  7. If you guys dont mind helping out a minibike novice...

    This one is for sale locally, guys claim it is a 50-60s sears model. Does that sound right? Anything to look for when i check her out?

    Looks like an old sears model. The seat and gas tank are not stock. Go to minidoodle.com and scroll to the Sears mini bike photos and you will find one that looks identical to your photo except for the seat and tank. I am not an expert nor will I ever be!
     
  9. You could also go to oldminibikes.com
    And search there pictures too
    Becareful its an addiction

  17. Hey Murf
    Where did the foot pegs go?:D
    A mid '70's ATC 70 was the first motorized bike I ever rode. I seem to be a day late whenever they pop up on CL.

    JShaw - those look great! Are they waterslide or vinyl?

    Murfman - those are cool. I've never seen a stock 3-wheel mini before

    I'll answer for Jeff since he's not on here every day. They are vinyl with a front backer to make burnishing them on without bubbles much easier. Absolutely the coolest logo out of our buddy JEEM from here on the H.A.M.B.

    They were still getting powder coated when I took the pics. I'm up to 5 of them now, 4 of them with E-start 110cc Lifan motors and one with a 150cc Manual Clutch. That is a handful!
     
  21. I just picked up an old mini bike frame, I have been trying to identify it. I will have to post a pic.

    Type in Manco Minibike on Ebay and you'll find some parts, also the guys on http://www.oldminibikes.com/forum/ are very helpful and have parts for sale everyday.

    Picked this up last weekend at a farm auction.
    Seat covering is in good shape.
    From the looks of the forks and the chipped paint without any rust on the bare metal , someone got careless and bent them slightly when setting up for the auction.
    Incomplete motor , but I have a few to choose from.
    Had to give $50 for it.
