Recommissioned this for a friend of my dads, bloody Teflon cables were all shagged.


Made a start on the starlets rear brakes, still seized, little tear in the rubber dust seal held water in there and its a rusty mess, maybe I should forget about it concentrate on the engine and let the new owner sort that out?


Nrg fork bending.


Got it a bit straighter, but then the stem got a little bent, it’s very tough, too tough, so I’ll have to find new forks some where.


Then I got up on the roof and nicked it..


.. to turn it into my new garage floor, the jeep will be here Friday! keep thinking about engines for it, I forget I’ve already decided to put a bmw 316 (probably an m40) in it and find my self looking at 4age to t9 gearbox bellhousing’s. Not that I would actually use a 4age, probably a late 4afe, much cheaper and nearly as fast, downdraft inlet just like a proper engine.

Recycling a NRG 50

The neighbours crashed nrg50, was talking to nadia the other day, said she wanted a little bike to get around on and didn’t care what it looked like.




Only a bit bent!


Sean’s back from his hols in Canada.


Sarges Yamaha neo’s head light and front plastic bit screwed on. look at the back front leg.


Just a bit bent!


Made a bottom bracket to hold on the headlight, done.

Started her up first of all and it sounded quiet and sweet, idled like a dream even drove it a bit, couldn’t turn right and had no front brake but it worked great with some air in the tyres. To be honest it’s a lot of work for a fairly crap bike, might just break it up, use the tyres and front wheel on my runner and try and ebay the engine, there is probably better bikes out there for nadia, maybe i could just teach sarah how to ride on this thing?

My 100th post is a bit boreing, ya?
