View Full Version : Help with Mods...Rat Rod/Mad Max

12-29-2016, 04:49 AM
I'm wanting to MOD my 01 Blast to the Rat Rod Style or Mad Max style. I have not seen anything like that and I really like the style. I know other bikes would be better but I don't own other bikes and my vision would be perfect for the blast. What I ask from you all is help find where I could get parts...like a bobber style seat and would it be able to have a back fender. Those are just a few...any ideals would be great...I'd upload photos as the build begins.

Google board tracker blast. There's actually some pretty sweet ones. Even some twins built into board trackers that are pretty damn cool

I like the first one a lot. That exhaust and seat is sweet. Where would I get things like that? And where is the battery???

i believe thats a frame made by "redneck" choppers. Not sure where the battery would be unless its stuffed in the other side of the oil tank?

I saw you had a broken link at the beginning of your photo post, so I fixed it and put it at the end so the other posts reference properly.

Thanks jetlee. I didn't feel like re entering it lol. But the flat track blast is well worth looking at!

Those are all very cool mods, but not the style I was looking to go. Also those would end up costing more than the bike is worth. I want more of a MAD MAX style....wanna look rough but clean at the same time. I have the plans in my head of will try to post picks as I get things done.

I've seen pics of that bike jetlee has hacked up, more than once, before this. It's a pretty good example of how to go about making a post-apocalyptic/survival bike out of a Blast, I think.

My own Blast is kinda trending that way, too,almost by accident. I bought it a few years ago, and it was very yellow. It had a couple aftermarket parts on it already, but I started by taking things off (the yellow plastic, to be specific). If you want to give your Blast a bit of the after-the-bomb look, the quickest and easiest way to get started is probably to just remove the flyscreen, tank cover, and tail plastic. That, and don't replace the timer cover when it falls off (I lost three of the damned things before I gave up and decided it looked better exposed anyway).

Here's a recent pic of my Blast, recently christened "Gristle":


I don't think I'm done changing it, yet. Next . . . maybe handguards; maybe getting rid of some of that black plastic around the lights and license plate at the tail end.; maybe bolting some ammo cans on the back for cargo space.
