Hey Bronc - is that crossbar on the handlebars stock?
Since it's Barris's birthday and all, I'll post some bad pics of my Barris Chopper
Great thread! Vintage minibikes are the perfect way to get around a larg car shows too!
I got a classic Rupp that I am getting rid of here
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!
ohh snap! hahahaha...nice comeback! you'll fit in well here!!!!
but what i think he was referring to is.....at traditional shows, no mini bike riding is allowed...then on top of that, you post and ebay link...which is against the rules here!
anywho...welcome to the hamb!
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.
Yeah, i mentioned that...never clicked it, cause i dont do so, but i assumed it was something for sale!
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?
haha,,,you make fun of hippies and you drive bug with the peace hand on the frt???? your killin me!!!!!LOL
i do dig the bike!! bsa's are my fav brit bike!
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.
Volksrod. BSA Rat "babber"...Well, I imagine someone else will step in now and take care of this...
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.
Sorry for the delay in answering. Crossbar on handlebars is stock.
#### Only if they smell like fish !! >>>>.
Here's one my buddy has.
Hope this works.Red wheels black frame with 50s briggs power 3frd. i rev.no brakes FUN!!
I just scored this bad motor scooter tonight. Not too bad for 60 bux.
195? Homelite trail king
1959 Tote Gote
1974 Alsport tri-sport
197? rupp go joe
And the wifes chopper built from scratch for her by her uncle.
Nice collection there.
here's some footage from our minibike toys for tots run:
Here's my custom creation. I call it EL GOOZANITO
I also have this complete Dave Gratton- Rock Hound that I scored at a yard sale for $20
A friend called me one day and said his neighbor had an old mini bike out in his trash. Several hundred dollars later here it is. I must say I had more fun putting this one together. It is a 1969 Rupp Goat. Being a street rodder I had to do some changes. It's my Hardley-A-Davidson I put a 5hp Honda replacment motor in it.
Some pics of my mid-'60s Quarter Horse.
The seat flips up after removing the quick-pin, so you can fill the bottle-shaped main frame tubes that double as the fuel tank with pre-mix gas.
Here's one that still has all of the 'street' equipment on it.
Sweet! There are so many different kinds of mini bikes out there.
I built this in middle school out of crap I got at the town dump. I took it to a couple local bike shows and did pretty well.
All that snow leaves only a small red crossmember of your bike showing in the pic.
ok lets see if this works
Do these count? Mid 70's Chappy's, a '71 SL70 and a '74 XL70. From when I had the sickness...
