    1968 Rupp XL-500 - What's it worth?

    Welcome to the site. Like many others before you, they acquire a cool old bike and want to know the value. That is a very popular inquiry here, however, it is "against the rules", and for good reason. It literally is worth what someone is willing to pay. With that said, you have a very...

    Anyone seen a Arctic Cat Screamer for sale resently??

    And just like that, another rare, vintage, competition model mini bike will live on. Went to a good home.

    72 Arctic Cat Prowler... starting from not much!

    Yep it appears to be a Ramrod/Screamer/Climber sprocket. I dont think the little 47cc sachs has enough grunt to take advantage of the larger rear sprocket gearing, but I'd be interested to hear how it does. You'll find out how pretty quick! That antenna does have that 70's van vibe. I now...
