I don't understand women. The boys and I wanted to show the mrs the Malvern Star ad this morning after she'd been away for a few days. She couldn't give a stuff? What's wrong with her.

Anyone here got a wife that appreciates it?


The song was ingrained in my head, before seeing the ad again I could still sing it. I'm pleased to say that I remembered it accurately too, though I forgot the "video" of the ad.

I showed my wife.

She said "Oh yeah."

"So, you remember it then?"

"No."

"The song though?"

"No."

"So what were you saying oh yeah to?"

"It's a good ad."

Sheesh... I guess I'm lucky, she goes to great lengths to humour me.

PB
Kurt.
Sure is a great ad.

That shot of the tuff wheel spinning in the Tange forks is burned into my brain from BITD.

Funny though - somehow I remember the song as a bit rockier that that - obviously I've been rockin' out a bit too much when singing it in the shower over the years.

Mick, do you ever sleep? You know you're just setting Matt up to go hunting now. He'll have JC welding up one of those Cook S Frames now. Probably have it there on saturday if you're lucky.

Here's my latest arrival, although I scored it ages ago and have been waiting for them to send it.

It's a CW Phaze1 Mini to go with my 20inch. Somehow I don't think getting a cruiser will be an easy task to complete the set.

It's my first mini as I got it for my son. This will be the first of mine to get ridden and dropped probably.

Haven't built too much over the last 5 months as I'm clearing a few debts before I go nuts again. Hopefully the builds will start again soon.

Morning Gentlemen .....Coasty . JMCGT ....here are the photo's of what i thought was a Oddessy but turned out to be something else .....can you guys pick what it is ....it would have been Circ 85/86 .....cheers Jamie

Sweet mini Adam!...so what will you be buying next?

Ratboy, I had one of those orbiters BITD (they are the correct decals on it) I haven't laid eye's on one since the 80's!! To see that again brings back some memories! Memories of lugging one of those up my street to my house. They were very, very HEAVY!!!! I think they might have been made in Australia (as volcano said) out of mild steel? I'm a bit vague on the details...thanks for posting it up...

Adam, that mini is very cool, good job securing it!

John (Wannatobuyahutch) your frame set turned out a treat, as expected with the JC repairs and Roberto weaving his magic! I can't wait to see it all together it is going to look awesome....also Glenn that bike looks like it would have fun riding position!
Ratboy
Cheers , Volcano / 84Profile .....I'm in to minds with what to do with it ....either restore him or leave it be ....would love to know who made them ......i will keep diging a bit more and see what i come up with . Cheers ...thanks for the reply ...Jamie
84profile
I have a weird idea that Superoo made them, but I have no basis for this, just something that comes to mind...
Ratboy
I've come up with a lead that it might be a Meteorlite from the UK .....after looking at some pics of these the frame is as far as i can tell the same ...the forks are different but .....maybe these were re branded for sales in aus at the time ? ....
Volcano
Hey jamie - Does it look something like this?
I dug around my picture files...

Mick
Ratboy
Thanks Volcano ....Yep thats the picture i came across ...from what i have found scouring the net these frames were made by a jap / asian company and sold to whoever across the world and they branded them with as there own .......The UK did them as Meteorlite ....Aus did them as Southern Cross .....etc ....i may be wrong i'm only going off what the gods of the Internet have said ....this still has me wondering who might have done them as a Orbitor here .....Cheers Mate

Wow..Mick..that cook...absolute vintage...
Hurry up Adam..sick of waiting for your next build pics,...love to see your boy riding that,...dont think so!

Thanks Reece. What a sh!tbag that tool Mongoosedrummer is.
Kicks
Thanks for the kind words on the Goose.
Finished this tonight. 1986 Haro FST. Not so into freestyle(personally, no digs intended) so keeping it as BMX as possible. Will get correct forks, replace the stem and pedals, just cheapies to get it together for fun.



These 2 next...

COASTY
Reece. Already done mate.
geez those guys are gonna have a field day with this one. Oh well, it's been a few years since the last fight! ....
Mick, that mono is gonna be a tank. It'll go down hills fast though. We'll have races down Mt Cotton! LOL
Oh and yeah i have seen that pic before. I got these from the guy in that pic. Thom Lund.


This is that same bike. Thom still has it.
COASTY
As you can see I've bitten the 70's bug pretty hard. lol

Kicks, That Haro looks awsome mate. Nice work.

Ratboy, those frames turn up all over the world. I guess they were made in japan for customers all over.
have I missed anyone?

Dear god no! Looks like an experiment gone wrong. Please tell me that thing is a one-off and never made production?!

1. Hard corneri... hang on, *ANY* cornering on that thing would be diaboloical.

2. Landing it off a jump would see it go in a random direction.

3. Getting a pump head onto the valve would be difficult.

4. Can't imagine a rim braked model would work too well.

Sounds like fun. Put me down for 3 sets in coaster brake. cool.gif

Damn thats a bloody nice 400c frame.....Probably the best color scheme for that model IMO.
I want it and have the cash but sadly I don't have the room for anything else until the shed is finished being built.
Out of curiosity, If I am able to squeeze in yet another frame, Would the $80 include postage?
