Hi all,

You may have seen me posting a fair bit about the old CT110s latley. Getting quite fanatical actually.

Anyway, in all of my Postie info browsing and searching over the last six or so months, it is only now that I have found the Postie bike forum.

I thought I would help us out and put the link up there because it seems to be a hard one to find:

http://www.postiebiker.com/

You can browse through the forum (link at the top of page) or register on the side.

I have no affiliation with this website, I just want to help us all out. (Greg, if this is not cool, just let me know)

Definately a Fed. No-one else would get away with riding an unregistered bike.


ps I see you totally ignored my generous and genuine cash offer for the old bangers in the shed

Oh Crap, they are onto me!!

Not totally ignored, still pondering what I want to do with them at the moment. Still thinking I may do the good (read better) one up.

Nice one Will!!


Thinking I will keep the better of the two non running posties now and make it a good old fashioned slow rebuild.

Here are some pics to give you an idea of the craziness that might ensue.

been workin on my postie out in the shed and I'd love to post a pic, but I lost my camera in NZ last month, so I haven't got a freeze framer!

Fitted an xr500 tank( complete with dodgy as fuel lines!!)
Just fitted Vee Rubber knobbies and HD Tubes
Prob will fit the OEM KTM handguards from my 640A
I have new clutch and fork boots on order.
I shortened the exhaust in the quest for power but it only produced more sound! Was fun for a couple of weeks but now I want the quiet back!

Has anyone else pulled the wheels off there bike and found it to be a complicated process? The front's not too bad but I struggled with the rear. Im thinkin I mite cut about a 100mm off the rear guard to make it easier to get the wheel out.
Any thoughts or tips?

Yep, bit of a pain, easier if you get a mate to lift back while you pull out the wheel.

I cut some of my guard off, mainly because a mate slammed into the back of mine on our Outback Postie Charity ride last year and bent it real ugly. Upside is the wheel is easy to get out.

We gave him the 'tail light' award. Not bright enough to be a headlight
