Hi all

Quick update of my hack. I am waiting for and 48 spoke wheel for the side. So I haven't been sliding it yet but it's fun to ride around everyone talks to you.
It still needs one more bar on it and a coat of paint and the checker plate.
Enjoyment plus LOL

Hi guys. Just thought I'd better share my experience re hospital bills as well. Mid 05 I had a major trailbike crash (top gear - very fast) and ended up having to be Helicoptered out of the bush, ended up spending 3 weeks in hospital....

I have private medical insurance, so that all cost be a $100 excess, plus a couple of other relavely minor charges that weren't covered. I saw the hospital bills, they were over $10,000.

So, I'd strongly suggest that anyone who does a "slightly" dangerous activity like BMX should have Private cover.
Jet Black
Hey Osamas , if you see a sign you like & are not prepared to modify it for everyones amusement , you may as well take it

CoastVL should get a kick outta the first one....


or if you are good with the tools & can work under red light at night....



Yes there are real bullet holes in the sign .38's .22's plus a few dent's from .22 & .177 air rifle pellets over the years




AFP approved ! (unofficially)
On this "mounting platform" I've used assorted 35mm still & digital camera's , numerous video cameras , super 8 ,16mm film cameras & other "specials" with a standard screw in base connected to them. It sure beats a tripod or bipod & is great for action & covert work

BTW that shadow in the left hand corner is not my finger...

When Matt & I are happy with a few of the bikes we are finishing off atm , we'll take them down to the Homebush track & skatepark & get some proper photo's & video's
of our bikes doing their stuff. There's something eerie about a cool looking bike just standing alone without someone actually riding it.....

JB

KOSY-MOTO

Get it... 3-PEACE!! hehehe
ROBERTO
Dude ! You always amaze me with the pics you post. Where do you find all this Stuff?
Jet Black
Osama , stealing or modifying interesting public signs/transport for amusement or adventure usually involves a 2 person crew & a bit of planning (you _don't_ wanna be on the green team in Jail with sweet art like that on yer back)
As for taking pictures of you on your bike , the rider & bike become one & the guy on the ground with the camera captures the moment....you need to have people in photo's to make them more interesting , a competent 2 man crew , like my Matt & I will get our new old school pix taken. I might not be grabbing air like I did 20+ years ago but Matt's still in tune for getting decent air time

External train tags that suddenly stop midway thru & leave a stripe going down to the tracks are always funny.

Better wear a helmet when riding that low rider, you'll never out run the cops on that, on the other hand you wouldn't have to worry about it getting stolen outside the local snackbar.
Mattblack
Hi all,
Need to have a winge about Evilbay it s*cks?? I look and get parts from USA it costs more with the exchange rate and then it cost around $70 US ($100 AU)to post it here. So to buy and frame it can cost you $600 Aust. So finally something comes up in Aust and it means its cheeper for US to buy it here. Postage is $50 AU ($35 US) to USA.
I it gets worse if you buy UK and don't even think Canada for postage.

Well its nothing new but I thought I would just say it LOL
dugga
Hey Luis, were you taking a picture of the veedub or the schoolgirls?
Jet Black
Its all cool Osamas , ppl pictures , parts pictures , whatever , I still think a bike looks better with someone on it.....



It all depends on the props , location , time , light , luck , filmstock , experience & a million other variables.......

Personally I'll take Munroe & the Chopper she's straddlin in the old graveyard over Steve & his wombat anyday


JB
KOSY-MOTO

haha Remind me never to p1ss you off Howard! Thats some serious firepower.
Did you use sand in the sandblaster or something else? I was told not to use sand cause it can burn them. I have 2 sets of tuffs to play with. I don't want to stuff them though.
HowardinOz
Haven't tried the blaster yet, it just arrived today.
Itchin' to give it a go.
I'll try beads and Al Oxide if necessary. I can get that stuff from work. Hope to try it this weekend so I'll show you all the results....good or bad.
I have an old red pair (well....they're all old right or we wouldn't be restoring them) so I'll try it on them first.
I'll try a few other objects first to see how it goes.

Howard
HowardinOz
Here's the link to another thread which shows the results and describes the process of restoring a set of tuff wheels.
Awesome results!

Howard
OldSkoolRoy
Hey howard...when you do the tuffs....just keep moving the gun in a fast waveing motion so that the spray isn't on one spot for very long. A few quick passes are better than one slow one that could cause burning on the nylon rims. Once you burn them...it's not a lot of fun to remove the burn mark. Hope it works out well. Post up some pics...i'm interested in the results from a sandblasting gun as apossed to a beadblasting cabinet.

[ January 10, 2006, 05:34 AM: Message edited by: OldSkoolRoy ]
COASTY
Those blue tuffs look awsome on that goose. Has anyone tried glass blasting? I have access to a cabinet and they use glass.
HowardinOz
Thank's for the tip Roy. I'll definately do that.
As I said, I'll try it on a few other plastic/nylon products first.
Give it a go Glen!
You try glass, I'll try sand and or Al Oxide and we'll compare results.
I have the baby blue to do as well as the red and a set of hot pink.

Howard

OldSkoolRoy
yep...i use glass beads in a cabinet. You need a superhuge compresor or you have to stop all the time to build up air. Do it Glen. They come out like new. After you've done them, treat them with some crc, armorall, briteshine i heard alot of different ones. I use liquid lanelin. Spray it on and let it soak in. Gently wipe off the excess later and bob's your uncle.
COASTY
Cool I'll see the boys tomorrow and set it up. No jobs on so I have a day to play. They have a huge industrial compressor so thats no drama.
That bike is insane. You'd have to have big cahoolies to ride that baby.

hey howard, i see you scored your layback post on ebay, bargain for $10.... I got the chrome one

ROBERTO
Dont use sand! I'm a sand blaster for a living and it don't work, I tried all the different grades of sand and glass bead, they all cut the surface severely.
I've heard rumours that they can be blasted with nylon plastic beads which makes alot of sense. The tuff wheel plastic gets pretty warm with the friction, so low pressure is required and the nylon beads should pull the stains rather than cut them. I don't have the time to clean out a sand blaster recovery to change the media to nylon so I can't say for sure if it works.

What does work however is sanding them by hand which is mostly what that guy in that link has done.
It's terribly time consuming but the results are fantastic. I have O.G.K performer mags for my 86 GT Wold Tour, great condition but with a faded aged appearance.

Start with heavy paper to remove the brake pad marks the work your way down to 350 grit in soapy water, then 1000 grit if you have the patience. Wrap the sandpaper around a pencil to get the tight areas. I soaked mine in straight bleach for 16hrs as a final process. They are whiter than a NOS Skyway tuff 2.

If your mags are white, you need a drum big enough to hold the mag plus up to 8 litres of bleach, it's pretty cheap to buy.


Here's the difference!



As for coloured mags , you wouldn't need to beach them, maybe just the WD40 after sanding. I didn't use WD40 to seal my white ones as it may darken them. If you have any success with the sandblaster, let us know. Good luck!
