As most of you know, the Buell Blast was designed as an entry-level motorcycle to get people into the H-D family. This one’s barely been used and seems like it would work just fine at its intended design if a new rider wanted something less ubiquitous than a R3 or Ninja 400.
With a 500cc single-cylinder engine, the Blast was good for 34 horsepower and 30 lb-ft of torque. Unique to the Blast (as opposed to the Japanese entry-level competition) was belt drive and the interesting material used for the bodywork: Surlyn, the same stuff used as part of the outer shell on golf-balls.
This example has just 175 miles and it’s been given a fresh battery and a carb clean so it’s “ready to go.” Find this Blast for sale in Downers Grove, Illinois for $2,300 here on Craigslist.
