I'm a long time car/bike guy just starting to put together an older mini bike, around a frame I recently bought.. I sure could use a few minutes talking to a guy like you.
I was reading some older posts you did about the Harbor Junk motors but couldn't see your pictures.
If you would be willing i would love to call you. I'm in Camarillo, CA. If you would drop your tele # to me at email@example.com (you can check me out at TheHomeMag.com, Ventura County location) I would be forever grateful.
I fear that a purist may not approve another recent purchase i made, that is a Big Dog oversive mini bike, 18" wheels - wonder what you think of them??
As a point of interest, i also have a '08 Whizzer, totally redone with all the junk stripped off.
I owned a 1971 J.C. Penney ElTigre as an 11 year old. I would love to know where I might find an El Tigre to restore. I don't even know anyone who has ever heard of them other than on this site. I currently own a custom made orange county chopper that I cruise around with, but I can't get that old ElTigre off my mind. It was my first love!
Any ideas or direction you could give me would be greatly appreciated. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 603-505-2301. OUr spam filter is pretty aggrssive on our server, so if you don't get an immediate automatic verification message back, please try to call me.
