COASTY
Hopefully my 2 cassap plates will arrive tomorrow. I got the others that were on there. Unfortunately someone got the headset I was after. Last day and they grabbed it when I thought I was home and hosed. Why is it the little thingd are the hardest to get hold off. Headsets and Bb are a real ***** to get hold of for me.
End of rant! ..... for now.
COASTY
Very cool plate. Thats a hanger for the wall!
Well done mate.

cheers freestyler
prosight
so how did you go with the hutch aerospeeds Jas??
COASTY
So guys heres what I've been up too.
Finally finished this thing off. I'm quite surprised how well it rides. I like it a lot for a no name bike with cheapo parts.

This arrived from Pete today too. One finishes and the other starts. I love it. It's old and heavy but soooo cool. Which wheels do you think? I prefer the motomags but the tuffs are lighter (not by much though).
This is gonna be the most fun so far building this thing. My daughter thought I was crazy when it turned up today. I was like a kid at chrissy.
velocidad
Hi Glenn, it looks like you have a cool winter project there... but then again you don't really have a winter like us southerners do you? - lol
COASTY
Not at all. It's about 40 degrees here today. Unbearable.
OldSkoolRoy
Glen that's COOL. hMMMMM...Tuff 1's or Motomags???? I'd go theeeeeeeeeee.....??????? MOTOMAGS!!!!! Unless you've got a mongoose to put em' on? Looks like you'll be havin' some fun with that one. What's the plan??? What parts can you see on it?
prosight
go the moto's Glen full 70's.....
Jarvi
I can't remember what my original bars were other than about 28" wide, at least 8" rise and not much sweep back. Thinking something like the GT Pro Bars. Anyway, does anyone have any bars that fit those specs they are looking to get rid of? Or, what are some (reasonable price) that fit the criteria? Chrome preferred but I guess I can always deal with that later.

James
QuicksilverBMX
Hmm I might have to go to QLD for one of these famous swap meets
Lewis
are they Skyway OE mags COASTVL I cant see the reflector tabs.
COASTY
Yeah they are OE's Lewis. They were cut off before I got them in 88 or so.
I'm thinkin motomags too. I want it to look real seventies. I just need to raid the local moto-x restorer for the bars and I have everything. I'm really lookin forward to building this monster (it weighs a ton already!) Now I just have to strip everything and start the show!
Reece , anytime mate. We'd love to see you here.
Cheers guys
Glenn.

AjayVBMX
Great to hear that. Best wishes. Ajay
Mr.BMX
Hang in there Luis ;-)

Good to see you around again.
OldSkoolRoy
Does anyone have info on bennet bmx??? I picked this up today in a blokes shed. He said it was his brothers first bike...the bike is about 30 yo he thinks. It's a original 3 speed and has the shifter in the grip (grip shift) and has a geared rear hub like the old dragsters. Any info????



OldSkoolRoy
Does this thing look like Steve McQueen rode it in the great escape or what???? LOL.

[ December 07, 2005, 05:48 AM: Message edited by: OldSkoolRoy ]
KOSY-MOTO
OLDskoolRoy: DON'T restore it!! leave it the way it is!!!! looks great.. !!!
Mr.BMX
ROY:
Wotta gem!!!! Steve McQueen would be proud hehehehe.

I picked up a similar/same bike down here to send to Johnnychopper, with the same grip shifter and all, might be worth talking to him about it.

Not sure if i'd restore it either? might be good just to seal it with clear laquer and frame it or something. classic!!!!
Mr.BMX
Hi Guys,

Can someone tell me what era "Fox / Moto-X" is?
late 80's? 90's???

I have a bunch of fox stix here, but i think they're way outside my era, so i'm gettin' rid of them.

Marty

[ December 07, 2005, 06:48 AM: Message edited by: Mr.BMX ]
COASTY
Marty, Fox has been around since moses mate. Definately remember them back in the early 80's.
Roy, What a gem! I'd probably clean it up but leave it stock using all the stock gear thats on it. Very cool.
HowardinOz
Can't be sure Marty but I think mid 80's. I remember Fox stuff being popular when I was in high school.
Howard
COASTY
Marty, Try this. They have been around for 30 years according to their website.
