-)
grub
hey brian as i rode off i figured it might of been you
i couldn't tell who it was behind those tinted windows
congrats on the little one too. hope all is well

roy what on earth is that thing??
