Gas Shocks, Trail Buddy, and the near rebirth of Scary Busey


Decided to give Scary Busey a double dose of pimping and upgrayedd the shocks. I liked the shocks Christophe used on his Daggr1 one build (west seattle just got a set too).
When I looked into where those guys got them (, I was surprised to find out it was a half hour away! So I swung by to pick up a pair and check out the shop.

I starting talking shop with one of the owners. I love sharing a passion for small cc vintage bikes with people. They’ve got some crazy Honda Trail builds.

So I snagged a rad set of gas shocks from them and slapped them on Scary Busey. They took a little adapting to make work. But between stealing a stock set of Puch shock bushings,

then sliding them into the bottom gas shock bushings,

and then making a fancy cut up hose clamp shim for the top bushing mount,

they turned out ship shape and real solid!

I also finished buttoning the motor up.

The final parts for him came in the mail today. Tonight he sits waiting. Tomorrow, hopefully he comes roaring back to life.

Easy buddy.

    lookin’ good man, cant wait to see it finished up. i reckon i’ll need to get a set of those shocks pretty soon also. it looks like a lot of similar ones are sold on ebay from a variety of china sources, but taking the plunge to get some that nobody else has tried is kindof a crap shoot.

  4. Yes! Those dudes are rad!

    Looking good my friend
