Aussie Summer with my Mk1

Postby stooy » Sun May 07, 2017 3:50 am

G'day Guys,

As summer draws to a close over here I thought you might like to see some pics of the summer I spent with my Transit.

Over summer I took it on 3 road trips totaling over 3000 miles.

We went to Merimbula, Mallacoota, Sellicks Beach, Kangaroo Island, The Mornington Penisula, Broadford and Lake EIldon.

On a race track we also confirmed with with the 250ci engine installed it will top 100Mph with ease. Even though it was still pulling I backed out around 105mph figuring that was enough for a Mk1.

The over drive gearbox has it crusing comfortable at 70mph which is a huge improvement on the 1:1 Box.

You have to do it mate!

For the first three months of this year, I spent more nights sleeping in my Transit than my bed.

Thanks,

They are all family heirlooms actually.

The Transit my grandfather bought in 76 and I took it over when he stopped driving in 2005. I used to ride around in it with him as a little kid.

The caravan he bought new in 1951 and I took it over when he passed away in 2013.

And the Bike is my uncles, he rebuilt in his youth in the late 60 or early 70s and he still owns it. We recently revived it after a 34 year slumber.
