diavolo
nice goose! - like the green. love the 'have to keep up with the kids' as an alibi, must remember that one!! biggrin.gif

hey, bunnings do have some 900mm tubs for around the $55 mark...
Volcano
No probs Reece - glad to help drinks.gif

Diavolo - how wide are those tubs?
GTHODAD
Jarvi
South Eastern sounds good-Ill be late.Hopefully before noon. Should I bring the big one or small one? biggrin.gif
Kurt.
Yeah thanks Diavolo - have seen those at Bunnings. My Cook would just fit in - about 880mm, but my DBs are about 920mm. I also wanted one that would fit 24" and 26" frames too. My 26" Cyclops for example has a 23 1/2" Tob Tube and was way too big!

Plus, also, the Bunnings ones are too small for jelly wrestling!
broke L345
hey james,

I'm up for a roll around to see you off.
cool.gif
Volcano
A roll in the hay? tongue.gif
diavolo
from memory they were 420mm wide.. i do have a 970mm x 450mm x 180mm flat 'under bed' tub, but it has a crack in it. i've been going nuts trying to find another one coz that would be perfect. it would be full of oa, but no waste coz you can lay frames flat instead of upright!! if anyone spots those LMK where at!!

oh, but no jelly wrestling in that on either... wink.gif
AdrianH
Guys im after 165mm cranks for my sons minigoose, anyone know of any for sale atm?

Cheers Adrian
Jarvi
See you at the track tomorrow guys. Hopefully it will be as good weather wise as it was today.

ha ha and no forks!!!!
Volcano
I saw that Reece! crazy wacko.gif

Been busy today prepping more chrome parts for an OA ....lots of elbow grease...but worth it I hope.
Two tubs worth tomorrow...thats the plan!!!

COASTY
Unbelievable Reece. Pretty useless without forks! I bet JC is gonna get an order very shortly.
Nice work there Mick, should be a nice stash when your done.
Volcano
Hmm...anyone chasing Moose forks?...going cheap...$1000 sarcastic.gif

Cheers mate...yeah, should come up nice.
Brisben


hmmm - so now I can make a fortune splitting a moose frame and forks?

were there any questions about what forks fit a Moose?

Mick - you do know that OA works better if you watch it whilst drinking a beer...




Volcano
Can u drink beer at 7am?... sarcastic.gif
Kurt.
That Moose was madness. There hasn't been one for a while though - and they do occasionally go completely crazy - remember that f&f & stem that went for about 2K a year or two ago...

Almost as crazy as people being fooled by a cheap broken knockoff stem with a Mongoose sticker!!!
Kurt.
Nice tub of gear Mick!

Did a dry run yesterday putting my CBR together. Crappy photos, but you get the idea...





COASTY
Wow! Thats really cool Kurt. I like the red/chrome combo. Ace job!
Mick, yes you can...
QuicksilverBMX
very Nice Kurt, Looks great in Red!
Volcano
Looks fantastic Kurt!!! good2.gif
Are u bringing it to Roberto's?


Hey Matt - how's the hangover? tongue.gif
JMCGT
yeh not good Mick...not good at all wacko.gif

Nice job Kurt...lose the bar pad,and show those bars off..
Pete Porker
Hi guys, i haven't logged on here or even browsed for awhile.... quite awhile ! Just booked some flights for Robertos', so I'll be seeing a few of youse there !
Volcano
Awesome Pete!


Hey...any of u guys got some loose change?.....LOL

Cheap PK Ripper

Mick that PK comes with the rare chewed up and bent NOS dropouts!
QuicksilverBMX
Hey Guys, went to the Aussies titles today and there were a few old school bikes there! I also got to put a face to a few familiar names!

Mark - Velocidad
Gary - Johnny Chopper
Damon - caferacer
Trevor - supermax crmo
as well as a few of the other guys from other bmx sites too!





Jarvi
Must be the way the second photo is taken Kurt, but it looks like the head tube angle is around 45 degrees. Perhaps the slant stem accentuates it. Looking good though.

Reece, must be good to meet a few more of the guys. Love that last PK.
Jarvi
Christian, John and I went for a ride at South Eastern today. Camera was away by the time John arrived. Here's a couple of Christian and I'll post more (ie better ones) over at the OS-BMX Over 40s freestyle thread later.



broke L345
stop looking at myass! laugh.gif
Volcano
Cool photo's guys!

Reece - Is that the KOS that was bought from Qld?
Jarvi
Christian, the weird thing is that there are about three of me from a similar angle, so who was looking at whose arse?
COASTY
LOl You guys look like your havin fun.
Pete Porker, come on up. It will be great to catch up again mate. Been way too long.
Looks like a good turnout Reece. How did the boyz go in racing? I have seen a few results so far.

PFFFTT - kidding, right??

Good to have a gander at the Aussie tittles & meet a few of the guys!
The old boys on the cruisers were goin' hard! I loved the 45+ class - man some of them went down hard!!!
broke L345
laugh.gif funny James, good day, I need a radox bath now though. My legs are killing me
Kurt.
Great stuff guys - looks like you had fun in Melb. Nice day too. Get plenty of interest in the old stuff Reece?

LOL James - yeah, the Brothers Cook, for all their experimental and groundbreaking stuff, were a conservative bunch when it came to frame geometry. Steering head angle was 70 degrees - which is very middle of the road. A DB Turbo, which has fast steering, runs a 74 degree head angle.

I always run a 2.125 front, so that lays it back a tad more too I guess. I really love the attention to detail on Cook frames though. Better even than JMC I reckon.
QuicksilverBMX
yeah Kurt the kids were trying to ride our bikes all day! Few of the older guys were reminising too!
Kurt.
Cool Reece!

LOL James & Christian! To paraphrase a mate of mine, when his wife asked a similar question: "Naah, it's not the tuffs, it's the coke and chips that makes your bum look big!"
Kurt.
Good grief:
