Thanks for the kind words on the pics guys.....
More bad news today...
The lady on the next farm to dads came over to help dad clean the house. She saw dads gun. A shotgun with a mag and a choke on the end of the barrel. She rang the police. The police came out and confiscated his gun and asked him to go in to see a doctor under their instructions. Dad said no worries and did as they said cause he didn't want any trouble. They took his car licence off him too under doctors advice. I rang them and asked how he was to travel to the hospital to see mum or get to town to buy food. As you could imagine...the police backed up what they did as "the right thing to do" and that the rest wasn't their problem. I've contacted the R.S.L, and they can send the bus out there once a day for a trip to the hospital. We also got word today that mum is being transfered to a high care fasillity about 45 min. from dads house. I don't know if the R.S.L will run him that far away. So it looks like dad might have to sell the farm and move into the home with mum. Everything seems to be going down hill for mum and dad. Things just wont be the same for them ever again.

very sorry to hear oldskoolRoy and thanks for getting back to me!
OldSkoolRoy
Sorry prosight....i haven't even sent reece a pic of those monaro seat spacers. But while were talking about it...Reece...if you don't need those spacers, prosight has a use for them. Just let us know Reece and i can send them off to someone??? I've had them forever!!! I allways thought there was 8 plastic H peices to the set 4 large H's and 4 small H's. I can only find 4 large and 2 small. On a more bmx flavour...i got a Addicts sprocket for the Moosegoose yesterday. Looks real good!!! I'll get all the photo's up on here soon!!

AndyDiamond
Roy - you want cranks like these eh?



Mr.BMX
Hey Roy, hang in there mate.
One of lifes many challenges......
Mr.BMX
Hey Andy,
Whats that frame? is it a Tanjae or Titan? other?

Love the box too....SE !
Mr.BMX
To ALL Aussies....

In an attempt to create a semi-official "who's-got-what bmx parts" network, is anyone interested in providing their want/trade/sell lists?

Your lists would be compiled into 1 megalist, and either featured on a webpage, or sent out as a weekly mass email to everyone on the list.
Email would be sent out weekly, or, anytime a new addition adds to the list. (so, you could get an email almost daily).

I realise Jase tried this a while back on here and it got removed, so let's try again, but do it elsewhere...

Now's a good a time as any to start putting together a list of stuff you need or dont need, that will probably help someone else complete a build......especially with a few shows on the way in coming months/new year....

Anyway, if you wanna jump on the list, just email me your lists, or at least your email address to be put on the list anyway...
mrbmx@retro-riders.com

This can really work if we can get EVERYONE in Oz to contribute.

edit:
Please provide the username you prefer to be known as in the list, this could be your vintagename, ebayname, realname etc.

Marty.

What a great idea!!! I'm a bit scared that i will give away everthing. I don't have much...but i like what i got. Maybe a few bits i'm not useing may help out someone...Ohhhhh.....Ok....I'M IN!!! Give me the weekend ,and i'll draw up a list for you. Great idea!!!
Andy...that's the one's! MMMMmmmm GT cranks!!!
I got to know too....what frame is that???? Oh and Andy...i like your "FROM" at the bottom of the page. That would be the DEATH STAR!!!
Jarvi
Yeah it's not vintage but there is a bit of a vintage frame near the front wheel. Picked this up today after queueing(?) for four hours in four separate queues. Not really a GT fan but these are supposed to be pretty good and it's hard to argue about value when it was only $549 (RRP $1249). Also picked up a 24" cruiser as a birthday present for a friend of mine for $349 (RRP $849). She will have the best bike in the neighbourhood to chase after her son and in theory it's probably better than my race 24". Couldn't fit them both in the car though and hope the queue isn't as bad tomorrow. It was all part of the liquidation sale for The Bicycle Authority here in Melbourne.
