Finally! I got another Bandit!
« 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?
"Hello IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again? ... OK, well, the button on the side. Is it glowing?... Yeah, you need to turn it on. Err, the button turns it on. Yeah, you do know how a button works, don't you? No, not on clothes." - Roy (The IT Crowd)

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.
