    My Blowsion painted Kawasaki 650sx score...

    A week or so ago I was cruising craigslist one evening and came across a 650sx that had jut been posted. When I clicked on the ad I saw that it was an old blowsion painted ski. Although some may not be into wild paint I think it's cool and adds to the nastalga of a vintage ski.
    I was the first to contact the owner so he gave me first crack at it. Therefore, I drove up to Beaverton, OR from Salem and snatched it up last Friday evening. Crazy thing is, later that night I saw on Blowsion FB page that the owner and painter of Blowsion, Johnny Dady had passed away that morning Very sad stuff.

    I look forward to dropping a nice fresh 750 in it this winter and getting her back on the water once again. If there is interest I will keep this thread going as it goes together.

    Blowsion 0 degree bars and finger throttle
