Yes, I bit the bullet and bought one. I’m as tight as a ducks arse (water tight) when it comes to money so it’s taken me an age to fall over one that was priced right, at $500 for an Oasys 88 that needs $12.00 worth of HDD is a bargain 🙂 hell it goes beyond bargain LOL
Picked up this 1995 VN800A for the princely sum of $1600 – it doesn’t look like this anymore, repainted it black then covered it in coarse metal-flake followed by 6 coats of Candy Apple Blue, 12″ up apes on 2.5″ risers and a braided brake line.
Not too sure if I’m going to airbrush it yet, only time and boredom will tell.
Oh the joys of playing silly buggers 😛
While I’m waiting for Outer West Sandblasting to finish everything (the fatboy and the VL parts) I got carried away and tidied up the wiring (yes Mark, solder not connectors ), got the headlight sorted and working, took bloody ages – turns out it helps if you earth it drowned everything that needed it in red loctite oh and found an awesome carby return spring mount (see pic).
Slowly but shortly, hopefully it’ll all be done and back on the road within the next 7 to 10 days.
In early April 2017 my Dad passed away, late April I see his Facebook account is memorialised – fast forward to April 2018 and I’m still trying to get his account deleted. Sent these clowns all the info they ask for and still all I get is a canned response, I wonder how many more accounts such has his are there? Damn sure Facebook use them to artificially boost user numbers!
Slowly Slowly Catchy Monkey – basically I’m getting there with the site rebuild 😉
