Got my Bikes "Checkout" list back today

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by tmg, Dec 18, 2006.

  1. Hey everyone, how ya all goin? I am good. I got my motorbikes checkout list back today, as I put it in to the bikeshop for a roadworthy check, but it wasn't officially a roadworthy, but they still checked it all out like they were doing one, so I'm not constrained to only have two weeks to do it in.

    Here's what's wrong with it. I think it's not gonna be long at all until it's on the road.

    1> Compliance Plate - will apply for one from the transport department
    2> Replacement of Rear Shocks or Replacement of Shock Seals - Proabably orfer aftermarket units just to be sure.
    3> Gauges - I got a spare set from the other bike
    4> Headlight - ^^ ^^ ^^
    5> Front Brake resivour - leaks when NOT in use, won't be hard to get one.
    6> Rear Swing arm is rusty - bike shop isn't sure how deep the rust goes, but isn't passing it.

    I need to get the frame that's being powdercoated back ASAP so I can make one good bike using the engine from this one and all the parts I have from the two bikes I own, so I end up wih one really good bike.

    BTW how much would aftermarket rear shocks cost?
  2. What bike?
  3. I guess the one in his sig.

    You could spend $200- $2000 depending what quality you want.
  4. Cant recommend these guys highly enough
