Hi guys, can't believe how long it's taken me to join. Aucklander.

Name is Coen, have been doing a bit of building over the last couple of years. Figured that if I was to get a motorcycle license I ought to know what the hell it is I am riding on. So purchased a rather seriously injured (as in bent frame and all) Yamaha SRV250 and nursed it back to life over a casual couple of months. Was a great project to learn a lot of things from, but wasn't really my riding style.

I now have 3 CB650 which I am planning to chop. I bought 3 to sacrifice a couple for one, but after inspection I could potentially get them all back to the road. I'm keen to get any advice and general knowledge from anyone who's keen for a bit of bike banter. Especially keen to find anyone who might know of any building space/facilities around Auckland. I have all my gear up North and would be keen to not have to travel 2hr's up just for a bit of tinkering. Perhaps hire some space?

All ears!.

THE SRV250, my first build:

Hi Coen

Welcome aboard, the SRV looks great!, really well done.
There are some very talented guys and girls amongst us, so I imagine any questions you have should be able to be answered.

You might even find a buyer for a spare CB650.....

As for a workshop space... you've come to the right place, Irish Jon runs a workshop specifically for people in your position, and truth be told for his own enjoyment too.
This Sunday we are having a get together and work on your bike day at the Workshop, please feel free to come along and meet us and check out the Workshop.

I would recommend a P.M to IrishJon, also if you haven't already... find us on Facebook:

Grease Monkeys - Bike Builders Club

Look forward to meeting you on Sunday.

Hi Coops,

Thanks for getting in touch.

The workshop sounds like a fantastic opportunity. I've had a good look around the forum and indeed also on Facebook, you can tell there sure is a talented pool of people here.

I'll pop round on Sunday and check out the workshop and meet some of the crew. Rather excited.

I have a bit of experience in the engineering field too as I spent two years working for an engineering firm in Holland, so can already find my way around more metal works gear. Next to that come with a whole lot of information about the 650's as I have interwebbed the hell out of what's out there.

Nuff said,
See you on Sunday.

Cheers,

Coen
