Funny you should post that Pete, that bike was just sold yesterday. The lady that bought it from me moved it on. Things change. She bought it for a lap around Aus, but things didn't work out. I nearly bought it bought it back for Lynne to use, but she already had the mighty CB250 Still has that strange little noise just at start off, but I give up. It still goes.

Nostalgia time.
I will take your 2013 and give you 2012 in return

These are probably the thugs who burnt down the Strath Creek General Store



and their mates

Hah...just wondering if you ever sold a bike TWICE (TRICE?) and bought it back TWICE (TRICE)

The CB-noise....it sure is a baffler, but it seems to just keep going.


Had a replacement engine from 110motorcycles in SEQ after drowning the Postie in saltwater creeks 3 times on Fraser Island in 2008/ 09.
The thing had a gearbox whine in 1. and 2. to drive you nutz!

Rode the bloody thing up to Cairns, another 5000km of hard going to Cape York and back, then sold it after the transport back to MEL.

Caught up with the folks who bought it and did a Great Central Rd. trip from WA to Byron Bay, another 4500k's of gearbox whine and loads of hard sand riding!

Never, ever gave any trouble for a second.... aside from that horrible gearbox noise suggesting it'd shit itself within the next 20 seconds.

No idea what happened to that CT afterwards...but she'd done around 20.000km of bloody hard yakka by then.
