Kurt, looks like you've been polishing lady style. Not supposed to use your mouth dude.

You'll get an A for effort. Too bad they were only kidding about the party being fancy dress.
AdrianH
Who is going to the VIC State BMX Titles at Wodonga who lives in Melbourne? Please let me know.
I need a bike picked up for me from there because I cant make it as Im away for work and the one day off i have is my missus' birthday so i cant do it myself.
Cheers Adrian.
Jarvi
Finished this one yesterday.



More photos of the Unified 24.
QuicksilverBMX
Awesome James, Looks fast!
COASTY
Love it James. Hows it ride? Are you gonna race it or just cruise? Cool stuff.
Jarvi
I've only ridden it on my usual test ride which is up the footpath to the house two doors away and back. The paint on the pedals is pretty fragile and I wanted to get photos first.

I doubt I will ride it much as I have my Ambiente Bikes cruiser if I feel like a 24" ride. May go up for sale, I don't really know at the moment.
Volcano
Cool bike James...love the sticker wink.gif
Jarvi
Yes Mick, really happy with all except the head tube. Will see what I can do to improve that one.

This is the latest visitor to my place. Actually it came last year and I assume has been having a bit of a doze over winter and the warm weather this week has woken him/her up. I know I will come home one day and just see the head, think it is a snake, and jump a mile. It is living in the garden a couple of metres from my front door so I do see it quite often. I first realised it was there after I heard a familiar noise just like up at Melany. The slow rustling of leaves is a dead giveaway.

adrian, when is it? im in wodonga every 3 weeks with work... heading up there this tuesday...
cheers
Kurt.
Hey cool James. Southern Blotched Bluetongue. The emerge Oct/Nov from winter 'torpor' basically near hibernation. They are firey when you first catch one - but tame down very quickly with handling and make a great pet - here's our pet one "Rex". Yours looks like a female to me. She'll keep the yard free of snails.

Nice reptiles tongue.gif

Scored these 2 today, anyone know what year this GT might be?

Its on the weekend 29-30 November Redline oz.
GTHODAD
Im guessing that GT is November 1992, forks are about right too. That would make a great mid school resto!
RL stealth stem?
QuicksilverBMX
The forks are Dyno and its got alot of Redline stuff on it. I thought it may have been earlier than 92 because of the rear dropouts and no canti mounts?

Sorry Kurt, the Zoologist in me has to butt in. Jarvi's lizard is an Eastern Blue-tongue Tiliqua scincoides. From the description below Jarvi you're either on the Peninsula or the west? 'Although more common on the basalt plains to the west of Melbourne, Eastern Blue-tongue Lizards are also found on the Mornington Peninsula. They are usually found basking or sheltering under cover such as fallen logs, or discarded rubbish such as timber or iron.'

Nice Blotched there Kurt. I've got an Eastern and a couple of Cunninghams Skinks. Great pets. They go well with Diamond Backs and Vipers! Just don't introduce a Mongoose.... rolleyes.gif
Kurt.
Cool piker. Very similar by the look.
JMCGT
they changed the dropouts back to the original style in the 90,s Reece..and canti,s were about 94??..
Jarvi
Thanks Piker. I'm in Ivanhoe so the east side of the city. If it ever annoys me I'll just catch it and head over to Waza's to scare the crap out of it. So many Mongooses to chase it around then.

Appears to live in the agapanthus. Just needed to clarify as you were giving the impression that I probably live in a jungle or scrap metal yard.

OMG!!! We just got power back on at my place (Brisbane) after 14 hours...lots of powerlines down after the huge storm that hit us yesterday arvo! worried_anim.gif
I was in the shed working on a bike when it poured down...it was so loud I was wearing earmuffs in the shed...LOL.
Thankfully no damage at my place...but up the road two cars were crushed flat by falling trees!!! Very full on storm... ohmy.gif
Kurt.
Wow Mick. Pleased I missed that one too!
Volcano
Yeah...full on storm mate! Lots of big trees uprooted & fell across the road...two cars were flattened by a huge gum tree!!! ohmy.gif
............but my bikes were safe & tucked away...hehe wink.gif

Wow Martin, a few of those names one your list surprise me..I've dealt with a few of them with no drama's...Not questioning it, just surprised...wonder if their economy woes are transmitting through...(not that our economy is all roses)...

Also on that front (weak economies), I had what I thought was a ridiculously low snipe in on this and it appears that I was the second place bidder!..I think this would have gone for twice the price 6-12 months ago (even though it's the less desirable Series 2)

Should have been working this morning however I looked at the forecast for the next few days and cloudy and showers each day. Nice down here today so I grabbed some photos of the 87 Haro Sport I bought from Serva a while back. Used to be a rider until I decided I preferred my new school bikes.

Set the self timer and grabbed a photo just to prove I do wear brands other than RSABOUT. then thought, hang on I can ride this one so why not grab some photos.






COASTY
Great pics James. Lookin good. I got the bars today too. Thanks again. Perfect.
Mick, I have been looking at the pics from the storm. You were lucky to escape the damage. Good to hear your ok.
ACGTO
Here's my latest. More pics in the main forum : Redline Proline II Build

COASTY
Stunning! Thats a sweet Proline. Another bike I must have oneday.
Jarvi
Glad you are happy with the bars Glenn. No criticising the fine paint job!

Nice Redline, LOVE those wheels!!!!!!!!

Hi guys, I just posted this is it's own thread, but wanted to make sure you all catch it, please feel free to post elsewhere and spread the word.....


BMX Bandits 25th Anniversary Celebrations.
The guys from 2020 magazine are putting together a celebration for the 25th Anniversary of BMX Bandits this coming Sunday Nov 23rd, at THE place where the opening scenes of the movie were shot - Manly Beach! As part of the Manly Youth centre birthday, starting 10am right opposite the Manly Corso they'll be bands, a ramp jam, a vintage bike display (bring your bikes!), giveaways, competitions, a possible appearance by Nicole Kidman (although her management haven't confirmed...), and lots lots more! All finishing up with a screening of the film late arvo/early evening at the Manly Youth Centre.
Apoligies for late notice but it's been a nightmare for the guys to pull together (councils, permits, red tape, Nicoles' management....).
More info as it comes to hand will be posted at -
www.2020bmxmag.com.au
Mr.BMX
Nicole's management told me she's still in promo-mode all across USA & Europe flogging the 'Australia' movie.

Not sure if she'd be available to the Anniversary, as nice as it would be to have her there, it's not promoting anything about her today or making money for anyone....sad but true.
Hey, if you add something about the 'Australia' movie at Manly, maybe she'll come over then ;-)

I've had plans for some time now for Nicole to make an appearance or at least a photo or 2 here'n'there.

Although i've since gained an insider who can steer her my way, and things are taking shape finally ;-)
ACGTO
I'll take the Red Devil and the Red Head. Don't mind a bit of botox.
QuicksilverBMX
Will Angelo be there? smile.gif
COASTY
Don't get me started on this crap.
Lets just change the dates and stuff the people that already booked tickets. Wankers
QuicksilverBMX
oh bugger thats right, sorry Glenn sad.gif
AdrianH
I reckon you should hit them up for a refund on your tickets Glenn, you are well within your rights to ask.
Kurt.
Quick question for the SE guys - I know the seat post on loop PKs was 13/16" - but what about the seat post clamps? They were a standard 1" clamp weren't they?
Jarvi
Yes Kurt, I have used a standard Suntour one. Thicker tubing so same outside but smaller inside diameter.
Kurt.
Thanks James - thought that was the story smile.gif
AdrianH
Just got this on ebay
COASTY
Nice Minigoose Adrian. Might be a little small for you though! wink.gif
AdrianH
My young fella fell in love with Wazas mitygoose and no way do i think Waza would part with that so I got him this. Missus doesnt know yet, im screwed lol.
JMCGT

Volcano

AdrianH
