    Buell swaps?

    So Redneck engineering has this frame kit you can pick up for about 3 grand.. and you can pretty much swap your entire buell blast into the thing.. slap some paint and a seat on it and you have a pretty crazy looking bike. Was wondering if anyone has seen any other Buell Blast frame kits.

    Dont get me wrong.. I do like the way that looks.. I think I would prefer something a little less.. in your face.

    these guys do some of the same work too.. I only really like the pea shooter. It scares me a bit to not have anything between my backside and the rear tire.

    Blasts are almost free. Hopefully they'll drop down a bit more so that I can get paid to haul them off.

    A shame about the no kicker thing.

    I suppose my point is.... ya'd have to knock one out of the park to ever come out in the black doing a blast custom based on a frame costing three large.

    I don't see it happening often.

    yea.. its the poor mans motorcycle mod.. It has two wheels, goes and stops when I tell it to. I will say this for the blast.. it corners like nothing else I have ever ridden. I have to be careful not to scrape pegs when I am making a milk run. It also holds up while I am rebuilding the M2 cyclone that some jack-wagon decided to take apart and leave in pieces in his garage for 3 years *twitch*. Or while I try to restore the old school TS90 and the Montessa Scorpion I found in my father in laws garage... sigh.. too many projects.

    I dig them except for lacking a kicker.

    They are plentiful and nearly new ones can be had for a song.

    I'd customize one, just doubt I'd hurt myself the three large for a frame, from the getgo.

    Diminishing returns and all....

    heh.. yea.. thats why I was looking for a cheaper one :-X. On a side note.. I guess I can start a post for the TS90 in the project section.. except that I only have the seat and tank right now to clean up until I can track down a trailer. Anyone done a rebuild on a Suzuki TS90? Actually.. instead of hijacking my own thread. ill just start another.

    I can't even spell TS90...

    Are you wanting to make a blast chopper or cafe?

    If cafe..... why a frame since it already handles well?

    That Redneck Engineering thing looks like some of the chopped stretched Vespa's that used to appear in magazines.
    You can build a Blast motor all the way to 890cc

    Ron wood and C&J made flat track frames for the blast. I think there are about 20 or so racebikes floating around out there with them. Everytime I see one for sale it is like $7000, I think the frames alone were pretty expensive. It is a shame they discontinued the class, because I was hoping more would be made and become cheaper and trickle down to a street bike.
    I would actually pay $3000 for a tracker roller chassis rather than that redneck engineering chop, regardless if I came out in the black on the back end. I can't ride a current blast because it is too small, something with raised up suspension and a better chassis that puts it at about the size of an SR500 I could do.
