Post New Postie Build
Well i've wanted to get my race postie registed for a long time. so i've decided to buy a 2nd postie and use it to donate all the parts i need to get it registed.

mite take me a few months but im keen to bang it down the highway with some white walls, suicide shiftier and possible a sprung saddle while making it a hard tail at it's top speed of 140km ish :D

Photo's of the doner postie i picked up today :D

depends how much you want to spend. some sellers think a 2004 model bike is worth 1800 still with 50k on the clock.

just got to look around and youll find them for 300

Postie frames always remind me of those things the storm troopers ride through the ewok forest.
