Get Resto’d Entry – John Urbanek
John Urbanek from QLD
John bought his bike second hand in 1990 in Western Australia from a shop which no longer exists. After riding it for a year he started modifying it to make it look like something out of the 40’s and 50’s.
It all started with getting a 1942 WLA front mud guard. With a 16inch front wheel he rode it for the next 10 years. He slowly kept adding small modifications including white walls, crash bars, spotlights, saddle bags and big tanks before he got a flash paint job.
Over the years he’s done all the work and servicing himself…..the list of parts he’s worn out are endless..The bike has about 215,000 original kilometers on it and the heads have never been off.
After 26 years and everything it’s been through, this bike needs a Resto!
