Hey Guys,

Thought I'd introduce myself and my Indy Blade ... after having bikes for years I decided to finally scratch the itch I've had all along - a fast car!

I bought her a couple of weeks ago, after looking for ages for the 'right one'. This one just fitted the bill perfectly. TBH I wanted to build an Indy myself but with a young family and work it just wasn't going to happen! Got plenty of 'fettling' planned though!!

It's a 2005 with an 893cc Blade lump running fairly stock I think.

Thanks in advance for all the assistance, and answering my stupid questions!!!

Welcome aboard.
Looks very nice
Nothing wrong with the old 893, still more go than most driving skills, be careful in the snow!
Any idea who did the roll cage?

If it ain't broken, fix it anyway (just because).

Welcome to the Locostbuilders!

I was in the same position as you, young family, wanting to build, ended up buying and tinkering instead.

No regrets, saves a lot of time and you get the actual pleasure of driving it!

Looks like a nice tidy, looked after little beastie.

Seats look very comfortable, perfect for long tours.

Looking forward to more pic's and seeing what upgrades you do...


Cage definitely looks like a CAGED manufactured one.

Thanks everyone.

Cage is indeed by 'Caged' according to the stickers.

Looks nice

The builder must have liked the look of the rear arches being back to front,or they didn't realise they had done it!

I hadn't even noticed! Can't say for sure ... hopefully it was preference!!!

I too am about to join the Bec club once I find the "right one"

The big question is how does the car compare to the bike ??

I have read that the cars allow you to open the throttle much quicker as there is slightly less chance of an unexpected wheelie....

I love it! The power delivery is great. For me it has all the smile factor of the bike, but without some of the draw backs! And my wife loves it too (which helps!!!)
