welcome hawkers, looks like we have another fcukin quickie and goose fan, lol
beers are on you bud
you people do realise that other bike companies built bikes too, or do you just build them cos they are cheap to restore, lol
hey hawkers, so you are saying that you have stolen all our wisdom over 637 pages and only now chime in, shame on you, lol
should have jumped in earlier bud and joined the party
Aug 15 2006, 07:15 AM
i'll work out how to get pics up asap
yes pete, green anlun is here. each november i have a weekend at cobram drinking with my school mates. about 30 blokes, all in their 30s, who think they can ride like stu thompson after a case of beer.
enter the anlun.
aussierempar, i'll buy the bundies but only if u can make it to the espy.
Aug 15 2006, 07:41 AM
ok fellas, until i can work out how to get pics on this forum, try herehttp://homepage.mac.com/mhawthorne/PhotoAlbum1.html
first pics are of a resto of a mystery 24 inch cruiser frame. from weight, it's definitely cromo. any ideas what it is? ignore the redline stickers, they're off ebay. black frame is a kuwahara, silver is a supermax cromo.
i'll get some better pics of the id numbers on it soon, and some pics of the other bikes.
Aug 15 2006, 07:53 AM
not sure on that frame hawkers, i had a look but nothing comes to mind
Aug 15 2006, 08:17 AM
hey hawkers to post pics upload them to a site like that or photobucket
if using that site. right click the image and go to "copy image location"
then put it in the post reply with image tags either side
or go full reply form, then click the button that says "img"
it will give you a popup window and paste the url in there.
or if your using photobucket, you can select the address that is next to Img underneath the pic where the thumbnails appear. just copy that adress and paste it straight in hope that was of help.
also do you use a mac hawkers?
Thanks guys about the newschool graphites question, guess i'll just tell him to scroll the bay for the correct set then.

I think i went to bourkies bmx shop once in the early 80's...i can't even rememebr where it was in north mitcham....was it off Park rd somewhere?
It was probably the same day i rode at the tower-valley (warrandyte) track.
I mainly rode in the box hill/blackburn/doncaster areas...loads of tracks & jumps around there ;-)
Aug 15 2006, 08:49 AM
bullyhotrod, tks for the info. yes, i'm a mac user, which means i can't right click anything, and i'm a muppet in windows. i'll try 2moro nite.
marty, shop was in mitcham road, in the group shops right at the top end of park road. either burke's bikes or bourke's bikes. nice guy. he sponsored a few bmx riders and a few road racers in the local area, and let the local kids inhabit his shop after school - he always had a couple of top bikes (i remember a redline carrera i wanted bad) and gave us free stickers. my mate jase says his son was a good racer.

Your daily rider is a Giant Mosh I believe!

As a recent convert to Macs I can give you some instructions about posting pictures here. In order to link to the photos you have on the .mac homepage just view the photo in the slideshow mode, move the cursor over the photo and hold the control key and then click the mouse and select the Copy Image Address. The control key/mouse click is the PC equivalent of right click. All you need to do now is paste that address between the tags like below.
quote:Here's an example and just remember to make sure the images aren't too wide. I think the rule is to keep them no more than ~ 700px wide.

WOW Jarvi.. is that your 24 inch redline? thats that is de S_H_I_T!! WOW.. not to sure about that seat post?
Aug 16 2006, 03:01 AM
No that's one of hawkers that I used as an example. Only 24" I have is the Free Agent.
Aug 16 2006, 03:22 AM
do you want to sell that nasty thing jarvi, lol
Aug 16 2006, 03:33 AM
What's the saying, "if the horse bucks you off then get right back on and show who's boss." So, back racing it in a few weeks. Should have been next week but going back to Launceston for the weekend. All not lost though as I'll get to scoot around on the Quicksilver 24" and maybe the recently built Quicksilver Helium but not sure if I'll be allowed to ride that one.
Aug 16 2006, 05:04 AM
I have a set of new graphites flip/flops and they are really good. I got them from Ed at coloredtuffs.com easy to deal with and alot cheaper than getting them from here. You need to get the campy caps but to set them off.
Aug 16 2006, 05:07 AM
Forgot welcome hawkers
Aug 16 2006, 06:28 AM
haha yeah there not for me, i couldn't afford them, must agree, those flanges look awsome as all hell, thanks for the info. just i can't link him, and offer him to sign up because they had a great thought let's charge for new members, and since i dounbt he would stay. I wonder if it has stopped many so far seems to be to me. anyway any idea about those ukai steel rims in 2.125, i searched around and just can't find any details about them. Also with everybody getting into the springer bikes, does anyone need one I would be guessing it is that era roughly.
by the way i thought some of you were a bit obsessive, link [ August 16, 2006, 08:31 AM: Message edited by: bullyhotrod86jh ]

thats a big collection bully, how did ya find that
Aug 17 2006, 02:21 AM
...and we thought we had addictions..lol..
Aug 18 2006, 02:14 AM
what an awesome collection! I read your Q&A, It really p*sses me off when jealous people try putting others down because of their own inadequesies (sp ?). When you try to make your self look good or intelligent by putting others down or mocking them it just belittles you. GOOD ON YOU MATE! love your collectionand love the room!
Aug 18 2006, 05:15 AM
Geez fellas - quiet around here this week. I've been away in Hobart with work, but haven't missed too much.
My Hutch turned up in the mail from Roberto on Wednesday - even better in the flesh than the pics. Assembly starts soon - pics to follow...
Aug 18 2006, 05:18 AM
Oh yeah - welcome Hawkers!
Aug 18 2006, 05:19 AM
yeah i think everyone has pulled the pin, been quiet for a while
Aug 18 2006, 05:29 AM
I'm too busy watching the Dorkin' DVD box set from Mark Eaton. Not sure how many hours but it is a lot. 80s music, fashion and BMX. Doesn't get much better.
Kurt, will be down in Launceston late next week. Any chance you will be there for work?
Aug 18 2006, 05:31 AM
quiet?? so Kurts building his hutch, what are you working on V8?? me? I got a headache from stripping ano off some mini rims tonight. I'll try and find time to polish them tomorrow and then have to find some spokes. I think 188 0x front and 208 3x rear, bugger of a size to find in a shop around here though. I also have a start gate half finished the kids keep hassling me about so i better extract my finger.
Aug 18 2006, 05:37 AM
No trips to Lonny next week, but if you want to catch up let me know mate - Have Crewman and fuel card - will travel!
Aug 18 2006, 05:40 AM
I've got 24" 1.75 Araya 7X rims and Shimano DX low flange hubs - any idea what length spokes I need for 4X lacing???
Aug 18 2006, 05:41 AM
This is my latest purchase im working on
Aug 18 2006, 05:42 AM
What on earth is that Waza?
Aug 18 2006, 05:52 AM
Gboy? Ok I cheated. Properties don't lie.
I haven't done anything for a while. I'm trying to finish the mono and either chrome or powder these forks from JC. I'm thinking red powder. I dunno. I also have this car to build. Thats taking most of my time. I have been here readinfg everything though.
Welcome hawkers. Enjoy your stay. I'll have a Southern Comfort on the rocks.
Aug 18 2006, 06:00 AM
Kurt, I'm not sure of final plans but will be trying to catch up with a mate possibly Saturday afternoon. I tried to get him to put the word out just so some of us could catch up for a bit to eat and boast about a riding ability but I think I scared him off. Maybe a plan for sometime later as I am willing to make the trip. Just needs some-one to bite the bullet and pick a date and contact the old guys.
I also have a frame coming back from Roberto via Serva. Was hoping to get it today but Aust Post let me down. My first Haro.
Aug 18 2006, 06:01 AM
Hey Kurt, check the last page of your bible (bmx down under) and you'll find what its is.
Yeah CoastVL you are correct mate
Aug 18 2006, 06:11 AM
Never seen one before Waza - looks like nice welds.
No worries Jarvi - just let me know.
Aug 18 2006, 06:14 AM
aahhh so thats a G boy! Where does the seat clamp go???
Aug 18 2006, 06:19 AM
hey broke did i say something you don't agree with or something, i'm sorry i'm just a little confused.
and v8 someone on another forumn put the link up, but i thought it might be worth showing some of you's.
Aug 18 2006, 06:25 AM
the seat clamp goes onto the part still in the lathe getting made on the weekend
Aug 18 2006, 03:34 PM
Kurt - this is the calculator i use:http://www.damonrinard.com/spocalc.htm
works well and has a pretty good database of rims ond hubs.
Aug 18 2006, 03:47 PM
Hey thans Velocidad - cool spreasheet.
Aug 18 2006, 03:48 PM
I mean "thanks"!!!
Aug 18 2006, 06:38 PM
well done waza,, very nice.
Aug 18 2006, 08:40 PM
thanks for help and welcome messages. here's some pics at last. supermax/kuwahara builds should start soon.
Aug 18 2006, 09:04 PM
Like the black Kuwie Hawkers - looks like a nice powder job too.
Aug 18 2006, 09:14 PM
Whats your ebay name hawkers?
Aug 18 2006, 09:54 PM
I'm just surprised that people are judgemental of your collection, like you said ,they talk about you like they know you.
sorry I wasn't clear :-). I was impressed with your collection and what you wrote.
Aug 19 2006, 12:58 AM
Could someone please help me , I bought these on ebay and am unfamilliar with the centre hub unit does anyone know what it is? am I going to be able to bring it back to original
Aug 19 2006, 01:03 AM
Aug 19 2006, 01:17 AM
did i miss something, was somebody judging bully,s collection, i havent seen it. the link was someone elses wasnt it, i take it we are talking about the video games
Aug 19 2006, 01:26 AM
I see I'm about as aware as v8, the video game collection was not mine if that's what you are thinking broke, then no it's not my collection, I don't have that much room neither the amount that would've cost. but I don't see any wording on it, have i posted stuff of my own somewhere else, I'm not sure, i have been sick, and pretty tired lately so i guess i could've forgotten posting something.
Aug 19 2006, 01:34 AM
there was a post with a link to a vid game collection I thought was yours. sorry I really need to change my medication
don't worry about me
