  5. Victorian Flash Mob Kite Fly

    The Baker's aren't going (their first weekend off in a long time), and neither is Darren. I've got two monsters at a birthday party so couldn't get there till mid afternoon. And doubt that my two will want to go flying with out the big kites to look at. So it's a no from me, and a no from the other two.
  6. May the 4th be with you??

    Well it's a day late, but happy Star Wars day all. And to cheer up those poor Star Wars fans having withdrawal symptoms as they look around their garden, Bunnings has these!!! Pots for the garden.
  7. Applique Workshop

    Booked in and waiting to sew!!
  8. Hazard Buggy

    I like the drum angled to the rear, looks like the back of a jet engine, just needs some flames coming out of it
  9. Treczoks-Cody Box Kite

    Sorry to hear there is no reply from HQ. I'd keep at them, pester them long enough and they should get back to you. There was one of these Cody's at the Rosebud kite fest, it was rock solid in the swirly 15 knot winds we had. So I am quite sure there will be a fix, or some help available. Might even be worth contacting HQ USA??
  10. ANZAC Day buggy run @ Sandy Point??

    Well the forecast isn't looking to good. Light winds. Any wind forecast is under 5 knots, so I doubt that we will be going down. Unless Mother Nature changes her mind.
  11. So with a low tide at 12.47pm, Sandy Point could be a real possibility. Still waiting for the wind forecast, so we all might have to wait till the weekend before we get a good idea if it's good or not. Who's interested??
  12. Video Les Hemmes

    Love the rims!! Painted or anodized?
  13. Last day of flying tomorrow. Two great days. Saturday was a stand out, Rob Brasington rated it a 9.75 Lots of quad work by the Pheonix kite crew, and plenty of maxi kites filling the air. One more day; come on down if you're Adelaide!!!

    Sorry @andy666 your just not trying hard enough. Yes the seat buckles are far too weak, now tied to the side rails. Forgot, the plastic Fallshaw rims are original, but on the third set of tyres for the rear and second for the front. The Libre Full Race on the other hand..... Repaired the forks 4 times, even added gussets to the foot peg connectors. Cracked the plate on the side rails where they connect to the toe-in toe-out adjuster. Fubared the toe-in toe-out connectors. They are 6mm thick stainless plate, cracked right through on one plate and 60% on the other three. And the side rails are in need of some TLC, as they should be at 120 degrees, but fat buggers like me have compressed them to about 150 degrees. So they need a go in the press at work. The 15 year old seat is starting to look it's age. And the Fallshaw rims have just been replaced with some Sysmics, for more bling. And the GT.... Nothing yet...........or not trying hard enough.

    Sounds like my PL buggy! Lets see....... Third set of forks (current set repaired three times) Two or three sets of side rails (fixed once again, and needs another go, loose bolt) Two axles (fixed um... um... um... quite a few times?) Three seats. Two splash guards (the current one has two holes in it) Countless number of 12mm bolts, guess I am at about a dozen. Original foot pegs, but only because I don't use them. I made a set up at work many moons ago, the're still kicking. And drum roll.......... Original down tube!!! (which really needs a check to see if it's got any cracks in it) And it's still the old original buggy!
