Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Any idea's i have a 1979 xs650 hardtail bobber. Oh and here is the hard bit i am only 17 with 1yr NCB.

    Cheers guys!
  2. Footman James!

    At 17 YO it's a bit pot luck really.

    Ask Mr Google and see what comes up.
  3. I've always found Bennetts to be good as they specialise in bikes, but because of your age, prepare for some hefty premiums!

  4. A biker myself, I've just googled this 650 Bobber and have to admit it's new to me.

    Given your age, have you had it restricted?

    As much as i'd like to be positive here, I'd be surprised if you actually manage to get insurance; least a policy you can afford.

    :? 17 & one years NCB. One year on a poof chariot?

  6. Yea i had a year on a shit 50cc!
    I built the bike with help from others.
    I will need to just check everywhere my insurance is bad enough with what i have now!

    Hmmmmmmmm, I can't be arsed checking.
  8. When I was 17, my biking friends recommended that I use Carole Nash and I still know a lot of bikers that use that company.

    My motorcycling days ended when I fractured my spine 8+ years ago, even a few hours of pillion became painful but my core strength is such now that I feel ready to get back into it :)
  9. Sorry to hear about your accident, i know i havent been in the scene long but i have been around bikes all my life and if one thing i have learned you cant give it up, once a biker always a biker.
    Il try Carole nash looks like they do a policy for custom bikes!
  10. I don't hold out too much hope for cheap Insurance. You must of just passed your test under the new rules aren't you limited to 33 BHP for two years? 1979 650cc properly a yam may not be that powerful :p Anyway good luck to you Carol Nash is worth looking at.

    Ride hard ride free.
  11. Yea am restricted for two years but u have new mikuni carbs instead of the old CV ones so i cant get the kit so il just make a spacer to prevent the slides form opening full.

    I also have big bore stainless pipes on it, i think i will need a dyno for this one haha

  12. You know its a custom but you will have to tell the insurers everything or let them inspect your bike. My advice is stay on a standard bike for a couple of years get your NCB up and spend money on the chop you would of spent on insurance. :salute:
  13. Footman James and Carole Nash are your best bets, but your age is against you I'm afraid

    Post a pic of your bobber please
  14. Hey sorry i didnt post back i cant figure out how to post a photo
