    Thanks for sharing the Hotshots. At one time these bikes were a mere legends with little documentation.

    BearKat engine mount plate rubbers.

    How bearkat did the motor mounts is a puzzle to me. How did they weld them together without melting the rubber?

    Bearkat Twister serial# Engine size ?

    The Briggs model 140000 motor started with a HP rating of 5 3/4hp, and was upgraded to 6hp when the coil/flywheel polarity was changed. This caused a lot of confusion when ordering parts. Information on this motor was left out of many Briggs manuals.

    Bearkat Twister serial# Engine size ?

    Bearkat was bought by Todd sales in Phoenix. They developed the Twister in 1964 using a 6hp Briggs motor.

    Bearkat Twister serial# Engine size ?

    This ad states the motor was "Tecumseh 6-HP all aluminum motor". You may notice in the 'EQUIPMENT AVAILABLE'... "Optional 8 1/2 HORSEPOWER Gov't Rated 2 CYLINDER MOTOR (Special Order Only)". I wish I had more information on that option.

    The second sprocket may have been added to vary the gear ratio in different trail conditions. Nice Twister! The Sportsman sticker was added but not factual.

    Tote Gotes

    The original Tote Gote fenders for the 760 had compound curves and are very hard to find.
