Nice score on the tyres Chris.
Comp IVs rock - don't put them on anything up to the end of '83 though - it's wrong otherwise.
Are they 1.75?
Crossrider - are they the tyres I sent you?
How are they holding up?
Road cycle guys are experts in mounting sew-ups.
I've heard stories of four guys trying to get one tyre on a rim - those things are tight!
Sep 1 2005, 05:33 PM
yeah, those are the one's Andy - sounds like fun....
Sep 1 2005, 05:44 PM
Let me know how they hold up.
Bloody rare tyres to say the least.
Sep 1 2005, 11:59 PM

Sep 3 2005, 02:36 AM
fletch looks like you've had a busy day! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for no rain tomorrow...!
mate ya gotta strip those [img] bits from your photobucket address, thats all your doin' wrong, then hit the "preview post" just to make sure it's all gonna work ok!
Sep 3 2005, 02:39 AM
ok .cool thanks,the cranks are 152s,so I rekon you could cut em down to 135s,we done that for harry
Sep 3 2005, 02:44 AM
i can't believe how short that chain looks - lol!
cut? as in hacksaw and reweld??
Sep 3 2005, 02:47 AM
Man that chain is short! What gearing is on the bike? Nice tires too!
Sep 3 2005, 02:49 AM
[/IMG] we just need a few sprocket screws,some bar end plugs,pad set and plate and shes ready mate
Sep 3 2005, 02:58 AM
gearing is 39 ,16,you cant put any bigger than a 40,theres also no sign of the cracks in the sidewall that andy had warned me about,the guy at the bike shop waited for me to come in,he needed a extra pair of hands,man were they a tight fit,I cant wait to see nick on it, rain? hope not
Sep 3 2005, 03:04 AM
you can redrill some pedal holes,then cut the rest off and round over
Sep 3 2005, 03:26 AM
sorry,but I love it
Sep 3 2005, 03:38 AM
It's very cool. With the cranks. I was told to get the same thing done, but to make sure the pedal hole was centered properly. They will be unbalanced if not done properly. I cant see it being too hard. Have a go and if you stuff it, buy some more.
Sep 3 2005, 03:41 AM
Are they Vortex bars? They look very similar to my Tobys bars.
Sep 3 2005, 03:50 AM
looks sweet fletch!
ok redrilling is no worries, I'll get a pair of tap's and sort 'em out, wasn't sure what you mean't.
i hope this little project didn't stop you gettin the young fellas down for some gate practice this arvo? plenty of kids down there- they had a big cleanup day hand sweeping the whole track etc. boyo is a bit worried about converting to a handbrake, but i think he'll be ok.
Sep 4 2005, 02:13 AM
I got bored this afternoon (fathers day?) and threw this together. Need some comp st tires and some decent brakes. It's for my son toby when he gets a little bigger.
This turned up on friday too. [ September 04, 2005, 04:14 AM: Message edited by: Coastvl ]
Sep 4 2005, 03:57 AM
oh yeah coastvl, i think you really wanted a wheelie machine for fathers day didn't you? come on admit it! lol.
Sep 4 2005, 04:03 AM
big thumbs up from boyo and myself go to crossriderozzy and andy diamond for getting the micro/mini together, we all had a great day! [ September 04, 2005, 06:20 AM: Message edited by: velocidad ]

Heads Up !!!!
Just clearing some stuff out, if it helps anyone ... Mr.BMX Cleanout Sale
Keep checking the link, i'm trying to keep adding stuff thru the week.
Sep 4 2005, 05:07 AM
Some good stuff there MrBMX.
Velocidad, does your little one sit down all the way around the track? My toby does and I've tried everything to get him to stand up. Any ideas anyone. He's built like a 8-9 year old (he's 5) and he'll kill the competition if he would just stand up. Maybe in time.
Sep 4 2005, 06:49 AM
hey coastvl,get your lil bloke to follow the other kids round,and try? to get him to watch some older kids,(6,7 yr)and show him what they do,my harry is 5 ,been racn nearly 12 months and he started off the same,now well if you seen him ride you would see what that time spend chasin his 2 bros aroundhas done,he flies, give him time and LOTS AND LOTS of encourgment,(spelling)
Sep 4 2005, 06:54 AM
velocidad,Im glad nick likes the bike,thats what its allabout,we didnt make it home till late,that trans gave out,back to the shop it goes, again!
Sep 4 2005, 07:31 AM
Thanks for the info. He follows our neighbour around (she's #1 aust) and he'll get it I'm sure. He's starting to a little. He can keep up when he sits, so when he stands up he'll fly. As long as he's havin' fun I'm not too worried. He's only been racing for 4 months too.
Sep 4 2005, 07:39 AM
if hes following her around,sounds like you beta get ready,and fun is the word, good luck
Sep 4 2005, 04:34 PM
I had no idea you intended to actually use the tyres on a rider so I'm glad the held up!
Glad to be of help and big props to Waza for my new rims
Sep 5 2005, 01:02 AM
Coastvl, yeah he's sitting - he has no choice coz he's stroking out because of the crank length vs' leg length thing! lol... early days for us, i'm just happy if he stays upright and has a smile on his dial atm!
Sep 5 2005, 01:03 AM
Andy, lmk if you have any more stashed away, I'm rooted if one blows!
Sep 5 2005, 01:16 AM
No - I have no more.
Lucky I had a pair!
Sep 5 2005, 02:13 AM

Sep 5 2005, 04:46 AM

Sep 5 2005, 05:32 AM
Thatâ€™s a familiar sight....round my place at least
Sep 5 2005, 05:47 AM
I went to my mums house and dug out my bike from when I was 13(22years ago) and let the restoration begin, its amazing what you can find at your parents house and there was more. [ September 05, 2005, 07:49 AM: Message edited by: Mattblack ]
Sep 5 2005, 05:51 AM
That's Gold bro!! what kinda bike? looks like Redline? yeah? Love those DX pedals and the Uni seat.. mmm yummo!!
Sep 5 2005, 05:53 AM
Good stuff Rohan. I remember that bike well. Should look good when it's done. Now tell your brother to let me fix his bikes up. Tell him to email me or something. I want to catch up.
Sep 5 2005, 05:55 AM
Its funny, we all had the same hubs on our bikes. Must of been a champion cycles thing. Same color too!
Sep 5 2005, 06:08 AM
Its funny I was talking to my brother and we are sure that the shop sold part kits off apollo's around 82-83. Black and silver every thing but the frame.
Sep 5 2005, 06:22 AM
LOOKING FOR A CYCLING BUDDY
Sep 5 2005, 06:23 AM
hey coastvl,I was thinkn about your lil bloke today,and you said he was big for his age?I have some jnr powerlite bars that might help,they have a rise of bout 6in and have been cut down in width,you can hav em for postage if ya like,let me know, I might try to post a pic tonite
Sep 5 2005, 06:36 AM
Cheers for that. I'll have a look at a pic. I have a set of NOS race inc mini bars here, but they are swept back too much. Good for an old school resto but not for a rider.
Sep 5 2005, 06:41 AM
just postn on photo bucket,will post on my 100th!
Sep 5 2005, 06:49 AM
evening fella's - fletch i found some chainring bolts yesterday and screwed 'em in before we went back down to eastfield for another couple of hours, anyway that little bike caused a bit of a stir with a few of the blokes, seems it has a bit of history? the red reflective on the seat stays gave it away lol!
Sep 5 2005, 06:50 AM
It's a MX-II Redline, TRX forks, GT bars(think they called them intermediates or Experts), sunshine hubs, araya rims, suntour stem, DIA comp MX seat clamp and brakes, IUN seat, maxycross cranks and yes DX pedals.
