Looks good Adam, you'll have to get some of that Mother's Polish that everyone goes on about to make sure it stays shiny. When's your birthday mate? Cheers, Terry. ;D
I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

So I said, "Hey mate, you haven't got any bike boots you don't need, do you?"

Keep going Adam,

When I can make out who the photographer is in the reflection in the polished part - then it is finished.

My new wheels and spokes came in today! One of you guys have a jig and some time to help me lace up some wheels? I was thinking about trying to borrow a car to take to one of your shops on the weekend if one of you has time. If not, I'll manage to find something else to do. I may even try to figure it out on my own. I've heard the thread on this forum about it is supposed to be pretty helpful. The new rims seem pretty nice. They're real light. I hope that doesn't mean they're weak. Here's a pic.

Terry, my birthday is the 30th. I'll be 30. It's on a Thursday, so we'll be hitting some pubs the day after. You're all welcome to join us.

Nice rims Adam.

Now, if you have a laced rim as a guide you can do the loose lacing yourself, then take them to Ace Motorcycles in Heidelberg who will tighten and true them for you - I imagine I am only saying what Terry would have said - as that is what Terry said to me.



And a birthday drink sounds good - any excuse.

+1 on what Cliff said Adam, ring Jeff at Ace 94572723 and lace them up loose, and he'll true them for you. Tell him I sent you, and he'll probably swear at you and charge you extra! Cheers, Terry. ;D

After back breaking work in the garden all weekend I got to lace up my wheels. I told Abby I should read the FAQ first because everyone does it wrong the first time, but I already had all my stuff out so I just got started. Bad idea. I thought since I had a wheel to look at it wouldn't be a problem. I had everything in the right holes, but I did it in the wrong order. Always remember to start with the ones that you put in from the outside. Anyway, here's a few pics.





I'll have to get in touch with the guy about truing and all that. I guess I need to start looking at rubber too.

They look great Adam, well done! Don't forget you'll need to install the bearings before Jeff can true them for you. If you need me to drop them off at Ace, let me know? Cheers, Terry. ;D

Thanks guys. Terry, I may take you up on dropping them off for me. I called Ace today and they said to just bring them in whenever. I guess I should put in the bearings first. Abby gave me a birthday present today. "My CB750 book" by Mark Paris! Nice hardback copy. I'm so happy. :'(

That's lovely Adam, I'm too lousy to buy Mark's book, so I might borrow yours after you've finished reading it? Has it got lots of pics? Cheers, Terry. ;D

It has lots of pics, but even more information. I'll let you borrow it once I get the bike together. I've just been skipping around in it looking at things I need to know now/soon, but I plan on reading it from front to back at some point. I haven't been able to get into any other books lately so I may start sooner than later.

Just a reminder that I'll be going out for drinks in the city tomorrow if anyone wants to join. I think we're going to start at the James Squire Brewhouse on Russell around 8pm. Not sure where we'll head from there, but I thought it would be an easy place for everyone to find. I think the place is also called the Portland Hotel.

Also, Happy Birthday to Retro Rocket (Mick?)!

How do Australians celebrate birthdays anyway. Do you drink and then sock each other in the face. Ive seen crocodile dundee so I think maybe so? Oh yeah, happy birthday fellas. Keep you hands up.

Nah mate!

We Aussies just get pissed as newts then piss ourselves laughing at the mythical Aussie stereotypes perpetuated by modern cinema and how the septics believe everything they see on TV.

Cliff, I forgot to tell you that I got a bbq. If you bring the gas bottle by on Sunday I'll make a drunk chook. It's supposed to be nice and 19. No worries if you can't. Abby made me a big Chicago style pizza for my b-day that will take some time to eat. ;D

Being dads day and all, I gotta work in the shop that day. But the cylinder is all yours - is it easier for me to drop it at Terry's place?

Speak for yourself Cliff, you Metrosexual you, I get drunk and punch myself in the face! (which explains why I'm so purty...........) ;D
