I took the day off work today to get my GB400TT re-registered. New tyres fitted and new rear brake shoes and she flew through. Thump, thump, thump….. and off I go. Lovely bike to ride.
I’ve always really liked the look of these and when one came up for the right money I couldn’t resist. It’s a 1987 model with 48,000 Km’s. It had been sitting under a lean too at Lyall Bay for 5 years and as a result there is some corrosion. Most bits will clean up ok though. Fresh gas, oil and filter change, front brake caliper overhaul and new brake fluid and it’s good to go. Everything works, lights etc, I just need to buy a pair of tires and it will be ready for compliance and re-registration. It rides really well, very torquey and quite peppy compared to the little CB and CG.
