Happy Thanksgiving. Your post is one of the worst first posts of all-time.

Really? That doesn’t mean much to me coming from a guy from a state with a socialist representative and bunch jobless trust fund tree huggers. I spent 2 years in VT. Everyone there is either doing bong hits on the way to the ski hill with their daddy’s credit card or pumping gas at "cumby farms" to pay of the satellite on the roof of their trailer. Let’s not mention that your cars all rust to sh!t after 6 years and you have to import all of your rods from MY southern state. I can honestly say:

Your State is one of the worst states of all-time.

Have a nice day!

nah, I think what he was referring to is the bullshit spam link.

either contribute something useful to the board, or go peddle your shit somewhere else.

no ebay links allowed here.

I didnt mean to break the rules, sorry. Ah shows... well at the little shows here, it is part of the show to bring your minis, vintage schwinns and stuff... Plus I drag race all my rods so having a "pit bike" is a real life saver at a large track on a 100 degree day. (something the VT liberal wouldnt know anything about )

I go through cars like my passengers go through clean undies. Here is a pic of the volk-rod that I am building at the moment:





2110 10:1 skat stroker. Yangs the front wheels up down on main st at will. I eat up a lot of 5.0s and sh!t with it (not haten, I got 5.0s too)

Here is my BSA rat babber too



Is that better?

I had a "LiL Indian" that was very similar to that minibike you restored. Only differences I can remember were that my handlebars had knobs that allowed them to fold down, my front fork had shocks, I THINK it had a motorcycle style tank and it had lights. If I could ever find another I'd buy it in a heart beat. It was dark green.

How about let's not ruin this thread with bashing. It's a recurring topic.

Fordman - It's not polite to just drop in and post an ad using a forum to promote your agenda.

I did notice you joined up to oldminibikes.com and didn't spam, so I'll give you half credit.

Otherwise let's keep this to Vintage minibike memories and current rides.
