I'm not sure if I have emailed you before.Were you looking for a west bend 700 engine?
I have one for sale in the $300 range that is rebuilt with mount.
I can send pix if you need them.
Hi Lon; As nice as it is that's WAY over your self indisposed spending limit LOL . And that guy seems to pop up with a lot of goodies and the more we talk about a certain bike the higher the price goes. Have a great Christmas. Steve

I have been reading the messages on the Oldminibikes.com site and waxing nostalgic.
I still have the engine from my capercycle which I purchased in the early sixtys. My Dad stored the machine for many years and then sold the bike less engine to a friend. Don't know if you are still looking for one? I can send some pictures if interested. I still remember how my fingers would sting when that little 2 cycle would back-fire at times when starting it.

Hey oldsalt, I just picked up a new mini bike and have been having trouble finding any info on it at all. GTO mentioned that you used to have one like it and might know more. I posted some pics in the "What is it" forum under "Mini Bike ID" so if you get a chance see what ya think. Any help would really be appreciated. Thnx
Hey oldsalt; Since I grew up in WW, I would love to catch up with you. I had a short
email chat with caperman regarding Ben Hunt, etc. I hung out a lot at their shop in the
late 50s. Ran an Apache cart which was Ben's compatition in WW and I'm now trying
to locate a caper cart which seems harder to find then caper cycles.......Let's chat.

Lon, Im shure the fenders are the original Both my Caper Cycles have the same fenders. I also met another guy with a Caper Cycle with the same fenders. I have an original brochure I will post and it shows the fenders. I need another set of fenders for my third Caper Cycle. If there's anything I can do to help just let me know.
Please excuse lateness of reply. The tank heads are aluminum pieces that are used to block off 3-1/2" hose. Got them at a truck repair shop that also does tank repair. The body of the tank is simply a piece of 3-1/2" aluminum tube that was also acquired at the truck shop. The gas cap and fitting were made on my lathe. But I'm sure there are simplier ways of suppling a method for filling. I am blessed by the fact that I have a TIG for such work.
Very best regards,
I saw one of your bikes on the photo gallery. I was wondering where you got your fuel cell from? Im reffering to the round cylinder type tank on one of your mini's. Do you know a site where I can view them? Any info. would be appreciated. Thx for your time
