Title: Finally! I got another Bandit!
Post by: Atomika on September 26, 2009, 23:22:36
After all these years, I finally got another Turbo Bandit like the one I got for Xmas when I was 9. And @ $25 it was a steal. I tore the whole thing apart and cleaned it good. It sounded like crap when I got it so I took the transmission all apart and scrubbed everything down good with a toothbrush and some Mean Green. I then re-lubed it with some Marine gear lube and some 3-in-1 oil. It screams now:)

It's like bein 9 yrs old all over again :D

20 years of crud and this was after it soaked in Dawn & Mean Green for an hour.

That looks cool. I had a Bandit like that when I was about 13 or 14. Where did you find that for $25?

A local tv station out here has a classified adds section. I found it on there. A guy in a lil podunk town south of SLC had it.
