Thats a bugger Stu. Thought you might get a laugh out of this. Got a call from a mate who works at a local landfill the other day, something that might have been a raleigh, might have "bateema" (bottema) written on the forks. I got a speeding ticket going down there and here it is:

Howdy all.

I'm in sydney and have built up a 2007 KZ1-R, and have a pair of 2007 LTD ED Laserlites.

I used to ride Kuwahara BITD and trying to relive my youth now I can afford it.



I am a bit of a Kuwa fan Aussie(utterly foolish or senseless person) and I would love just one of those Laserlites. I briefly owned a KZ1-R compliments of JMCGT, but it had to go to fulfill my Hutch fetish.

http://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/kuwahara/21778

Do you ride them or just look at them or both?

I actually ride a Specialized Stumpjumper most of the time and I just hang these babies on the wall.

I bought a Free Agent of ebay to ride just to see if I could do it, but I'm too old (not as flexible as I used to be) and too tall to fit well.

I have ridden the KZ1-R and my first Laserlite around the front yard a bit. I don't know how the guys these days have the seat so low!

Anyway........one of the Laserlites will be for sale for the right price. Any takers?


I looked at all the Kuwahara's on BMX museum and liked yours. It's always a shame to see one go.

And yes one might very well be for sale.

I'm tossing up what to do. I bought the second after agreeing to sell the first. But if I can't sell it then I get to keep it.......... wink.gif

If there are a few takers, I'll pop it up on ebay so its fair on everyone.
AndyDiamond
took the Patty for a ride yesterday...

COASTY
Good to see it gettin' muddy Andy. I saw the pics on OS. Looks like a fun time was had.
Bradster
Finished a couple of builds over the last few weeks, have you guys completed builds and been less than happy with the outcome?? I put my childhood bike together a few weeks back and although pleased with the build, simply didn't like the way it rode, it'a cheapo dept store steel job and I'll never part with it - mum bought it for xmas 1981! I've since pulled it back down to a f/f and hung it back up in the shed, it's sat there for years and I think that's were it will stay!



Also finished this today: 1990 Hutchins - freakin' stoked with this one, nice long frame with beefy tubing etc. o/g chrome decals too! A shake down ride with my son to the shops and back sealed it for me, nice old school machine but with some modern touches/geometry - a nice balance!




John - I don't have a fetish problem!!! Do I?????????????? wacko.gif

JMCGT
great stuff... I notice your seat guts are around the wrong way Andy
COASTY
Bradster those both rock. I know what you mean about doin your old ride. I am trying to find my first frame (very close to yours actually!) and I know it's gonna be a POS but it's the nostalgia of it all. It's been a tough bike to build actually. Why are the crappy parts the hardest to find? lol
The Hutchins looks awsome too. Love the gold + chrome.

heres my first POS.
COASTY
Oh and speaking of POS frames. I painted this relic and stickered it. The rest of the stickers are arriving this week.
JMCGT
Nice shot Brad.. love it
Kurt.
Nice bikes Brad!

Cool shot Glenn - one of those generic Webco knockoffs? - they seem to turn up pretty regularly. My first proper BMX frame was the same.

My frames/bikes went like this:

(1) '78/'79 Roadmaster or Reliance (?) Dual Shock
(2) '80 generic Webco knockoff
(3) '81 Madison MXDR (after I broke the knockoff Webco)
(4) '82 DB Senior Pro

lol - nothing gets past you guys.
I put a few things on the bike 10 mins before the ride and didn't notice that was back to front until I saw the pics - lol
Bradster
Too right Coasty, it's nice to look at and reminiscence but that's about it!
How many is that now Kurt??
Kurt.
Frames or completes Brad? It's my only QS.
JMCGT
LOL..I only knew Andy because i cant tell you how many i have done..
I have sat there some days looking at my bike after putting it together, and thought what the hell is wrong.!!???? haha.. dam seat guts, even had them unside down
AndyDiamond
lol - yeah well the main thing is that it worked and I didn't end up with the seat poking up my #$*% lol
laugh.gif

although my bars did slip back after a few rides on the track and the bike ended up looking like some noob's Hotfoot.
JMCGT
I broke one of my cheap seats the other week..lucky it was cheap i suppose
JMCGT


I cracked the seat on this pulling a wheelie..but lucky enough to pickup a green Shot Gun 11 this week

Was that the Sydney Ebay one Kurt?
Wouldn't believe the timing of the government (insulation rebate) came in 2 days after auction ended. Then again it still could have taken 10 weeks instead of 6. Would have made a nice birthday present for myself.
COASTY
Kurt, yeah mate thats the frame. No idea what or even where I got it from. I don't even remember getting rid of it!
The Quickie should come up great too. Man I need to find me one of them.
I'm lookin for a cheap set of 16" forks too. Real cheap 'cause it's goin on ebay and the frame isn't worth worrying about.
Kurt.

Yeah that's the one Troy. He had 43 people watching and listed in his ad he was open to offers - so I offered and he accepted. Amazingly no-one else had made an offer. Very lucky (and happy) to get it - only the 3rd one on e:bay in 5 years. So far it is coming up really well in the OA too.

Why does everyones Avatar say click here now? Except Matts? WTF??

bombers over undefeated saints by 2. woooo!
Kurt.
LOL - Yeah great win. Congrats Dani. Riewoldt choked on his kick after the siren that would have seen the Saints win too. Hope you get to watch the highlights - Bombers have had some good tight wins this month.
bmxmom
nothing i have tried has worked on getting to see some video. bummed. this sure would have been a great one to see. i think maybe i am going to have to pay if i want to see anything more.
Kurt.
Try here: http://bigpondvideo.com/AFL/201269

Works for me free.

Maybe for international they charge?
bmxmom
that was where i watched the last match. it reroutes me to a different site now. and yeah, from what i read it sure sounds like it could have gone the other way very easily.

You guys are all smokin too much! I can't see anything different.

What browsers are you using? I am using firefox.

No dramas with mine, no "click here now" to be seen.....you have to get off the pipe, can do funny things to you...lol

Try clearing your browser cache. Avatars are fine for me as well. Might be related to the DNS issues over the last day or so.

A few of the boys caused havoc around the streets of Brisbane for a few hours yesterday. I had a great time and to me, cruising streets, hopping curbs, running red lights, and smiling from ear to ear is what BMX is about. Thanks for coming along.





Roberto the flatlander hitting up the half pipe. Pedal placement looks a bit dodgy, however, still gettin' some air.


Must have been an attractive girl walking by because Brett and Gavin are not looking at me behind the camera...
