I remember that last pic of you cleaning up the G-Boy survivor Christian, looked like it took around two glasses of red...

The bottle won't even have a chance to breathe before you wipe that over with a damp chux - it is gorgeous

It was in my watch list and the seatpost was a big draw card but I went to bed and thought it would go large - bet you got a bucking fargain!!!!!!!

Lovely frame mate - well done, I know you will do the right thing with it!!!
broke L345
I certainly got it cheaper than the bin.

should be good to do.

thanks Ben

I love that wheel set up. Bolt through Bullseye and a coaster laced to 7Bs.

Sweet as. We don't see enough coaster brake builds.
broke L345
I am told it's an early suntour front.


and it has no brake bridge so it will be coaster brake.

Went on a bus tour of the central city red zone yesterday (the red zone is the CBD area closed off due to all the quake damage). All I can say is that it is gutting. Our central city is knackered. Most of the big hotels, and in fact most of the tall buildings in general are going to be demolished. I actually got lost trying to work out where I was sad.gif

Still, I went home and looked at my cruisers smile.gif


Man, when you mentioned you were going to be doing that I thought wow, that'd be difficult to handle. I find it hard enough just thinking about all those Christchurch icons I spent so much time in and around as a kid being no more. sad.gif Good on you for braving it though, after a while I guess it'd be almost harder not to face the truth of it and see it with your own eyes.

Glad you had your bikes to go home to, a most welcome distraction smile.gif. Cheers for hooking me up with Darren too, always cool to know other Kiwi old schoolers rollin' on this side of the ditch!

Hi Lixy - good to see another member from BrisVegas on the site.

Christian - No probs mate, still looking for some more Stu FMF pics for u.

Glenn - did u get the Knox shirt?


Rather happy this arvo........my alloy Kingsbury pedals arrived today....oh yeah! biggrin.gif
Same system as the plastic ones (no bearings...haha)....but does have "speed-holes" in the cages.
They are in great condition, but might do a mild resto on them.

Hey Mick, yeah mate I got it yesterday but forgot to let you know. Thanks mate. They look awesome! I'm so busy at work lately I'm crashing early or veging out in front of the telly.
Love the alloy pedals too. Never seen them before.
Just waiting on some forks and I can ride the Rampar again. Thanks to Benny boy.

Might be able to chrome the spindles too.

You need to polish those ugly casting marks out Mick. sarcastic_blum.gif
ACGTO
the dumbar$e original owner looks like he couldn't spell. His name seems to be Pat Pend and lived on Kingsbury Road but spelled that wrong.

That stuff should come out when you polish them though. Can't believe some people.

Kurt.
Do your plastic Kingsburys say "patent pending". You would think they probably wouldn't. The US patent office has a great searchable database which might help you track down a date.

That Pat Pend has a lot to answer for....
Kurt.
Applied for patent Jan 2 1979. Granted Oct 7 1980.

Pedal could be a prototype - or if production, most likely made 79/80.

Volcano
Hey Kurt - here's the ebay auction....

Kurt.
Yeah cool Mick. Great pick up.

Prototype would be '78 I guess. Though as the pedal is stamped "Patent Pending"you could assume it was made after the patent application was lodged in early Jan '79.

And as no-one has ever seen an alloy Kingsbury it'd have to be one of very few made early on.

So my tip is late 78/early 79. Extremely cool pedals.


Great condition too - those ends are awesome.
QuicksilverBMX


Nice score Christian, did you get it from the US?
Kurt.
This is cool too.

Robert Kingsbury's (Kingsbury Products Incorporated - Jackson MI) Patent Application from Jan 79 references an earlier pedal design which he has drawn on - by a Casper Bickel from 1898! You can see the legacy!

Wow!...awesome info Kurt...cheers mate smile.gif

Great work Kurt

Reece yes I got it from the states from a guy I have had problems with in the past too but that was many years ago. Thanks for the seat post clamps!

Thanks to Waz I got my 10 hole G boy back today, Thought I'd be able to wack it together for BOTY but It seems that it doesn't quite want to come together yet, maybe it will be my build for next year.

I will have to quickly finish my gold one.

Thanks again Wazza and his new house is cracking!!!

Geez Mick - did you fall over a lot taking those pics biggrin.gif

Seriously mate this is one of my faves from your ever growing collection



Did I post these here?







They won't be staying on that frame - just put them on to see how the hell they work !

I'm also working on this at the moment

COASTY
Nice Mick really love that one. Looks 100% fast !
Ben, those forks looks weird. I love 'em but they freak me out.
Volcano
Glenn - Thanks mate...will look good parked next to your Rampar at the Roberto's show smile.gif

Ben - Thanks too mate....loving those Tange100 forks...........and that Floval rocks!!! drinks.gif
mcam
Hey, a bit of life in the channel! LOL

Nice looking Moto Trac Volcano. And Ben, that Floval looks cool I always dug that colour.

I'm getting rid of everything spare, and before I sell it to a wider audience, I thought I would offer the stuff up to people I know, in Australia/New Zealand.

I have a mint set of wheels from my Patterson PR240 (about the only parts left from that). NOS gold Araya 7x 24 x 1.75 rims, laced to silver flange/blue centre hubs with stainless spokes, and blue alloy nipples. These are totally show worthy. Some spoke holes had to be dremeled on the hubs to make the spokes seat properly (blame Bullseye, not me), but the hubs were brand new when I got them. These are a really really nice set of wheels, but I have no need for them now. If you want to see some photos, send me a message

I also have a Zeronine cruiser plate. Perfect for a PR240. Plain plastic, with a custom white panel (made it myself) and a repro factory Zeronine decal, The Zeronine decal is curling on some of the edge, and the panel has a few small bubbles, but it looks really good. The plate has a Zeronine number 5 on it, plus Hank and Frank, JT, 2 x Patterson and A'me decals. Again, I can send photos.

I also have a show mounted black MX1000 caliper, show mounted Sugino spider.

If anyone is after any of these items, message me, and I will organise photos. I just want to get rid of all my extra stuff, as I am done building bikes now.

Best MotoTrac ever . Seriously , Mick , it's stunning .

Nice stuff boys.

I haven't bought anything for a couple of years except for this one. Was a long couple of months to get home and hold it. Big thanks to Norm and Juan and for throwing in the signed Haro jersey and frame savers.



I'd love to say the dodgy look is because of jet lag, having only arrived back late last night, however, I think it would be incorrect and I just look stupid!

One for Christian. Polly is 12 years old and for the last 2.5 years each time I have said goodbye I expected it to be the last time I see her. She has a couple of tumours and not sure how much more time she has. Still as happy as ever though.

Great pics James...cool jersey
