Hey not so fast there Doug, There's that prospect deal for at least two years now (remember we talked about it at the last meeting Wink )
But seriously we would be more than happy to have ya on board Irish. And that deals still open if you want to store one of ya bikes at home so you have something to ride while your down here.
Hey where are you going to stay when your down here mate ???????

Yes they are shit,sorry but you can't beat an original I"ve tried them all so speaking from experience here

couple of questions: I've seen some belts that got munted by stones catching in the sprocket.
does having a belt guard help, or is it pretty irrelevant?
I heard the HD ones are expensive - but you're saying they'll last much longer Doug? how many kms should they go for?

ran 3000km with no belt guard, nothing on bottom and noticed no more stones than when it had both on... when i took the guard off pried out 3 stones that had pushed through from the inside and the belt worked untill i changed to chain drive and the belt now hangs in the shed, (Gates) yeah baby!

Cool

Paul managed to kick my Pan over and get it running yesterday at Kumeu so I am spending today making sure the timing is set up properly. I'll probably bring that bike down to Wellington. I'll post the pics from this weekend tonight. I had a great time and thanks to everyone that turned up.
Shaun
Can you send me Gerald's email address so we can start on the tank design for the Thruxton? Cheers

This was built for a record attempt at Bonneville this year. The guy was riding round the showgrounds and this thing picks up very quickly. I hope it does well on the salt.

Andrews 49 slab side shovel. I love this bike. Sorry I missed getting a picture of Simon's SR. Next time if he didn't manage to sell it at Kumeu.

I rest the timing on this thing today but apart from one fart its still refusing to start for me. I should have had the two beers first like Paul. Maybe tomorrow after work.
It was funny watching the HOG people ignore the three classic Harleys and stop to look at the shiny Sporty. Nobody wanted to buy it though. Sara had a stack of old guys asking her about her Triumph (Kawasaki W650).

Shaun and Paul's bikes

IMG_0272 by irishjonnz, on Flickr
Shaun freaked everyone out by driving out past all the stands with two Panheads on the trailer. Looked like a very happy swap meet customer. Sara followed him on the W650 and Andy on my SR cafe racer. I led Paul off to get lost in the other direction.

I was talking to Shaun and Paul about a weekend run to Taupo. Shaun can arrange cheap accommodation for us all so its a good chance to get everyone together for a few beers.
Sometime later this summer? What do you think?

Strange Dutch guy in the swap meet had brought this Genny Shovel over from Holland. James from shed 5 picked up a Joe Hunt mag from him for $200.

First attempt at putting something on Youtube. As promised, here's Paul winning the "Be a Man. Start a Pan" contest. Pity he forgot to pay the $2 entry fee so I get to keep the bike
