now that the devorce is done, i wound-up with home and store. oh,and a monthly pay out.
now i find myself remembering my x1 fondly. wont get one anytime soon either! then a 78 SR500 falls into my hands. going cafe with it since it has a really good motor and straight frame. gonna bob the rear fender 6 inches, form a new saddle,so much can be done ... gonna have fun building it.
on topic however. i never had a blast that worked. had a couple x1s, but this'll be different. skinny tire and '78 engineering!

Don't know much about it. Just seen it on the net. Pre 1930's, Does this mean this could be Grand-Paw Blast?

It still amazes me that anyone ever though a total loss oiling system for the valves was a good idea. The good old days weren't so good. : )

Very nice! Not sure I'd trust my own common sense to stop me with a coaster brake at 35mph, but I'll give it a shot!!

Don't think I could trust the coaster brake either. Road Rash isn't a fun part of riding.

Do like the look.

All seeing Eye of RA. There is a big following for gy6/qmb139 scooter/moped racing especially South America also a company in Florida supports a gy6 drag bike that is pretty wild.

I cannot afford to own a bike anymore. What got me interested in them was there below DOT don't have to pay Insurance, Tax and License. The problem is 50cc or below, 2 HP limit won't climb the hills around here. I would still like to build a vintage board track racer replica on the cheap.

SFMC has the Secret Society Scooter club - their grail is the ton. CF frames, wheels, ti parts and outrageous hot rodding - I wouldn't put it past them to achieve that some day.

Current record is just over 77mph. Streamliner type record is almost double, but it's not streatable in any way shape or form, while the other record holder is - lol

Yeah - there are some wildly fast 49/50cc scoots out there - SF area are fans of them as well. There was a kid who worked at a cafe - his scoot had a ti frame and cf wheels and it screamed like a banshee when it ran - lol - one of the secret society of SF!

Seen it done with an S3 as well - that thing is so heavy - I see no hope of it beating a Blast.

Its a homebuilt 500cc single heavily modified is the reason I posted it. Aaron may know a little more about the bike maybe. Looks he was running a different class anyway.

Pulling a cylinder off a twin Harley and making it run- easy!
Now, adding a cylinder to the Blast, not so easy!!\

Early 70's Triumph Parallel Twin Engine in a Blast chassis maybe? At least you could still call it a Thumper.

Hi Edward,

Thanks very much for your interest in the PGM V8.

The bikes are made to order with a current price of USD$180K.

There is a delivery time of approx 12 months but we are working to reduce this time.

As for dropping 50lbs, consider for a moment just what you are getting for this weight and then compare this to any of the big dual purpose trailies around at the moment....

Kind regards

Paul G Maloney

Regardless of shedding 50 lbs. still a lot of motor for a little bike. Would like to see how the PGM preforms.

Since Montana has many more dirt roads than paved, I added this to the garage. I could've Ulyfied the XBlast or off-roaded a Blast, but this seemed a better choice (and I've wanted one forever).

The reviews say the 390 is an overweight underpowered wannabe. It's just a cool looking standard, nothing more. Very disappointing. But we'll see how it's history plays out. It is a good looking bike.

It's about the enjoyment my friend . . . .
