Default Ebay Turbo Warrior for sale.

Found this on Ebay. Not sure if it's someone on the forum or not. Doesn't look familiar to me.

Two things:
1. When I read the title of this thread I was certain it was going to be you selling the bike you just got put together. Glad to see that's not true!
2. It's amazing how little info the seller of that bike has included. Unless somebody lived in the neighborhood and could talk to the guy, this would be a sketchy purchase. He's given one blurry, sideways picture and zero technical info about the turbo or anything. Just promises that it's "built with the good parts". Haha, right....

It does look pretty shady though.

I sent the seller a message asking for as much information about the bike and turbo set up as possible. we'll see if he gets back to me.

I like my bikes like I like my toasters. You hit the button and it fires up and does it's job. Guys with turbo warriors are always tinkering with their bikes. I'd rather ride. I guess if I had 6 bikes 1 of them could be a turbo for days when it rains and I have nothing better to do. There are much cheaper and less time consuming ways to go fast. Tinker on though. Makes for good reading. Certainly better than another clutch cable adjustment recommendation.

With a metal airbox it's capable of 200 hp.

Dang, I need one of those airboxes!

My bike is capable of 200 hp too. Just need to stick a V6 in it...

Oh, and possibly the worst photo I have ever seen. Looks like a scan (low res) of a Kodak Brownie photo from 50 years ago shot through a mayonnaise jar.
