    Attitude. Late 93 I needed a new bike. My Fisher had been stolen for a third time and a couple of weeks later there was still no sign of recovery. Insurance was on board for the first thousand, so I hit the LBS to see what was on offer. I figured I could spend up to $3,000 so I could move up a...

    War Horse - 1989 Procaliber

    This old war horse has had some love and been a few places. New to me, huge thanks must go to Chris for thinking of me - raiding a donor bike for some of the build kit and looking forward to going for a hoon once its finally sorted.

    This story is about the bike that made me want a bike again….. The short back story…. As a young boy who fought to purchase his beloved 1989 HK-II viewtopic.php?f=6&t=143697 in 1990 only to lose her for the third time towards the end of 1993, I moved on to replace the Fisher in late 1993 by...

    Black Betty

    With my first foray into BoTM (July 2012) officially over I thought I would start my second build thread. Be warned it’s not going to be a quick build or at least a quick finish. Although you can take comfort in the knowledge that this one’s a rider and not a garage queen like my original...

    Purple Fisher CR-7

    I remember seeing one of these outside a shop in 1993 - in fact saw it a few times but never since 1993. Have trawled the net looking for images and can find every colour except purple. Have acquired a black CR-7 in need of love - but want a picture of a purple one for inspiration. Can...

    1989 - Fisher HK-II - NOS

    Long time watcher – first time poster. So I decided my HK-II deserved a birthday tickle. After all we’ve been through a lot and neither of us was prepared to let a good thing die. A couple of decades ago in our galaxy was a boy who dreamed of having a bike that made him smile. Fortunately...
