Brisben
Latest update...something that everyone might enjoy

Sheesh - you miss going to the Post office for a week and...

Mick - I think I'm going to need those Cycle Pro forks...







Time to start Cookin' - got a stem in the shed and a set of bars in the post....yeah yeah I've already got one - but it has blue decals and this one has red to match the stem

Hey Strangers

I just read 10 pages to catch up. Some great stuff in here....but think we might have to rename the thread though...

Maybe "Who's from Australia and into 70's bikes"...I have very little knowledge of the era but I love seeing the passion you blokes have for it...

James, great to see you made it back...wow what a purchase to come back to, A NOS Haro, that is off the hook!

I have no new bike stuff to add, other than I'm in the process of getting a wheelset together for a rider...but I've been busy riding the wheels off my Profile cruiser, putting in about 150km's per week street riding it. I love it..you were right MCAM cruisers are pretty cool to ride...
COASTY
Hi there Stu. Should come for a ride at Noosa this weekend mate? I just hope the rain stays away until after.

Don't mention the "R" word Glenn (unless its Rampar lol).
We are suppose to get a little moisture until Friday, nothing like you seem to have had up your way though.
Darrell will be up at 9.20 Friday morning (picking him up from the airport).
He will be bringing my 2 quickies (can't wait).

WOW Ben, very nice!

Wouldn't need much of an excuse to go up to Noosa...unfortunately no can do this weekend..I've been doing plenty of solo rides here...but it'd be great to go for a pedal with some of you crew...

Good to see you got such a grail there Mick..certainly a bit of history for sure..

Nice Cook Ben, early one by the looks of it too...

Brisben
Whilst we're talking squareback

I don't think I showed you guys this one

Went for a big ride with Mark and a couple of others around Mt Buller yesterday. Big day and considering I hadn't ridden a bike since leaving the Gold Coast in May I'm feeling a bit old today. Well worth it and bombing down the fire roads and single track was outstanding. Climbing the hills sucked! What capped it off was handing the filthy hire bike back at the end of the day.

COASTY
That would of been great fun James. Not a bad looking hire bike too?

I actually got something delivered in the post this week which makes a change from selling my stuff for the last six months to help my dentist put his kids through private school sad.gif

Anyway, I got this frame about 2 years ago and had it sent from the US to my brothers place in Vancouver. Well he sent it by sea mail on the 28/9 and it arrived today! I might do a "whatever I've got left build" tongue.gif




Brisben
James - didn't you check if the chairlifts were operating??

Reece - that's a nice and clean frame - I reckon it needs coaster brake tuffs and pinched 1200's....

Got that kind a junk lying around ? laugh.gif

Nice looking frame Reece. Very clean and tidy.

Brisben
After a bit of tweaking I'm nearly ready to post pics of this one completed....my most "difficult" build so far

















COASTY
Lookin good Ben. Needs crud plugs too.
Kurt.
Ben. You are a full blown fag for owning that. You are a dead set cert now to catch the poofter's myxo. I hate you.

PS: Please leave me the RRS in your will!

PPS: Reece - one of the cleanest '78s I have seen in a long time. You are. as always, the Goose magnet.

PPPS: Yep needs Cruds. Happy to send you a set if you want, but I only have red.
Kurt.
What's the seat clamp Ben? That's super trick.

I really like what you've done with the lever too.

The whole lots looks exotic but lived in. Perfect smile.gif
Brisben
Admittedly the lever is a Team Products Shimano and came like that

The seat clamp is a mystery - it was in a bucket of clamps I bought from Joe Bag o Donuts/Fulltilt a couple of years ago and was the only one that worked perfectly with the brake setup

The used items were put through my mini version of Waza's tumbler in a hope to attain the same consistency of finish






Oh - and did I mention it was a 24", I like cruisers

Coming along nicely Ben. Looking forward to the full shots.

Christian, I'll give you a call.
