Thanks Old Iron.
I bought a tail light, foot peg assembly, hand guard, clutch and brake perch clamps, side cover, and some fasteners. About a thousand bucks.
The heat shield, right side passenger peg are scraped but for now I'm leaving them alone.
My kid put bar end mirrors on it. They were trashed but he had the originals so that was easy.
The frame got a dime sized ding by the passenger peg mount. That did the bike in, 5k for a frame and 3k labor.
It doesn't bother me.
Oh the joystick on the left switch gear that changes the display is busted. That switch is back ordered.
That's it, easy fix.
The bike however will now have a salvage title killing resale value.
I plan to ride the hell out of it, not sell it.
Ya great looking bike. A classic look.
Kinda reminds me of the early scramblers.
When they took a street bike and just wrapped
the pipes around the side.
Even the layed over twin shock setup lends to a classic
The Big Scrambler got through inspection, CT DMV issued a new tag, and now it's time to ride it.
The bike is very tall and I'm still getting used the tippy feeling I get when I'm around or on it.
The height is an advantage once you are moving. I can see better and I believe I'm more visible.
Standing up seems perfectly natural.
I rode part of The Trans. Mass Trial yesterday. It's a dirt road ride from the CT border to VT with asphalt mixed in between the dirt. I've ridden these roads on an Airhead Beemer and had fun. But the Scrambler is a whole new level.
That road is Fred Snow Rd. In Beckett Ma.
A route was mapped out from Colebrook Ct. to Greenfield Ma.
It's called The Trans Mass Trailway.
Mostly dirt roads connected by short streches of pavement. Cars travel these roads, and they are well maintained. It makes a nice leisurely ride.
Any street bike could do the route, the Big Scramler eats it up.
