Would anyone be able to make me a bar the same as the pic below?

Im looking for the D at one end and then welding/bolting the other larger end into the end of another pipe.

I can provide measurements but just wondering if anyone here could do it or point me to a company that could do it. I'm willing to pay but I don't have a lot.

» Fuel Spill M3 inbound on right lane
Nov 04, 2015 - 7:58 AM - by thecrutch
Coming into work this morning in work cage
There is a diesel spill, caused by a truck pissing out fuel.
Its on the right hand lane, M3 inbound, it starts around clonee but gets very slippery between the new maxol and m50 interchange. It will continue on further in the towards the Navan road. The ABS and TC were working on the work yoke even in crawling traffic.
It would be deadly dangerous for a bike

I've passed the reg onto cops in blanch.

This year we are running a four round series where only three rounds will count (a round being the total points accumulated for one days racing) this gives one a chance to take a day off or be still in with a chance to recover points after a bad days racing.

» UK Bike cash discounts ?
Nov 03, 2015 - 11:17 AM - by karltimber

Am thinking of a Tiger 800xc next spring with plenty of them over in the UK.

So, I sent a Uk bike shop an email saying was interested in a bike say for STG7k and what would they do for cash.

Got a reply saying the price was the price !!
Do they budge at all with a cash buyer ?
And the whole no warranty as the bike will be brought here that day .

Anyone get a discount when buying off a UK dealer ?

Nov 03, 2015 - 10:19 AM - by Pumbaa the warthog
I was just reading the post about vrt on an imported bike and thought I better start a different one for my question.
I have just bought a frame with logbook, it's a northern ireland book, the frame was originally in the US years ago and was imported to NI in 1996.
What is the procedure in this case? Will the nct place accept a frame to inspect? How much will I pay?
Anybody done this already?

Hey lads recently purchased one of these bad boys, just a quick question regarding the servo motor. It has a muzzy exhaust on it and the servo motor has been taken out and the wires are hooked up to a servo buddy 'substitute' and im still getting the fi light and code 34 which is servo motor. So basically is it the servo thing the wires are connected to shot and I have to buy a new one? Is there anywhere in ireland they do the servo buddy at all?
Cheers lads and sorry for rambling on

I've a bit of an issue regarding the millage on a bike I imported. The bike has done over 9000km but the clock only shows 2000km. I'm still investigating this with the dealer. Will the vrt person always ask to see the bike started to check the odometer? I have paperwork which shows the real milage including some forms form the TUV test in Germany that show the millage over the 6000km mark. I'm hoping paperwork will do? What do yiz think

Poor visibility, a few accidents and generally crazy cagers everywhere.

The whole of M50 - right from the top to Dundrum exit was either fully stopped or barely crawling. If the traffic going to like this thru winter and until schools close... I probably should start looking for work on the northside of town.

Nov 02, 2015 - 6:56 AM - by Kingisabella
Not mine and don't know the seller, but it caught my eye yesterday, parked outside the flea market on york hill with a for sale sign and contact number, so stopped for a nose. Is it a Ducati 250? Body looked rough enough but engine looked well kept (on the outside anyway).

Is it a 250 Ducati? What's one o these worth as a project/ nice example? Remember seeing one restored on Philly throttle but that was a twin if I remember

» Buying a race bike from the UK
Nov 01, 2015 - 4:25 PM - by Joek2
Hi hopefully someone here could help me. I've found a race bike in the UK that I'm strongly considering for next season. The problem is the guy selling it is in Hastings which is about 2 hours south of London. I would like to go over and look at it myself before buying but the problem is if I put the van on the ferry, drive all the way down and find something wrong it's a lot of time and money wasted. Plan b would be to fly over and look at it (costing approx €150) and if it's all good arrange someone to bring it over for me.
What do people think would be the cheaper or easier way of doing it? Or does anyone know of people who could check over the bike and get it on the ferry for me. I could pick it up on the other side then.
