Re: Basket Cases

I am going to use the Subaru Blue and see what I think.
The metallicness part might not look right but I’ll see when it’s finished.
A bit of sparkle might make her like me more

I wonder if you emailed Pernod Ricard if they would tell you what their blue colour code is?

I'm in the process of giving the blonde cougar a well deserved facelift.

Molasses would be a byproduct in your part of the world wouldn't it.

How long should you leave it in roughly?

Re: Extra home workshop time

You would lose volume as the reaction creates hydrogen gas as a product, so the overall amount of matter in the tank is reducing.
Other option is insects discovered what they thought was a honey hole of food.

What is the ratio of molasses to water?

Re: Basket Cases

Nice to have you down here Greg. Not only sharing bikes but sharing lines on Section 4 Day 2. Enter the section and ride over the off camber rock pictured and immediately jump the gap, then turn the corner and fire over the rock pictured to complete the section. Most important part of the section wa...

The answer to this is in the history of...

Re: New to Trials Brisbane Northside

Nice work Tim, KX65 footpegs fit to a TY175 with a small amount of angle grinding and work quite well, not sure if they fit the 250 though. De-coking the exhaust by burning on a fire or similar is a must as it transforms a 40 year old gummed up exhaust and allows the engine to breath as it was desig...

Re: Basket Cases

In reply to Phil, I would be very surprised if a kickstart shaft with the end welded on would last more than 2 kicks.
