Kawasaki 1981 KE175D. Bought from Goulburn, NSW from original owner who had only done 4,400Km before leaving behind his shed for 25 years. Required a complete rebuild and de-rusting, repaint, rechrome forks, etc.

1978 Yamaha XT500E (European colour scheme) bought second hand in South Africa in 1978 with 800 klm's on the clock. Spent much of the first 5 years in the dirt including traversing the infamous Sani Pass and over the Maluti mountains in Lesotho including the infamous Letele Pass. I brought the bike with me to Australia in 1997 and restored it in 2008/2009 in time for the 2009 Healesville Rally.

1982 XL500R bought new in Holland by a teenage woman and brought to Australia when she emigrated in the mid 1990's. Soon after arrival here she bought a Harley to enjoy the wide open roads. The XL500 became a farm bike and I bought it from her around 2010 in exceptionally poor condition. It took me a few years to start the restoration which was completed in January 2015 in time for the first Canberra Rally. No longer used on dirt, but rides very well on the roads around SEQ.

1980 XT500G
Not restored.
It carries almost every scar earned on a farm before being thrown in a shed on the NSW south coast for over 20 years. The tank was a write off when I bought it after the farmer fell down a hill. That's why it ended up in the shed in 1990. I cleaned and serviced it end to end, another tank, fork seals, gators, a couple of mirrors and blinkers and it was on the road again. Now has 28,000 kms, It still gets ridden through forest roads and it took a tumble down a small cliff at Christmas, me too.

Hi all, this is my 1972 Honda XL250 Motosport, purchased 10 years ago in a few pieces. I discovered soon after, that the engine was in need of a rebuild... what followed was a restoration project in my spare time over a few years.

Here is the finished state, now roadworthy and registered.

Here’s my 1989 Suzuki DR200,it hasn’t been restored but it is kept in good racing condition.
It was originally bought for $400 and has been improved over the last 4 years of racing.
