I opened up the mailbox today expediting two fuel fittings for another bike that I got off evilbay but when I read where it came from it surprised me. It's kinda funny too because I had bitten the bullet and ordered a new tube and a new spoke from blackwidomotorsports and those came in last night. But now instead of just replacing a nipple I can replace a spoke that one of my classmates bent :hammer: he hit the peddle on the tire machine before I was ready and the arm got caught.
anyway I really appreciate all the help you've given me for this bike, The kindness of the members who have donated parts and knowledge only makes the bike that much more special to me. The project has come a long way and still has miles to go, hell I don't think I'll ever be "done" with it.
Once again thank you so much for everything, if you need me to send you anything for the two spokes I can and will in a heartbeat.
Just stumbled across this forum today and noticed you had posted a question about the Mini Mule awhile back. Did you get your questions answered? I had one when I was a kid. As you know they were manufactured in Ames by Donelson Inc. Donelson Inc also manufactured bicycles and ATVs. Their six wheeled ATV product was called the Swamp Fox and I believe that part of the business was later sold off. The company was originally based in Marshalltown before moving to Ames. The Mini Mule was a well built minibike. I believe it came with a 5 hp or 3.5 hp motor. Featured a torque converter. Also offered the options of a ski that fit over the front wheel for winter use and a track for the back wheel. Great bike!
Do you still have that red go-kart I saw a picture of in one of your posts? Looks exactly like a Funder Wheels go-kart I own from way back when I was a kid and am trying to rehab for my kids. I need a new body on it (the plastic cosmetic part, not the actual frame) and some other random parts. Just wondering if you've ever been able to find a place to get parts.
