Hi there, I'm new here and hope you can help me with a question.
I'm planning on buying a '98 blackbird with 61000km. Ok it is used, but in good shape.
During my test drive I found that the gearbox wount always accept shifts from 2nd to 3rd gear. All other shifts, up and down work good. When I retry to shift into 3rd it works ok. Anyone any ideas on this?

Second question when I'm doing some 120km/h and release the throttle a bit so that
there is no more traction on the chain the bike starts to vibrate on the pedals.
What could that be...

blackbird gearboxes are generally troublefree.If the problem cannot be fixed by adjusting the chain then it is likely to be either worn dogs on the gears or bent/worn selector forks.Unfortunately no adjustment is possible.Just make sure the price you pay reflects the repair costs.
