    Goodbye KHS *Its alive again!!*

    Goodbye KHS. It has been a great 4 year relationship. I know you had a hard life but wasn't it worth it? All of those railed berms, 2 wheel drifts and all day epics were soooo much fun. I am sorry to see our relationship end in this manner, with a loud grinding noise that came from this.



    At least Harper was excited 'OOOhhh look, another moving bit!!!'



    So many memories,

    Where this bike really went well, Stromlo



    Splashing through the water in the Highland Fling



    Pleasure and pain, the Sydney 12hr



    and fun in the mud at Bright



    So long and farewell.

    Well look what turned up yesterday



    Seeing that KHS does not import into Australia anymore I thought the odds of me getting something would be low, but I decided to try my luck and got in contact with KHS USA. I got a same day response and two days later I had a price and the part was being shipped, another two weeks later and the bike is up and running again. Im a very happy boy

    Mella I reckon 60 minutes would put a pretty big spin on it.

    Suspension bearings were replaced not that long ago, but the headset bearings.........
