The new ride BA?

How the fuck are you supposed to steer that? Does your passenger help??

blue avenger 04-05-2011 08:43 PM

single arm to steer. the other post is just a mirror. Not to keen on the steering and have been thinking of other options. Should see more use then the goldwing as there is room for a bag or two of groceries. First I need to finish the brake job that was started then add a Koplin gun boot! Road hunt gophers!

Looks like fun. Sturgis is coming up.

Powersledder 04-05-2011 08:53 PM

I can't tell if that is home made or factory? My guess would be home made, but it sure has enough brake lights lol

blue avenger 04-05-2011 08:57 PM

Home made back in 75. top row is brakes I'm told and the lower are the tail lights. Them lights got to go also. There is much better looking stuff on the market now days.

What's it got for an engine?

It wouldn't be all that hard to put a steering wheel on it, or even offset bars to the driver side with a simple linkage system.

Crazyness. Enjoy it dude!

motor is a VW 1600 duel port. stock there 40hp. hot turbo setup are 250HP

Slamdry 04-06-2011 09:19 AM

does it have the turbo yet?? if not it sooooo needs a Turbo lol!

Powersledder 04-06-2011 11:54 AM

That engine gets a 625% boost in HP just from a turbo? I have a hard time believing the internals of an engine designed for 40HP can handle 250.

Slamdry 04-06-2011 12:14 PM

well obv you need to change a few things, but the engine is possible of creating those kind of numbers.

OCR 04-06-2011 03:57 PM

You do have to put thicker head gaskets on if you do turbo it.

blue avenger 04-06-2011 05:13 PM

they can bore and stroke them to over 3000cc. only thing that may be stock at this point is the oil drain plug.

I was having so much fun up and down the short gravel street, I forgot and went around the corner, grabbed third ( this was going quite well in my mind!) flew up the 2 blocks to the next corner. I did not look at the speed but am fairly sure it was over the posted 30mph. The adrenalin was pumping and the corner was close! It was then remembered I had NO BRAKES. After rapid down shifting, making the corner, still on 3 wheels and missing the church group playing ball in the street I was under some control again. Slowly driving home now, I parked it and took the keys away from myself!

DirtylilWolfess 04-07-2011 09:31 AM

Ha! Dumbass! That'll learn you!

...I would've done the same thing!

Yes, doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results. :poops:

blue avenger 04-07-2011 06:12 PM

Brakes work, now I NEED WHEELY BARS! That thing stand up straight almost as fast as the TT500 did.

DirtylilWolfess 04-07-2011 06:54 PM

That's kinda exciting when you're only using one hand.

Slamdry 04-08-2011 02:14 PM

i would deff be doing something about the bar set up.. i feel i would want two hands at all times lol

blue avenger 04-08-2011 04:12 PM

Gotmud 04-09-2011 11:49 AM
