Bike Talk / scottoiler

anyone got an old scottoiler they aren't using?

Mine has died and refuses to stop dripping oil. I like them for the commuting hack so want to get it fixed!
Bike Talk / track bike help!

Hello All remember me?

So it appears bikes are fun who knew?!? ;-)

I'd like to enter the world of bike trackdays again. I used to pootle about on 400's, then had a b1h and then a 5sl r6 for years.. I've currently got a 2007 r1 (pre big bang) road bike which I love. I tracked it once but on road tyres and it felt mental quick... I don't want to track it as I find the thought of wrecking a road bike slows me down too much  :angel:


I was thinking maybe another 4c8 r1 as I like the idea of being able to jump off the road bike onto the same model trackbike..


I've never really got good enough to make the most out of a thou.. always preferred smaller bikes where i can make up the lack of grunt with corner speed and feel like i'm getting the most out of it.. otherwise i'm the person you hate - storming up to a corner, stopping, pootling round and then poooowweeer!


these days most people seem to be on thou's.. I'd like to do more european trackdays too.

thoughts? :afro:

Bike Talk / New toy..

Anything Lord Danior can do...

No I didn't buy an mv... however..

The house buying has had a small hitch thanks to millhouse.. I'd already laid out on a 675 trackbike in various boxes but then millhouse had his 675 up for sale.. so decided to mix and match. a LOT of part swapping and building has got me a nicely tricked up 675 road/trackbike and a trackbike (for sale)

Moody outside (cos my garage isn't big enough) shot..

Wanted / 675 road/trackbike
January 05, 2015, 04:03:51 PM
Right peoples can you keep your eyes out for:

a cosmetically challenged daytona 675.

Something that is mechanically fine, but has been down the road. Dont mind if it's missing clipon's pegs etc as long as it's straight and runs...  Failing that. A trackbike with v5 and the road loom still there would do...

Want a new trackbike, but want it road legal so I can take it out for a few sunny days etc

Many thanks :)

Bike Talk / what is going on with bike prices?
August 02, 2014, 01:58:43 PM
So within 3 days i've sold both my r6 trackbike and r6 roadbike..

r6 2004 roadbike bought in 2011 for £2450 with 8k on the clock. Sold yesterday with 16k on the clock for £2700
r6 2004 track bike bought in 2008 for £2600 many many trackdays later sold for £2750

I know i'm amazingly talented when it comes to buying / selling but even so have used prices gone up in the past few years??
