08 November 2015 - 07:39 PMBeen doing a little bit of bike breaking and buying and selling too, and am looking for something suitable to use for supporting the bike while breaking it. Just seen the Sealey MCL500 (Link) and wondered if anyone had any experience of these types of lift?
Or the alternative is something like this:
The single post one just looks like you might be able to make the bike more stable perhaps?????
21 September 2015 - 10:35 PMWell those of you who know me will know I buy and sell stuff for a living nowadays, and tomorrow the old Jaguar XJ8 that I had be bombing around in for a bit of fun the last couple of months is going so it was time to look for a replacement. So a mate of mine had be badgering about getting a road legal cheap track car and I thought "feck it why not as I will need a new daily driver anyway".
So the last few days I have been looking around to see what would make a best of both worlds, and after fine deliberation between the Clio 172 or 182, and the Megane 225, I ended up picking up this little beauty tonight:
Its a 2004 Clio 182 "Full Fat" Cup (basically it means it came with both of the cup packs). It has just come from a mature car enthusiast who had searched a long time to find the best car he could, and then done some light modifications to it to improve its handling, and I must say the thing handles like its on rails and it goes like stink!!
Really reminded me of olden days bombing around in my 205 1.9 GTi and having that proper hot hatch feeling and having a real drivers car. Put a massive smile on my face just driving home :yahoo:
Now looking forward to getting some more time in the car and looking to what track days I can try get in this year B)
11 September 2015 - 10:18 PMJust looking to get an action cam ready for when my kit car is ready and Biker Mikes post in another thread about an offer on refurbished Drift cameras got me thinking about it again. I know a few of you use cameras on your bikes and I wondered what ones you are using or have used, and what you liked and didnt like about them particularly ?????
05 September 2015 - 09:05 PM2002 KAWASAKI ZX12R
MOT UNTIL AUG 2016
IN THE FASTEST AND BEST COLOUR FOR ONE OF THESE....... IN FACT THE ONLY COLOUR....... GREEN....... NOBODY WANTS A BORING BLUE ONE, OR RIDICULOUS RED..... BLACK ISNT TOO BAD..... BUT GREEN?!?! THAT IS JUST THE RIGHT COLOUR FOR THIS BIKE.... ESPECIALLY THIS EDITION WHICH CAME WITH THIS GRAPHICS KIT ON (JUST COMPARE IT TO THE OTHER GREEN ZX12R'S AND YOU WILL SEE WHAT I MEAN)
I bought the bike about a month ago for my business partner to go over to the Manx GP on. Done that and now its time to be sold on for someone else to enjoy and scare themselves with.
When I bought it the bike was out of MOT. For the MOT we put new fork seals and dust seals in both forks together with new fork oil. We also replaced the front wheel bearings as one was a little rough. In addition to this we also then totally refurbished the front brake calipers, stripping them right down and cleaning then powder coating them, and rebuilding will all new seals.
The bike performed faultless on its run from Yorkshire to the Manx and bike and didnt miss a beat. These are awesome bikes if you have never ridden one before. Loads of power but still refined enough to ride at a leisurely pace also, and with a comfortable riding position.
The bike is a very good unabused example of one of these iconic and classic hyper bikes. Other than the Renntec grabrail the bike is 100% original, even with the original Titanium Kawasaki cans. There is a little scratch on one of the stickers on one side of the fuel tank and little scuffing on the tail unit from boots when people have swung their leg over the old girl, but this are only very very minor things and for a 13 year old bike the condition really is amazingly good.
Any questions or if you want to come view the bike then please get in touch and I will get back to you normally within an hour or so.
I have the full V5 here and in my name and address. Payment for the bike is to be cash on collection.
