NEW Video of My '58 Trailblazer - Close Up Of Paint!!!
« on: May 02, 2013, 02:35:28 PM »
Alright, I think I got the carb and timing set correctly now.  Nice low thump on the idle and pretty smooth acceleration.  Also the sun is shining today so I put in a close up of the paint.   ;)

I have another video I'm going to try to post tonight of me taking off down the street.  Man does my bike sound mean!  I love it!    :D :D :D

Skip to about 35 seconds for the ride back, stupid slow truck.

B-e-a-utiful paint job.  It sounds mean.  Eats lightning/craps thunder mean.

That is one bad ride.

Scottie, if you haven't seen them already you'll probably dig ERC's builds.  Real nice rides.  Check'm out if you can bare waiting for the photo gallery to load.  The Apache is sweet.  If you go previous or next you can see more pics of each.

Thanks everyone!  I am freaking in love with this bike.  Maybe my wife is right.   ::)  LOL

ERC - I think the auto-advance has gotten itself freed up now.  Still sticking a little from time to time, but no more getting stuck at full advance and dieseling when I shut it off.

Ice - That's so kind.  I always wanted to have the bike that others envied.     ;D

I can't say enough about the exhaust on this bike.  I know it's freaking loud, and I'm a fan of loud pipes, with in reason, that sound good, and I generally don't have exhaust this loud.  But my bike just sounds so nasty and mean.  EVERYONE I've started for immediately mentions how nice it sounds.

I honestly had never heard of Royal Enfield until I got this bike, and now I say it with pride "It's a '58 Indian Trailblazer...  But it's actually a Royal Enfield."  Funny.  All the 'Ol Timers can tell it's not American made.    :D
