NEWS FLASH!!! : Canada's only V8 Chopper trike GETS A NEW OWNER!!
And that new owner is me!!!
It has been a whirlwind week for me in dealing on this trike...thinking the deal was dead in the water...then buying a 502 Boss Hoss and then this deal does comes thru...
It is a 2008 with very, very few miles..under 500... but needs some TLC...the pictures don't show it but it does need it..the pictures are also not the true color...shows red but color is actually more gold in person...the pictures are from the website of the selling motorcycle shop.
I flew out there (British Columbia) this week for a demo ride Thursday and completed the deal today..thanks actaully to the advice of my wife who said yesterday to offer them X Dollars or walk...I took her advice and ended up with the unit..that is the short version of the story. I love my wife!!
I am really looking forward to getting it and putting it into a clean / show condition again and putting some miles on it...the 30 miles i did on the demo were very nice other than a few issues and non were manufacturer related...maintanence things that need to be addressed...out of balance front tire etc...nothing major. The trike was used by them for 4 years for short trips to shows etc and the odd demo ride.
It seems to have a very lumpy cam...sounds / feels snottier than any 385 Boss Hoss ZZ4 I have had..not sure why...the motor is supposedly only about 290Hp. Seems to go pretty good for the bit I tested the power with the Powerglide tranny.
It needs a windshield, albeit small for sure because even with the full face I can feel the wind a bit on my eyes and with "dry eye syndrome" I cannot afford any more damage.
Will it be for sale?? Not sure..time will tell. I beleive somebody is going to get a huge woody for the unit once it gets here and we make the condition of the trike a 9 out of 10 and then I will decide.
it will get here before the BB so I can ride it for a few weeks and then switch between units as the winds change and the urge hits.
I guess I drank the coolaid somewhere...hahahha
Life is fun and Life is GREAT!! Not sure if it gets any better...
PS...Hey Perv...How do I do the BLUE /PINK smoke thingy????
