    Is he doing alittle mudding?
    Or is he throwing a long roost:)
    He's going to be eyeballing the blaster in a few years.

    He’s already all about the blaster. He knows how to kick it and everything. I take him for rides and let him use the thumb throttle DCEA1F17-CC5C-4E25-979A-DB876C808527.jpeg

    He definitely already rips. I just typically stand at one spot and let him do the laps.

    Here is my latest project. The Edge Products Sidewinder. Had a vrf400 on it that last owner killed. included was a vrf750 but is way to big and heavy for it. Going to sell the 750 and get a single or twin cylinder engine for it and tidy it up a lot.

    has brand new sprockets and chain included, Brand new rod ends for steering and rubber loots for rack.
    Need to replace rear disc and pads or caliper. And yes has front hubs and wheels included, Just not in the photos. :)

    This is a photo of it I found online from years ago.

    Yeah custom is your friend. :)

    Mine is a series 1 Sidewinder one of there 1st designs, and soon to be a Frankenstein one. I am replacing all the rear swing arm axle setup for the later model setup that extends swing arm 58mm. Axle 100mm wider. Also design is different. Front end I also looking at upgrading. Replacing the old shortened mini rack with a 2/3 turn lock-to-lock rack. Pedals also getting upgrade.

    CNC cut one i did for testing and fitment.

    This is the later model version of the swing arm.

    Will the rear swinger swap right out?

    Yip. easy swap. mounting brackets are same width apart. Upper shock mount maybe the only thing needing looked at.
