  1. Bloody hot but rode the slabby over to Trumpet HQ for a bite in the cafe and a nose round the exhibition centre
  2. I’m not putting any pads in them
  3. Sold an 80’s old skool air rifle to a mate of mine for a decent price so spent the money on some stoppers before the boss finds out I’ve got some cash . Saved more than £75 quid with my ACU discount
  4. Being as though it’s nearly a year thought I should stop taking bits off and put her back together get an Mot and ride the bloody thing,thanks to@clivegto for the inspiration while I was at Donington last weekend with the smoker. New throttle cable fitted and carbs in the frame ready to fit tomorrow,drilled out the knackered rivnut and replaced. Replacement back end fitted with full size mudguard and indicators instead of the shitty 90s style smoked lense jobs that are screwed through the seat panels and fairing I like a list so will be making a job list tonight,then I need to work my way through the box of bits I’ve gathered over the last year ready to replace the knackered bits,even managed to track down a seat cowl in black to….I’m chin strapped now so feet up until tomorrow
  5. I’m in depending on when it is @davecara
  6. MOT for the smoker today ready for Donington. Passed with no issues so rode out to Matlock for fish and chips ,even let my lad ride it home
  7. A few bits arrived through the post, donor swing-arm that I’ll use the brace off and the billet adjusters, r1 spindle,blue spot and hanger so it should all work ok with a GSXR 600 wheel. Gives me better tyre options for next season as I’ve changed my mind about running the old slabby flexi 18” wheels
  8. My 600 blandit race bike was N712 engine code plus it’s also got keihin CVKs on it by the looks of it
  9. Mot day again, passed but should do only did 200 miles since last year Had a pootle round in my jeans and trainers plus hoodie just like 1980
  10. Great work @busa1300another smoker saved from the scrap heap
  11. If you read the thread my posts are about the sad loss of Gav from GIA only.I have no experience or opinion either +ve or -ve on Martek, other folk seem to have personal knowledge and experience as you do. I personally love projects and look forward to seeing your Schwantz rep in the projects section perhaps OSS isn’t for you,I hope not but it can be sarcastic and tough at times, but well worth sticking around…off to bed now as it’s late in Denmark
  12. Good thing about opinions we all have one…normally based on folks own experiences, it’s a good forum is this not an arsebook page. Did you RTFR……or just join to wind folk up with your witty banter There are some smart and creative people on here I don’t include myself in that description. Welcome to OSS by the way from Gonzo , more interested in what project you have than whether we do or don’t like how someone runs their business, we should all agree to disagree we like pics by the way
  13. Maybe one of the ones that are on brackets like this?Pillion footrest hanger in picture
  14. Simbec1863

    Sprocket nut

    They probably are at least I can confirm my old 600 blandit race bike was the same nut as on my old 1052 and my 1127 as I nicked it last season.They were about a tenner from Suzuki
  15. ACU standard is lever guards brake side only to prevent brake being applied due to collision with other rider normally designed to snap during this process but stop brake locking on Folding or pre cut levers allow bike to crash without doing much harm ie bike digging in, always carry spare levers and an easy fix, ask me how I know I think brake lever guards can be seen in earlier photos on this page
  16. Nothing too bad mate just my malfunctioning ticker still not sorted had a couple of procedures but not fixed yet and 1 more to go but the waiting list is 10 bloody months and I can’t do anything stressful like racing until they’ve sorted it.I’ll be at Donington for a catch up I’ll be having similar bracing to your NWS one plus a little bit on the upper frame plus swingarm mods to, something like this
  17. Carbs cleaned and soda blasted, bores enlarged plus rubbers blended to match intakes. Now need to get a few new parts for the carbs,doesn’t seem to be a full rebuild kit available but Keyster does a Tornado kit direct from Japan only.I’ll look to see if it’s a better option than my 10% ACU discount from Suzuki.
  18. A wee health issue has stopped my racing plans this year,on a waiting list to get fixed so lost my mojo with the race bike but thought I should get my finger out and do a bit in prep for next season.Having the frame strengthened and the swinging arm modified so needed to get it dismantled.Only took 2 hours from start to finish took longer to tidy up afterwards,bloody knackered now Pictures of the slabby in kit form
  19. Found another pic @clivegtonot quite the same these were £95 last time I checked
  20. Looks similar to the Team Classic Suzuki Blandit seat unit,think that was a copy of the RGV one.When I raced in the series I’m sure Highfibre supplied them
