HOME MADE MINIBIKE
Here is a picture of a home made minibike built by Vince. Any how the bike is built out of an old mongoose bike frame,some gas pipe,weight bench,bed frame, fence post,the rear tire and sprocket are off of a craftsman lawn tractor.A friend had the motor laying arround his shop (8 horse) it was off of a log splitter didn`t run at the time it needed a carb, I bought the gas tank for $5.00 at a junk yard. Front brake is a standard bicycle brake. The 8 inch disc break assy is for a lil indian go cart $40.00,Max torque go cart clutch $80.00 thr rear bearings $25.00 each and some flat steel stock from home depo$10.00. The head light,speedometer and tail light are for a standard bicycle and last but not least my welder and some imagination!!
This is a super job, and I think anyone if they put there mind to it can build one as well. I like it.
Below are pictures of a homemade old Rupp style that Mark Neubert built for his daughter
He found a really nice Tecumseh 5hp motor on a snow blower, in the trash, and started from there.
