trials tires.... that part confused me. great looking bike though, i bet it's fun!
The tires are period correct. Thats what the D/S bikes came with back in the day.
that's one hell of a nickname you use for advrider. woods wizzzzzard. cool!
anyway, one of the older than me riders pointed to my worn or trials tire and laughed, then explained "back then we couldn't tear those things of fast enough to put on big knobbles, and today you kids think they're awesome again!"
all while he laughing.. good stuff
I am having fun with this bike.
The Blaster has seen quite a few sandy roads, so I treated it to a wash job.
How's she sound?
Like a crisp two-stroke,muffled oh so right,torquey,and eager to rev,idles like a popcorn popper.
Am I seeing things? Or not seeing things? But did you lose a rear shock somewhere along the way?
Funny you are the first person to point that out.Yes I run just the right side shock.Swingarm was originally YZ250,with the single shock in the middle.Suspension front and rear is just right for my 150#. click on the picture for a bigger view.
Nice! Great way to adjust for your weight, and to lose another pound or two of bike weight!
I'm planning to do a Blaster powered bike soon. Hopefully this winter. I have a few more farkles to buy for my KTM, and then I'll begin buying stuff for my Blaster bike. I'm still on the fence as to make it an off-road only bike, or a dual sport.
VERY NICE build by the way!
Stopped by the big bike shop before going out on a ride. The gang liked the Blaster! And here is a silo picture...
My buddy put a 600 4 cyl. Sportbike engine in a Blaster.... I rode it, was NUTS!!
Not sure if clutch adjustment went bad,transmission fluid getting dirty,or if something internal is going bad, but I could hardly get it to shift. It happened out of the blue. I made a ride out of it anyways.
Clutch lever needed adjusting and all is good! 175 mile ride,fresh dirt roads,good tree colors,fantastic weather.
Oh man, I haven't updated since last autumn.
I still think this is the coolest bike ever!
