G'day, my name is Dave a.k.a. VINTAJ, a friend of Mark with the Sportster from Hawkes Bay. I'm the guy with the lo-budget shed-built '86 Honda CX400C bobber that Mark mentions in the introduction posted by jon61 earlier today; thanks mate!

I've been a fan of hot rods and choppers even before my high school years in South Oz in the 1970s, when I got my first cars and bikes; and I have really enjoyed the "koolness" of the lo-brow kulture since then. I'm now living in shaky-town Christchurch, and am currently getting into pinstriping - more for my own artistic satisfaction than as a potential money spinner - but hey, who knows...

My bike is an economical and ultra-reliable fun ride - with a nice V-twin rumble at lower revs, and a motoGP snarl when I open it up; great around the suburbs and quite adequate for open-road cruising.

A bonus is its quirky uniqueness among the bobber-tribe! Cool

P.S. Since taking these pics, I've temporarily replaced the pull-back bars with some flatter ones from a Buell - for more streamlined open-road cruising.

Welcome to the Grease Monkeys Dave. Good to see the mainland crew getting a few more numbers.

Cheers bud, being a mainlander myself subscribe to the want of riding unlimited choices of near empty scenic roads...

Good ‘ol Ronda the Honda, I’m surprised there aren’t more of these motors turning up on the forum, fun stuff...

Cheers for sharing,
