    Hi Guys,
    Just a quick hello from another motorbicycling enthusiast who lives in Adelaide Australia. My ride has been fitted with a Rock Solid 50cc kit and I have fitted a tuned pipe to boost the level of torque and smooth out the power delivery. I have just recently fitted a set of Suntour Epicon forks and that has made a real difference to the handling.
    Looking forward to hearing from other riders here in Adelaide.

    Cheers BJ

    Here are a few more detailed images of my ride. The base bike was a Standish Mt.Lofty which had ridgid forks and rim brakes.

    Hi,
    The pipe was aquired from a sidewalk sale and was designed for use on a 60cc model aircraft engine and yes it is a tuned pipe of the 1/2 wave variety.

    Hi Brad,
    Here are the answers to your questions.

    1 - The black head and barrel are my doing as the motor was getting quite hot , well above 120 degrees C and after painting it now runs at just under 100.

    2 - The pipe was bought at a sidewalk sale for $50.00 and the stainless steel header pipe components from a model aircraft shop called DL Engines Australia for another $65.00. This shop also does a similar alloy tuned pipe for $118.00 and Tony from Rock Solid was going to look into trialing this as it would be alot cheaper than making pipes from scratch. The origin of my pipe is from a manufacturer called MTW but there price is over $200.00 just for the chaber section and extra for the header.

    3 - I live in Adelaide SA.

    Cheers BJ

    I wish the Topeak rack I bought was $35.00. Mine was $99.00:( and the same again for the bag unit that locks onto it. But I must say that it is so good not to have to use occy straps to hold your bag on.

    Cheers BJ

    Hi all,
    Just thought I would share a little more of my background with you. I did a 4 year apprenticeship as a Diesel Mechanic and as a sideline job spent 3years part time working on Outboard motors. My main hobby back then was motor bikes and model aircraft (the latter I still do). 10 years was spent racing 125cc and 80cc GP motor bikes, during this time Ispent 3 years as a mechanic for a motor bike dealership. I have attached a picture of my 80cc GP bike that I built from scratch.

    Cheers BJ
