    Speaking of the roundup!!! Click on it a couple of times and it'll get big enough to really see. If your in Phoenix on Monday and like Mini Bikes, you owe it to your self to attend!

  6. Is that the same Ron who's house you took me to? What a cool guy!

    If you guys are there to try to beat Ron's bike, you had better come with something stout. His bike is bitchin', and looks like it's going 35mph standing still!

    I wish I was closer, I'd bring my '69 Mini Trail.

    Big Threat?! I had to tap you on the helmet to remind you that the flag cuitie dropped the flag! You were too busy trying to do a burn out... 'Course, I was stuck in the track prep and eventually swallowed a cricket the size of my schnauzer at the top end...

    I wish I could get guys around here to get into mini-bikes, I've had mine for 42 years.... and ride it most everyday.

    Here is a FB page for vintage mini bike fans. Its directed more towards the Arizona guys but all are welcome: www.facebook.com/arizonavintageminibikeassociation

    We had a great time at Ron Olmsteads today. Thanks again to Ron and his family for the hospitality.

    Our next get-together is going to be in October sometime. Most likely the saturday before Halloween. Its going to be held in the QC/Gilbert area. We are going to try to flip flop between the east and west sides of town for each event. that way no one side of town has to do all the driving.

    we are also going to be trying to race in december at the QC equestrian riding center. we watched some great flat track races there last weekend and its a beautiful facility. check out there FB sites at: www.facebook.com/qcflattrack and: www.facebook.com/flattrackin

    Sounds like fun! Keep me in the loop please. Any chance you could post the video of my Police encounter over on the MINI BIKE DAY thread? You guys have to know that was on of the few times that I DIDN'T end up in trouble!

    I had a 3.5 Bonanza but my brother had a 5hp Rupp with a 2 speed jackshaft assy. We took off the governor (of course) and that thing was flat scary! Wish I had taken pictures of them, but, at 12 years old, uh, the cameras were a little different then and hard to come by (1970). We rode the Hell out of those mini bikes in the Seneca, MD countryside..... H
